Nay, they take BACK what was always theirs—the right to struggle, to strive, and to work together in peaceful, voluntary cooperation to achieve their goals.

    Thanks for sharing this. It’s good to see ordinary people with basic values taking steps to reclaim Detroit small pieces at a time. They have my support and I hope they are successful.

The left is just power to *some* people. Libertarianism is power to THE PEOPLE. All of us.
