I met David Williams at one of my friend Amanda Muell's Liberty on the Rocks meetings earlier this year, though I had seen him at various public events over the last couple of years. He is an incredibly bright, energetic and perceptive libertarian lawyer who has one of the best websites around at .

Please don't miss his personal philosophy contrasting government and freedom entitled, Bluecarp, Without Apology (right side of page, scroll down). Here is an excerpt:

The United States government is the single largest employer in the country. This is obscene.

The government produces nothing of value. Nothing. Why are so many people necessary to produce nothing of value? They are not.

They are wasteful. Would that it were that was all. But they are worse than wasteful. They prevent actual production of value. The government makes it harder for people that wish to produce to do so.

David's articles are always passionate, on point and cheerful. He is a dedicated freedom activist who works tirelessly promoting freedom in an America dominated by both socialist (left) and fascist (right) thought.

My favorite recent articles by David are shown in the links below. My favorite of these is "Time to Refuse Federal Demands" (10-3-11). It gets to the very heart of the original American spirit based on individual freedom, limited government and the Bill of Rights which is supposed to protect us from government, but it is too often ignored.

Government Substandard, Too Expensive, or Both (11/20/11):

Nothing to See, Move Along (11/11/11-did the world end yet?):

Tax Money Wasted (11/5/11):

Time to Refuse Federal Demands (10-3-11):

The Glorious Killing of Alwaki (10-1-11):

Terrorism and Foreign Policy (9-12-11):

I have become a big fan of David's since I have been reading his website, which I highly recommend. For a lawyer, he doesn't mince words (partly a joke, since I have worked with about a hundred lawyers over the last 35 years. Some of the most concise, effective writing I've ever seen came from one of my lawyer friends). I for one appreciate David's brevity.
