Helen Krieble’s Liberty Minutes


Helen Krieble Examines National and Local issues Through the Lens of Liberty

When we understand principles of freedom, and then look closely at issues pertaining to government policies and politics from the perspective of those principles, the solutions become remarkably clear. Americans don’t have to—in fact have a responsibility NOT to—tolerate policies that violate the fundamental principles and conditions on which our country was founded.

We should all worry about our government’s ability to spy on us with today’s advancing technology. They say it makes us safer, but does it?”

The highly visible violations of our freedom at state and national levels are troubling, for sure, and Helen addresses many of them in her Liberty Minutes national radio spots that follow. But in cities, towns and neighborhoods across America, individual rights and other principles of freedom are continually being snatched away from a sleepy and often unaware citizenry.

Helen’s Liberty Minutes are a wake-up call to Americans who may have forgotten how to recognize common violations of their freedom from a perspective of responsibility, knowledge and principles.

Change the Rules

Why does America have to depend on foreign countries for so much of our energy? We don’t have to, but we allow the federal government to regulate and restrict the development of our own energy resources. It’s time to fight back.

Blind Leading the Blind


Do we really need federal “experts” to help local communities create agricultural action plans? Consumers can figure out for themselves that buying from local farmers boosts the local economy.

Can I Give You a Lift


Overzealous regulators yield to pressure from taxi lobbyists to restrict competition— “special rights for special groups” is a common government over-reach and a violation of our individual rights.

Do as I Say Not as I Do

Sometimes the government protects eagles, other times it allows them to be killed by wind generators. It’s all about equal justice under the law: Prosecuting violations of the law by some and ignoring violations by others is an attack on freedom. Fairness matters in America.

Forgive Us Our Trespasses


It’s a clear over-reach when the government regulate how many inches a citizen’s door knobs must be from the floor in order to protect the neighbor’s child from wandering into their swimming pool. Who’s really responsible for that child’s safety?

Good Fences Bad Government


Here’s how a farmer’s local government tried to deny him the right to farm his own land because with nonesense law on fencing. The constituion prohibits governments from taking the personal property of its citizens, so this farmer fought back.

Hiring and Firing


Hiring good people, and firing bad ones, is essential to companies staying competitive. Too many government regulations unfairly restrict the nimbleness of businesses. A job is a privilege to be earned, not a right to be guaranteed by the government.

Kids Will Be Kids


The government says that if a horse at Helen’s horse park bites a child while the child pets him, Helen is liable—not the the owner of the horse, and not the child’s parents. Sometimes kids get hurt just being kids, and silly lawsuits are an infringement of freedom.

Not In My House


Unlawful intrusions—such as a tax inspector demanding to enter Helen’s home—are violations of our constitutional guarantee of no searches without a warrant. Freedom begins in your house, not the White House.

Powers of the Government

Polls show that many Americans believe the government can do whatever it wants to under the Constitution in the name of “what’s good for the people.” But who decides what’s good for the people? In fact, our Constitution places strict limits on the power of the government.
