Liberty Minutes


Helen Krieble’s Liberty Minute Podcasts

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.

Good Fences Bad Government

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.

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.

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.
