Stopping freedom at the border

One interesting sidebar to the Liberty Summer Seminar this year was that a couple of scheduled speakers were denied entry at the Canadian/American border.

That would be Jason Talley and Pete Eyre of Motorhome Diaries.

What's Motorhome Diaries?

Well Talley and Eyre -- a couple of hard core libertarians -- are travelling across America in an RV "searching for freedom" and videotaping as they go.

They were supposed to make an appearance at the LSS, but alas overzealous Canadian border guards stopped their RV, searched their vehicle for "heinous propaganda" and ultimately told them to head back south.

Kady O'Malley has the whole story.

It's pretty sad when people talking about "freedom" aren't allowed in the country.

They should have claimed to be muzzie terrorists claiming refugee status.
