One superb example of how individuals can protect liberty by positive public participation recently occurred when the Laramie County Commission decided to adopt a significantly amended and pared-down version of the 2014 PlanCheyenne Update.
Informed citizens put core principles to work during the PlanCheyenne Update discussion.

Recent discussion in our nation’s capital has focused on raising the minimum wage, and any discussion of the minimum wage is accompanied by significant debates by supporters and detractors. Whether or not you support an increase in the minimum wage, it’s important to recognize that there are undeniable facts that are frequently left out of the debate.
For those who don’t follow British politics, Britons went to the polls on May 6 and elected a new Parliament and a new government. No party got a clear majority. The Conservatives took the most seats, followed by Labour, then the Liberal Democrats. After much bargaining, the almost inevitable happened: the new government is a coalition between the Tories and the Lib Dems.
