Thanks much for visiting.
FREE WHITEWATER is a blog of libertarian political and social commentary from Whitewater, Wisconsin. FW is published pseudonymously by one person under the name JOHN ADAMS. The choice of the pseudonym is intentionally ironic: as president, Adams came to support speech restrictions that he earlier would have found intolerable as a patriot. There are no flawless politicians.
These few words provide a summary of the publisher’s views:
FOR INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY, LIMITED & OPEN GOVERNMENT, FREE MARKETS in CAPITAL, LABOR & GOODS, SOUND REASONING, and PEACE
FREE WHITEWATER began in 2007 with a confident message to all the residents of Whitewater, Wisconsin:
You have lived in Whitewater, Wisconsin for years, perhaps your entire life. Despite your affection for this beautiful city, life in our small municipality leaves you uneasy. You find yourself increasingly convinced that something is distorted, and wrong, in the politics and culture of our city. Rest assured: You are not alone…
A better city – whether small or large – requires a better politics, and a better politics requires sound and clearly-stated principles. Anything less is unworthy of the community of one’s attention and affection.
