I am watching the ancient TV show (another Rankin and Bass special from the early 70s and it looks it, too!  Especially the scene where Jessica sings her solo about 2/3 of the way through the show) Santa Claus is Coming to Town and it has to be written by a libertarian!

I howled when the burgermeister banned toys because he tripped on a toy and got hurt and then tried to enforce his silly law banning toys.  It even almost reads like a real statute – just before the half way mark it is read out loud.  And it’s better than Fox News when the burgermeister is caught with a yo-yo given him by Kris Kringle – let me show off what I can really do!  One of his minions reminds him that he’s violating his own law!   Isn’t that just like Obamacare?

The only aspect of the Santa story that seems ominous is the all-seeing eye – good or naughty?  Certainly this analysis takes the words of the song for a critical column here at Classical Liberal!  Of course God has an all-seeing eye and we all must appear before Him and give account for behavior.  (For the answer to that judgment, go here to find out what Jesus did for us!

So I salute the unknown libertarian who assisted in this script (The plot is a clever take on the famous song of the same name) and brings us a needed reminder that there is a deep need for LIBERTY in the human spirit – placed there by the Creator – “Now the Lord is that Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty!”  II Cor 3:17(KJV)

Tom Mullen has a similar pro-libertarian column here!  Mullen adds the Little Drummer Boy for positive discussion, too.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
