Harry Browne & Habeas Corpus
By Jim Babka
Quote of the Day:

Some people say our program to reduce the federal government goes too far, that it throws the baby out with the bath water. But we have no choice -- this is Rosemary's baby we're talking about.

My show starts at 3:06 PM Eastern (2:06 PM Central, 1:06 PM Mountain, and 12:06 PM Pacific). And you are encouraged to participate!

Pamela Browne presents a brand New Product: Just released this week! FREEDOM THE AMERICAN WAY - Your future is in your hands

Freedom The American Way is a compilation of magazine articles, newspaper columns, and educational articles written by Harry Browne. They contain factual and well-reasoned economic, political, and business truths that are written in simple and to the point language that everyone can understand and appreciate. And they appeal to the readers self-interest.

Section 1:  Contains eleven American Progress/Freedom magazine articles that endeavor to educate and gain public support for the Liberty Amendment - a Constitutional amendment to reduce the size of government by restraining federal powers.

Section 2:  Contains twenty-nine The American Way newspaper columns that cover a wide range of topics from morality to unemployment to your savings account.

Section 3:  Contains thirty-one Your Future Is In Your Hands articles - part of a dynamic educational employer/employee program in which Harry presented each week one basic economic truth that could be quickly read and understood by the reader. The articles promoted free enterprise; reduction of government interference in employer/employee relations; and created in employees both the desire to be of greater value, as well as periodically offering specific methods for providing it.

This product is available for instant download -- you can have it minutes from now -- for just $9.95. For this, and other Harry Browne products, visit

Happy Listening,
