Happy Birthday Lysander Spooner!

Lysander Spooner was born on this day in 1808. I've been interested in Lysander Spooner's works for a number of years now. Spooner is not very well-known today in large part because he was opposed to everything from slavery to big government in general and even competed with the United States Post Office long before UPS and Federal Express came onto the scene. In a nutshell, he was not and still is not politically correct.
