Rep. Pompeo to address Wichita Pachyderms

This Friday (May 31, 2013) the Wichita Pachyderm Club features U.S. Representative Mike Pompeo of Wichita. His topic is “Losing Our Freedom One Good Idea at a Time.”

Pompeo’s topic title reminds me of one of the “featured thoughts” at Voice for Liberty: “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” The author is C.S. Lewis.

The public is welcome and encouraged to attend Wichita Pachyderm Club meetings. Meetings are held almost every Friday in the Wichita Petroleum Club on the top floor of the Bank of America Building at 100 N. Broadway. The program starts at noon, and it is suggested that guests arrive by 11:45 am in order to get their lunch before the program starts. The meeting costs $10, which includes a delicious buffet lunch and beverage. For more information click on Wichita Pachyderm Club.
