I had heard of these guys and just considered them as one of the countless legions of sheep that had too much time on thier hands until today. I was doing some research on constitutional law and found that these people actually contribute quite a bit to society. The SCOTUS, House, and Senate, even the POTUS takes thier positions under advisement. I have attached some of thier papers.

You can bet I will be more attentive to what these guys have to say.

CATO is sort of Libertarian. They don't agree on a lot of neocon-type issues...ie, war and spreading democracy through the world. They're more into small budget, personal liberty, etc. It's not really a partisan organization though, because their agreements and disagreements transcend any party identity.

They write a ton of amicus briefs and generally contribute a lot to public policy. They have quite a bit of penetration into academia and are a huge anchor for preventing the encroachment of the nanny state. IMO CATO is a good influence generally...although I semi-disagree with them on some issues, it's not to a significant degree.

Glad you found CATO. When CATO writes on a subject, it's worth the time to read and look up references.
