My top five posts in 2012

What follows is a list of my top five posts from 2012, as measured by pageviews. Popular posts are not necessarily the best posts, but I think most of these are pretty good on the merits as well.

  1. The hidden gem in Romney’s disaster speech
  2. Piracy really costs the economy nothing
  3. The strange and scary candidacy of Ron Paul
  4. The three conservative philosophical frameworks rebutted
  5. Income taxes are voluntary

Honorable mention goes to There is no such thing as redistribution. It is the sixth most popular post for the year, but it only had 3 months to collect pageviews.
