The Wall Street Journal editorial page expresses the views of the newspaper's editorial board. The editorial board "stands for free trade and sound money; against confiscatory taxation and the ukases of kings and other collectivists; and for individual autonomy against dictators, bullies and even the tempers of momentary majorities."
