End the Fed instead of just firing the chairman

For more than six months President Trump has been very critical of Federal Reserve Chairman Powell.   A rapidly sinking stock marked caused, in part, by eight interest rate increases since the president took office, is at the root of the conflict.  President Trump has reportedly expressed a desire to fire the chairman.  Abolishing the entire … Continue reading End the Fed instead of just firing the chairman

Wouldn’t it be best if the migrants fixed their own countries rather than flee?

Why did 147 million individuals  express a desire to immigrate to the United States?  The vast majority wishes to flee to here because they are living in countries with not enough individual freedom, not enough economic opportunity, or have oppressive governments.  What is the root cause behind the recent string of migrant caravans leaving Central … Continue reading Wouldn’t it be best if the migrants fixed their own countries rather than flee?

The perpetually offended have inherited the earth

The most powerful people in the United States are those that declare themselves to be offended; if they are of the liberal political persuasion, that is.  In most cases, they will be granted immediate attention by the liberal media, and whatever offends them will be immediately banned.  This is the end result of over two … Continue reading The perpetually offended have inherited the earth

Government Bureaucracy turned a small town road into a nightmare.

There is very little that government bureaucracy does not turn into a nightmare.  A two mile stretch of road in a small Massachusetts town is a perfect example of this fundamental principle.  Twice in the recent past, a squabble between highway departments at two levels caused this stretch of road to be closed for hours, … Continue reading Government Bureaucracy turned a small town road into a nightmare.

The Progressive Reality Distortion Toolkit

It has been apparent to me for some time that progressives, along with the rest of the political left, have a view of United State that is drastically different from the true nature of this most remarkable nation.  This distorted view of America took form in Colleges and Universities back in the 1960s, and has … Continue reading The Progressive Reality Distortion Toolkit

Thomas Jefferson – Racist villain or abolitionist hero?

No founding father was more instrumental in establishing the United States as a nation grounded in individual freedom, natural law, Republican form of government, and a constitutionally limited federal government than Thomas Jefferson.  No founding father has been more unfairly maligned by academia and modern historians than Thomas Jefferson.  Some readers, those of a more … Continue reading Thomas Jefferson – Racist villain or abolitionist hero?

Collectivism nearly doomed the Pilgrims

Several important facts about the early years of the Pilgrims, after they landed in Plymouth, are omitted from the current telling of their history.  Few know today that the Pilgrims experimented with the kind of communal living that was advocated by Plato.  This collectivist experiment nearly doomed the colony, contributing greatly to much suffering in … Continue reading Collectivism nearly doomed the Pilgrims

Why do Conservatives and Libertarians squabble so much?

During the past two weeks I saw two Conservative friends post rather derogatory items about Libertarians on Facebook, and Libertarians do the same about Conservatives.  That is just a small sampling of what I‘ve seen since I’ve been on social media.  At times it appears there is an all out war between the two sides … Continue reading Why do Conservatives and Libertarians squabble so much?

Democrats retaking the House would be a Pyrrhic Victory

This article is most likely hypothetical because it appears that the Republican Party’s chances of maintaining control of the House of Representatives have increased since the Justice Kavanaugh debacle, and the Senate was never really in play.  I could be mistaken because most of the polls are unreliable and the media coverage is deeply biased. … Continue reading Democrats retaking the House would be a Pyrrhic Victory

Movie Review – Darkest Hour

I consider Gary Oldman to be one of the finest character actors.  Because of that I was looking forward to watching his portrayal of Winston Churchill, a role in which earned Oldman an Oscar.  I am aware of Hollywood’s far left bias and well earned reputation for completely disregarding actual history when making a movie … Continue reading Movie Review – Darkest Hour

Five Keys to Ensure GOP Victory in the Midterms

With the midterms just under three weeks away, I’m cautiously optimistic the Republican Party will maintain a very narrow majority in both the House and Senate.  I wish I could be more confident in my prediction, and in the GOP’s performance in this most crucial midterm election.  I would be more confident if the Republicans … Continue reading Five Keys to Ensure GOP Victory in the Midterms

If We Still Followed the Constitution Few Would Care Who is on the Supreme Court

Based on the mass protests, the despicable conduct during the confirmation hearings, and the shameful smear campaign waged against Judge Kavanaugh, it is safe to say progressives are outraged that President Trump has so far placed two Justices on the Supreme Court.  The framers of the Constitution and those who ratified it would be completely … Continue reading If We Still Followed the Constitution Few Would Care Who is on the Supreme Court

Blame Saul Alinsky For Our Current Political Circus

I don’t believe there is a more apt label for our current political climate than calling it a circus.  There is no better example of this circus than the entire confirmation process for Judge Kavanaugh.  This circus began with the protests that erupted even before President Trump announced the name of his nominee, continued with … Continue reading Blame Saul Alinsky For Our Current Political Circus

And the Award for the Most Libertarian Fiction Author Goes to…

After very much deliberation I could not decide between the two that stand out the most in my mind so it is a tie.  The first is a veritable heavyweight based on name recognition and percentage of those on the political right that have read at least one of her books.  The other is much … Continue reading And the Award for the Most Libertarian Fiction Author Goes to…
