The Democratic Party Has Turned Against Civilization

No matter who wins the election, what remains of American freedom will be in serious jeopardy. Nevertheless, on just about every issue, Biden and the Democrats are more anti-freedom than Trump and the Republicans.

The Merchant of Mars

The head of NASA convinces the President that space exploration should be done by private industry, and the United States government declares, “The first person to land on Mars, live there a year, and return alive owns the whole Red Planet.” Welcome to the greatest race in history.

Granny and the Anti-Capitalist Cliff

U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan, caricatured in political ads last year and again this month as pushing Granny off the cliff of Medicare, is now the running mate of the maker of RomneyCare, who is running against the maker of ObamaCare. With the consequent renewed debate over...

Socialism and the Meaning of Investment by Government

Government makes ‘investments’ in us that we can’t refuse. Many, including me, have identified the socialist premises in President Obama’s remarks on July 13 in Roanoke, VA. But are Obama’s actual policies as socialist as his socialist rhetoric? The answer is yes, but...

Osama Bin Laden is Dead, Yet America Is Still Losing the War

America is losing the war because we are still acting like police and social workers while our enemies are fighting a war, and because our political leaders still do not recognize the enemy: Islamists, especially Islamic governments.

Read Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand

I do not recommend the movie based—unfaithfully, in my judgment—on Atlas Shrugged (Rand 1957) that is opening this weekend. (See my analysis of one scene from the movie and novel.) Instead, I urge every thoughtful individual to read the novel, again and again, and to...

Fettered Markets

In his remarks on Wall Street Reform Thursday, April 22, 2010 at Cooper Union in New York City, President Obama said this: I’m going to quote: “Through the great banking houses of Manhattan last week ran wild-eyed alarm. Big bankers stared at one another...

BP Oil Spill: Private Property is the Solution

For this article, let me be brief about the following facts, which are oil and water under the bridge. BP’s off-shore oil leases, like all off-shore oil leases, are leases to use federal property. (Hat tip to this article in The Freeman.) The land and water are...

Obama at the London G20 Summit

  In his news conference following the London G20 Summit on April 2, Obama said this: In terms of local politics, look, I'm the President of the United States. I'm not the President of China, I'm not the President of Japan, I'm not the President of the other...

AIG is Left Holding the Government’s Bag

On March 16, Obama said this about AIG:  I do want to comment on the news about executive bonuses at AIG. ... This is a corporation that finds itself in financial distress due to recklessness and greed. Under these circumstances, it's hard to understand how derivative...

Bernard Madoff is Small Potatoes Compared to the Government

Bernard Madoff has confessed to a Ponzi scheme whereby he swindled investors of billions of dollars. "In court documents, prosecutors say Madoff reported he oversaw $64.8 billion." Multiply that staggering amount of money by 3,000, and you get roughly the amount of...

Obama’s “Logic” on the Mortgage Crisis

In his "Remarks by the President on the mortgage crisis" on February 18, Obama stated: Our housing crisis was born of eroding home values, but it was also an erosion of our common values, and in some case, common sense. It was brought about by big banks that traded in...
