Gas Prices and Economic Principle

The left has shamelessly taken creedit for American Oil and Gas exploration and production reaching historic heights - yet, American Oil has boomed only in spite of the best efforts democrats have made to hinder its growth.

The Dangers of International Free Trade Agreements

U.S. non-financialaAssets per the IRS (Reuters)

Conservatives and libertarians are renowned for desiring the greatest possible autonomy with respect to the free market. This phenomena, in fact, aided in igniting “the shot heard ‘round the world” April 19, 1775 at Lexington and Concord. History teaches high school students the economic principle behind the French term laissez-faire, or “to […]

The 'Arab Spring' Farce

Brave, beleaguered Egyptian protesters post-Morsi. Benefitiaries of $1billion in US aide granted by the Obama Admin - flying an Al Qaeda flag atop our United States Embasy. How Islamists express gratitude. How rational Americans define foreign policy failure.

The Amtrak Crash: When Government is Ideological Instead of Lawful and Logical

Last week’s deadly Amtrak crash was absolutely horrendous.

For Democrats and their fellow Big Government advocates – it was a serious crisis they are trying desperately to not let go to waste.

They first tried to say the cause of the crash was a lack of government […]

Will Congress Finally Defend Its Constitutional Turf – to Stop the EPA¹s Assault on Water?

wtrepaIt is an empirical fact – a metaphysical certitude. Government overreaches.

And the Barack Obama Administration has the longest, most overactive arms ever. With many, many, MANY power-grabbing hands.

Yet Again, Government Screws Up – And Tries to Blame the Private Sector

cover oregonGovernment is terrible at…well, pretty much everything. The examples are legion – and myriad.

In large part because government doing anything violates the Wallet Rule.

You go out on a Friday night with your wallet. You then go out the following Friday night with my wallet. […]

Why Congress is Dysfunctional

dnthngcngrsWe have all heard complaints about the “do nothing congress” for the past several presidential administrations. Indeed, we frequently see that congressional approval numbers flirt with historically low positive rates. This has occurred whether the majority of congress has belonged to democrats or republicans.

The American […]

Net Neutrality Is Just As Stupid Internationally As It Is Here

ntntrltyNet Neutralityremains an omni-directional terrible idea.

Here in the United States, Net Neutrality exponentially increases the government’s ability to tax the Internet. Starting with the 17.4% Universal Service Fund (USF) tax. Which goes up automatically every calendar quarter. And goes up each and every time three unelected Federal […]

Higher Costs, New Taxes – The Perpetual Lie: More Government = Less Expensive

bltdgvt3We’ve heard it for generations. Let government get more involved – and private sector prices will fall. We’ve heard it in defense of new programs – and (ever) more regulations.

We have centuries of evidence to the contrary.

Government promises already made are unfathomably short […]

#RFRA – Big Government Means Big Losses of Freedom and Choices and Big Cronyism

bggvt2The solution to many, MANY public policy problems is – less government.

Governments’ regulatory hammers and checkbooks are simply gi-normous. The federal government alone spent last year nearly $4 trillion – and its regulations cost the economy more than $2 trillion more.

That’s $6 trillion a […]

Yet Another Area of Unjustified Government Takeover

ntntrlty3An article I wrote twenty years ago described the Internet as America’s next frontier. And for the past twenty years, it has been a wide-open, innovative, constantly changing — and yes, somewhat unruly – frontier. But all that may have changed with the Federal Communication Commission’s recent announcement […]

Enough is Enough, Its Time to Downsize the Federal Government

bltdgvt4The size of the federal government has exploded over the last century. The legislative and judicial branches of government have grown to serve the increased number of states and their growing populations. The size and scope of the executive branch has grown to reflect an expanded role […]

Aren’t We All Looking Forward to ‘Internet at the Speed of Government?’

intrntslwWe were on February 26 subjected to the hugest of Barack Obama Administration Internet power grabs. Where the Administration unilaterally decided to start applying 1934 landline telephone law to the 21st-Century-Web.

This government grab was made under the guise of Network Neutrality – but this flashback-to-New-Deal phone […]

A New Approach – To Finally End an Old Farm Bill Problem

frmbl2The Farm Bill is a bane of we Conservatives’ existence – and Reality-based policymaking. It is a relic of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR)’s horrendously failed New Deal – a top-down, central-planning nightmare mess.

And over the last eighty-plus years, FDR’s heinous domestic policy has gone global. […]

Speaker Boehner: Democrat Dissenter

In ratifying law-breaking by both President Obama and millions of aliens, Boehner removed any lingering doubt that he is the Democrat-preferred Obama-Pelosi House Speaker. After the amnesty debacle, there can be no doubt that he is not even a RINO; he is the next-best-to-Pelosi front-man for the far left Democrats.

[…]

The Faithless Elected: Boehner and the House Dons

“I won,” declared Barack Obama, adding what is now a cliché: “Elections have consequences.” But, due to endless RINO lying to voters, Boehner and his henchmen have proven that is only partly true. Lying has been central to this country’s decay. First and foremost, campaign lying and liars must be stopped. This is an absolute […]

Speaker Boehner and Frustrated Conservatives

Reactions to John Boehner’s re-election as Speaker included scant attention to its implications for representative democracy. There is now no way for a majority of voters to obtain representatives who will represent them; and no way to compel a purportedly representative government to comply with their clear wishes on matters they consider most crucial.

Forward to the Past

Obama’s Plan: Repeal the Private Sector – Replace with Government

bltdgvt2We less government types believe in the Yellow Pages Rule: If you can find it in the Yellow Pages, the government shouldn’t be doing it.

The Obamacare antidote: Your Personal Affordable Care Act by Vik Khanna; Book excerpt 1

The Affordable Care Act is a lie. Author’s Note:

I am deeply grateful to Rachel Alexander and Steve Laib of The Intellectual Conservative for their willingness to carry this series of excerpts from my new e-book, Your Personal Affordable Care Act: How To Avoid Obamacare. As conservatives, we need to speak bluntly about the fact […]

The Last Resort to Replace John Boehner: Call the RINO Establishment's Bluff

It would be best if Speaker Boehner were replaced by Louie Gohmert. Failing that, true conservatives should give RINOs a taste of their own medicine. If there are not enough votes for Gohmert, here is a practical method for ousting the RINO Speaker by maximizing the leverage of a relatively few genuine conservatives.

Gollum - go away
