A Historic Fiscal Solution, If We Overcome Convention Fears

If you haven’t noticed, the major problems at the federal level are bipartisan. The debt-ceiling charade, in particular, demonstrated that leaders of both major parties have no desire to balance their books. Sure, they’ll propose minor cuts to spending projections, but the status quo of deficits suits them just fine. The status quo does not, however, suit taxpayers, ... [click for more]

Pat Buchanan versus The Good War

Patrick J. Buchanan, in Churchill, Hitler, and the Unnecessary War (reviewed in Freedom Daily in three parts, beginning here), charges British statesmen with blundering into wars that resulted in the devastation of Europe and the fall of their empire. It is not surprising that this book has a caused a stir, for it draws into ... [click for more]

Social Security Is Not a Ponzi Scheme

It is good to see that the Republican presidential candidates are battling it out over the nature of the Social Security system. It is something that few politicians have been willing to talk about, lest they antagonize the largest class of voters in the country — senior citizens. At the Republican candidate debate at the Reagan Library in ... [click for more]

The Myth of Withdrawal from Afghanistan

Despite Barack Obama's trumpeted force draw-down in Afghanistan, by the end of next summer more than twice as many U.S. troops will be fighting in that country's civil war as there were when he became president in 2009.

Dying to Corrupt Afghanistan

American soldiers are dying so that Afghan politicians can continue looting U.S. tax dollars. Foreign aid has long been notorious for creating kleptocracies governments of thieves.

According to the American media and politicians commemorating the ten-year anniversary of 9/11, the attacks at the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were a diabolical surprise attack perpetrated by Islamist terrorists against a peaceful and unsuspecting country. While many of the victims of those attacks were no doubt peaceful and unsuspecting, the same cannot be said of the ... [click for more]

After Ten Years of the War on Terror, Its Time to Scrap the Authorization for Use of Military Force

Many Americans probably think that the “War on Terror” began on September 11, 2001, when the terrible terrorist attacks took place, whose tenth anniversary has recently been marked. However, the “War on Terror” actually began on September 14, 2001, when Congress passed the Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF), which authorized the president “to use all necessary and ...

Rube Goldberg Economics

“Since ‘economic growth’ is today’s great problem, and our present Administration is promising to ‘stimulate’ it — to achieve general prosperity by ever wider government controls, while spending an unproduced wealth ...” Any contemporary libertarian or Austrian-school economist could have written those words.
