Socialism — The Ultimate Parasite

Socialism is here — temporarily. It has pretty much taken over the developed western world. Europe has been suffering from its consequences at least since World War II.

Political [...]

Socialism Destroys Slowly

As this country slowly sinks into the abyss of Socialism, all types of changes are beginning to appear.

The Ugly Side of Socialism Is Here

There is a kerfuffle in France. Citizens are not behaving the way the political elite would like. They are reacting adversely to higher taxes. This response should not surprise. People react to pain and pleasure. They prefer more of the latter and less of the former. Lives are planned in this fashion. Perhaps this revelation surprises a ruling class that [...]

The Productive Vote Against Obama’s Economic Delusions

No matter what Washington believes is good for the country, if it is not perceived as such by its economic actors there will be no economic recovery. No amount of propaganda associated with “hope and change” can alter the first commandment of human behavior — people act in their own best interest. Government policies ignore this commandment, believing people can [...]

Socialism Must Be Violent

Quiet! This dirty little secret of socialism is not supposed to be exposed. If Socialism is so good, why does it have to be imposed on people and then backed up by force or the threat thereof?

Limited Government Works; Socialism Kills

Liberty Died on Friday

The liberties of our country, the freedoms of our civil Constitution are worth defending at all hazards; it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors. They purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood. It will bring a mark of [...]

California Imploding Just Like Greece

Lady Thatcher’s axiom regarding Socialism has come to California. They have “run out of other people’s money” at least in the sense that tax revenues are plunging. The table below shows the accounting results of a dying economy. Doug Ross reports: California and Greece have more than a few things in common, including the fact that their unofficial slogans are [...]

Socialism or Limited Government?

The clash of visions regarding the role of government has never been greater in US politics. President Obama and the Democrat Party want to move closer to the European Socialism model, if not even further to the left. The Republican Party, not wholly against this trend, seems directed toward the same destination, only with a later preferred time of arrival. [...]
