Here is the difference between President Obama and his predecessor George W. Bush: President Obama does not just do bad things, he does bad things badly.
It’s not just that starting up our third undeclared war of regime change in the Muslim world is foolish; it is the way the President did it that disturbs. In the second half of his term, it is not unreasonable to expect our President to have a clue.
First of all, we should never send our troops to battle because the…

The left continues to prattle on and on about the "war on the middle class", which is the label they attach nowadays to any serious discussion of government spending.
For the moment, let’s put aside the rather obvious point that the middle class will be the first to be wiped out if the grown-ups don’t avert the debt-induced economic collapse and currency debasement that looms. Instead, let’s visit a country where the pro-labor policies our American unionists demand have already…

Here’s how you make a libertarian: take a Republican, and cut off the war, drug prison, and churchy parts; then you take a Democrat, and cut off the parts that take all of your money and tell you what to do.
Put what’s left into a blender while stirring in the Constitution and Austrian School economic theory. Oh, yeah, and guns – don’t forget the guns…we really like guns. And gold…if you can’t break a tooth on it, it isn’t real money.
Anyway, bring the mixture to a boil –…

If nothing else, this past month of angry protests have reminded us that "the state" is not an inanimate object or legal abstraction; rather it is the people who write its laws, carry them out, and rule on disputes arising from their implementation.
The farther removed the unit of government, the more distant and impersonal it seems to us. While the states are waging heated personal and partisan budget battles, the Democrats and Republicans in the U.S. Congress agree on 99.4% of…

As our nation roars ahead like an out-of-control freight train the rift between the government and the people of the United States is wider than at any time in history. The high crimes and misdemeanors committed by our criminal government beggar the mind to comprehend them by number or severity. Polls show that the people oppose government policy on both the forgeign and domestic fronts: the rich get richer, the poor, poorer; the taxpayers have been footing the bill for the endless wars in…Continue

Of all of the myths that persist about wealth and work, perhaps the most stubborn is the myth of the working man; that stoic character who toils harder, grinds longer, contributes more, and is paid less than his presumptively non-working overlords.
Socialists, liberals, and Democrats claim to be "for" the working man – as long as it’s the union-represented working man. Capitalists, conservatives, and Republicans also claim to be "for" the working man, too – mostly they mean the…

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker is wrong. There, now all you statists can quit calling me a Republican scab. I don’t mind the scab part, but I’m not a Republican, even though I could sell a lot more books that way.
A friend of a friend commented on one of my recent posts, challenging the Governor’s claim that the Budget Repair Bill (BRB) would create 250,000 jobs. I read the bill from start to finish and there is no provision that would create any government jobs, so that much is…

While the Wisconsin media continues to obsess over the partisan standoff between Republicans and Democrats in Madison, the many other fronts in the war between the taxpayers and the taxeaters has received only glancing coverage.
Idaho, Utah, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and Vermont (yes, that Vermont) have all taken measures to shrink the size of their public sector unions or to restrict collective bargaining privileges. Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) has…

The revolution is well under way but so far it hasn't gained very much traction in its objectives; less government, sound money, and personal liberty. That is because the popular uprising is largely rhetorical and lacks a cogent plan to go forward. Protests are not working. Oh yes, people get out and demonstrate but the criminal government continues on its ruinous course, being controlled by Israel, Wall Street, and the Pentagon. The latest abomination is the rise in oil prices which are…Continue

A popular book on Transactional Analysis entitled, "I'm Ok, You're Ok" sold millions of copies when it came out in 1969. A lot of us baby boomers just read the title; we took it as a permission slip to do whatever we wanted. That’s pretty much our signature move.
We created our own delusional definition of liberty – freedom from consequence – and built an entire ideological framework to support it. It was a shaky lattice constructed of moral relativism, cultural diversity, notional…

The libertarian argument for radically limited government has never been more eloquently made than by the nationwide protests over public unions and collective bargaining.
Not that the protestors are on our side; anything with "compulsory" or "collective" is presumptively anti-libertarian, and compulsory collective bargaining is near the top of our list of dangerous substances.
Rather, they have illustrated, with great clarity, the fundamental incompatibility between…

In a response to my piece entitled, "Taxeaters", a reader who favored progressive income taxation posed this question back to me: why shouldn’t the top 50% of income earners pay 96% of the taxes?
My answer: for the same reason that they shouldn’t have to pick up 96% of the state’s collective bar tab. All knowledge builds upon what you know.
That evening, I pondered his question some more and was inspired while enjoying a pub meal that Michelle Obama would ban if…

I recently watched the video "Money, Banking, and the Federal Reserve" on YouTube. I'd watched it about a year before but this time I saw it in a very different light. It was a trip down the Rabbit Hole and I couldn't help laughing at the absurdity of the whole narrative. This video is a propaganda vehicle for the nut jobs that keep bleating about a "sound dollar" backed by gold. Here is the video itself;
