Why is the Middle Class Evaporating?

If you listen to leftists and big-government stooges, the middle class is evaporating because of low minimum wage, greedy corporations, and tax-breaks for the rich. Which would indicate that, in order to grow the middle class, the civil government needs to get more involved. No one argues with the fact that the middle class drives economic growth, and is therefore a crucial component of economic recovery, but what is the real problem here? I think it can be boiled down to a few things: Crony Read more […]

Fiat CEO: “Don’t Buy Our Electric Cars”

As much as I don’t like admitting that Obama was right about something, perhaps he did choose the right man to head up Chrysler. (But don’t worry; all the other problems with that merger still ensure that Obama comes out in the red on it overall … and hey, even a blind squirrel finds a nut in a broken clock occasionally and all that.) But I kind of like the CEO of Fiat, Sergio Marchionne. At least the man has a little spark and honesty. Recently, Marchionne angered pretty much everyone Read more […]

What They Call Capitalism Isn’t Capitalism At All

When most leftists and liberals decry the current American system, they talk about income inequality, corporate welfare, big business lobbying, and the like. They tend to call these things “the evils of capitalism” or something similar. Well, I have good news and bad news. The good news is that leftists and liberals are wrong to call these things capitalism. The bad news is that leftists and liberals are right to call these things wrong. America has become corporatist rather than capitalist. Read more […]

Dear Government: A Democrat’s Letter To His Beloved

Dear Government, Or do You prefer State? What about System? Perhaps The Man? Whichever address You prefer, please, fill it in place of my references to You as Government. You are supreme, and I want to please You. I write You today to tell You, as I’m sure You’re already aware, that life is hard. I’ve lived in America, Your slave, since birth (25 years now), and the hardships we Americans face everyday has turned us into a mockery in the eyes of the rest of the world. (I use the term “American” Read more […]

Attacking The Tea Party: The False Choice Between Big Government And Big Business

As I have pointed out, the Tea Party is outside the control of Big Business. When it was popular to berate the Tea Party for its opposition to Big Government, liberals claimed they were simply puppets of Big Business. Now that Big Business and Big Government openly work together to smear the Republicans for not raising the debt ceiling, the media admits the truth. Big Business and Big Government are working together and the Tea Party is their enemy As soon as the crisis is over, the media will Read more […]

ABC Analysis: Poor Big Government Is Not Trusted By Voters

If you think Obama is humbled by the public exposure of a few of his many sins, think again: “‘I genuinely believe that there are actually Republicans out there who would like to work with us but they’re fearful of their base and they’re concerned about what Rush Limbaugh might say about them,’ Obama said. ‘And as a consequence, we get the kind of gridlock that makes people cynical about government and inhibits our progress.’” Wow. Is that what is making people cynical about government?—Their Read more […]

Obama Says We Don’t Need Bigger Government—We’ve Been Punk’d

Paul Samuelson said: “Politicians like to tell people what they want to hear – and what they want to hear is what won’t happen.” In other words, politicians lie, because they know that people will believe them. Unfortunately, even after thousands of years of politicians telling people what they want to hear; the people still beg to be told the same old lies. We don’t learn. In prime political fashion, Barack Obama–in his State of The Union–told the American people what they wanted to hear. “It’s Read more […]
