A Malaysian Airlines jetliner carrying 295 people crashed along the Ukraine – Russia border, an area currently embroiled in violent conflict between Ukraine and Russian Separatists. It has now been reported by numerous sources that the jet was downed by a surface-to-air missile. As Fox News reports: The airline, which saw one of its fleet […]
In this video, Dr. Sowell dismantles the Minimum Wage law and tells it like it is: the Minimum Wage, while maybe well-intentioned by some, actually produces unemployment and harms people already living in poverty.
I frequently tout Thomas Sowell as one of the greatest wielders of rhetoric in our time, perhaps even the greatest of all. I’m glad he’s on our side, which is the side of Liberty and Freedom, instead of being on the side of Statism and Tyranny. When it comes to discussing politically incorrect topics, especially […]
Does Paris Hilton deserve her wealth? Does Justin Bieber deserve his wealth? Do lottery winners deserve their wealth? I recently had an interesting discussion with a person who charged that some extremely wealthy people, such as Paris Hilton or Kim Kardashian, do not “deserve” their wealth.

Close to a year ago now, I wrote an article about a lawsuit being filed against Obamacare. That lawsuit is close to ending. The judges are apparently close to making their decision.

Instead, they got dueling anti- and pro-immigration rallies Friday. The crowd of 200 outside […]
On the Wall Street Journal, we read: The European Central Bank has the option of engaging in large-scale asset purchases, known as quantitative easing, but such a policy is not needed at present after the bank unveiled extraordinary measures to fight too-low inflation last week, a top ECB official said Friday. “It’s in the toolbox.

Written and posted by Ron Paul at the Ron Paul Institute: This week Americans will enjoy Independence Day with family cookouts and fireworks. Flags will be displayed in abundance. Sadly, however, what should be a celebration of the courage of those who risked so much to oppose tyranny will instead be turned into a celebration […]
I recently posted an article on what I call out as the schizophrenia that lives in the mainstream conservative movement: the plea for a small government domestically, but thumping for a huge and monstrous government internationally. My case in point was the Iraq War, which is still widely beloved and vigorously defended by Bushian Neoconservatives […]
