The Greatest Nation on Earth
Is it Canada or Australia?
How did it happen? Under President Obama, America is following the European socialist model of big government, big spending, big entitlements, big taxes, free health care and billions wasted chasing a mirage called “green energy.” The result is massive debt, insolvency and bankruptcy. We are a nation in decline, much like the old Soviet Union before its collapse. Mr. Obama has taken an America that used to be the pride of the world and turned it into a creaking, 100-year-old building that must be evacuated before someone gets hurt. Meanwhile Canada, our neighbor up north, and Australia, on the opposite side of the world, which we’ve treated as our weak, goofy cousins, have followed the American model of capitalism, free markets and fiscal conservatism. The results are worth noting. Canada and Australia are booming. America is in free fall. [more...]
Obamacare Built on Legal "House of Cards"
After three days of intense oral arguments from Solicitor General Donald Vermilli, and the attorneys for the 26 states who sued the government, I learned something I didn’t know before: the argument for Obamacare’s individual mandate is built on a “house of cards” that started in the 1930s. Back then, FDR had proposed and passed the most ambitious legislation in the history of the country under the New Deal. He developed new powers for the government and expanded its reach, particularly in commerce. At that time, the Supreme Court was leary about the expanding role of government as part of FDR’s New Deal. Up until 1936, many decisions were (5-4) in the Supreme Court in favor of invalidating many of FDR’s signature programs. Then in 1936, FDR had a plan to increase the size of the Supreme Court from nine to fifteen. [more...]
Romney’s Environmental Positions Shaped by Obama Czar
By Doug Johnson
As governor, Romney hired an advisor with some of the most radical views and background ever seen in American politics on either side of the aisle. I believe that supporting Romney over Obama is the better choice between the two; but the more I look, the more I find that Romney and Obama are similar in so many ways that it will make Romney much easier for Obama to beat than any of the other GOP candidates. What’s the latest similarity? One of Obama’s czars was an adviser on environmental policy to Romney when he was governor of Massachusetts. [more...]
Wasting Away Again in Obamaville
According to the Department of Labor statistics, 88 million Americans are now "Not in Labor Force." This administration is claiming smaller unemployment figures, when leaving the LABOR FORCE is becoming a trend! Mr. President, show us the true numbers, if you dare! I will discuss the effects of Obama’s economic policies on job creation, why there are no more excuses for this administration, and explain why the free market always brings jobs and prosperity.
The Real Reasons behind Skyrocketing Gasoline Costs
If you turn on your TV between now and November, at some point you will hit on a political ad about the price of gasoline. The Democrats want you to think that Mitt Romney is raising the price. The Republicans want you to believe that Obama is raising the price. The truth is that the price of gasoline is a major problem. Nobody, not even big oil companies, wants to see a skyrocketing price of gasoline. As energy prices go higher, it makes running a business more expensive. This has the unintended consequence of slowing down economic growth (e.g. putting people out of business) and subsequently lowering the price of oil (see oil’s drop to $30 a barrel during the 2008 recession). But why is gasoline going up? And why does it go up every spring/summer? [Find out here...]
Obama Welcomes Brotherhood Run for Egyptian Presidency
By Ryan Mauro
The Muslim Brotherhood swore up and down that it wouldn’t seek the Egyptian presidency as proof of its desire for a pluralistic society. At the last minute, the Brotherhood nominated Khairat el-Shater. According to the New York Times, State Department officials actually look at this as a good thing that could stop the more puritanical Salafists from winning. [more...]
