Is America Seeking the Economic High Ground from the Moral Low Ground?

It is here I am forced to say that if we leave Roe v. Wade in place along with the marriage busting and perverted ruling of Obergefell, the best efforts of our new president will not succeed. Our economy and our morality are, and have always been, inextricably linked. This is something you can most assuredly take to the bank.

Death to NAFTA & Building the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ

This election revealed that one of the issues that American’s care deeply about is jobs. In the past two decades we have seen a dramatic and devastating change in the job out look for most citizens. Twenty days from now will be the twenty-third anniversary of the implementation the North American Free Trade Agreement ( NAFTA). The history of this agreement is grim. Public Citizen has published a report that details the wreckage of just the first twenty years of NAFTA.

Useful Idiots and the Theater of the Absurd

Useful Idiots and the Theater of the Absurd

Recently I had the opportunity to spend some time with a person who would easily qualify as one of Lenin’s useful idiots. Here is a man who grabbed the brass ring. Not by government intervention. Not by being one of the bigtime crony capitalists who rig the system that chooses winners and losers. No, he had achieved success and fortune through his own ingenuity and hard work.

Obama Boom Builds Obamatowns 

According to the megaphones of the Progressive-controlled media, the Obama economy is booming.  For the investor class, it has been a rising tide that lifts all yachts or as it is expressed in Bloomberg, “When President Barack Obama was elected in November 2008, the U.S. economy was shrinking at a rate unmatched since World War II. In the seven years between then and his final State of the Union address Tuesday night, global investors have enjoyed stellar results from the rapidly expanding Obama economy.”

It’s the Congress, Stupid!

I’ll admit that I’ve done my share of Obama-bashing.The fact is, however, that he couldn’t have done nearly as much damage to the U.S. economy, military and social fabric without the meek acquiescence of the Congress.

Hillary, There are No Jobs for the Dead

Hillary, There are No Jobs for the Dead

Are there really “moral responsibilities” to be regarded in an election? In fact, there are and one of the most rudimentary of them all is the need to elect people who are basically honest. Hillary Clinton’s dishonesty in the handling of her emails and her role in the lies fostered immediately following the slaughter of Ambassador Chris Stevens in Benghazi. These should be clues enough for the nation to doubt Clinton, but the real clincher about Hillary’s dishonesty requires only an ordinary calculator and not inside information from the State Department.

Free Trade Must be Enforceable

If we want to have free trade, let’s have it — with enforceable agreements. By ignoring trade barriers like currency manipulation, the WTO and IMF are pushing the world further away from the goal of free trade and justifying actions by individual nations to protect domestic producers, which becomes the most likely outcome. Escalation seems inevitable. In the end, everyone will lose.

America Needs More Entrepreneurs, Not More Bureaucrats

The business that ride-hailing firms like Uber, and its smaller rival Lyft, challenge is a highly regulated business — the taxi business — that is tightly controlled by the cities in which they operate. These are government-controlled monopolies designed to limit competition.
