In an earlier post on the debt ceiling, I asked if you could recall where you were when a “sentinel event” such as the bombing of Perl Harbor, assassination of JFK or the terrorist attacks of 9-11 occurred. These incidents had a profound effect on life in America, for both our national psyche and for each of us personally.
On August 2, 2011, without any significant cuts in the level of federal spending, the Senate voted by a wide margin in favor of a bill already passed by the…

"The largest single barrier to full employment of our manpower and resources, and to a higher rate of economic growth, is the unrealistically heavy drag of federal income taxes on private purchasing power, initiative and incentive." - President John F. Kennedy in a special message to Congress on tax reduction and reform Jan. 24, 1963
Even back in 1963, JFK knew how crippling income taxes are.

Looking ahead a little at the coming elections, we can easily see how important our choices are today and this month and moving forward to election day. Each decision must be weighed carefully and then acted upon with purpose and urgency.
Revolutions andviolent upheaval in the Mideast, riots and union protests in most of Europe and "flash mobs" that have been pilaging Great Britain, with some overflow here at home.

Gary Johnson was interviewed on POTUS Radio yesterday, when the host asked him about the Fairtax. He was asked what would happen when the price of an item went from $100 to $123 overnight from day before Fairtax to day of Fairtax. A couple of blunders that Johnson made were quite glaring, especially in light of what would be the next caller's objections to the Fairtax.
One, Johnson didn't correct the host's price increase. We must be honest in that the price in the host's…Continue

As our unemployment rate hangs above 9% nationwide the loud cry for more jobs becomes more and more urgent, even angry—and legitimately so.

The last few weeks have seen an unprecedented furor over fears that the United States would default on its obligations due to a failure to raise our $14.3 trillion limit. As inconceivably high as that number is, the United States government considers it necessary to spend even more.
And while both sides fight over who will give on this point or that, the simple fact is that, if Congress were to pass the FairTax, not only would the whole Washington circus be unnecessary, we’d end up…Continue
