What nation serves as the most powerful example of how statism can wreck an economy and impoverish people? The Soviet Union Greece Cuba China Zimbabwe Venezuela Those are all good choices, but perhaps Argentina is the best example (or should we say worst example?). If you go back 100 years, Argentina was one of the […]

By Detective (Retired) Marty Swirko, Manchester NH Police Dept. We have two cats. My wife wants another one, but I am reluctant to add a third. It’s not that I don’t like cats. My wife was a cat lover from the time I met her, so that means I became a cat lover. Of sorts. […]

Not the Usual Unattended Death — All Routes Are Amber


For years, public finance experts have been warning about fiscally irresponsibility by state and local governments. Many of those governments have been spending too much money and making overly expensive promises to interest groups such as government employees. Combined with the fact that these jurisdictions are driving away taxpayers, this leaves them vulnerable to potential […]

State and Local Governments Should Not Get a Bailout – either from Congress or the Federal Reserve — International Liberty

I’ve written favorably about the pro-growth policies of low-tax states such as Texas, Florida, and Tennessee, while criticizing the anti-growth policies of high-tax states such as Illinois, California, and New York. Does that mean we should conclude that “red states” are better than “blue states”? In this video for Prager University, Steve Moore says the […]

The IMF Urges Nations to Adopt Greek-Style Fiscal Policy — International Liberty

You see Trump’s arrogance, I see Trump’s confidence. You see Trump’s nationalism, I see Trump’s patriotism. You hear Trump’s unsophisticated words, I hear Trump’s honesty. You see Trump’s racism, I see Trump’s words being misconstrued and twisted by the media daily to fit their narrative. You see Trump as a Republican, I see Trump as a Patriot. You see Trump as a dictator, I see Trump as a leader. You see Trump as an Authoritarian, I see Trump as the only one willing to fight for our freedoms. You see Trump as childish, I see Trump as a fighter, unwilling to cave into the lies. You see Trump as an unpolished politician, I see Trump as a breath of fresh air. You think Trump hates immigrants, I know Trump is married to an immigrant. You see Trump putting an end to immigration in America, I see Trump welcoming immigrants to America LEGALLY. You see Trump’s cages at the border, I see Obama’s cages at the border. You see Trump with a struggling economy, I see Trump with an amazing economy until the Democrats shut it down. You see the violence in the streets and call it “Trump’s America”, I see the violence in the streets of Democratic-run cities who are refusing Trump’s help and call it “Liberal America.” You want someone more Presidential, I’m happy we have someone who finally doesn’t just talk the talk but actually walks the walk.

You and I? We see things very differently.
