Socialism vs. Capitalism

February 15, 2016

There are three great lies circulating. They are: Capitalism is EVIL. Government owes you something. America is rich and always will be.

Forgetting National Security, Ignoring Truth

January 6, 2016

The 1992 presidential election turned on one key phrase: “It’s the economy, stupid.” The Cold War had been won. America was the sole superpower of the world. We had just won the Gulf War.
