Wind Energy: A Darker Shade of Green

A Darker Shade of Green Wind energy has become an environmentalist’s catchall. Americans have been led to believe that the big white wind turbines springing up all across the country are a sort of great white hope for the environment and energy security.

Obama: Cut the Social Security Tax in Half

Democracy and Power 103:  Government moneyIn general, the art of government consists in taking as much money as possible from one party of the citizens to give to the other. – Voltaire (1764) The money taxed and spent by the politicians comes from the labor and ingenuity of millions of working persons.  Politicians spend other peoples’ money.

Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?: Cronyism and Collusion in the Obama Administration

As commentators grapple with the rhetoric and content of the president’s big jobs speech, few will take notice of his invited guests. Chief among these attendees are GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt, and AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka. At first glance, Obama’s guest list seems conciliatory and inclusive; after all, both big business and big labor will be defining factors in a lasting economic recovery. Unfortunately, though, there is more than meets the eye. There is a history of ties, too close for comfort, between the leader of the free world and General Electric’s head.

Social Security is a Mandatory Ponzi Scheme

Rick Perry made headlines for calling Social Security a “Ponzi scheme” in last night’s presidential debate. Mitt Romney and statist media sources predictably attacked this position claiming that the insolvent program is A-Okay. To be fair, Rick Perry isn’t the only Republican candidate with the courage to speak truth to fiction about Social Security. Ron Paul has likely been calling the entitlement program a Ponzi scheme long before I was even born.

Regulation Nation: EPA's Crippling Command and Control

The United States economy is both stagnant in economic growth and mired in enormous debt and the outlook for recovery is dismal at best. Failed stimulus and government intervention have made matters worse, but bureaucrats in Washington march onwards with their plans to command and control the American economy. The EPA has a series of regulatory nightmares in the works for its vision of a green America and the demise of abundant and affordable fossil fuels.

Why We Can't Tax Ourselves Out of a Ditch

During the nasty back-and-forth in the debt ceiling debate, inflamed rhetoric dominated discourse, and left reasonable debate trailing in the dust. Any opposition to a multi-billion dollar tax increase is seen as the artifact of a radical faction of Congress.

Obama and “the art of politics is to inflame and direct desire”

Democracy and Power 105:  The Politician seeks power To some people, government appears as a vast reservoir of power which inspires them to dream of what use might be made of it. They have favorite projects of various dimensions which they sincerely believe are for the benefit of mankind. They are thus disposed to recognize government—an instrument of passion, the art of politics to inflame and direct desire.

Time To Crop Government Out of The Energy Sector

Whenever our bloated federal government comes up with a grand, new scheme, the law of “unintended consequences” strikes hard and fast. The energy policies of both Presidents Obama and Bush give a striking example of the harm that a well-meaning government can cause. At a time when gas prices are at their higher level yet, it makes sense that we should be looking to other forms of fuel to put into our cars and churn out of our factories. Thus, the two previous administrations, with the support of many politicians, have subsidized the conversion of crops into biofuels.
