Reining in the Regulators

Article 1 Section 1 of the United States Constitution reads, “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.” Legislative power, of course, is the authority to create the laws and rules which govern the nation. The Constitutional framers wisely restricted that authority to an elected legislature. Unfortunately today the majority of America’s rules are created not by Congress, but by unelected bureaucrats.

Liberty a Bright Idea

Ludwig von Mises once said, “Government is essentially the negation of liberty.”  A truer statement cannot be found especially in a time when the Government has dictated to us what light bulbs we can purchase.  Thankfully Rep.

Obama's Failed "Tax Hike on the Debt Hike" Gambit

It appears President Obama's strategy in the debt ceiling talks has been to do 4 things: Increase Uncle Sam's credit limit by enough to get past reelection. Pose as a fiscal centrist.  Neuter the GOP on taxes.  Thwart real entitlement reforms.  Until two days ago, his strategy was working.

Regulating California’s Auto Industry into the Electric Chair

Californians, especially Southern Californians, love their cars, from a big Jeep a la Katy Perry’s “California Gurls” to a slick Mercedes Benz. With such a large number of auto consumers, it seems safe to say that a Californian will know what sort and what priced car is best for him. Yet the California Air Resources Board is working on a new proposal to be unveiled this September that will exhort Californians to buy electric cars. A regulatory agency with unelected members is picking which products are winners and which are losers in the state’s legendary and diverse auto marketplace.

They Took Our Jobs!!!

“They took our jobs!!!”  This is the mantra that the creators of South Park have so endearingly given to middle class America.  However, despite their malicious intent, they may have stumbled across something.  Today, the Bureau of Labor Statistics released the new economic data for the month of June and the http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2011-07-08/u-s-payroll

Maryland on the Road to Serfdom?

I have lived in the state of Maryland my entire life. I was born and raised in the suburbs near Washington, D.C. and attended college in western Maryland. Now that I have recently received my college diploma, I plan on fleeing to the neighboring and lower-tax state of Virginia as soon as possible. There are plenty of great things about Maryland (see: world famous crabs and the beautiful mountains of western Maryland), but the high taxes are not one of them. It’s time for me to pack up and leave my spendthrift home state.

Another French Statist Named Head of the IMF

It’s former French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde first week as the Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF). She is replacing the former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn (DSK) who recently resigned after being arrested in New York City for an alleged rape. Shortly after DSK was formally indicted, the IMF began its month-long politicized selection process behind closed doors. In choosing Christine Lagarde to fill the vacant leadership spot, the IMF is merely replacing one French socialist with another.
