"Animal Rights" activists out of control

I realize that some of you might ask "Why is this article relevant to FreedomWorks?" My response: Your freedom is under attack from every direction, not just from Congress or your governor or your city council.  It's also under attack from a pervasive Nanny State mentality and the tendency of the media and the citizenry in general to give a free pass to unacceptable behavior and intrusiveness by activists for various causes/cults almost any time those activists claim to be acting with good intentions. It's time for the nation to get some backbone and tell liberals that actions will not be judged primarily by their intent but rather by their effect, and that our default position is freedom.

International Currency and the Power to Inflate

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) holds an imaginary currency called Special Drawing Rights (SDR) that acts as a currency reserve for other countries.  A reserve currency is held by foreign countries to purchase or sell their national currency in order to manipulate its value.  Recently, the dollar and Euro fill the role of reserve currency for 90 percent of global reserves.  The SDRs currently represent the value of the Euro, pound, dollar, and yen.  The basket of currencies is intended, in the rhetoric anyway, to stabilize the value of the reserve currency rather than putting control in the hands of a single government or central bank.  Russia and China are now pursuing the expansion of the program to include their currency and to increase the amount of SDRs available.

Companies Sign Letter Against Higher Taxes in Budget

On March 24, 200 American companies sent a letter to Congressional leadership about the proposal in the Obama-Reid-Pelosi budget to repeal tax "deferral".  Deferral allows companies to defer income into the future to avoid high marginal tax rates on income.  The letter claims that the repeal would unilaterally increase taxes on large American companies that deal internationally.

Keynesian Bubble Reinflation

Mario Rizzo at NYU has a great article has a great article in this issue of the Freeman explaining how Keynesian stimulus packages can't restore confidence to an economy.  He argues that in order to restore confidence in the market, which Secretary Geithner has claimed is the goal, we have to fix the causes of the problem rather than the symptoms.  A stimulus package does not correct, even in Keynesian terms, the "collective irrationality" that lead to a housing bubble in the first place.

FreedomWorks Supports Bill to Reform Florida’s Insurance Market

Florida’s government run Citizens Property Insurance Corporation is putting the state at risk of bankruptcy in the even of a catastrophic hurricane.  Citizens has become the largest insurer in the state by under-pricing the risks of a major catastrophe, even though the possibility of a significant hurricane is always looming.  The nation’s major insurers have pulled out of the state—Allstate, Nationwide, Prudential, USAA, and most recently State Farm, which had previously insured more than a million homeowners across the Florida.
