Dissent, Not Denial: Informed Opposition to the Science of Climate Change Is Growing

Beneath the surface of a Cap and Tax debate that has only just begun to rage in this country, a basic premise is largely being taken for granted. Prominent fixtures of the political class, from Al Gore to Newt Gingrich to John McCain, have accepted and declared as fact that the Earth is getting warmer, the icecaps are getting smaller, carbon is to blame, and only government can save the day.

A Widening Trade Deficit: Something to Worry About?

Last Wednesday, the Department of Commerce announced that the US trade deficit has grown for the second consecutive month. In April alone, the US imported $29.2 billion worth of goods and services more than it exported. When similar news came out in June of 2008, then-Senator Obama said the trade deficit was the result of “unprecedented fiscal irresponsibility.”

Key Vote YES on Free Trade with Peru

On behalf of our 850,000 FreedomWorks members and supporters nationwide, I write to urge you to support the free trade agreement with Peru. The agreement would reduce tariffs for 80% of United States consumer and industrial exports to Peru and would phase out the remaining tariffs in the next ten years.

Key Vote “NO” on Rep. Pelosi's Proposal to Remove TPA from Columbia Free Trade Agreement

On behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to VOTE “NO” on Rep. Nancy Pelosi's procedural vote to override Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) for the proposed Columbia Free Trade Agreement. If successful, she will circumvent the 90-day deadline Congress has to consider the agreement, effectively killing it.

Good Morning Vietnam, But Farewell to Free Trade?

Free trade, which drives economic growth and has been a bedrock American principle since the end of the Second World War, may be coming under attack in the next Congress.  The first sign of trouble came just one week after the most recent elections, when a lame-duck session of the House of Representatives temporarily blocked a measure that would have granted “permanent normal trade relations” to Vietnam in advance of President Bush’s recent trip to Hanoi.

Biggest Foreign Aid Recipient

This op-ed was originally published in The Washington Times on May 10, 2006. Which country receives the most in total foreign aid from all donors? The official numbers show Iraq at the top with $3 to $18 billion in aid (depending on how you define "aid") and all the other recipient nations of the world at less than $3 billion per year. However, if you look at which nation benefits most from foreign subsidies, the U.S. would come out on top by a very wide margin.

No more excuses for Mexico

This piece was originally published in the April 24, 2006 edition of the Washington Times. Why do Mexicans only have one-third the per capita income (on a purchasing power parity basis) of Canadians and only one-fourth that of Americans? The answer is that Mexicans are relatively poor because have been plagued by semidespotic regimes that have ignored the rule of law and often engaged in destructive economic policies.

Dumb and Dangerous

This article was originally published in The Washington Times on April 7, 2006. It is no secret that politicians frequently put all of us at risk because of their real or willful ignorance. Most wars are a result of political miscalculations, but so are many recessions, depressions and other economic calamities. What follows are three examples where the political class is putting us in danger because of economic ignorance or worse.
