Passing the torch on anti-trust law

BY C. Boyden Gray

Recently, the U.S. Court of Appeals ruled on Massachusetts vs. Microsoft — closing the last chapter in the antitrust battle running since 1998. In unanimously rejecting Massachusetts' call for tougher sanctions against the software giant, the appellate court essentially told Massachusetts to wake up and join the 21st century. Unfortunately, this is not the end of the story. While the U.S. courts may have put the issue to rest, the Europeans have recently taken up the torch, with the European Commission leveling charges against Microsoft that parallel the original case brought against the company in the United States. Rather than rehash the case, the Europeans should acknowledge the gains in consumer welfare competition has generated and reject new controls in the high-tech marketplace that could prove harmful to consumers.

Road Map to an Ownership Society

Sen. John Kerry has begun to elaborate on the economic agenda that he presented in just a few lines during his speech at the Democratic National Convention. However, he fails to realize that the burden of a tax increase on the "upper 2 percent" will fall disproportionately on the small businessmen and women who create more than two-thirds of all new jobs.

Time to take another look at home rule for New Hampshire

BY Editorial

Judging by current events taking place in Seabrook and Dover, it appears it is once again time for New Hampshire legislators and voters to consider an amendment to the state constitution establishing home rule. Home rule means New Hampshire’s cities and towns could assume all functions not previously allocated to the state. Currently, local voters only have authority granted them by the Legislature.

Terry Smith: Better communication, better government

BY Martin Burkey

Terry Smith's grandparents were rebellious Republicans when he was growing up in staunchly Democratic Pulaski County, Ky., he recalls. As a naval aviator, he was used to pushing the edge, piloting electronic signal intelligence missions off the North Vietnam coast after the truce in 1973. Smith has been pushing ever since as archconservative activist, frequent candidate and local cable talk show host. He's making his second run at becoming mayor of Decatur.

Bedford councilor pushing for voting districts

BY SCOTT DOLAN

BEDFORD — Town Councilor David Danielson expects he will lose his seat in the next election if Bedford decides to elect five of its seven councilors by district rather than at large, but he told a breakfast crowd yesterday he supports the change anyway. Danielson was one of two scheduled guest speakers at a breakfast put on by the Bedford chapter of Citizens for a Sound Economy (B-CSE) at the old town hall.

Kerry is Slow to Learn Lessons Taught by Europe

As this year’s election rolls ever closer Democratic Presidential nominee John Kerry has established a platform on major issues. The implications of his stance on economic questions are daunting at best. Mr. Kerry has proposed raising the minimum wage and increasing publicly funded health care. He refuses to recognize the problem of unfunded liabilities in our Social Security system and promises to repeal Bush’s tax cuts. Yet just as Kerry is promoting policies that expand the government’s reach and control of the economy, European nations are desperately searching for ways to revive their failing welfare states. The current European quagmire should provide an important cautionary tale for proponents of big government.
