Sequestration is Still Not a Credible Danger

One would have hoped that after a couple of weeks the overblown brouhaha over the consequences of the sequestration cuts would have died down, but alas, there are those still insistent that the meager $85 billion in cuts will somehow result in a cataclysmic shock to the American economy.

It's Time For Government To Fold on Anti-Gambling Laws

Nevada State Senator Tick Segerblom has introduced a bill that would legalize betting on presidential elections, a practice that is currently outlawed nationwide, including in states that allow other types of gambling. Naturally, this can be expected to raise hackles and invite questions over propriety and the dignity of the office, but why?

Buy Me Some Peanuts and Crackerjacks… And a Stadium

Corporate handouts are easily seen when it comes to national politics and legislation with huge subsidies going to large corporations such as Solyndra, General Electric and General Motors.  In the case of General Motors the government actually nationalized it!   But the handouts are more difficult to see at the local level.

Life, Liberty and Unlimited Minutes

Last week during Congress’s “vote-a-rama” over amendments to the continuing budget resolution, the Senate voted, mostly along party lines, to reject an amendment that would eliminate a government subsidy to provide cell phone service to low income consumers.

Republicans Lead Civil Rights Charge with School Choice

Republicans are beginning to coalesce around School Choice with Senators Rand Paul and Lamar Alexander’s amendment.  Senator Ted Cruz of Texas began with a rallying cry in his key-note address at CPAC declaring “education is too important for it to be controlled by bureaucrats in Washington, taking choices away from parents and kids…We need to champion school choice – the civil rights issue of the next generation.”  Not only is Senator Ted Cruz correct about school choice being the civil rights issue of the next generation, but it is the civil rights issue of this generation.

The Unfair Effects of the Marketplace Fairness Act

On Friday, March 22, the United States Senate conducted a “vote-a-rama,” featuring an unlimited number of amendments to the federal budget being brought to the floor for a vote.

Overregulation Takes the “Fun” Out of “Funeral Home Management”

The passing of a loved one is an intensely difficult and emotional time for the family, and the last thing they want to think about is costly and complex arrangements for the burial. It is therefore somewhat dismaying to learn what kinds of pressure the operators of funeral homes are subject to under current industry regulations, many of which have the effect of increasing costs that are then passed on to consumers.

Senate Vote-a-Rama - See How Your Senators Voted on Key Amendments Here!

Last Friday, the Senate voted on dozens of amendments to their budget resolution before eventually (narrowly) passing the budget itself. This frenzy of amendments, known as a "vote-a-rama", gave many Senators a chance to force their colleagues onto the record on many key issues that have not come up for a vote in the Senate in years.Among the most important (and revealing) votes were on Medicare reform, internet sales taxes, ObamaCare repeal, carbon taxes, and Senator Rand Paul's budget plan.

Fallacy Friday: Debunking Arbitrary Increases in the Minimum Wage

Fallacy Friday: Raising the Minimum Wage In and of itself, the idea that raising the minimum wage somehow benefits the working class is a form of the classic broken window fallacy.

The Importance of Pop-Culture in the Fight for Liberty

There is a tremendous amount of money, time and effort spent on promoting political ideas through think tanks, political action committees, cable news stations and a myriad of other sources. Billions are spent on elections, and woe betide anyone unfortunate enough to live in a swing state, doomed to unrelenting robocalls and political advertisements for months on end.
