Republic Rules - The U.S.A. is a great representative republic.

An ongoing discussion of how it works… and why it works.

Not Democrat, not Republican - Constitutional Conservative

Disaster-made Jobs

They say there’s at least a sliver of truth in every bit of comedy.

Can disasters “create” jobs? No, of course not. Disasters, by definition, cost. Little ones cost little, big ones cost big. Simple.
Given the nature of a hurricane, the damage done to a large geographic area, […]

Lots of Little Lessons Learned

We need to do MORE of this:

Not only is a valuable principle imparted, it is delivered quickly and in a fun manner. Here’s another example of a “little lesson”:

It seems that many people today, both young and old, have lost the ability to reason. Maybe it’s too much TV, smartphone, email/chat, IM’ing, texting, […]

Truth In Taxation

These days, you cannot pick up a product without being able to turn it around and learn how many calories it has, what daily percentage of all the vitamins and minerals in it, what the product is made of (including active and inactive ingredients), whether it meets various health, safety, and environmental standards, and so […]

Equality - Part 2

I’ve previously discussed how our country is actually based on the idea that, in the eyes of Gods, all of us are created equal and the political fact that this concept has been construed to mean we should enjoy things equally.
The utopian idea that everyone should have the same things sounds great… which makes it […]

The current government “leadership” has moved our country further away from its founding principles and seems intent on implementing programs that are even counter to human nature. All this done under the guise of helping the “little guy” or maintaining “equality” or implementing “social justice”… with little consideration of who actually gets to […]

Human Nature

I agree with many of the WISHES of liberals… there should be no poor people, everyone should have great health care, every individual deserves a job, all citizens should receive an education, and more. The world would be a wonderful place if all such things were possible… but they’re not. This is mostly […]

Our current financial crisis was a series of bad decisions stacked on top of each other, which multiplied the terrible, yet totally predictable, outcome:

Making home loans to borrowers who realistically could not afford to make the payments.
Allowing loans to have ridiculous attributes, such as no money down and no proof of income
Authorizing FNMA and FHLMC […]

Ask Yourself

Suppose a respected college business professor gave his MBA class an assignment:

Examine the nation’s health care system and prepare a detailed plan to correct the problems… enhance transportability so pre-existing conditions won’t be excluded, reduce costs, expand services for those least able to afford it, minimize the likelihood that an extreme medical situation would lead […]

Delusional Factions

Contrary to what the majority of our own citizens have been taught in our schools for the past 40 years or so, the United States IS the single best example of citizens enjoying the greatest degree of human equality in the HISTORY OF THE WORLD.
Yes, despite some admitted (and corrected) flaws and blemishes, the U.S.A. […]

Market Solutions vs. Government Solutions

Well, here we go again… down the all-too-predictable path of the government “solving” a problem with all its infinite wisdom. WHEN will we ever learn?
The younger generation has no historical context so they don’t really understand the situation… and they’re certainly not taught it in schools. Maybe they are just fools trusting what […]
