I thought Peyton was going to succeed Lamar Alexander?
I would favor Congress setting up a secession protocol. The great divide today is heightened because of the sense that there is no choice except living under the rules of the other side. We need an escape hatch fair for all.
Certainly our leftist friends admire the restraint their ilk showed at the Barr hearing today?
I fear our leftist friends are setting themselves up for big disappointment again. Barr is as straight as Mueller, yet the fantasies persist.
No monopoly can exist longer than one generation without the careful care and feeding by the government. Only government has the power to compel, the power to steal, and the power to kill without penalty. We see one (or more) of those in every economic act by the government.
How’s that “Russian collusion” line working?
The sad fact of economics is that you can have a vibrant economy, or you can have an economy constrained by bureaucratic fiat. That is why socialism always fails. I would always prefer freedom.
The core intellectual deficiency of US democrats is their inability to distinguish socialism from “welfare state.” One is not sustainable, and the other is used to buy votes.
No, I mean countries where the government controls economic production. You are confusing socialism with “welfare state.” A free economy can tax individuals enough to support a welfare state; a socialist economy cannot, due to the bureaucratic interference with the means of production.
Respectfully think you do not know the difference between a high tax welfare state and “socialism.” Socialism is when the government controls production, as through regulation or direct ownership. Sweden was socialist through the 1980s, as was Britain during the 1970s. Both abandoned those failing systems and are now freer of economic regulations than the US. Agree that Sweden is a welfare state, but it is not socialist.
