Freedom is the heart of America

The promise of free stuff may enliven young voters and make them turn out to vote for Bernie. Those that actually do vote, instead of getting distracted and forgetting about it. Very distractable, the young. Like the old, oddly enough.

But, as The Washington Examiner‘s Hugo Gurdon writes, Trump really wants Bernie as an opponent. He wants to slay the socialist dragon once and for all, which he will because “Socialism is antithetical to freedom and freedom is the heart of America.”

Economist Thomas Sowell on Twitter: “Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”

Best part of Trump speech

“For too long, a small group in our nation’s capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth,” he declared. “Politicians prospered but the jobs left and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.”

To paraphrase President Lincoln: “I like this man. He fights.”

UPDATE:  And another former president, Jefferson: “I hold that a little rebellion now and then is a good thing, and as necessary in the political world as storms in the physical world.” Just so.

Why the Obama Economy Sucks

It’s not just the taxes that could have been lowered to give the poor economy a boost. It’s the constant pressure on business to spend its money elsewhere than on employment.

“In sum, consider President Obama‘s overall regulatory record: 624 major rules (as of this writing) and on track to approach 650 major regulations, 31 percent more than his predecessor. Regulators have added more than $760 billion in net costs since 2010, with 485 million in net paperwork burden hours….”

Democrat economy still tanking

“Now, signs point to a risk of commerce slowing and growth stagnating throughout the year, a year that President Obama and others hoped would be the long-awaited breakout for the still-damaged U.S. economy.”

Still over-regulated and over-taxed, would be more like it. New business creation has been negative since 2009 when our Barry Hussein was sworn in.

It’s been half a century since a Democrat president believed in tax cuts and he (JFK) was murdered.

Something else the Democrat news won’t cover

“These documents are a bombshell and show how the Clintons turned the State Department into a racket to line their own pockets,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. Judicial Watch and the Washington Examiner teamed to seek and publish those documents today (July 30, 2014)….

“Mr. Clinton’s office proposed 215 speeches around the globe. And 215 times, the State Department stated that it had ‘no objection.’”

No wonder she said “What difference does it make” about a slain ambassador. To her it was small potatoes next to the bucks she and Slick were raking in.

Just don’t look to read or hear about this in the WaPo, the NYTimes, or any of the alphabet stations. They’re too busy doing feel-good features on Michele & the girls. Whipping up on the GOP presidential candidates. And beating up on anyone who dares question the Worm’s alleged love-of-country—which is a majority.

UPDATE:  Well, to be fair, this new WaPo piece is a start in the right direction, sure enough. Even the subject of this post is starting to leak out.
