What is Big Government?

13. December 2011


What is Big Government?

Big Government shouldn’t be confused with Government proper.  Government proper, limited in its power and scope to only those tasks which legitimately protect life, liberty, and property from fraud and criminality, is not Big Government.  It is the foundation of a free civilization. Here are some definitions of Big Government from a few online dictionaries. […]

To be against free markets is to be against freedom, choice, prosperity, and service

4. October 2010

1 Comment

People who say they don’t want free markets, or who say they want to reduce or eliminate competition, are really just people who want to eliminate the virtues of service, freedom, prosperity and choice. Competition is a by-product.  It’s not something desirable in itself – it’s just what happens when other desirable things happen. Competition […]

George Will Brings the Paddle Down on “Progressivism’s” Backside

Comments Off on George Will Brings the Paddle Down on “Progressivism’s” Backside

If you only read on thing this month, make it this article. Liberalism is, at heart, an impossible promise.   A promise that in aggregate the peoples of the world can consume more than they produce, that there is “such thing as a free lunch”.   Its ideal – the welfare state – is just as big […]

Cry your tears if you must, then sharpen your knives – the battle over healthcare is not close to over

21. March 2010


This post will be short, but we wanted to get something up tonight.  It’s been a disappointing day, but while some are despairing we are not.  The odds of overcoming a super-majority in the senate, a massive majority in the house, and a president elected by a large margin were always very steep.  But the […]

President Obama – Really bad at math or shameless deceiver? (Probably both)

5. March 2010

1 Comment

At his recent health care press conference President Obama told some real whoppers.  Among others, he said that his proposal “would bring down the cost of health care for millions—families, businesses and the federal government” and then added that it was “fully paid for.”  And not only that, but it would bring down the deficit […]

I am sharing this discussion which was sent to me.  It is a retelling of a history of disaster.  I also remember the warning that whoever does not learn from history is destined to relive it. Read below to the end. Learn what really happened. It can and will unless we vote out the people […]

A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing – the End of American Freedom

2. December 2009


What follows is excerpted from a letter from Stephen E. Frazer, MD, an anesthesiologist in Indianapolis, to Sen. Bayh.  Clearly Dr. Frazer has too much time or insomnia to have read the entire House Bill to “reform health care” in our country.  I have not included Dr. Frazer’s pleas to the senator, which will, no […]

Anatomy of a Trojan Horse: How Big Government Plans to Take Over Private Health Care and What We Can Learn From Arizona To Stop It

12. August 2009


Last week I attended a luncheon with some other small business people to hear the Arizona State Treasurer address Arizona’s private and public economic status.  The Treasurer pulled no punches. The state legislature is deadlocked over the budget and barring either immediate spending cuts or an immediate tax increase the state is 30-60 days away […]

The Two Biggest, Fattest Lies In The Health Care Reform Debate

24. July 2009


We have argued that* the current health care plan is bad for small business and our country’s economic recovery.  Our future, especially our children’s financial future, in large part hinges on the defeat of the current proposal.  There needs to be health reform, but not this, not socialized care that hurts the US economy.  New […]

“We are from the government and we are here to help you.”

23. June 2009


It’s very trendy amongst lovers of central power and big government (especially socialists and communists) to state that capitalistic free market economies cause the need for welfare programs. When we hear this from people, we have to be prepared to respond with logical correction.  This wrongheaded thinking – that centralized state control “cures” welfare whereas […]
