The “Mandates” That Never Were

By David G. Johnson If I were in possession of a time machine, the top of my destination list would be the Constitutional Convention. Maybe the First Continental Congress.

By Rod Thomson As it appears that for the second time this century the United States will elect a president who did not win the popular vote, there are the predictable calls for killing the Electoral College.

Comey Decision Clarifies Our Sacred Duty on Election Day

by Rep. Julio Gonzalez Clearly, handing Hillary Clinton the keys to the White House under these circumstances flies in the face of the disdain the Founders had against abusive power by a ruling aristocracy.

4 Reasons the Government Cannot Run the Economy

We continually see the relative failure of government actions to manipulate the economy to function at just the right, optimal level. There is a reason. Even if government was peopled by actual experts with a deep and wise understanding of economics, such actions would remain doomed to failure. It’s not that an economy as powerful […]
