The Constitution Wants Obama and Democrats to Negotiate

By |October 8th, 2013|Categories: Blog, Economics / Politics|Tags: |

Here's my hot sports (politics) opinion: Barack Obama is being absolutely ridiculous by refusing to negotiate with Republicans on the government shutdown (and soon the debt ceiling as well). As most of you know, I'm a libertarian and I strongly dislike the policies of almost every president and congressmen that has been elected in my lifetime. I don't pick sides

When you are a politically active person in the United States who doesn't identify with the Republican or Democrat party, those in one of the two main parties have a very hard time understanding you. People have called me everything from idealistic or impractical to stupid or crazy. They don't understand why I wouldn't be willing to align myself with

You may have read in the news that the Obama administration is delaying implementation of portions of Obamacare because they are too complicated and are simply not ready to go into practice on the timelines originally passed in the law. While some portions are being delayed, other parts of the law are in full effect already. Now I'm just wondering;

President Barack Obama is about to unveil his budget proposal, and parts of his proposal have already made their way into the news. One of the aspects of his new budget is that he wants to prohibit anyone from saving more than $3,000,000 in an IRA. The White House issued a statement regarding this new proposal: Under current rules, some

If you've been reading this blog for a while then you know I'm not a fan of the spending that going on in Washington D.C. right now. I'm also not a fan of the spending that is scheduled to happen over the next few years. The government not only plans to keep spending more, but we are going to add

Only Idiots Think Votes are “Wasted”

You may have heard about the presidential election coming up on November 6th, 2012. According to the news it's Barack Obama vs. Mitt Romney. In reality, it's Barack Obama vs. Mitt Romney vs. Gary Johnson vs. Jill Stein vs. a number of other candidates with access to less than 270 electoral votes (and thus, truly ineligible to win the presidency).

If you've listened to 37 seconds of Rush Limbaugh then you've surely heard him criticize Barack Obama for being a socialist. If you've watched 83 seconds of Fox News, you've certainly heard Republican politicians lambasting Barack Obama and other Democrats for expanding the size of government. And yes, Barack Obama has absolutely increased the size of the federal government. In

Think about how much you pay for electricity right now. Now think about paying 1.25 times that much. Or maybe 2 times that much. Heck, maybe five times that much. I don't know how much more expensive power will become, but you can bet your patootie it's gonna go up soon thanks to the EPA. Coal is responsible for 54%
