Sounds like a really good time.
My vote goes to losing our private property rights. It is paramount to liberty and a bedrock of the Founders intent to guarantee freedom in America. It is under attack from a multitude of fronts. Some of it is likely unknowingly such as the response I’ve received on my post concerning corporate tax evasion. I see both conservatives and libertarians alike jumping in with the left with the view that the wealthy and the big corporations should pay more in taxes. This is a result of our deeply flawed system of taxation.
When you think of what is driving most of our elections and our differences in ideologies politically, it has its genesis in class warfare, envy and greed. Our two-party system only serves to magnify this as both parties push for big government. The fuel for their arguments is our wealth. You can throw out all of the window dressing as both parties have a different sales pitch, but they both have the same prize in mind. Both would also vehemently deny this accusation and place the blame at the feet of their opponents but the results don’t lie.
Be sure to read the rest.
Fleece: Power Of The Press
The goal is influence. And through influence, the exertion of power. The news media accurately understands the power they hold in America; in many ways a power much greater than any politician could dream of wielding. This power stems from our naiveté and the fact we truly have no other resource to get information about our society. If not the news, whom are we to trust? The politicians? Most people don’t even trust the guy they voted for. How about your friendly neighborhood bureaucrat? Yeah, thought so. The truth is, we have to rely on someone to tell us what is going on. None of us have the resources nor the time to sit in on press briefings. None of us have the influence to get an one-on-one interview with the President to ask him all the hardball questions we so want to. Thus, we are forced to rely on the people who do.
