Four Reasons Why I Won’t Vote for Barack Obama

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Monday, 05 November 2012. Posted in Opinion, Publisher's Corner

Heading into the election, President Obama remains popular with supporters. But there are many good reasons not to vote for him (or for Mitt Romney). For those who care about freedom, there is a better choice.

Four Reasons Why I Won’t Vote for Barack Obama

Four years ago, Barack Obama was chosen to be President of the United States in one of the most momentous elections in recent memory. Running after eight years of George W. Bush when the country was fatigued from the endless “War on Terror” and terrified by an economic crisis surpassed only by the the Great Depression, Obama offered Americans “hope and change.”

Brandon Raub and the Bonfire of Our Liberties

An American citizen who has not been charged with a crime has been investigated by federal agencies and local police and detained in a psychiatric ward against his will, all because he holds politically incorrect opinions.

Watch what you say online because the First Amendment appears to have been revoked.

The Failure of Inflation

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Thursday, 02 August 2012. Posted in Opinion, Publisher's Corner

Big government technocrats have long believed they could manage the economy through government spending and manipulation of the money supply. Their program having failed, the world now faces an unprecedented crisis.

The Failure of Inflation

In the classic approach to “tuning” the economy, leftist, pro-government policy analysts once were keen to argue that boosting inflation would cure unemployment. And there are those who still believe this.

The idea is based on the work of A.W. Phillips and his now famous curve describing the relationship between inflation and unemployment. The Phillips curve suggests that periods of high unemployment tend to have a negative impact on prices, lowering inflation. The reverse holds true, in this model, for periods of low unemployment that then lead to higher inflation.

Obama and the Media: Genius on Display

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Wednesday, 18 July 2012. Posted in Opinion, Publisher's Corner

Obama tells crowd suffering in the heat during a speech that they can expect help from paralegals (he meant paramedics). Will the media, again, give the President a pass for this gaffe?

Obama and the Media: Genius on Display

Remember the media feeding frenzy over the lack of intellectual firepower supposedly displayed by Sarah Palin? The mainstream media erupted over her comment about being able to see Russia from an Alaskan island. CNN went so far as to send someone out to the Bering Strait to verify the claim.

Today’s Feudalism: Your Property Is Not Your Own

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Saturday, 07 July 2012. Posted in Opinion, Publisher's Corner

Americans believe themselves to be free, but the cornerstone of freedom is the right to own property. Unfortunately, in America today, as in the Middle Ages, that right does not exist.

Today’s Feudalism: Your Property Is Not Your Own

When you purchase a home, or other piece of real estate, you assume that you now have a bit of private property on which you may do what you wish, as long as you are not violating the rights of others.

The Destruction of the Bill of Rights

“The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance; which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime and the punishment of his guilt.”

The Destruction of the Bill of Rights

Every American should be concerned about the story of Mannie Garcia.

The Socialist Surge in France, Wisconsin and California

Common Sense says don’t spend more than you make. Socialists around the world have never heard of common sense.

The Socialist Surge in France, Wisconsin and California

As the United States and the rest of the world continues to totter on the edge of a financial abyss, both politicians and people alike continue to call forever bigger government. If this is not surprising, it is nevertheless the chief oddity of modern life.

The Economy and General Electric

PROTESTORS DISRUPTED GENERAL ELECTRIC’S SHAREHOLDERS MEETING OUTRAGED AT THE COMPANY FOR NOT PAYING MORE IN TAXES AND FOR NOT COMPENSATING RETIREES FOR INFLATION. BUT THE ANGER AT THE COMPANY WAS MISDIRECTED.

The Economy and General Electric

General Electric, holding its shareholder's meeting in Detroit, faced waves of protestors arguing that the company hasn't paid its taxes and should do so immediately. Other protestors claimed the company should raise payments to retirees because of inflation. Both sets of protestors are targeting the wrong villain.

Why Liberals (and everyone else) Should Support Ron Paul

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Thursday, 12 April 2012. Posted in Opinion, Publisher's Corner

As candidates in 2012, neither President Obama nor Mitt Romney offer voters a reasonable option when it comes to respecting and protecting the rights of Americans. The only option is Ron Paul.

Why Liberals (and everyone else) Should Support Ron Paul

At this late stage in the 2012 presidential campaign, why should anyone continue to support Ron Paul?

Get Glenn Mobile!

While oppressive government is the most immediately apparent threat to life and liberty, other threats exist. Most notably, among these, is debilitating disease.

Get Glenn Mobile!

There are many threats to freedom. The most obvious is that presented by cancerous forms of government that fail to respect the rights of citizens. The history of the 20th century makes the immediacy and danger of this threat obvious. Stalin, Hitler, Mao, Pol Pot, and innumerable other dictators and heads of aberrant governments slaughtered millions, and imprisoned millions more. Arguably, more than any other century, the 20th was the century of blood and tears.

Government, the Great Thief

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Thursday, 08 March 2012. Posted in Opinion, Publisher's Corner

Government should protect the rights of citizens. But today it has abandoned this role and become the greatest of thieves, taking from taxpayers to support favored and special interests.

Government, the Great Thief

The proper role for government to play, if we admit that government should exist at all, is to protect each of us from those who would infringe upon our rights. 

The Problem with Governor Romney

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Monday, 27 February 2012. Posted in Opinion, Publisher's Corner

Mitt Romney's problem is that he is perceived as a big government liberal. Can he convince conservatives and libertarians otherwise? Or, if he is nominated, will he drive the conservative base out of the GOP?

The Problem with Governor Romney

What’s wrong with Mitt Romney?

For conservatives in the primaries, the answer seems to be that he is not perceived as a conservative. And there’s good reason for that. Just look at the Massachusetts’s health care system championed by the Governor. For all intents and purposes, its pretty similar to Obamacare.

It’s so similar that even Obama once alluded to it. Writing for The New York Times in March 2010, op-ed columnist Gail Collins recalled the President’s remarks on the issue to Matt Lauer on the “Today” show. “I mean, a lot of commentators have said this is sort of similar to the bill that Mitt Romney, the Republican governor and now presidential candidate, passed in Massachusetts,” Obama said at the time.

This suited Collins, and probably the Times just fine.

Collins wrote: “...it really does seem as though the two plans are a whole lot alike, and Romney deserves credit for working with the Massachusetts Democrats to get such an ambitious, sweeping reform enacted.”

Gas Prices on the Rise, But New Discoveries Prove Oil is Still Out There

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Friday, 24 February 2012. Posted in Opinion, Publisher's Corner

Rising gas prices have Americans on edge. They also have the economy on edge. Higher prices at the pump hurt not just commuters but anyone who relies on transportation in the delivery of goods or services. This means pressure on employers at just the time

Gas Prices on the Rise, But New Discoveries Prove Oil is Still Out There

Opinions vary on the cause of the increases, but fear and speculation seem to be the driving forces. Kevin G. Hall, writing on the issue for the Seattle Times, reported that some think speculators are behind the increased prices at the pump.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Constitution

Written by Dennis Behreandt on Wednesday, 08 February 2012. Posted in Opinion, Publisher's Corner

Ruth Bader GinsburgSupreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg recently traveled to Egypt where she gave advice to that nation’s new leaders regarding the adoption of a new constitution. Alarmingly, she told Egyptian television that they should not model their new national charter on the U.S. Constitution.

"I would not look to the U.S. Constitution, if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012," she told Al Hayat television. "I might look at the constitution of South Africa. That was a deliberate attempt to have a fundamental instrument of government that embraced basic human rights, have an independent judiciary. It really is, I think, a great piece of work that was done."

So what kind of constitution is it that South Africa has created and that Justice Ginsburg finds so appealing?

Unlike the U.S. Constitution that actually attempts to place limits on the power of government, the South African constitution authorizes a theoretical grant of total power to the South African government.
