Veep Pick Paul Ryan Is No Conservative

No sooner had Mitt Romney’s choice of Paul Ryan as his running mate become known than the world of punditry was abuzz with talk of “Ryanmania.” Since mania is by definition an excessive or unreasonable enthusiasm, the label may be regarded as an understatement. For while the seven-term Republican congressman from Wisconsin and chairman of the House Budget Committee is not yet a household name across America, he does generate excitement within the “conservative movement,” an excitement and enthusiasm that suggests the talking heads at Fox News and the dot.com warriors at The Weekly Standard have no more sense of conservative, constitutional government than the cheering chanting crowd of Republican partisans who greeted the vice presidential hopeful in Norfolk, Virginia, Saturday morning.

Like him or not, the one thing politically aware Americans are supposed to know about Paul Ryan is that he is a fiscal conservative, a bold budget hawk. He is, after all, the prime author of the House budget plan (titled “the Path to Prosperity”) to repeal the Obama health insurance program (“ObamaCare”), turn the Medicaid program for low-income Americans over to the states and create a private insurance option for Medicare beneficiaries starting in 2023. The plan would also turn food stamps and other federal programs for the poor into block grants to the states, with limits on the growth of those programs. If Republican voters have any doubts about Ryan’s commitment to budget austerity, they need only hear the Democrats’ outcry that Ryan’s “Path to Prosperity” will be a road to the poorhouse for elderly and low-income Americans.

Political Legitimacy and the Special Interest State

By James V. DeLong | August 11, 2012 | American Thinker

The current state of American politics is even worse than most people want to admit.

Commentary from both ends of the political spectrum assumes that we are in a debate over the scope and function of government. Should we have a welfare state in which the vicissitudes of life are smoothed out in favor of more egalitarian ethic?  Does an economy which rewards the most creative and energetic 20% actually result in a bigger pie for all?  Who is right about economic policy, Keynes or Hayek?

These questions are important.  But they have little to do with the real crisis, which concerns the fundamental legitimacy of the political system.

Over the past 80 years, we have created not a welfare state, but a Special Interest State.  In this model, various interests are allowed to capture pieces of the government — executive departments, congressional committees or appropriators, chunks of the tax code, regulatory agencies — and then wield their power for the advantage of the particular interest.

Thus, the radical environmentalists have seized the EPA and related agencies, where they get to block economic activity and energy extraction for the greater glory of Gaia.  The unions have taken over labor and the NLRB. The tax code is so riddled with special favors that fully half of the tax that would be collected under neutral principles is forgiven.  The Treasury and the Fed are the pillars of the financial establishment.

Thomas Sowell: ‘Market Failure’ and the Bronx Bombers

By Thomas Sowell | August 6, 2012 | WND

Thomas Sowell contrasts level of reason used analyzing politics vs. sports

It has long seemed to me that there is far more rationality in sports and in commentaries on sports than there is in politics and in commentaries on politics. What has puzzled me is why this is so when what happens in politics has far more serious effects on people’s lives.

To take one common example, there are many people who believe that if the market fails, the government should step in. But, if Robinson Cano strikes out, does anyone suggest that the Yankees should send in a pinch hitter for him on his next time at bat?

Everyone understands that a pinch hitter can also strike out and is less likely than Cano to get a hit or a home run. But the very possibility that the government can fail when it steps in to substitute for a failing market seldom occurs to many people. Even among some economists, “market failure” is a magic phrase that implies a need for government intervention.

We could argue about the empirical evidence as to when government pinch-hitting is better or worse. But there is seldom even an argument at all in some quarters, where government intervention follows market failure as the night follows the day.

Milton Friedman once pointed out, “A system established largely to prevent bank panics produced the most severe banking panic in American history.” Many other examples could be cited where government intervention made a bad situation worse.

The Morphing of the Tea Party

By Lee Cary | August 6, 2012 | American Thinker

The Tea Party movement morphed from protest signs to campaign signs.

That’s how a Texas Tea Party activist succinctly put it when I asked him what’s become of the movement. He said, “We put down our protest signs, and picked up campaign signs.”

He said that former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s victory lap after passing Obamacare was a “wake-up call.” It signaled that mass demonstrations would not bring significant changes. Change would only come through the ballot box.

Hearing the call, the Tea Party vacated the town squares and hit the streets where it began organizing for the long-term.

It was always a grassroots phenomenon, so no territorial shift was required.  And since it enjoyed little, or no, support from established GOP county structures, it didn’t need to ask permission from the local GOP leadership, or accept its judgment as authoritative.

Consequently, the movement was largely a Greenfield project, unencumbered by any pre-existing cadre of party hacks, as it morphed from event-driven protests to election-driven activism focused on supporting like-minded candidates.

Today, the local independence of Tea Party organizations remains, but communication between Tea Party organizations has continued to expand, in scope and sophistication.

Cold Hard Facts On Gun Bans: “The Cost Of Liberty Can Be Measured In the Loss of Life” [Video]

By Mac Slavo | August 3, 2012 | SHTFplan.Com

“Laws that forbid the carrying of arms…disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one.”

Thomas Jefferson

While anti-gun advocates put forth every argument under the sun for why you should not be able to own a “high capacity” magazine that holds more than 10 rounds, or that you shouldn’t be able to buy ammunition online, or that police should stop going to work until guns have been completely banned, the evidence for disarmament of law abiding citizens as a failed policy is overwhelming.

In Chicago, where guns have essentially been banned for personal defense, the murder of innocents has risen so sharply in recent months that Mayor Rahm Emanual has been left with no other option but to call on criminals to look to their morals and values to stop the carnage. Washington D.C., which bans the carrying of concealed weapons, has maintained one of the highest gun crime murder rates in the country for over three decades – since the legislation was passed in 1975. As the Washington Post notes, the disarming of local residents has been wholly ineffective noting that the “guns kept coming, and bodies kept falling.”

Economic Inequality is a Small Price to Pay for Staying Human

By Oleg Atbashian | August 5, 2012 | American Thinker

To paraphrase Baudelaire, the greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing the world of the moral superiority of collectivism.  According to Ayn Rand, if we don’t convince the world otherwise, nothing else will work.  Our greatest ally in this fight is human nature.  Our greatest asset is morality itself, which is really, truly, undeniably, and absolutely on our side.

Today’s political debates often end up in the following compromise: capitalism may be more economically efficient, but it’s no moral match to economic equality that benefits most people.  But the only way economic equality can benefit people is by pandering to their class envy.  In all other aspects — economical, political, cultural, philosophical, and spiritual — it’s a dastardly, immoral cause.

To begin with, it is the efficiency of capitalism that benefits most people.  Among other things, it raises everyone’s living standards and quality of life; expands consumer choices; boosts innovation that reduces the share of low-paying, mind-numbing manual jobs; increases the pool of well-paid professional jobs; gives the poor access to things that only the rich could enjoy a short while ago; promotes the creation of new cures of diseases; extends life expectancy and makes old age much more enjoyable.

The alternative to capitalism — whatever one would like to call it — is the loss of freedom, loss of choices, government corruption, and moral decay.  What do we get in return? The vague promise of economic equality.

Tea Party Unbound [Video]

By Clarice Feldman | August 5, 2012 | American Thinker

For several years now it seems to me that voters throughout the country in a perfectly peaceable way have demonstrated their revulsion at the ruling class’s political , academic and media elites, and the media’s disparagement or utter refusal to cover this  civil revolution has not succeeded in killing it.  Instead, as more people join in and see how the media distorts or refuses to report what they see with their own eyes, the sooner all of the major media will be joining Newsweek and CNN and the NYT and the Washington Post in their death throes. (This week it was so bad the far left Ford Foundation was granting media like the Washington Post and Los Angeles Times substantial funds to keep these half dead publications afloat.)

A.     The Beginning of the Ongoing Revolution

The revolution began in 2009 when voters were sickened by the Congressional and Presidential power grabs, government waste and huge spending bills and, taking a leaf from the early colonists, called themselves The Tea Party.  Watching the weak-kneed Republicans, upset with the Obama-Reid-Pelosi troika running roughshod, they realized that the “opposition” party was too unreliable to carry freedom’s torch.    The preposterous Senator Voinovich bawling at the John Bolton hearings when a real hero was being attacked and could not bring himself to effectively defend the nominee, was the capper: [Read more…]

Tea Party Is the New Reality

By  | July – August 2012 | American Spectator

Politicians who fail to recognize it are certain to become relics of the past.

THE 2012 REPUBLICAN PRIMARIES are showing early signs of another banner year for the Tea Party. The candidacies of Republican insurgents such as Richard Mourdock, Josh Mandel, Deb Fischer, Ted Cruz, and Mark Neumann follow the spirit of Senators Marco Rubio, Mike Lee, Pat Toomey, and Rand Paul—who each defeated establishment forces in their 2010 senatorial races. Meanwhile, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, who enacted ambitious reforms of public-sector unions in his state, trounced his recall opponent by a seven-point margin.

In just a few short years, the Tea Party has evolved from small, disparate groups scattered all around the country into a full-fledged movement with considerable influence. Tea Party candidates are no passing fad; they are trailblazers of a new, lasting political reality.

For too long, politicians got away with proclaiming the value of fiscal responsibility on the campaign trail without ever acting on it once they were in Washington. But thanks to the Internet, that’s no longer an option. Activists around the country have ready access to politicians’ voting records, speeches, and statements with just a few clicks of a mouse. It’s nearly impossible to mislead voters these days. That’s why it’s no longer acceptable for candidates to simply mouth conservative rhetoric. Their records must back it up. For that reason, many longtime incumbents, whose walk didn’t match their talk, had to go. They couldn’t pass muster in an age of transparency.

I Dont Think You All Get It: Fed Up Sen. Coburn Tangles With MSBNC Panel Over Tea Party & Constitution

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.)

On Thursday, Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and blasted the show’s panel for misrepresenting the principles of the Tea Party, saying they just don’t “get it.” He also gave the panel a solid history lesson on the Constitution after at least one panelist admitted he was unsure in which section the enumerated powers were located.

After talking fondly of Texas candidate for U.S. Senate Ted Cruz and his victory in the runoff election, Coburn said he was “really amused” by the way they spoke about the Tea Party. “I don’t think you all get it,” he added.

What’s Past is Prologue: Caddell on the Midterm Elections

By Robert Costa | September 2, 2010 | National Review

In Jimmy Carter’s White House, Patrick Caddell was, in the words of Teddy White, the “house Cassandra” — an all-too-candid pollster whose prophecies spooked the president’s other advisors. Three decades later, Caddell again is warning his fellow Democrats about electoral doom. As he sips an iced tea over lunch in midtown Manhattan, Caddell sighs and tells me that the lessons of the Carter years appear to be all but forgotten by the current crop of Democrats in Washington.

“President Obama’s undoing may be his disingenuousness,” Caddell says. After campaigning for post-partisanship, Obama, he observes, has lurched without pause to the left. “You can’t get this far from what you promised,” Caddell says, “especially when people invest in hope — you must understand that obligation. The killer in American politics is disappointment. When you are elected on expectations, and you fail to meet them, your decline steepens.”

In 1979, as Carter’s poll numbers slid south amidst a sagging economy, Caddell drafted a memo to the president urging him to recognize that the nation was “deep in crisis.” Gazing upon today’s electoral landscape, Caddell paints an even bleaker picture. “We may be at a pre-revolutionary moment,” he says, unsmiling. “Everything is in motion.” This November, he predicts, “will be more of a national referendum than any [midterm election] since Watergate.”

The polling data show how restless the country is. “A Rasmussen poll from earlier this year showed just 21 percent of voters believing that the federal government enjoys the consent of the governed — an astounding figure,” Caddell says. “Then a CNN poll showed that 56 percent of Americans worried that the federal government poses a direct threat to their freedom.”

The Private Sector Built Everything

By Mike Flynn | August 3, 2012 | Breitbart News

One of the more amusing distractions of this campaign has been the post-modernist deconstruction of Obama’s “you didn’t build that” comment.  The media has been desperately spinning that when Obama said “that”, he was referring to collective goods like “roads and bridges” and not the entrepreneurs’ individual businesses. Okay, fine. But where the hell did the government get the money to build those “roads and bridges”?

Krugman, ThinkProgress. As Dangerous as it Gets

By  | August 1, 2012 | Tenth Amendment Center

Get the New Documentary Today!

Today, Paul Krugman decided to give us his wisdom on the subject of nullification – by saying almost nothing at all. In a short blog post, linking to a “report” by ThinkProgress, he notes – laughingly – that a Senate Candidate in Texas supports the idea of states nullifying acts on Congress. He doesn’t say a thing about nullification, but he’s obviously brushing it off as idiotic. As Tom Woods wrote on his blog today, “Paul Krugman thinks the idea of state nullification of unconstitutional laws is so self-evidently stupid that he doesn’t even need to offer an argument against it.”

Digging a little deeper – just a little, mind you – you’ll see that the ThinkProgress article he linked to was referring to Ted Cruz, who had a proposal where two or more states could work together to refuse compliance with the Affordable Care Act. Not outright nullification, but we certainly know that non-compliance in large numbers can in fact nullify a federal law.

No Thanks, We’ll Do It Our Way

By Jim Yardley | August 2, 2012 | American Thinker

The Founding Fathers are usually credited with designing the nation as a republic when they drafted the Constitution.  Some insist that the nation be described as a democratic republic.

But it might be even more accurate to say that they created a federal democratic republic.  By creating a federal system, the founders also created a mechanism that has prevented a second American Revolution for nearly 240 years.

Each of the “several states” is independent; they can create their own laws, set their own taxes, and generally ignore the laws of the other 49 states, so long as those laws recognize the supremacy of the U.S. Constitution.  There are exceptions to this, of course, where the states have cooperated in drafting uniform laws to facilitate interstate commerce, such as the Uniform Commercial Code.  Generally however, each state goes its own way.  While all states have laws against murder, for example, each state defines what behavior constitutes premeditated murder versus manslaughter, and those definitions may vary from state to state.

But the bonus that the founders provided by making the nation a federal system is the availability of escape from intolerable abuses of governmental authority.  The federal system allows people to vote with their feet.  The latest census shows this “pressure release valve” working as the populations of California and New York decline while the populations of Indiana and Texas rise.

The Oval: This movement is only getting stronger [Video]

Good afternoon.

At some point, I wonder when the mainstream media will realize that there is a revolution going on in this country. These reporters and producers think the biggest revolt in the past year was a bunch of heavily pierced young adults camping out in urban parks. If six of them got together and held up a sign, it was BIG NEWS! Lots of coverage.

But in the rest of the country, we didn’t really care. Why? Because we were working on a different revolution. A different movement. Call it the Tea Party movement.Call it the revolt of the true conservatives. Call it the Great Awakening. Call it whatever you want. But starting in 2009, it has been ringing up victories, large and small.

STUART, Fla. – Across the country today, Americans are flocking to Chick-fil-A restaurants in a national show of support for the eatery after the company’s president publicly stated his support for the biblical definition of marriage between one man and one woman.

“It’s packed!” said Colleen Shaler of Port St. Lucie, Fla., who had lunch at a crowded franchise in nearby Stuart, Fla.

The parking lot was overflowing and cars were wrapped around the building waiting to reach the drive-up window. There were extra attendants outside on foot taking people’s orders before they even got near the window.

Five Ways @RomneyResponse Can Effectively Fight the Media

By John Nolte | August 1, 2012 | Breitbart News

In the almost four years I’ve worked for Breitbart News, I’ve consistently averaged about 125 posts a month, but because I went to public schools, I can’t tell you how many posts that totals up to. My guess is that it’s a lot. What I have never done in a single one of these posts, though, is to offer anyone unsolicited advice. I once ran a campaign and got shellacked; so who am I to give election advice? I once made a film and it sucked; so who am I to give creative advice?

Milton Friedman Schools Phil Donahue (and Barack Obama) on Capitalism and Greed [Video]

By Rush Limbaugh | July 31, 2012 | RushLimbaugh.Com

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: We have the 100th birthday today of Milton Friedman.  Milton Friedman — some of you in this audience may not know — Milton Friedman, University of Chicago, a brilliant economist.  He and his wife were a dynamo.  They were a dynamic team.  In economics, free market capitalism, Milton Friedman’s a rock star.  Milton Friedman should be the Bible for young people, or anybody, trying to understand capitalism and free markets.  Back in — I think the year was 1995.  Back in 1995, I interviewed Milton Friedman for an issue of the Limbaugh Letter.  That’s still the most widely read political newsletter in the country.  You can subscribe to it.  You go to RushLimbaugh.com and you can get a combo subscription of that and Rush 24/7, the website.

Milton Friedman, while being interviewed by me — Snerdley will remember ’cause this is back in the days when Snerdley hung around to listen to the interviews taking place.  I wish I could remember the exact words, but Milton Freidman paid me a high compliment. I think he suggested that it would be very helpful if more people listened to me.  I think that’s what it was, wasn’t it?  And that, believe me, made my month, day, even year, because Milton Friedman, if he wasn’t in a class all by himself, it certainly didn’t take long to call the roll.  He ended up at the Hoover Institution, the conservative think tank out at Stanford.

The Moral Case for Capitalism

FreedomWorks Unveils Theme of its 2012 Agenda to TheBlaze — and How You Can Help Decide it [Video]

By  | July 25, 2012 | The Blaze

FreedomWorks Reveals 12 in 12 Campaign for 2012 Election Year to The Blaze

FreedomWorks, an organization that advocates “lower taxes, less government, and more freedom,” has made an impressive impact on the political debate in recent years.  Glenn Beck fans, in particular, will remember the “Freedom Connector,” a social networking site for patriots that helped revolutionize how like-minded, small-government proponents can connect.

Now, with hundreds of thousands of grassroots volunteers and countless more supporters, the organization has revealed to TheBlaze a “sneak peek” of its 2012 agenda ahead of the official announcement at FreePAC tomorrow in Dallas in an event tied to Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Love” initiative this week (tickets for “Restoring Love” can be found here).

The theme?  “12 in ‘12,” or twelve main policy proposals deemed to be the most important solutions to our nation’s problems this year, that FreedomWorks will be pushing across the board.

Even more, in keeping with the organization’s focus on grassroots action, the twelve proposals are actually still being voted on by the public, and the voting will remain open almost until the announcement. [Read more…]

Auditing the Fed Is a Sideshow: Who Audits the Auditors?

By Anthony Wile | July 28, 2012 | The Daily Bell

On Wednesday, Ron Paul’s bill to audit the Federal Reserve was overwhelmingly passed by the U.S. House of Representatives. The vote was 327 to 98. You would think that a bill with such overwhelming support would easily become law. But it won’t, because Barack Obama and the Democrats plan to kill it. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has already said that the Senate will not even consider the bill. But of course if Barack Obama called Harry Reid and told him that he wants this bill to get through the Senate so that he could sign it then Harry Reid would be singing a much different tune. Sadly, we all know that is not going to happen. Barack Obama’s good buddy Ben Bernanke called the Audit the Fed bill a “nightmare scenario” last week, and Obama is certainly not going to do anything to upset Bernanke – especially this close to the election. – Daily Caller

An audit of the Federal Reserve would be nice but really it wouldn’t change anything. In fact, it would likely prove a kind of sideshow from reality, which is that monopoly central banking should simply be abolished.

And that probably won’t happen until people get so sick and tired of being driven into bankruptcy and despair that they begin to kick the doors down and arrest the criminals cowering inside.

And they ARE real criminals. The system is responsible for debasing currency the world over and driving billions into poverty and even suicide. In the West it has blighted the hopes and dreams of millions who scratched and saved and then found their portfolios devalued by half or whole on a single day.

Who would you trust more when it comes to the Federal Reserve Board: Ron Paul or Chuck Schumer?

Dems Complain Ron Paul’s Audit the Fed Bill Politicizes the Fed

By William Bigelow | July 25, 2012 | Breitbart News

Who would you trust more when it comes to the Federal Reserve Board: Ron Paul or Chuck Schumer?

If you answered Schumer, who wants the Fed to pour more money into the economy and inflate the money supply in time for the 2012 election, please report to Democratic Party Headquarters to pick up your check.

Paul on the other hand, is sponsoring a bill that would require the Federal Reserve board to be audited regarding its monetary policy decisions. The Federal Reserve Transparency Act, H.R. 459, requires the Fed to open up its books so the American public can see exactly how the Fed manipulates the money supply. The 2010 Dodd-Frank financial reform law expanded the auditing of the Fed, but it somehow missed auditing the Fed’s monetary policy decisions.

Shocking.

Democrats, panicked that their politicizing of the Fed might be stymied by a public accounting, were outraged at Paul’s proposal for transparency. House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer whined:

The Simple Virtue of Leaving Men Alone to Do Their Work

The Art of Building Things

By Daniel Greenfield | July 18, 2012 | Sultan Knish

Creativity is an individual act. The act of building something, whether with hammers, blueprints, words, boards or plans is individualistic. Collectives can build, but not creatively. A mass has no vision because it has no personality. It can follow rules but not dreams.

The soul of American exceptionalism lay in a society which empowered the creative talents of the individual, not through grants, regulations, instructional pamphlets, inspectors and guidelines, but through the simple virtue of leaving men alone to do their work.

Freedom is the greatest creative force because it liberates the individual to build and as freedom diminishes within a society so does its creativity. Progress in restricted areas dwindles to a trickle as collectives expend a thousand times the money and effort, and still fail to equal the achievements of individuals operating on shoestring budgets.

The Soviet Union fell because its Communist collectives were not able to equal the West in the military or the economic arena. The only technique that Communist states ever had was to create a heavily regulated top-down infrastructure and when a crisis occurred, a mass of people would be thrown at the problem.

Brandon Smith: Where Is The Line For Revolution?

By Brandon Smith | July 19, 2012 | Alt-Market.Com

The subject of revolution is a touchy one.  It’s not a word that should be thrown around lightly, and when it is uttered at all, it elicits a chaotic jumble of opinions and debates from know-it-alls the world over.  The “R” word has been persona non grata for quite some time in America, and until recently, was met with jeers and knee-jerk belligerence.  However, let’s face it; today, the idea is not so far fetched.  We have a global banking system that is feeding like a tapeworm in the stagnant guts of our economy.  We suffer an election system so fraudulent BOTH sides of the political spectrum now represent a hyper-rich minority while the rest of us are simply expected to play along and enjoy the illusion of choice.  We have a judicial body that has gone out of its way to whittle down our civil liberties and to marginalize our Constitution as some kind of “outdated relic”.  We have an executive branch that issues special orders like monarchical edicts every month, each new order even more invasive and oppressive than the last.  And, we have an establishment system that now believes it has the right to surveil the citizenry en masse and on the slightest whim without any consideration for 4th Amendment protections.
