‘Going Galt’ Without Realizing

In March of this year, there was a firestorm of libertarians and ultra-conservatives taking up the call of John Galt from Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged.  Galt is a bright inventor/engineer that decides to quit furnishing his skills to the economy when his company goes Marxist.

The Public Option is Alive

There are at least two major pushes left if the public option is to be defeated.  Currently, the administration is using backroom maneuvers to push for Congressional support from the middle.  Why backroom?  The Congressional leadership knows that if it creates the kind of outcry that occurred in October (town halls, massive marches on Washington, etc), they are guaranteed to ...
