Please, Don’t Let Another Congressional Staffer Go to Bed Hungry

In some corners of elite opinion working on Capital Hill means one is laboring in the political equivalent of Wal–Mart. Hill workers have their pity while toiling in a crowded ideologyshop for chump change. Yet, just like Wal–Mart, each time an election or retirement causes a new Congressional store to open the line of applicants… Read More »

Over-Regulation Nation

Liberals love to cite how tax rates are at their lowest in recent memory, ballooning corporate profits, and how Bush era policies caused the financial meltdown.  They seem to think these are ample reasons to argue why we shouldn’t deregulate our over-regulated economy.  However, it is becoming harder for the political left to argue this… Read More »

Capitalist America, to Be or Not to Be Free

According to Barack Obama, the Democrat party and Occupy Wall Street, society’s ills are primarily the fault of the entrepreneurial class.  The rich and greedy.  Those evil corporations who sap the life blood out of working class men and women.  For maximum profit.  Servants to the god of mammon, capitalists defraud their workers of time… Read More »

Wanna See A Breakdown In Society? Look No Further Than Your Nearest Grocery Store

While CDN is primarily considered to be a political website, I contend that mundane aspects of our culture can sometimes be a part of the equation that get overlooked.  One of the issue that’s been on my mind lately is how we treat each other publicly.  If the last couple of decades were known for… Read More »

Purely libertarian .. in Space

This post at Spaceflight Now about the possibility of the IIS space station going unmanned in November sparked this side commentary on The Other McCain delving into the deterioration of America’s commitment to win the science and technology race, and the federal task of providing for the national security. The offshoot post by Chris Smith… Read More »

What Failed Capitalism

The moniker of the Liberal Left is “Capitalism has Failed.” However when we had true capitalism and free market in this nation it did anything but fail. What the Liberals mean when they say Capitalism has failed, is that big “fat cats” have gobbled up all the money and left us garbling for their crumbs.… Read More »

The Country Needs a Plan for Growth and Texas Has the Answers

The Lone Star State is a symbol of success for free-market policy. Austin Local Me reported in May that Texas created more jobs than the eight other states that created any jobs at all combined according to Bureau of Labor Statistics. Nine states, including Texas, had more jobs in March 2011 than in that month five… Read More »

Dodd-Frank: A Nightmare On So Many Levels

Senators Barney Frank and Chris Dodd put together yet another progressive nightmare for our marginally free-market system. Granted the thought of those two alone in a dark corner is nausea-inducing, that’s not where I’m going. The Dodd-Frank bill, otherwise known as the “Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act” neither reforms Wall Street nor protects… Read More »
