America’s Diminishing Economic Liberty

The Index of Economic Freedom is my favorite annual publication from the Heritage Foundation. It’s a rich source of information, using dozens of data sources, about economic liberty around the world. I first wrote about the Index back in 2010 and shared the bad news that the U.S. score dropped dramatically in Obama’s first year. […]

New Data Shows Big Loss of Economic Freedom in the United States

My favorite Heritage Foundation publication (other than…ahem…my studies on government spending and the flat tax) is the annual Index of Economic Freedom. Like the Fraser Institute’s Economic Freedom of the World and the World Economic Forum’s Global Competitiveness Report, the Index is a broad measure of liberty to engage in voluntary exchange in a system […]

McConnell playbook: When victory is certain, surrender!

Current polling numbers show that Obama is looking a little more like the anti-christ than the messiah these days. In a new Quinnipiac University poll, the President’s approval rating is at its lowest point in Quinnipiac polling history–nationally or in any state–at 34%. This puts him within striking distance of the second-term average of 34.4% of Richard Nixon, which was reported by Gallup at the height of Watergate scandal. And it’s not just his job performance. A new CNN poll shows that Obama’s personal attributes are on par—gratuitous golf reference for the over 150 rounds Obama has played while in office—to reach record lows as well. In another CNN poll about the 2014 mid-term elections, Republicans now have a 49%-47% edge over Democrats in a generic ballot question, which asked respondents to choose between the two parties in their congressional district without identifying the candidates. Yes, there is every reason to believe that the GOP should have a good year in 2014. So, how do the establishment Republicans react to such promising news? Well, according the current Senate leader of the GOP—hopefully, not for long—Mitch McConnell (R-INO – KY), you surrender even before you fight. Regarding the upcoming budget fight—which only exists because he surrendered during the last budget fight—Mediocre McConnell had this to say: Senate Minority […] . . . → Read More: McConnell playbook: When victory is certain, surrender! . . . → Read More: McConnell playbook: When victory is certain, surrender!

Conservative Comedy 11/8/13

As John McCain would say, Allahu Akbar It’s Friday! That means it’s time for some Conservative Comedy at the Strident Conservative. As I do every Friday, I bring you some of the best Conservative political satire on the internet, sure to provide a good laugh to begin your weekend. The fiasco known as Obamacare continues to dominate the news. Remember when Obama made this promise? ”If you like your health care plan, you will be able to keep your health care plan. Period.” Well, now that millions of Americans are losing those plans, Obama is finding it necessary to correct his statement. The Conservative Comic at Hope n’ Change shows us one of the steps Obama might take to correct the record. Jodi Miller at Newsbusted has plenty so say about the Obamacare launch, along with an interesting tidbit about fake Obamacare websites being used to steal people’s identities. Not to worry though. In one easy step, you can make sure you don’t fall for one of these fake sites. Obamacare also might end up helping Joe Biden if he decides to run for president. Find out more about these and other stories in this week’s edition.  And while taxpayer-funded commercials propaganda paints a rosy picture of the Affordable Care Act, […] . . . → Read More: Conservative Comedy 11/8/13 . . . → Read More: Conservative Comedy 11/8/13
