Trump’s inauguration speech: The rise of FDR and the fall of Reagan

Many times, inauguration speeches have been memorable for the way they communicate the vision and hope of the new president for America. And while Trump’s address contained a few memorable lines, as a whole it was, as Ben Shapiro would observe, “…a populist brew of government interventionism, patriotic rhetoric, law and order toughness, protectionist economics, and isolationist foreign policy. It was politically brilliant, and it had little to do with conservatism.”

Nanny-state liberals sue Coke for using tobacco-like deception

In a classic redistribute-the-wealth, liberty-robbing effort by nanny-state liberals, the non-profit Praxis Project, a “movement support intermediary committed to capacity building for social change”–like I said, nanny-state liberals–has filed a lawsuit against the Coca-Cola Company for engaging in what they…

The Deadly Impact of Government Regulations on Organ Transplants

Economists are sometimes considered to be a bit odd, and the same thing is sometimes said about libertarians. And since I’m a libertarian economist, I realize that makes me doubly suspect. So when I’ve written about the desirability of market-based organ transplants (see here, here, and here), I realize some people will instinctively object because […]

Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall, which Nation Has the Most Total Freedom of All?

Libertarians are sometimes described as people who don’t want the government to interfere in either the bedroom or boardroom, which is a shorthand way of saying that there should be both personal freedom and economic freedom. Based on this preference for liberty and a desire to avoid government coercion, what’s the most libertarian nation in […]

From New Hampshire at the Top to New York at the Bottom, Ranking Freedom at the State Level

Proponents of liberty generally are big fans of federalism. In part, this is simply an issue of “good governance” since both voters and lawmakers at the state and local level are more likely to actually understand the real issues in communities and be able to develop policies that are more sensible. But we also like […]

Borders Limit Freedom but Promote Liberty

Like all good libertarians, I hate waiting in government-mandated lines. Heck, you don’t even have to be a curmudgeonly libertarian to have unpleasant thoughts about the Post Office or Department of Motor Vehicles (not to mention the virtual lines that exist for people stuck on hold after calling the IRS or some other inefficient bureaucracy). […]

Gadsden flag and the liberal-left’s politically-correct revisionist history

Left-wing Democrats have a well-established track record of rewriting history when the facts of the past conflict with their political agenda of the present — particularly when it comes to issues of sexual orientation and race. Harvey Milk, the first…

My Presidential Choice

I periodically get asked who should be in the White House. Since I’m a policy wonk rather than a political pundit, I generally sidestep the question. Though it probably isn’t too hard to figure out my preference if you peruse what I’ve written about previous presidents. I’m a huge fan of both Ronald Reagan and […]

The reasons why the globalists are destined to lose

This is quite interesting. I’m not sure if I completely follow his reasoning (I think I do in the main). His supposition comes down to the old one that there is something innate in human beings to seek after liberty, which is I think, beyond rational debate. So, read carefully, it is a bit dense […]

GOP proposes forming DHS Pre-Crime unit to seize guns . . . Really!

Why this year you must REFUSE to celebrate “the 4th of July”

The “4th of July” is not a holiday. Any more than the “5th of July” is. They are dates on the calendar. The holiday we celebrate which falls on the 4th day of every July is America’s “Independence Day.” “Independence…

Who is really celebrating independence?

Why do we continue to celebrate Independence Day each July Fourth when we no longer cherish independence? Someday soon, our progressive politicians will propose celebrating the first Monday in July as Global Interdependence Day, and no one will protest as…

Happy Dependence Day for my Leftist Friends and Happy Independence Day for Normal People

Exactly five years, I created a Declaration of Dependence for my statist readers. It was supposed to be satire, but after looking at some new estimates of dependency, I now wonder whether I accidentally foretold America’s future. Anyhow, here’s how my attempt to be funny began. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all […]

July 4, 2016: 240 years as “One Nation, Under God”

If you’re a regular reader or listener of the Strident Conservative, you’ve heard me talking a lot lately about how our constitutional rights are being threatened, inching us closer, I believe, to becoming a post-constitutional America. Even if you disagree…
