What’s Missing From The Budget Debate

The article What’s Missing From The Budget Debate by Yaron Brook and Don Watkins at provides indispensable, intellectual ammunition that advocates of limited government need to win the federal budget debate and to win the future of America.

The arguments this article presents are unanswerable. The question is: will Americans have the guts to use this ammunition to help change America's disastrous course toward economic suicide?

The American Way of Life

You do not owe to your neighbors their Social Security, their medical security, nor their employment security. You owe them only the security of knowing that you will respect their lives and freedom.

Beyond this, you may choose to help your neighbors out of good will, but that is your choice, not society's, nor the government's.

Obama's altruistic foreign policy

Very astute of Caroline Glick to identify altruism as the essence of President Obama’s foreign policy. In fact, altruism is at the heart of nearly all of the Obama administration’s actions.

Given the evil means and ends (moral relativism, hypocrisy, socialism), which decent people recognize in Obama's policies, what does this say about altruism as a moral ideal?

I’ll give you a hint: Who is John Galt?

Syria is a dictatorship

Just in case you did not know, Syria is a typical Arab dictatorship.
It is a one party state, with little freedom of expression, assembly
or press. It harbors Islamic terrorist organizations, such as Hezbollah,
and enforces its dictates via secret police.

The New York Times concretizes this point in light of recent
popular protests that have rocked Middle East autocracies and

While President Obama has authorized U.S. military action against
a Libyan government that poses little threat to the U.S., he ignores
regimes, such as those in Syria and Iran, which are far more
dangerous to America's national interest.

Egalitarianism, a True Soul Killer

In his January 1st Op-Ed column, New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof promotes a new book, The Spirit Level: Why Greater Equality Makes Societies Stronger by “distinguished British epidemiologists” Richard Wilkinson and Kate Pickett.

According to Kristof, “The heart of their argument is that humans are social animals and that in highly unequal societies those at the bottom suffer from a range of pathologies.”

If this argument were true, then all the social ills discussed in Mr. Kristof’s article would be easily solved: just make everyone equally poor by government redistribution of wealth. Since misery loves company, then we would all be happy souls in the equality of our poverty.

Of course, this is absurd. Crime, obesity, drug abuse, high teenage birthrates, and the other pathologies Mr. Kristoff mentions may certainly be due to ignorance, poverty, and most of all, poor moral character; but if there is anyone who attributes such problems to socio-economic inequality, they are simply making excuses - either for their own bad behavior or, as I suspect in Mr. Kristoff’s case, for their fear and hatred of the responsibilities entailed in America’s economic and political freedom.

One need not read any "scientific" study or book by “distinguished British epidemiologists” to know BS when it stinks as bad as the tired, old, debunked arguments for egalitarianism regurgitated by leftists under the guise of science.
