Property Rights 101: The Foundation Of Capitalism Explained

homestead

The foundation of capitalism is property. Every non-capitalist system requires violating property rights. Socialism steals almost all property, the nanny-state bans some property and regulates others, the welfare system steals and gives away property, and cronyism both steals and regulates property in a way that makes the corrupt rich; all violations of capitalism requires violating property in some way. This is why it’s fundamental for capitalists to understand why we believe in a system of property rights, why we should

Rand Paul: Freeze Spending, Cut Taxes, Balance The Budget

rand paul

Rand Paul is one of the strongest voices for liberty in DC. He has the unique ability of uniting both conservatives and libertarians rather than alienating one group completely. This gives him the great ideas of strong free-market views mixed with the ability to actually make a dent in how things are done. Here’s a video of Rand Paul talking about what we should do going forward when it comes to budgets, spending and taxes. Freezing spending or cutting spending

Rand Paul: Where The [Blank] Were The Marines?

Rand Paul needs to get angry more often, because this is pure gold. I hope more people begin to see that Rand is dead right. Let’s stop the politically correct bullcrap and start asking real questions about our foreign policy, Libya, and eventually Pakistan and Egypt. My favorite line: “If he says the buck stops here, someone should be fired.”

The Differences Between Conservatives And Libertarians

I adhere to a very different viewpoint than my conservative friends. But still, we often are in agreement on politics. In fact, since Obama has been in office, most of my attention has been focusing on Obama’s failures, and this has led to more agreement with conservatives than ever — though this could change if a Republican takes office. Regardless, we both agree that Obama is a tyrant, that spending is out of control, that capitalism is great, that taxes

Who Is a Libertarian?

tea party protest

Those of us who favor individual freedom with personal responsibility have been unable to agree upon a generally acceptable name for ourselves and our philosophy of liberty. This would be relatively unimportant except for the fact that the opposition will call us by some name, even though we might not desire to be identified by any name at all. Since this is so, we might better select a name with some logic instead of permitting the opposition to saddle us

CEO Rants to Employees: If Obama Wins, You Might Get Fired

The following is a message that David Siegel, Founder and CEO of WestGate resorts, sent to his employees. This letter took guts, and it’s true. Obama’s policies will lead to people getting fired. It will be more expensive to hire employees, and that means less will happen. This is economically¬†unavoidable. So good for him to have the guts to actually say it. I’m a small business owner, my father is a small business owner, and most of my grandparents and

We Should Be Proud To Be Radicals

Just a few minutes ago, someone loudly left our Facebook page, saying we were too “extreme” because we used the phrase “huge issues” when talking about flaws within the GOP. In other words, they thought using those two words was just crossing the line when it comes to the GOP. They believed that being moderate “Republicans” was a better strategy than sticking up for principle. In a sense, the real dangers of “extremism” are those who are so extremely blinded

Do You Secretly Hate The Rich?

We’re all just wasting our time until we finally work up the “politically incorrect” courage to say that economic bigotry isn’t something we should tolerate from anyone, whether they’re conservative, liberal, libertarian, or anything else. Economic bigotry is so common, it’s seeped into the rhetoric even of the capitalists who supposedly embrace every economic “class”. So what is an “economic bigot”? Anyone who thinks it’s fine to steal from the rich but not the middle class. Anyone who thinks the

Obama Bribes Defense Companies To BREAK Law

obama arrogant

In the past, Obama has flagrantly violated the law and has essentially led a campaign to undermine the constitution. He has ignored congress, passed legislation through executive orders, and has even taken over corporations. But now, he has “accomplished” what is likely the most corrupt scandal so far in his presidency. He has told defense companies to ignore federal law requiring that they warn people of layoffs within 60 days of layoffs. His reasoning? It’ll hurt his reelection chances in

Urgent: Obama’s Angry Race Speech Surfaces

obama fraud

A new video has emerged today revealing what many have claimed all along: Obama is an angry racist who wants to use the redistribution of wealth to fix problems from “300 years ago”. Racial lines are drawn in the speech, and he’s angry. He also speaks with a strong accent that he has carefully deleted when in front of the public. He also then gives a “shout out” to Reverent Wright — the “Goddamn America” preacher. It’s enough to make
