The Best Argument Against Term Limits The Voters

The idea of limiting the number of terms anyone can serve in Congress has been around for a long time, but recently I have heard it proposed as a solution to gridlock in Washington. It would almost certainly have exactly the opposite effect, but I've also got other reasons to be against term limits.

Obamacare’s Economically Destructive Welfare Expansion

The Supreme Court struck down Obamacare's mandatory Medicaid expansion as an unconstitutional commandeering of the states, setting off bruising battles over the issue in state capitals. No place has been more brutal than Maine, where a liberal attack group actually sent out a mail piece criticizing Dale Crafts, a wheelchair-bound state legislator, because he "failed to stand up to Gov. LePaige."

Welcome to the Real World

And now, an open letter to all you new grads. Congratulations. Good job. Way to go. Bet you thought this day would never come. And if memory serves, it probably almost didn't. Anyhow, welcome to the real world. And please be aware that we use that term very loosely.

Independent’s Eye

There's an old joke about a skunk who lifts his tail and, as bystanders hold their noses, says, "So do you!" Once again, Bush-era Republican maven Karl Rove has lifted his tail and altered the (ahem) atmospherics in America's political room -- while simultaneously conducting a new and old media symphony as if he were a world-famous maestro.

A Memorial Day message: Time to fix the VA

While many view Memorial Day as the official start of summer vacation, let's not forget to pause and remember the men and women who "gave the last full measure of devotion" serving our nation. It is a day to remember those who died defending the freedoms we hold dear and acknowledge the debt of gratitude we owe to our service members and their families.

Tax Reform Useless Without Spending Reform

Recently, Republican leaders in Congress unveiled a "tax reform" plan that they claimed would provide the American people with a simpler, fairer, and more efficient tax system. While this plan does lower some tax rates and contains some other changes that may make next April a little less painful for Americans, there is little in it to excite supporters of liberty.
