Adding more government employees is a drain on the economy, not a measure of economic growth. Incredibly, there are more than 102 million people who are either unemployed or are no longer looking for work.

Bernie's Political Jujitsu Loses Leverage

Government Can’t Help, It Can Only Hurt

Three recent stories regarding three government agencies - the IRS, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) - show why we should oppose big government for practical, as well as philosophical, reasons.

Married 25 Years – And Loving It!

For the sake of my son Gideon (age 12), I strain my brain each week to make this column something zany and irreverent instead of soberly persuasive.
