What is Wrong With Gary Johnson’s Libertarian Economics

Presidential candidate Gary Johnson holds fairly typical Libertarian economic positions. Most of these positions are unworkable in a modern economy.

The Budget Man Cometh

Ryan’s budget reminds me of groundhog day, every budget looks the same, with a different date, regardless of the fact that the President will never sign it and the people dont want it.

Suicide By Government

The sequester will be upon us in four days, and Congress is whiling away its time on pettiness and ad hominem attacks instead of tackling the issue.

The Incredible Growing Government

The Republican response to the State of the Union was tepid at best, insipid at worst, either way, it was irrelevant to the problems facing the nation.

Suffocate the Middle Class

Conservatives are playing the austerity song once more, using the sequester and debt ceiling to hold the country to ransom. Lets hope they fail.

How the Leopard Changed its Spots

Republicans want to change their message to appeal to more voters. What they fail to understand is that you cannot repackage a bad message.

What About the People

Conservatives care very little for the Middle Class or the poor. They far prefer to cosy up to the wealthy and powerful corporations.

Government Spending is the Solution

Austerity measures in Europe have succeeded only in creating unemployment of 11.6%. Republicans in Congress want the same in the United States. It would be disastrous.

Republican Attacks On The Vulnerable

Once more into the breach, the conservative onslaught against the vulnerable, the weak, continues, by threatening to take away essential social programs. Conservative values: honored more in the breach than in the observance.

Rise of the American Aristocracy

The increasing disconnect between the wealthy and the poor is only exacerbated by the rising dissent in Congress, the fiscal cliff and the debt ceiling debacles. It is time to come together and do the right thing.
