Importing Big Government Is Even Dumber than Domestic Big Government

We oppose Big Government – because it’s dumb. It’s expensive, oafishly clumsy – and awful with resource and impulse control. Government is just another organism. And just like any other organism – its first instinct is self-preservation. Which is why you see these very many Deep State Borg Bots attacking President Donald Trump in any […]

Key Component of Actually Free Trade: Punishing Bad Actors

We have long roundly ridiculed what has passed for “free trade” in Washington, D.C.

Every additional upward ratchet of the government regulatory winch (it is rarely wound […]

The Impediment to Better Farm Policy? The Farm Lobbies – Here, and in Places Like Japan

We Conservatives rightly and righteously loathe our every five-year renewal of the Farm Bill.  It is a Franklin Delano Roosevelt-New Deal relic, filled to the rim with more protectionism than anyone not getting government checks could possibly stomach. We just in February renewed this anti-free market folly.  So we’re again mired in this mess.  We […]
