Thanks to the GOP, Single Payer May Be our Best Hope for Controlling Health Care Costs

If you have been paying attention to the Obamacare debacle, it would seem that impotent Republicans have backed us into a corner with their failure to lead on the high cost of medical care. Note that I didn’t write the “high cost of insurance”. Health Insurance is simply a reflection of the high cost of […]

TO SOLVE A PROBLEM SOCIETY MUST FIRST FACE IT

Entitlement programs such as Social Security, Medicare are driven by demographics and longevity factors, which we can do little about. All those babies born after WW II are now reaching retirement age. Some 10,000 turn 65 each day and this continues for the next 16-17 years. Means testing and significant structural changes to the programs […]

SINGLE PAYER IS COMING—WE’VE OURSELVES TO BLAME

Promises to repeal and replace the A.C.A ( ObamaCare) is clearly in trouble and whatever emerges from this mess will be a far cry from the solemn pledges Republicans have made for the last 8 years.

What Should be a libertarian Response to the Pipeline Issue?

August 25, 2017

I was pondering the pipeline issue from a libertarian perspective. Apparently, there are two views on this question and it seems driven more by so-called global warming/anti-fracking agitation and concern for disturbing of pristine conditions.  From the Southern Environmental Law Center: Rivers, streams and forests of the central Appalachian Mountains are in the crosshairs of […]

A Second New Birth – perfecting our union as one people by Guest Blogger Gil Berger

August 25, 2017

A Second New Birth – perfecting our union as one people. It was the intent of our Nation’s Founders in the years following the American Colonial Revolution to “form” a more “perfect union.” Although the union at the time of its first birth was not perfect, the establishment of a constitutional, democratic-republic was a great […]

Confederate Statues and Carvings are Works of Art

August 23, 2017

I don’t think art is elite or mysterious. I don’t think anybody can separate art from politics. The intention to separate art from politics is itself a very political intention. – Ai Weiwei, Chinese artist. Art can take many forms, sizes and shapes and comes in the form of sound, painting, sculptures, the written word, […]

I am now on the Virginia State Board for OAI – Our American Initiative – the issue advocacy group established by former NM Governor Gary Johnson.  You do not have to be a Libertarian Party member to join or get involved and in fact OAI can only advocate or oppose issues – not candidates.  However, […]

MISPLACED COMPASSION & EMPATHETIC ENABLERS YIELDS WHAT WE ARE WATCHING

August 15, 2017

When one examines the photographs of the protestors in Charlottesville and last night’s protests in Richmond it just might pay to ask the question—who are these aggrieved young people taking to the streets for reasons that seem somewhat removed from anything that someone so young could have even possibly experienced yet ?

Democrat Northam May Do More to Unite Virginia Republicans than RPV’s Whitbeck Ever Will

July 24, 2017

The Republican Party is a mess in Virginia. As Republicans, we have always been good at finding those things that divide us, magnifying those divisions, and sitting around in a circular firing squad while weak and unqualified Democrats clean our clocks on election day. Will Ralph Northam be the next clueless Democrat to sneak into […]

Barton Hinkle article in both the Times-Dispatch and here at Reason.  Hinkle suggests that Hyra could have a huge impact on the race. Still, Hyra is performing […]
