If small-government conservatism is to survive, then small-government conservatives had better ensure that they read James Pethokoukis. What he says about the policy and political impact of nationalizing health care is entirely on point and should concentrate the minds of anyone and everyone who wants to keep government within its appointed limits.
Greasing the Skids for Kennedy Care
National Journal reports that Barack Obama has selected CBO Director Peter Orszag to head up the Office of Management and Budget. Orszag is widely respected on both sides of the aisle for his professionalism and his command of budgetary detail. He’s almost certainly more supportive of expanded government than the typical Red State reader, but at least he’s likely to be a straight shooter. His | Read More »
An Obama Lexicon
We have seen in the last two years that Senator Obama has obscured a lot of his beliefs in the interest of getting elected. When he speaks about not punishing successful people in this country, he has a lot of “ummm’s” and “uhh’s”. Yet he is a very eloquent speaker, and in the small amount of speeches he has made in the past which have | Read More »
Why the Democrats need to win.
While watching the Sunday talk shows today, it suddenly became very clear to me why the Democrats need to win this election. First, we are finally winning in Iraq. That is unacceptable. We need to immediately pull the troops out so that we can send them into Darfur, Afghanistan and Pakistan, to rebuild those countries and create Democracies there. We simply chose the wrong war. | Read More »
Universal Child Health Care Fails In Hawaii
Don’t say we didn’t warn you if Obama gets elected and tries the same sort of thing: Hawaii is dropping the only state universal child health care program in the country just seven months after it launched.Gov. Linda Lingle’s administration cited budget shortfalls and other available health care options for eliminating funding for the program. A state official said families were dropping private coverage so | Read More »
A million votes for McCain. Overnight
**100% of the workers in the industrialized midwest, share one reason for voting for Obama over McCain. Taxing health care benefits. I can’t believe America needs to tax health care benefits to survive. John McCain needs to say he listens and responds to the American people. With a resounding voice, American has spoken, and does not want health care benefits taxed. Barack has done the | Read More »
A Common Sense Response to Liberal Rants
First off, the notion that healthcare is a right. But what exactly is a right? This term is used in a very broad manner. I think Walter Williams said it best when he said a right is something that applies universally to all so long as it does not put a burden or consequence on anyone else. For example, a persons’ right to speak, does | Read More »
Socialized Medicine Obama Style – The Canadian Experience
If anyone thinks that a socialized medical plan, such as that in Canada, is the answer to US health care issues, read this: It will shock you. The Ugly Truth About Canadian Health Care Barack Obama, Saul Alinsky student and ardent socialist, will impose this style of health care on us all. McCain’s plan, in contrast, leaves health care choices and decision to us and | Read More »
The Obama Doctrine
Explained here. Scary how accurate Michael Cannon is here.
Stefan Beck Hates To Break It To You . . .
but health care is not a right. Of course, that won’t stop people from calling health care a right–and enacting policies that will bankrupt the country in the process.
Obama-Biden continue to distort and deceive
Obama started the distortion last night: Just one last point I want to make, since Senator McCain talked about providing a $5,000 health credit. Now, what he doesn’t tell you is that he intends to, for the first time in history, tax health benefits. The Biden did what he does best and talk out of his – well, the side of his mouth: John McCain | Read More »
Why Aren’t The Candidates Talking About “The Issues”?
Over the last few weeks, in between devoting untold column-inches and airtime to anything and everything but actual issues, the mainstream media and liberal commentators (to the extent one can distinguish the two) have been complaining – as has the Obama campaign itself – that we have not had a discussion of “the issues” or “the real issues.” To understand why this is happening, we | Read More »
McCain vs Obama: Part IV – Their Promise to America
More rhetoric from the left would have us believe that John McCain has no plan for America. That he has no new ideas. That he will not help, but only hurt America. Let’s compare each candidates plan for America. Part IV – Their Promise to America: McCain: “But let there be no doubt, my friends, we’re going to win this election. And after we’ve won, | Read More »

The health care rankings that I am familiar with that like to list the United States far down on the list often use measurements such as infant mortality. I have seen some writings talking about how this measure can be misleading. I am wondering, though, if an infant born following a failed abortion (the kind Obama thinks should die), would count in our infant mortality | Read More »
