173 Reasons to Throw the Bums out of Congress

173 Reasons to Throw the Bums out of Congress

By David Freedman I want you to think about the number 906. You might wonder why I am asking you to think about this particular number. No, it is not some number game derived from a computer. Rather it was the number of laws enacted by the 80th Congress of the United States during its [...]

It’s Time For “We The People” To Take Our Tax Code Back

It’s Time For “We The People” To Take Our Tax Code Back

  By David Freedman After a summer of some of the most contentious political discussion, I find myself baffled by both parties’ failure to grasp the situation that has befallen America and leads me to believe that nothing will really change after the election no matter who wins in November. If Obama wins, he will [...]

It’s Time To Send Out The Clowns

By DAVID FREEDMAN   Now that Mitt Romney has designated Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate, let the fun begin!

What We’re Seeing is Smoke and Mirrors

What We’re Seeing is Smoke and Mirrors

By David M. Freedman I am frustrated watching all of the noise over President Obama’s embracing of Gay marriage. In the first hours after the announcement, the President was able to raise $15 million. It is a testament to our system of values that this issue should be such a money generator for a candidate.
