I love what Daniel Hannan says. He is the member of British Parliament, and he speaks with a whole lot of sense. (Note: you can replace the word "Britain" with the "United States," "Prime Minister" with "President" and "Gordon Brown" for "Barack Obama").  Can the government really cure the economy?  Or should the government take from the productive sector to subsidise the unproductive sector?  These are poignent questions when we are all worried about our money.  

Democracy vs Republic

What is the difference between a democracy and a republic?  The Founding Fathers made it a point that the United States not be a democracy! I think that it is ever so important for us to understand why we are a republic and why we should continue to be a republic. Watch the video and ponder it.
