Why Mitt Romney Lost the U.S. Presidential Election / Politics / US Presidential Election 2012

By: Ian_Fletcher

If Romney had won, I'd be saying it was because Americans have a long, long history of booting incumbents who preside over high unemployment and economic weakness.

This much is true. In fact, I think Romney counted on it all too much. In the end, his case against Obama came down to “Your economy sucks.”

Lunacy of FEMA Hurricane Insurance Subsidy / Politics / US Politics

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the most ludicrous fantasies of the self-indulgent is that a property owner has an entitlement of subsidized government flood insurance. The inherent risk of building along the ocean shoreline is self-evident. The benefits that enhance the pleasure of proximity to the seaside seem unending. However, when the forces of nature thrust her fury and a wall of water inundates pristine dwellings, the first question asked after the storm usually involves rebuilding. The cost of repairs and renovated construction, once paid by private insurance, now normally requires a federal guaranty.

The Lull Before the Civil Unrest Storm / Politics / Social Issues

By: Jack_D_Douglas

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleVast social revolutions and wars are often preceded by periods of giving up on reforms, despairing withdrawal from public life by the best and brightest, and even peacefulness which seems to have become the normal condition in spite of deep conflicts and growing crises beneath the surfaces of public life. Often, earlier periods of intense conflicts and crises have been overcome and resolved, so it comes to look like that is the normal in life. This lulls most people into assuming their worse fears cannot happen, but this leads them to lowering their guards against growing conflicts and crises, so small ones can more easily cascade down into massive ones. If people expected they could become vast wars or revolutions or implosions, they would take more precautions to prevent that. But when lulled in expecting the worst cannot happen, the worst than they could ever imagine often explodes suddenly.

Obama Wins A Second Term: Now What? / Politics / US Politics

By: Ron_Holland

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI'm certainly glad the election is finally over. While I have loved politics my entire life, this presidential election has gone on for over three years, including the GOP primaries, and I've had my fill of meaningless slogans and counter-slogans, lies and counter-lies. I had to quit watching political news the last few weeks, as I thought I would become physically sick if I watched any more establishment political "experts" give their required opinions and propaganda bites.

Ron Paul's U.S. Presidential Election 2012 Lesson: Obeying the Constitution, No Sure Path to Freedom / Politics / US Politics

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJustin O’Connell writes: What is one to deduce from the 2012 Presidential elections? In my opinion, it is that obeying the Constitution is no sure path to freedom, and that voting is a real waste of time. The campaign of Ron Paul was by far one of the most popular campaigns in recent memory. It made the third party runs of Ross Perot (18% of the vote in 1992; 8.4% of vote in 1996) and Ralph Nader (.38% of the vote in 2004) appear tiny. Nobody in recent memory has captured the heart of a lost-but-looking-USA quite as much as has Paul.

“TOP SECRET” ECB Debt Crisis Report / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: David_Hague

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDear reader, by now you will have read at least 1000 articles discussing the debt crisis and/or the fiscal cliff. Like me, you have probably concluded that both the debt crisis and the fiscal cliff will land badly with severe consequences to the global economy.  Let us dispense with any more debate about our predicament. Collectively, central governments owe 50 trillion dollars. It will never be repaid; there will be a cascade of defaults by sovereign nations. The defaults will cause chaos in the global banking system. As well, the sovereign defaults will trigger dramatic social and economic upheaval on an epic scale.   There will be no capital available for the private sector for a very long time.  To argue against these outcomes is nonsense. Only an idiot or a Nobel Prize winning economist would postulate that other outcomes are possible.

Eurozone Civil War: It's North vs. South, Washington to the Rescue? / Politics / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJ.Luis Martìn writes: Although the eurozone crisis did not make it into the US presidential debate on foreign policy in October, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner did remark earlier in the month: "We are very worried about the risk of collapse in Europe." Indeed, he should be, for a collapse of the euro would not only send shockwaves through the already fragile world economy, but would also undermine America's own escape strategy of currency debasement. This makes preservation of the status-quo in Europe an essential part of the United States' plan to avert its so-called fiscal cliff - even if it means that Washington has to increase its exposure to the faltering economies across the pond.

U.S. Presidential Election, Which Slave Master Do You Want? / Politics / US Politics

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"People demand freedom of speech as a compensation for the freedom of thought which they seldom use." ~ Søren Kierkegaard

Ah, election season! If there is any one time that guarantees a radical libertarian a barrel of laughs, it is the periodic selection of slave masters, masquerading as a key component of freedom. For the record, selecting which arrogant, well-connected megalomaniac will: kill foreigners (supposedly) on your behalf; redistribute your money to whomever he pleases ostensibly on behalf of helping those who cannot help themselves; and, maintain the cash cow that fictitious property – otherwise known as intellectual property – has provided for firms like Microsoft and Apple, all via the barrel of a gun, is not a practice endemic to freedom. It is exactly the opposite.

American's Voting for the Next Thief-in-Chief / Politics / US Presidential Election 2012

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMichael Scheuer writes: Having listened to a campaign in which Governor Romney explained how he would fix the U.S. economy and carry a big stick around the world, and President Obama continually blame George W. Bush for all our economic problems and try to depict Romney as the evil-millionaire Mr. Potter from Frank Capra’s, It’s a Wonderful Life, voters can take their pick on Tuesday. But when doing so they must realize that no matter who wins, the next president’s biggest problem will be fighting wars overseas with a war weary populace and an undermanned and ill-equipped military. And no matter who is elected, the new president will only have himself and his interventionist party to blame.

How the State Subverts Responsibility / Politics / US Politics

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article[The following post is by Menno Troyer, TDV Subscriber and a pioneer of the Free State Project] : One of the most destructive influences of "the State" upon society, is the way it subverts responsibility.

In order to understand the nature of this subversion, one has to understand what "the State" really is, and the irrational paradigm in the minds of its subjects which its agents rely upon to sustain their diabolical power to rule over others without individual consent.

Hurricane Sandy, the Economics of Disaster / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Hurricane Sandy was one of the worst natural disasters the east coast has ever seen. Clean-up and recovery will take months, if not years and estimates run in the tens of billions of dollars. Parts of New York and New Jersey will never be the same. Entire seashore communities have been wiped out, but the determination to rebuild has been lauded as courageous and admirable. Yet as with all natural disasters, Sandy raises uncomfortable questions about the extent to which taxpayers should fund the cleanup and the extent to which government programs create moral hazards.

Police and Crime Commissioners, Putting Corrupt Politicians in Charge of Law and Order / Politics / UK Politics

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week saw the latest in a long list of corrupt politicians being caught with their hands in the cookie jar, another MP fiddling his expenses by presenting fraudulent invoices for reimbursement, who's punishment is apparently just a 12month ban from the House of Commons, with far more evading exposure than make it into the mainstream press headlines. All of this is taking place in the run up to the handing over responsibility for holding England and Wales police forces to account to some 41 politicians that will follow a rubber stamping exercise along party lines that masquerades as an Election on November 15th, that will be lucky to secure a turnout of even 20% (which idiot picked picked the middle of November for an election?) which is set against 65% that turned out for the last general election.

Bludgeon Constitution Replaced By Fiat Edicts / Politics / US Politics

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe rule of law is an empty memory of the past. The powers that rule are globalists that control governments and use their media outlets to write the first version of history. They pull the strings of the intelligence agencies that function as over throwers of non-compliant regimes. Constitutional restrictions that limit impulsive or capricious dictates once protected citizens. With the utter eradication of separations of power and the "Federalist", form of distinct roles and authority of independent States, the core legitimacy of the United States vanished.

Chinese Metaphysics Meet Mayan End of the World Apocalypse / Politics / Social Issues

By: DK_Matai

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTransitioning from the 'Lucky' Water Dragon to the 'Wise' Snake -- 2012 to 2013 -- A Chinese Perspective

Speaking to a senior Chinese delegation recently about Hurricane Sandy's ongoing impact on the Eastern Seaboard of the United States including New York and New Jersey, we were struck by the remark that water on earth and floods are not entirely inconsistent with 2012, the year of the "Water Dragon" according to Chinese metaphysics. In parallel, as we approach the end of the year 2012, believers and sceptics alike are studying the Mayan calendar and Eschatology: the branch of theology concerned with final events or the end of the world. As a myriad of experts and self-styled prophets announce the impending end of the world on December 21st, 2012, the day that marks the winter solstice, we wondered what the Chinese delegation might have to say on this subject.

Were Ancient Spartan's the First Socialists? / Politics / Social Issues

By: MISES

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlexander Gray: At what point a history of socialism should begin is a question which might give occasion to high argument. There are some who hold that we merely becloud our judgment if we allow ourselves to speak of socialism before the middle of the 18th century, or perhaps even somewhat later. On this view socialism is essentially a manifestation of the proletarian spirit; or, if socialism is not necessarily proletarian in character and origin, it at least postulates a society which tends to be comprehensive in its membership. Accordingly, it is suggested that a society which assumes for its efficient working the existence of a slave population, denied all rights, may at times speak a language suggestive of socialism, but it can know nothing of socialism as that word has been understood in the 19th and 20th centuries. The existence of a serf or slave population may in certain respects add a complication to life; but in other directions it quite obviously enormously simplifies the social and political problems of existence, as these are presented to that section of the population who are not slaves. On this view, a history of socialism should probably begin among these first ripples and disturbances which presaged the deluge of the French Revolution.

State Budget Deficits Grow as Millions of People Continue to Evade Taxes / Politics / Taxes

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: One of the common themes around the world is the growing level of government debt due to high budget deficits. Budget deficits occur when spending is greater than revenue. Taxes are the main source of revenue for governments; taxes decrease with a slow economy. A slow economy means fewer employees, which means less revenue from income taxes and lower taxes on goods purchased. This increases budget deficits, which then adds to the rising total of the government debt.
