Socialist Myths vs Capitalism / Politics / Social Issues

By: Gerard_Jackson

I am forever getting emails from ignorant socialists accusing capitalism of all manner of heinous crimes. Clearly the socialist view of economic history is deeply rooted in Western society, a view based on facts that turn out to be nothing but socialist myths derived from political prejudices deeply hostile to the classical liberal order. This, I believe, accounts for the staggering ignorance of leftwing critics. The contents of one particularly stupid email immediately brought to mind an especially bigoted anti-capitalist tirade by Bryan Patterson that he wrote some years ago.

Investment Politics of 2008: Protect Your Wallet / Politics / US Politics

By: Steve_Selengut

The parade of promises is marching down Main Street. For too many months to come, politicians of all descriptions, parties, and ideologies will be courting our votes... they have the cure for all that is wrong in the world, they tell us. With crystal clear hindsight, every candidate criticizes the decisions of every incumbent, from the Town Council of Podunk to The Presidency itself. You've heard it all before; it never changes. But we all know that little will be accomplished. Ten years from now, we'll be grumbling about the same things that bothered us ten years ago! But we listen to (and sometimes even believe) the same garbage, campaign after campaign. Aren't you tired of this cycle of frustration? If you thought you could make a difference, would you try?

Hillary Clinton Wins! Barack Obama Loses , Pollsters Lose! / Politics / US Politics

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Contrary to ALL of the polls and political pundits, Hilary Clinton Beat Barack Obama into second place by a healthy distance of 4%+ in the New Hampshire Democratic Primary.

Hours before the poll, Hilary Clinton had literally shed a tear in the face of impeding defeat, which is now being used by political pundits as the moment that the polls turned in her favour. However at the time no one indicated that the sign of weakness could be construed as positive for the Clinton campaign.

How could the pollsters get it so wrong ?

George Bush in Danger While on Middle East Tour? / Politics / Middle East

By: Ian_Brockwell

George Bush in Danger While on Middle East Tour? The recent “Al Qaeda” video, which was posted just days before George Bush's trip to the Middle East, urges fighters to meet the President with bombs.

U.S.-born Adam Gadahn, who appears on the almost one hour long video, was quoted as saying in Arabic “Now we direct an urgent call to our militant brothers in Muslim Palestine and the Arab peninsula .. to be ready to receive the Crusader slayer Bush in his visit to Muslim Palestine and the Arab peninsula in the beginning of January and to receive him not with flowers or clapping but with bombs and booby-trapped vehicles”

IOWA Votes For Change, Barack Obama Wins but Ron Paul Rejected / Politics / US Politics

By: Joel_S_Hirschhorn

Ron Paul's obnoxious supporters like more traditional political activists can spin and delude themselves about election results. But the Iowa caucus results could not be clearer: The vast national desire for political change is manifesting itself through support for both Democratic and Republican change-candidates. Despite Paul being flush with money and having a large number of workers in Iowa, he was solidly rejected as the leading change agent.

NHS Patients Told to Treat Themselves - Gordon Browns New Idea for 2008

Gordon Browns big new idea for the NHS for 2008 is for patients to apparently diagnose and treat themselves. This is being packaged up in the form of a constitution for the NHS but the aim is that after having failed to meet the nations health needs despite a tripling in the annual NHS budget. The goal now is to reduce patients reliance on the NHS with patients having to increasingly pay for treatment privately.

Problems with Maverick Ron Paul's Policies / Politics / US Politics

By: Joel_S_Hirschhorn

It's as if a whole lot of people have caught a virus that I have escaped. People that I thought had correctly rejected the current corrupt two-party controlled political system have flocked to Paul. So I went back and re-read most of his published columns and examined in detail his voting record. I can understand why such a maverick politician is so attractive to people fed up with the current system. But I consistently have seen so many problems with Paul that I cannot support his candidacy and I still maintain that he never stood a chance of getting the Republican nomination.

Third of GP's Incompetent at Referring Breast Cancer Patients / Politics / NHS

By: N_Walayat

A shocking report by the research group "Breakthrough Breast Cancer" reveals that as many as a third of GP's are failing to refer patients with suspected breast cancer as urgent cases. Which is one of the core reasons why Britain lags behind most of Europe in terms of cancer deaths. Even behind many poorer eastern european countries that spend less than 1/3rd the amount the UK spends on the National health Service.GP's failure to properly understand the procedures for urgent referral of suspected breast cancer cases costs thousands of lives every year.

US Presidential Elections are a Sham! / Politics / US Politics

By: Mike_Whitney

Every four years the country is swept up in the pomp and pageantry of presidential elections. And every four years loyal Americans flock to the voting booths to select the candidate of their choice. Elections--we are told---are supposed to be the true expression of democratic government. But they aren't. They're a sham and most people know it. The balloting creates the illusion of choice where there is none. It's become a meaningless ritual that has nothing to do with representative government.

US 2008 Presidential Election: Important Concepts About Monetary Policy and History / Politics / US Politics

By: Richard_C_Cook

The 2008 presidential election campaign starts in earnest on January 3 with the Iowa caucuses, followed a few days later by the New Hampshire primary. While all of the Republican candidates except Ron Paul have totally ignored economic issues, the Democrats are all sounding more “populist” than at any time since the Great Depression. Nevertheless, with the exception of Dennis Kucinich, they all swallow in its totality the debt-based monetary system overseen by the Federal Reserve which is at the root of the escalating crisis.

Putin's Rebuilt Russia Prepares for US Missile Defense Flash point 2008 / Politics / Russia

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's been a lot of hard work, but Russian President Vladimir Putin has finally achieved his goal. He's cleaned up the mess left behind by Yeltsin, put together a strong and thriving economy, and restored Russia to a place of honor among the community of nations. His legacy has already been written. He's the man who rebuilt Russia. The last thing he wants now, is a pointless confrontation with the United States. But how can it be avoided? He understands Washington's long-range plans for Russia and he is taking necessary steps to preempt them. He is familiar with the heavyweights of US foreign policy, like Zbigniew Brzezinski, and has undoubtedly read his master-plan for Central Asia, “The Grand Chessboard”. Brzezinski's recent article in Foreign Affairs, (A publication of the Council on Foreign Relations) “A Geostrategy for Eurasia” summarizes his views on America's future involvement in the region:

Ron Paul on the Importance of Fiscal Responsibility in US Government / Politics / US Politics

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

As the year draws to a close, the battle over spending in Washington is heating up.  The Democrats want to expand government healthcare, while the President has vetoed the second attempt to expand SCHIP.  

The latest version of the State Children's Health Insurance Program would have expanded the entitlement program and raised taxes, just as the earlier version did and the President showed fiscal restraint with his veto.

The latest National Intelligence Estimate has been greeted by a mixture of relief and alarm. As I have been saying all along, Iran indeed poses no quantifiable imminent nuclear threat to us or her neighbors. It is with much alarm, however, that we see the administration continue to ratchet up the war rhetoric as if nothing has changed.
