In a civilized society, should anyone or any government ever force anyone to do anything against his or her will as long as that person does not infringe upon the life, liberty, or property of another?

Finally, some good news!

As you can read here, the bloated public sector is selling its stuff! The more roads, buildings, zoos, libraries, etc. that we can get out of the hands of bureaucrats into the hands of entrepreneurs, the better!

After all, who does a better job - bureaucrats, who have not invested a dime, or entreprenuers, who have their own money at risk?

Obamacare doesn't work in Taxachusetts

The health care plan enacted into law earlier this year, which will take full effect in a little over three years, will be a disaster. It doesn't work in Massachusetts, and it won't work for the entire nation. This article explains in all.

China vs. U.S. - eventually it will happen

As it was in the schoolyard, so it will be globally. Eventually, the two big kids on the block go toe to toe to see who's top dog. China's navy and armed forces, in reaction to our global presence, have been growing steadily. As you can read in this article, the first testing ground is the South China Sea.

Sadly, some 10 to 15 years from now, the U.S. will launch on China. The reasons? Well, we're broke, and we'll be in worse shape then. And what better way to distract us from that drafty bridge we're living under or that overcrowded tent city than to attack the "bad guys."

The question is: Will you still be here in the the empire, or by then will you be safely tucked away off the grid?

Amazingly, Pax Americana is melting right before our eyes, just like Pax Romana.

America is broke and the future is dark

If you're thinking of staying here in the empire, you better be planning to make some serious money. If you don't have a plan to make some serious money, then your best bet is to find some small place on the globe that's off the grid and doesn't have the empire's problems.

Here's a serious and sobering article that should have you in the planning stage. It's going to end badly - that's why my family and I are getting out soon.

Social Security is broke

As many Austrians have been warning for quite some time, Social Security is unsustainable, especially with a severe permanent recession and the aging baby boom population. Fourteen years from now, workers will really be paying through the nose. As you can see in this article from, the tipping point has been reached. More government failure.
