Free Market: Competition Needs To Be Introduced To Our Schools At All Levels

August 14, 2010 Leave a comment

No mater what career one chooses some level of education is needed to achieve a skillset that makes one more marketable to potential employers. If the free market system is to be understood one would of course have to learn about it somewhere along the way though the education system. The problem here is that an education system that is inefficient because it does not fallow the free market system is not a good source to learn about the free market system. To understand this you first have to understand that the teachers union does not have your child’s best interest in mind. The teachers union’s soul purpose is to represent teachers and its own interests. Teachers in the union love to bring up the fact that they make less then teachers in privet schools as a reason why they should get more money but the fact is teachers in a privet school have to perform to keep their jobs.  Read More

Education Is Needed To Thrive In a Free Market

August 13, 2010 1 comment

Education is very important when it comes to the free market. Those with an education have an edge when it comes to success or failure in a free market system. Companies look for those who have at the very least a high school diploma or a GED. Graduating from a College or a trade school will increase ones chances to start out at an even higher wage than someone who has only high school or a GED on their resume. This is because ones skill set is what makes them attractive to potential employers. The more experience and knowledge someone has in a particular field that a company is looking for the more valuable that person is to the company. Because a person has or accedes the level of knowledge the potential employer is looking for the more money that individual can get for their services. Read More

The Free Market and Welfare Are Like Oil and Water

August 12, 2010 Leave a comment

Welfare is a huge reason why the free market does not really exist anymore. Many families stay on welfare for generations simply because they can. They do not understand why they should work when they can simply get free money from the government. To be honest I cannot think of a reason why someone should pass up free money either if work would simply keep them at the same level financially. The only way to get those on welfare who feel that way would be to require able bodied people to work or prepare for work at least 30 hours a week in order to receive welfare. The problem this poses to a free market system is that companies have to increase their starting wage to make a job look like a better option than just sitting back and collecting a free check from the government.

Free Market: Something None of Us Have Experienced

August 11, 2010 Leave a comment

For those who continue to say that the free market failed us the rest of us have to understand that they do not know what a free market is. In fact none of us have ever experienced a free market system in our life time. With subsidy’s given to farmers prices are set artificially rather then by a free market system. When companies like GM fail because of bad decisions made by management and bad union contracts a free market system would let them fail not bail them out with tax payer money. Failure is not a bad thing and is the key component to success. A company that fails shows others what should not be done and allows other companies to step up and take their place. There is something called “bankruptcy” that can be used by a company like GM to start over and leave its bad polices and contracts behind. Read More

Fall From Grace

August 1, 2010 Leave a comment

Look to the history of the world and you will see the most successful governments ever created were those that were based on the “Rule of Law”.  Out of those governments that were ruled by law those who recognized Natural Law were even greater yet.  Governments have fallen time and time again when the morals of the people became corrupted.  The best guide ever written on the subject of morals is the Bible.  The Bible was written over hundreds of years by different men yet the message still remains the same.  Gods laws are the foundation of all good morals and the need for good morals in a society is evident when you see the governments that recognized Gods laws in their own legal system were by far the most successful.

To have a strong government it must be supported by the people who are ruled by that government.  The happier the people are under a government the stronger that government is.  If the people are to be happy the government must recognize the rights that people are given by their creator.  The right of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are the foundation of any government that wishes to have its people support it wholeheartedly.   The unalienable rights granted by the creator are the rights all men must be given to ensure their happiness.  By recognizing these rights not just for a few but for all a government recognizes that all men are created equal and enforces its laws against all who fall under them equally.

When it is recognized that all men are created equal it must also be understood that if a body is to govern the people the people must be the ones who govern.  Because all men are created equal all people who fall under this form of government must have the right to choose those who will govern them.  Those who are to govern must come from the people and voted into office by the people.  These  unalienable Rights that must be protected by the “Rule of Law” come from the Bible and because they come from the Bible religion must be cultivated for any society to survive.  Once those who would wish to take away these rights can only do so by first perverting religion and then dissolving it.

No one who believes in natural law by way of their religion will sit by and let their unalienable rights be taken from them.  That is unless religion is perverted over time and the people begin to lose site of their moral values.  People who know something is wrong will simply find a way to legalize it in the laws they write themselves in an attempt to clear their concuss when they commit the act they know is truly wrong.  Over time these people will chip away at the moral foundation of a society until the foundation becomes week and can stand no longer.  Once the foundation falls they will attempt to build their own foundations not based on natural law but on what they believe the laws of nature should be.

When this has happened to empires of the past they quickly fell and simply became footnotes in history.  As sure as the morals in the Bible will always be those that good men strive to achieve in their own life there will always be those who believe they can do it better.  As time has gone by and advancements have come in every subject the Bible has stood the test of time.  As governments come and go the Bible is still here and shows the path to not only salvation but the laws that all good governments should be based on.  Many intellectuals who have written papers and books have declared their philosophy as the best blueprint for a government but none of their works has ever produced a government more successful than one based on the principles one can find in the Bible.

To move away from the principles found in the Bible is to move the government towards its own demise.  The only way to move away from these principles without an uprising is to pervert the message and slowly move the people away from their own salvation.  The morals of the people must be corrupted more and more each generation.  Once morals have all but disappeared in a people those who would take power must replace Gods Law with their own law and their own set of morals.  When this is complete the government’s fate is set and its fall will soon fallow.

Why The Tea Party is Not Just About Taxes Anymore

July 28, 2010 Leave a comment

By Joseph Jones AChatterer.com

Progressives need the TEA party to only be about taxes because that would play right into their plans. If you read “You Don’t Need A Weatherman To Know Which Way The Wind Blows” you will see this. One of the things they are counting on is that people protest higher taxes and blame it on our capitalistic society rather than “Big Government”. If we were to simply use the Tea Party as a protest against high taxes we leave the door open for progressives to try to hijack the movement for their own political gain. The Tea Party has added pro small government sentiment to its movement so it is known that they do not believe Big Government can fix the problem. They have done this because Big Government is the problem and a move to a small government is needed to reach our ultimate goal of less taxes.

If you only let people know what you want fixed you are leaving it up to others to tell you how to solve the problem. Tea Party members are not merely complainers we are problem solvers. We will protest higher taxes and then we will come up with ways to resolve the problem. To simply say taxes are to high and not address the underlying issues would be useless. This is why it looks like Tea Party members are taking on more issues than it originally set out to take on. In truth all of the issues we are taking on are the direct or indirect causes of the underlying issue of high taxes. If progressives cut taxes in half but borrowed money to support their unsustainable social programs and government agencies this would technically make someone only protesting higher taxes happy. But Tea Party members understand that by doing that we go further into debt and get closer to bankrupting our country. Tea Party members want taxes lowered responsibly and because of their love of country they work together to find ways to do this without destroying it.

Simply protesting something without presenting a blueprint to achieve your ultimate goal allows others to hijack your cause. We want change but not the change the progressives have presented. The change the Tea Party is looking for is not an empty change where politicians can fill in the blanks. We are standing up to Big Government and letting it be known what kind of change we want and how the change can be obtained. We are supporting candidates who support small government and lower taxes. We are educating ourselves on the problems our country is facing and targeting the cause of these problems. A politician can still lie to our faces but now we will hold them accountable for their lies.

Progress is out of control and unable to deliver

No not the unmanned spacecraft that was supposed to dock with the space station the progress that progressives promised would be the change Americans wanted and needed. They passed a health care bill that nobody wanted and that none of them read. Companies will hold off on hiring anyone who would fall into the new subsidized insurance pool because they would be penalized for doing so. This will make getting a job all the more difficult for those who need jobs the most. Oh, I almost forgot about the fact they are saying now they may have to exclude sick people from the Obama Care high risk pool. I thought making sure that Obama care was supposed to make sure those who needed healthcare could get healthcare.  Read the Full Article
