A Lesson in Free-Market Economics, Medical-Style

What happens to prices when you kick both the government and insurance companies out of the medical market? Are doctors and hospitals then free to gouge patients even more deeply than they would otherwise?

The answer might surprise you, but if you know the power of the free market, it shouldn't.

This video should be a lesson in economics that everyone, and I mean everyone, should watch. In the impending implementation of ObamaCare, you can get a sense here of how much more badly any increased government interference in the medical market will mess things up.

An Urgent Conversation with Jay Richards on Economics

With only days to the election some are in desperate need of a good primer on basic economics, since most schools no longer teach it in the most classical sense, leaving our population to flounder in a pool of bad economic ideas and leadership.

This podcast (the one listed as "Money, Greed and God," in case this link goes whacky) from Frank Turek's "Cross Examined" radio program contains a commercial-free conversation with the Discovery Institute's Jay Richards about capitalism and socialism, what the two systems are, which is better, and why.

You, and everyone you know, needs to listen to this immediately. Send the link to all of your friends, especially fiscal liberals who think "just a little socialism" is what our country needs to set things right.

I'm hoping some lights will begin to illumine some long-dark attics and libraries within the minds of potential voters who need to hear this.

Conservatism Is Calling...

As the election looms in just 5 days, please remember what the president campaigned for just 4 short years ago, and ponder exactly how many of his promises he kept.

This devastating video makes the conservative case simply, fearlessly. You will find no racism here. No sexism. No discrimination of any kind, except distinguishing between those who choose to be victors, or victims. If you have an open mind you will watch to the end, then make your choice.
