04/07/2011 | Reading Paul Ryan's budget

I'm reading Paul Ryan's budget proposal right now and it's a work of art!  I'm excited that somebody in govermnet finally got it right.  The nicest thing about Ryan's proposal is that it puts us on a path to structural balanced budgets without counting on the inevitable increase in revenue from reduced marginal tax rates.  This means that Ryan's budget is the most pessimistic view of his own plan.

04/04/2011 | What I believe
  • I believe in a flat 18.5% income tax with a generous standard deduction.
  • I believe Social Security should either be held to the same liquidity standards as a private retirement fund or it should be dismantled.
  • I believe that the idea of government programs that are not subject to budgetary constraint (Medicare & Medicaid) is as outdated as it is insane.
  • I do not believe in taxes on savings and investment, mortgage and other 'incentive' tax deductions, government stimulus through deficit spending, or collectivist plans for health-care reform.
  • I believe that a free market is the best expression of a free and democratic society, that it is moral, and that it brings out the best in all of us. I do not trust government intervention because I believe that it tends to put the priorities of the few ahead of the priorities of the rest. The role of government is to protect individual liberty, not to inflict the will of the few on the backs of the many.
