About This Blog

Ludwig von Mises (1881-1973) was the greatest economist of my time. His greatest works can be accessed here at no charge.

Mises believed that property, freedom and peace are and should be the hallmarks of a satisfying and prosperous society. I agree. Mises proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the prospect for general and individual prosperity is maximized, indeed, is only possible, if the principle of private property reigns supreme. What's yours is yours. What's mine is mine. When the line between yours and mine is smudged, the door to conflict opens. Without freedom (individual liberty of action) the principle of private property is neutered and the free market, which is the child of property and freedom and the mother of prosperity and satisfaction, cannot exist. Peace is the goal of a prosperous and satisfying society of free individuals, not peace which is purchased by submission to the enemies of property and freedom, but peace which results from the unyielding defense of these principles against all who challenge them.

In this blog I measure American society against the metrics of property, freedom and peace.

John Boehner Calls Ted Cruz "Lucifer"

Looking for a reason to vote for Ted Cruz? I'll give you three of them.

Consider this:
In the same question-and-answer session here, Boehner referred to Ted Cruz as "lucifer." He previously called the Texas senator, who led the failed Republican effort to shut down the government over Obamacare, a “jackass.”
And this:
Boehner, an Ohio Republican who resigned last fall after pressure from conservatives on Capitol Hill, said he voted for his governor, John Kasich, in the Buckeye State primary. Boehner and Kasich served together in the House for a decade.
And this:
Boehner is also friendly with Trump. The business mogul was in the Capitol when Boehner awarded Jack Nicklaus with the congressional gold medal. Both good golfers, Boehner and Trump have hit the links together on several occasions.
You remember John Boehner, the weepy Obama pimp and RINO mouthpiece of the GOP Establishment? The guy who spent a lifetime in Washington, DC betraying conservative ideas and garnering an orange suntan? The guy who now spends his time golfing in Florida and endorsing Paul Ryan for President? The guy who pals around with the Pope?

When the poster boy of the Washington elite considers a Presidential candidate tantamount to the devil, that's my cue to vote for "Lucifer." [Yes, Politico, Lucifer IS a proper name and should be capitalized].
