The FDA recently extended the public comment period for certain aspects of the Food Safety Modernization Act, a law which is an unconstitutional federal assault on food freedom and agriculture.

Local chambers of commerce are some of the most important organizations within the private sector, providing immeasurable services to their business members. Their days may be numbered as ObamaCare and the Big Government propaganda machine forces people into healthcare exchanges, driving them away from insurance programs offered by chambers.

ObamaCare will ultimately transform nursing homes from places where people go to be taken care of and live, to places where they go to be neglected and die.

Environmentalists have set their sights on soft plastic lures, with the intention of banning their use.

Recently, more than 570 veterans in upstate New York received some dire news that could be classified as tragic irony: After they have survived wars and occupations overseas, the very health system that was meant to protect them at home — the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) — could ultimately end up being the very thing that kills them.

The NRA's Inconsistent Message of Liberty

Sometimes the best friends of the liberty movement are its worst enemies.

Today is a dark day for U.S. manufacturing as the storied corporation Hostess Brands Inc. announced that it was closing shop and liquidating, selling off its brands, facilities, and equipment. It is a sad ending to a company that had been in operation since 1930 and had weathered the Great Depression and the Great Recession. The closing will bring an end to a staggering 18,500 jobs.

Farmers Beware Obama's Second Term

Obama's Chinese Tendencies

In campaign speeches September 17 in the swing state of Ohio, President Obama railed against imported automotive components that are illegally subsidized by the Chinese government. 

Constitutionalists should find fault with Obama’s crusade du jour. His case against China is hypocritical, because his administration is guilty of the very thing he accuses China of (but on an even greater scale). He is after all, the president who claims he saved General Motors. Under his watch, the federal government contributed $76 billion to GM and Chrysler. Doubtless those are government subsidies, and the original total was 76 times greater than the amount Obama claims China kicked in to their automotive industry. 

Obama’s subsidization of the American auto industry — immoral, illogical, and illegal — is just one piece of the gigantic puzzle that shows his non-Americanist ways. He has Chinese-like tendencies, founded upon the preachings of the Communist Manifesto.

Federal Entitlements: Living Large in Poverty

Because of federal entitlements, those who are theoretically living in poverty actually have a standard of living comparable to and, in some cases, better than, the working class who are forced into paying their way.
