One of our greatest presidents, James K. Polk, proved that one can accomplish an ambitious but limited agenda in a single term if one is willing to work hard enough. Unfortunately, he literally worked himself to death.

Stossel endorses the Monroe Doctrine. Too bad most politicians don't.

Our greatest danger comes not from Syria or any other country, but from the fools and liars we elect to leadership positions in both parties.

Wealth building is not difficult. It just takes a lot of time and self-discipline. There is no legitimate excuse for remaining poor. I and most of my friends were relatively poor as youngsters, but none of us are poor now.

A smaller, constitutional federal government will not be achieved by cosmetic surgery, but only by wholesale amputation of departments and programs. I would start by abolishing the Dept of Education and H.U.D. Rejecting phony disability claims (e.g., many claims of mental illness) would save a ton of money. Subsidies of companies and individuals should be slashed. Loan guarantees for private enterprises is unwarranted. The lists of fraud, waste, and folly is almost endless.
