Examples are King David – Israel – (1010 BC –970 B.C.) in ancient times and General Douglas McArthur – Japan – (1945 –1947) in modern times. I started musing about what I would do if I were absolute dictator of the United […]
By Frank Hill Ever wonder how things get done in Washington? Compromises are made; deals are cut and hopefully everyone gets an equal amount of satisfaction out of it. (‘Shared pain’ is also a desirable outcome but no one really ‘likes it’, do they?) There is a fascinating new documentary out on PBS now, (better […]
By Star Parker Keeping government limited is a practical approach to governing that opens the door to growth and prosperity. Why? Consider a fundamental difference between business and government.

The Patriot Post Chronicle The Foundation “We must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt.” –Thomas Jefferson Editorial Exegesis “A major poll just gave Congress a favorability rating of 11% — lowest in history.

By Jim Kouri CPP In 1936, the Social Security Administration established the Social Security number to track worker’s earnings for Social Security benefit purposes.
