Government Aggravated Tragedy

by Walter Williams

 

When Thomas Paine said, "(G)overnment, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one." He added that when it's self-inflicted, "(O)ur calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer." The Gulf of Mexico disaster has been made worse because of Washington acts similar to Great Britain's tyrannical acts that caused our founders to rise up in rebellion in 1776. Let's look at it.

 

The Navigation Act was that name given to laws that regulated trade and commerce between Great Britain and its colonies. First enacted in 1651, and often amended, the law stipulated that no merchandise was to be carried to Britain or its colonies except by British ships built and manned by British subjects. The act stifled American manufacturing, increased the cost of goods and gave rise to smuggling and increased resentment against the mother country. The purpose of the mercantilist Navigation Act was to protect and enrich British interests.

 

You say, "Williams, the history lesson is nice but what does it have to do with the Gulf oil disaster?" Foreign companies, with extensive successful experience in oil spill cleanups, have offered their services but have been refused by Washington. Why? A Coast Guard spokesman said that Belgian, Dutch and Norwegian vessels are being barred from the Gulf region because they "do not meet the operational requirements of the Unified Area Command." That's another way to say that the 1920 Jones Act, a protectionist law not unlike Britain's Navigation Act, requires vessels working in U.S. waters be built in the U.S. and be crewed by U.S. workers.

 

James Carafano, researcher at the Heritage Foundation, said, "The unions see it as … protecting jobs. They hate when the Jones Act gets waived, and they pound on politicians when they do that." Carafano asks, "So are we giving in to unions and not doing everything we can, or is there some kind of impediment that we don't know about?" President Obama has the power to waive the Jones Act to allow foreign vessels and crews to bring their expertise to the Gulf cleanup, but he fears angering American labor unions.

The Declaration of Independence 2010

by Russell D. Longcore

 

Envision this scene: A group of patriots gather in a hall in Philadelphia in a steamy late-June 1776 to make plans for a secession…a revolution. So they set about enumerating the many acts of tyranny committed by King George and his minions against the British citizens of the colonies.

 

A Virginia aristocrat named Thomas Jefferson was given the task of drafting the document. In mere days, he writes a document which will come to be regarded as the most important statement of human freedom in the history of mankind.

 

Many scholars believe that Jefferson meant for the Declaration of Independence to be performed, not just read by individuals. The flow of the words and the cadence of the phrases are an invitation to the human voice and the human ear.

 

The greatest value of the Declaration of Independence is its function as a compass needle, pointing always to that true north of the ideals declared within it. No matter how far We the People have strayed from its ideals, we have only to acknowledge our errors and return to the fundamental values published therein. For only in this document do we find the template for human liberty and governance.

 

Fulfilling the goals of any Declaration of Independence is a struggle that demands constant vigilance. We have all borne the tyranny visited upon us when we have taken our eyes off liberty’s compass. And though the struggle to return to true liberty may be perilous and arduous, it will also be ennobling. We still desire the sweet fruits of liberty, and our progeny still need heroes.

 

It is with great pleasure and pride that I present to you an interpretive reading of the 1776 Declaration of Independence. May liberty-loving men and women re-dedicate their Lives, their Fortunes and their Sacred Honor to the quest to be Free and Independent States once more.

Robert Byrd, Federal Bankruptcy, and Moral Debauchery
by Jacob G. Hornberger

 

Mainstream commentators were extolling the effectiveness of Senator Robert Byrd, who recently died. They pointed out how successful he was in bringing federal largess to West Virginia. Their accolades reflect not only why the federal government is broke but also the moral bankruptcy into which our society has plunged.

 

Indeed, how much federal largess a member of Congress brings home to his district has become a standard measuring rod for the mainstream press over how effectively he has represented his district. Whenever a U.S. Representative or U.S. Senator announces a federal grant has been awarded his area, which oftentimes occurs during campaign season, the local mainstream press goes gaga over what an effective member of Congress they have representing them.

 

Let’s examine how this system works to see how sordid it is.

 

Through the federal income tax, the American people are forced to send a portion of their hard-earned income to the IRS. Although federal officials sometimes tell people that America’s tax system is “voluntary” (see this video, for example), nothing could be further from the truth. If you don’t pay your taxes, they will prosecute you and do their best to see that you go to jail. They will also pursue you with civil processes, including liens, foreclosures, garnishments, and attachments.

Gulf Crisis Exposes Failures of Centralized Power

by Brian Roberts, Texas Tenth Amendment Center

 

Obama, the great centralizer, recently stated that he was looking for the right ass to kick. With this now famous statement he hoped to divert public attention from the failures of centralized power and begin to set a public mood against the oil industry and for expanded regulation and taxation. Other recent federal actions and statements make it painfully obvious that the federal government has zero interest in backing any plan to clean up the gulf in a timely manner.

 

While the crisis demands a federal response to help with stopping the leak and cleaning up the gulf, the ultimate goal of this administration is centralization of power. The following responses to the gulf crisis are effective methods in use today by Obama’s government to further this goal:

  • Present false arguments for centralized power; ignoring the disastrous role regulation played in creating the crisis
  • Attack and blackmail BP, and thus the oil industry as a whole, for a crisis created by faulty regulation that forced bad decisions
  • Further the crisis by refusing to help clean up the disaster and hindering state and private action
  • Leverage the emotional and financial impact on states and individuals to create a misguided street-level demand to pass the climate bill, giving more power to the feds

Yes, the ass Obama wants to kick is state sovereignty and individual freedom; so that his administration can centralize power.

When There is No Rule of Law

by Ron Paul

 

Last week ended with some promising news on finally stopping the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.  Unfortunately, the administration still seems to believe that shutting down working oil wells is a higher priority than effectively dealing with the broken one.   They are again issuing a moratorium on off-shore drilling, while maintaining a de facto ban on new permits even for shallow water drilling, which they previously stated would be unaffected.  The courts have twice declared this unconstitutional, over 70 percent of the people see this as unreasonable, yet the administration seems determined to simply end off-shore drilling, at least for those producers that cannot afford to sit idle for an unknown period of time until the ban is lifted.

 

Whether or not this latest effort will hold up in court is yet to be seen.  Sadly, many smaller oil producers in the Gulf see the writing on the wall, and instead of waiting around and risking their livelihoods on the whims of American politicians and judges, they are leaving for friendlier business climates.  What is happening to this country when the Republic of Congo is better for business than the United States?  One big factor is regime uncertainty.

 

Regime uncertainty is the opposite of the rule of law.  It is the rule of the whims of the people in charge and what mood they are in on any particular day.  It is usually associated with third world dictatorships and plays a major role in why some countries remain poor.  When a business cannot predict whether a government will issue a permit, confiscate or nationalize their capital investments, tax them into bankruptcy, or arbitrarily stall their operations, they tend to do business elsewhere.   This type of government hostility is not conducive to wealth creation and it is tragic to see it chasing away businesses here when we need the jobs and productivity more than ever.
