Our mission is to build a network of funding sources and a community of activists who will advance an agenda that embraces a philosophy of Constitutional Limited Government, the Rule of Law, Economic Freedom, and the traditional values that sustain individual initiative, personal autonomy and responsibility.

Our network community is dedicated to replacing current elected liberal central planners who believe in command and control socialism by a few elite technocrats, the few ruling the many, with leaders who support the freedom of the individual, free markets engaged in free trade, and free market solutions to healthcare, retirement, energy and education.

Dear Lowman,

This e-newsletter is about Sound Currency and Free Market. Mundane and quotidian use of money obscures the complex reality and theory of money, a mechanism of exchange, and how it works. There are three key points: 1) government fiat money; 2) fractional banking which can be free market or government; and, 3) free market commodity based, usually gold and/or silver currency. Patrick Barron discusses Deadly Duo of Fiat Money and Fractional Banking and Guido Hulsman discusses the actual production of physical currency.

Judy Shelton discusses how to transition Sound Currency based,in part,on Gold and Brett Anders at ROI has a different perspective.

The Yuan Scapegoat: No Free Market in Currency

Federal Reserve is a cartel of currency, credit and banks that, indirectly, set the value of the dollar by fiat and by setting the capital requirements, (the fractional reserve ).
At the core of this argument is a basic misunderstanding of monetary policy. There is no free market in currencies, as there is in wheat or bananas. Currencies trade in global markets, but their supply is controlled by a cartel of central banks, which have a monopoly on money creation. The Federal Reserve controls the global supply of dollars and thus has far more influence over the greenback's value than any other single actor.
I note that Chinese money honors mass murderer of 70 million of his own people, Mao Tse Tung, a mass murderer, compared to, for example, our currency with George Washington and Abraham Lincoln.

Socialism Will Bankrupt Almost All Of Us

English the way it should be spoken UK Member of Parliament Dan Hannan's opening remark about running "out of our money" sounds like the quote from Margaret Thatcher, I think, that "Socialism works fine until it runs out of other people's money." Dare we hope? Another Margaret Thatcher.
You've probably heard Dan Hannan interviewed on Hannity or Glenn Beck or Bill O'Reilly and perhaps even seen him in action in the English Parliament. Even though this is from nearly one year ago, it is timely and it would seem totally appropriate for someone to address President Obama and the Liberals in the same manner as it appears we're currently in the very same economic condition as MK Hannan is describing to the Prime Minister.
The UK Parliament has always been known for its vigorous debates. Please enjoy the mastery of the Spoken Word of the gentleman... and his delivery. You will hear the English language as it should be. Watch how he addresses the Prime Minister directly, without apology, and without Teleprompters. Reminiscent of Sir Winston Churchill.

Small Business vs. Big Government

Dr. Bill Dunkelberg is an economist, banker and college professor who explains economic issues in clear and accessible style. With wit and style, Dr. Dunkelberg makes the point that "Small Businesses" are economic drivers of employment, ideas and innovations, and raising our standard of living. He is a Board member of the Wynnewood Institute. Small Businesses strangled by command and control of the Central Government "What is the third largest country in the world based on its production of output? It is America's small businesses.

Collectively, they produce half of our private Gross Domestic Product (the total value of final goods and services produced), employ over 60 percent of the private sector workforce, create the majority of new jobs in America, and "out patent" the larger companies in the economy (they are innovators). Small business is the "R&D" of the U.S. economy. It is where new ideas, new products, and new methods are tested. If successful, the enterprise is rewarded with profits (to finance expansion) and imitation, as new competitors seek to capitalize on successes. It is the entrepreneurial spirit of America that has energized the economy and made it the most successful in history."
