December 3-4: It's Not Leadership, It's an outrage

This weekend on my radio program I talk about many issues, including continuing large scale unemployment in the United States, the financial crisis in Europe, and the debate over how to pay for an ongoing cut in the Social Security tax. But, one theme that pulls all these issues together is our need for both economic freedom and individual responsibility.Click here to listen.

The benefits of economic freedom, individual liberty, and individual responsibility over the socialist authoritarianism and totalitarianism the world has experienced in many places and at many times over the past century can be articulated with a pictorial comparison of the Tea Party verses "Occupy" protests (click here). Trust me; you'll love this juxtaposition -- seeing this will be worth 2 minutes of your time.
