Demography is destiny. Take a look at the Progressives’ crazy agenda. Not one part of it says “family values.” Instead, it puts them at the head of your family dinner table. Their mission, led by the elites in Silicon Valley, Hollywood, and Corporate America, is to control you. The elites are awash in guilt. Are you? Hardly. You’re bustin’ your butt to make a living and to raise good kids. You’re the forgotten men and women who the Progressives feel they can steamroll. Not so fast. Their mission is not sustainable as long as we recognize the problem and put on the brakes. Joel Kotkin … [Read more...]
Looking for a Better America
After decades of urbanization, Americans are rebelling against the “bigger is better” mentality of city-living. Seeking a smaller, more affordable, sustainable, and secure lifestyle, some are venturing out from the mega-cities in search of a different life.
A number of techniques have become popular in an effort to save, especially scaling down the size of one’s home. Living small and saving big is even better when it’s coupled with living in a state that treats you more like a human than an ATM it can withdraw money from.
Look for a better America today. Start by reading what I have written to help you below:
You saw in Summer 2020 how many Americans wanted to escape the city. Riots, looting, and COVID-19 drove many urbanites away from their city homes and into the country. Nowhere was hit quite as hard as New York City. Between January 1, and December 17, 2020, about 3.57 million mostly wealthy people left The Big Apple. Now, Governor Andrew Cuomo wants them all to come back to pay a nightmarish menu of higher taxes. What a way to roll out the welcome wagon for the state's most important taxpayers. The top 5% of filers in New York contribute over 60% of the state's revenue, according to The … [Read more...]
Originally posted June 10, 2020. It’s time for you to take back your country. Get out. Move around. Have a little courage. Rub your eyes and move. Enough of this stay at home nonsense. Get out there. Just stay away from the cities for now, because the great migration is yesterday’s news. Anyone with a little money has already figured out how to escape the city. They’re in the Hamptons or are temporarily back home with mom and dad working remotely out of their old bedroom or in your den (sorry!). “Stay Home, Save Lives” is A Fraud of Epic Proportions. The issue now is how far into your … [Read more...]
The Second Amendment and the Constitution won this election. Because no one has done more for gun sales than Harris/Biden. And no document does more to protect you from them than the U.S. Constitution. That's what you're telling me. In my conversations with you, the gun shop owners—the gun enthusiasts, and the former law enforcement officers—you're seeing that the supply of guns and ammo is literally shot. You're telling me how hard it is to get supplies. "I've got guys buying guns/ammo for me all through the night," you tell me. "I'm doing record sales, every single day." What you're … [Read more...]
Well, that didn’t take long. Less than two months into his presidency and Joe Biden wants to raise taxes because we need to pay for all the SPENDING. Give me a break. They’re not interested in paying for anything. They won’t be paying for their spending, they’ll just be creating dollars out of thin air. Look at the chart of M2 money supply below to see how it’s already started. Press Secretary Jen Psaki talks to us with a face that says “I hate you,” and “I will crush you,” and looks just fine with the idea of taking more of what’s yours. She doesn’t look like she worries too much about … [Read more...]
There are still places in America where schools are closed. Despite a promise by Joe Biden that he'd have them open in his first 100 days (by April 30), teachers' unions in many places have no intention of opening schools. The selfish response to the pandemic by teachers' unions, who have left children at home dealing with the mental distress of isolation, has opened the eyes of many parents and politicians who are now fighting back. You've read a lot about West Virginia Governor Jim Justice here lately, and that's because he's leading a charge to make the state part of America's "growth … [Read more...]
You read yesterday that Gov. Jim Justice of West Virginia is trying to turn his state into a destination for liberty retirees and anyone looking for a better place in America. Not to mention his desire to make West Virginia a better place for people already there. But working against him are Democrats in Congress, including Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV). Democrats have lined up billions of dollars to be given to every state in America, but have attached rules to the money that will intercede in states' local affairs by preventing them from cutting taxes for their citizens. That's especially … [Read more...]
You may remember when Ronald Reagan said, “The best social program is a productive job for anyone who’s willing to work.” He was right. If there is anything America has learned from governors going wild and shutting down their states' economies, there's no bailout or stimulus that can provide for Americans as well as their own entrepreneurial spirit can. One place in America where you can see the difference in the performance between government and the private sector is Newark, NJ. For years then-Mayor Cory Booker and other politicians tried to engineer resuscitation efforts for the … [Read more...]
You may never see another migration like you saw in 2020. The number of people leaving New York City in 2020 was breathtaking. Between January 1, and December 17, 2020, about 3.57 million mostly wealthy people left New York City. The lost income caused by all those wealthy New Yorkers escaping the city was about $34 billion. That's like New York losing an economy the size of the entire country of Latvia in a single year. People were fleeing New York last year because of the pandemic, and the BLM/Antifa riots that plagued the city and others across the country. But the flow of wealthy … [Read more...]
You might be looking for the best place in America to retire. You may enjoy owning firearms, paying low taxes, and being left alone. That's the definition of what I'm calling a "liberty retiree." Recently a liberty retiree, known as U, asked MarketWatch's Catey Hill where would be the best place for them to retire. Hill answered (abridged): To answer your question, I went right to the source: the Libertarian Party itself, where I had a lively chat with Dan Fishman, the party’s executive director, who had a lot of advice for you. He said that, while the Libertarian Party doesn’t maintain a … [Read more...]
