Our America Initiative Advisory Council Member of Defense & Foreign Policy

I can remember many times as a young kid when my mother would give the "Silence is Golden" cough medicine when fighting a cold. It usually worked, and proved in that situation that silence was golden. But in the aftermath of the Paris killings, many are learning that silence is anything but that.

Reforming Obamacare: Start with The Young

By Earl L. Grinols
Our America Initiative Advisory Council Member of Health Care

After the lofty promises of hope and change that led to passage of the Patient Protection and  Affordable Care Act (ACA), young people are waking up to how much the health law targets them with higher costs.  Yes, those lucky enough to be covered on parents' health plans can postpone the consequences until they are 26.  But for the rest, the situation is grim:  Young people face disproportionately high costs to pay for coverage and a crushing burden of taxes that could impede their future prosperity.

By Iain Murray - FEE Foundation for Economic Education
Our America Initiative Advisory Council Member of Energy & Environment

From Principia Mathematica to Charlie Hebdo
The massacre of 12 cartoonists and journalists at Charlie Hebdo magazine in Paris this week should remind us to ask: Why is free speech so important? It is more than an inalienable individual right; it is fundamental to human progress. That is why it is one of the most important institutions of liberty.

Political Promises are “Elect Me” Tools

LetBamaVote.org

Kay Ivey as a 2010 candidate for Lt. Governor answered an I&R question on her website “…that average citizens could make law even if Montgomery disagrees…not [to] replace the legislature, but supplement it in case they fail to do our business.”  Under the heading “How you would benefit,” Ivey using only 22 words clearly stated the power and usefulness of I&R, “If Alabama could pass Initiative and Referendum, we could do the important business of our state even if Montgomery didn’t want to.”

Fourteen years in the making, estimated at $2.6 billion for 130 turbines, covering 25 square miles in Nantucket Sound off the coast of Massachusetts, the Cape Wind project has yet to install one turbine—let alone produce any electricity.

On the Leaves of a Rhododendron

By Grant Mincy - Center for a Stateless Society 
Our America Initiative Advisory Council Member of Energy & Environment

Some of my fondest childhood memories are with my parents hiking around the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. One memory is particularly vivid. I was six and on the trail to Abrams Falls after a summer rain moved through the forest. The sun was just again peaking through the canopy. As my folks and I moved along the trail I noticed water droplets on the leaves of a rhododendron. We stopped for a rest next to the woody plant along the bank of Abrams Creek. I sat down, letting my hands feel the damp Earth, laden with bryophytes. I studied the beads of water on the plant before turning my considerations to the creek. My love for nature began young.
