Rebecca Friedrichs, a longtime public-school teacher who—in a landmark Supreme Court case—went to bat for educators forced to pay union dues, is promoting school choice and arguing students and teachers should have the liberty to an education free of government coercion. From Fox News Opinion: “No child — not one single child —- should have to suffer in a dangerous or underperforming school and neither should their teachers.

Moderate Democrats are Socialists in Sheep’s Clothing

The mainstream media portrays the Democrat presidential primary as a fight between socialists and moderates for the party’s future. On one side, Sen. Bernie Sanders has embraced the label of democratic-socialist and pushes for policies like government-run health care and free college for all. Candidates like Joe Biden and Pete Buttigieg portray themselves as the moderate alternatives to Sen. Sanders and the other progressive candidates. Unfortunately, their arguments do not pass the sniff test. Biden and Buttigieg wrap socialist policy in moderate rhetoric but still advocate for the expansion of government power and the reduction of individual ...

The ...

Deregulation Heals the Economy

2020 Democrats are continuing to bribe the American tax-payer with “free” tax-payer funded programs. The only catch? They will 100% have to raise taxes on ALL Americans to fund these asinine programs. President Trump, on the other hand, is not only lowering taxes but cutting needless regulations. In fact, according to the Washington Times, President Trump credited his “common sense” regulatory agenda for boosting the economy. Speaking at a White House roundtable on cutting red tape, Mr. Trump cited new numbers showing his administration has cut regulatory costs by $50 billion and has rolled back 7.5 regulations for every new rule ...
