How to Bureaucratize the Corporate World:
Ben O'Neill

January 23, 2008
While already deeply entrenched in government decision-making, consultation and submission to the interests of various "stakeholders" is also becoming more and more common in the business world under the influence of the doctrine of corporate social responsibility (CSR). Weary of the relentless pursuit of profit and the daunting task of satisfying both shareholders and customers, corporate managers are falling all over themselves to emulate the methods of their bureaucratic cousins. Ben O'Neill discusses the dangers of the CSR doctrine.

Get the Feds Out of Our Schools!:
Alan Caruba

January 22, 2008
Alan Caruba writes taht the best thing that Congress can do is to admit No Child Left Behind is a bad, flawed, failed program that should be discontinued. The worst prospect will be that more money will be thrown at it and the education of America’s children will be laid waste when Congress reauthorizes it.

Ron Paul

Trying to Kill the Immigration Card:
Selwyn Duke

January 23, 2008
With the victories of Mike Huckabee and John McCain in the first two primary contests and Mitt Romney’s failures prior to Michigan, a fiction is being bandied about: The anti-amnesty position isn’t playing well in Peoria.  Selwyn Duke attempts to dispel this mainstream-media-propagated assertion.

Hoisted With Their Own Politically Correct Petards:
Selwyn Duke

January 23, 2008
Selwyn Duke believes that our nation in general and the Democrat constituency in particular has an affirmative-action mentality.  This is why we’re in the midst of a frenzy over two very empty vessels.  The media won’t talk about it much, but millions of citizens would love to be part of history in electing the first woman or “black” president.  Most of these people don’t really understand what policies are advocated by these two politicians, and they don’t care.  The packaging – female or multiracial – is pleasing enough to the politically-correct palate to blind them to other concerns.  Thoroughly imbued with a fashionable prejudice, they just believe that somehow, some way, having a member of a certain group in office will make America a land of sweetness and light.

Improving the Presidential Nomination Process: Holding All Primaries on the Same Day:
G. Stolyarov II

January 24, 2008
Given the structure of America’s two-party system, voters most frequently only have a choice between two viable candidates for President in the general elections. Often most voters see this as a choice between the lesser of two evils; they dislike both candidates and vote for the one they think will do the least damage. In this article -- the first of three -- Mr. Stolyarov offers some ideas for improving the way candidates are nominated. Holding all states’ primaries on the same day will enable the candidate who has at least a plurality of support among members of his party to actually win the nomination. Furthermore, it will be fairer to voters in states where the primaries are currently held later.
