Economy

As I’m sure you’re aware, serious tax reform is under consideration in Congress. Many believe tax relief will make America more business-friendly, ease the financial burden on American families, and improve the lives of Americans. And as you know, Hillsdale teaches the fundamental principles of freedom, which are required for free-enterprise and the entrepreneurial spirit to flourish.

For the past decade, many of our economic policies have defied basic free-market principles. What’s worse, these policies represent a return to the idea repudiated by the American Revolution—that some are equipped by nature or training to manage the lives of others without their consent.

I had the privilege of teaching on this subject in one of our online courses, “Economics 101: The Principles of Free Market Economics.” I thought I would share this free course with you to deepen your understanding as Congress votes in the coming weeks.

I hope this course enriches you as our country continues to work towards freer markets and economic prosperity.

Warm regards,

A question for my fellow Americans:
Why aren’t you blaming the Democrats?
 
• Democrats run higher education, where costs soar and value plummets. SO WHY AREN’T YOU BLAMING DEMOCRATS?
 
• Democrats run most large cities, where violent crime rates are off the charts. So when young people needlessly die in the streets, WHY AREN’T YOU BLAMING DEMOCRATS?
 
• Democrats took over our healthcare system, resulting in skyrocketing premiums and deductibles, with far fewer choices. SO WHY AREN’T YOU BLAMING DEMOCRATS?
 
• More people are being killed in the name of one religion than all other religions on the planet combined, but Democrats attack anyone calling on that religion to clean up its act. So every time people are killed in the name of that religion, WHY AREN’T YOU BLAMING DEMOCRATS?
 
• Democrats demand higher minimum wages, thus lowering youth employment and increasing automation. So every time you see a touch screen instead of an employee, WHY AREN’T YOU BLAMING DEMOCRATS?
 
• Democrats run green energy, which costs thousands of percent more in tax subsidies to produce the same amount of energy. So when money is missing for roads or bridges or children or veterans, WHY AREN’T YOU BLAMING DEMOCRATS?
 
• Democrats run Hollywood, so when ticket prices rise for one-sided sermons masquerading as movies, WHY AREN’T YOU BLAMING DEMOCRATS?
 
I could go on, but my point is simple: Whatever Democrats run inevitably makes lives worse. Violence increases. Prices soar. Racism deepens. Choices drop. Safety falls. Decency evaporates. Hate rages on campuses. Free speech is bullied.
 
So, my fellow Americans, why—oh why—AREN’T YOU BLAMING DEMOCRATS????
