Small Government The Answer

The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen. Not everyone understands why that’s true, however, and Dennis Prager responds to some of those critics, pointing out, “The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen.

Prager also introduces a rare guest–20-year-old Amala Ekpunobi–an impressive new edition to the PragerU family, who became a much happier person when she left left-wing activism and victimhood in favor of logical conservative values.

 

 

Is Free College A Good Idea?

With the Democrat Party barreling out of control on a careless spending spree, it appears that free college for all is next on the docket.

Thanks to big government, the cost of a college education has skyrocketed at an alarming rate, rising a shocking 1,000 percent since the 1970s. PragerU’s Will Witt takes the issue to the University of Texas at Austin campus, where he receives some interesting thoughts on whether a college education should be a freebie and who will pay for it.

Adam Carolla For Governor!

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Adam Carolla, Richard Grenell, Elisha Krauss about the Gavin Newsom recall, California exodus, and if Adam Carolla is really considering running for governor of California.

Now. an effort is underway to recall Gavin Newsom. who has pushed non-science based COVID lockdowns, which have destroyed small businesses. California leadership doesn’t seem to understand why businesses are leaving in droves. Some are even discussing creating a wealth tax that will accelerate people moving out of California.

Adam Richard and Elisha discuss if California is dead or if a Newsom recall could give the state a chance to turn it around. They also answer whether or not any of them have any plans for running for California Governor.

 

5 ERCOT Board Members Resign

Five board members of Texas grid operator ERCOT abruptly and jointly resigned in the aftermath of last week’s massive power outages. In a joint letter to the board, the outgoing members said they were resigning, “to allow state leaders a free hand with future direction and to eliminate distractions.”

Translation: They want to give state government complete control of all future ERCOT matters. Not a good thing, says Riss Flex. In addition, ERCOT drew concern from the public regarding out-of-state board leadership, including some of the resigning board members who did not live in Texas. Also not a good thing. Says Flex, “I’m personally not a big fan of big government controlling businesses. I don’t think that’s the government’s place. Let’s just hope they have the best interest in mind of Texans.” Here’s more analysis with Flex.

Sounding The Alarm On Dems

Mark Levin is sounding the alarm on perhaps the most radical and corrupt administrations in our history. Through only two weeks on the job, fake President Joe Biden has signed 43 executive orders and actions. With the flick of his tyrannical pen, Biden has managed to destroy female sports, immigration, public schools and bail out blue state governors, all without any legislation from Congress.

Perhaps the most egregious action of all is the government clamp down on the suburbs via the Fair Housing Act of 1938. The feds will now nationalize zoning, housing, school and transportation decisions, and they will regulate where parks and libraries get built. And don’t forget the big spending, a trademark of all Democrat administrations. It’s just one big dose of Big Brother. Here’s more with Mark Levin on Blaze TV.

You’ve Been Warned

The historic Georgia Senate runoff elections are no longer about the Peach State, but about the future of America. The election will determine the balance of the Senate and the balance of power for the entire U.S. government.

Should GOP incumbents David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler lose, the Democrat Party will seize control  of Congress and the White House. Hopefully, that’s just another Disney-like fairytale. Former Arkansas Governor and Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee explained it like only he can: “If Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi are given a gas pedal and no breaks, our heads will spin with the changes they’re going to push on us. We might end up with a runaway train with big and expensive and expansive government.”

It’s a scary thought, indeed. Here’s Huckabee with more analysis.

Liberty Stocking Stuffers

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, especially at the malls across the country. Despite a myriad of restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the American tradition of shopping for gifts is in full force.

And that includes consumer advocate John Stossel, who asks, “What should I give a person who wants to learn about liberty?” How about a book? Stossel reviews six books that tackle the tyranny of big government intervention, including Free to Choose, by Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman and his wife, Rose. The couple explains in plain English how limiting government creates prosperity. Milton Friedman once said, “Put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in five years there would be a shortage of sand.” Here’s more with Stossel.

What They Did To Grandma!

I Can’t Believe They Did This To Grandma!!

In this video, we go over the latest insane government overreach going on in places like Australia and New York, while at the same time police allow mass protesting and rioting. Plus, we cover Donald Trump’s Middle East troop withdrawal and nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize. More from We Are Change.

The Anti-Racist Racists

Are  protests pushing Americans to want to do something about racial injustice? That might be a good thing and can start with policies to make society fairer, such as ending the drug war, limiting police unions and cutting big government programs that encourage dependency.

But no, that doesn’t sit well with activists. Radical groups, such as Black Lives Matter, are making things worse, advancing their obsession with race, pushing Marxism and criticizing the nuclear family. Radio show host Larry Elder says blacks would benefit if more of them grew up in nuclear families. “The number one problem facing the black community is absence of fathers and Black Lives Matter actually is encouraging that.” He emphasized that today, blacks can do three simple things to succeed: “Finish high school, don’ have a kid until you get married and get a job. Do those three things and you will not be poor.”

Elder joins political commentator John Stossel and Kmele Foster of Freethink to break down the divisive rhetoric of the ever-changing radical left.
