Spend verses Save (submitted to CDT for Letters to the Editor on 2/26/2010)
Is it possible for our elected officials such as our new President to discuss ways to save money in our country rather than ways to spend more money? My mind seems to float away into the land of "nowhere" when I hear talk of spending trillions more on this or that. Let's just take a sharp look at one possible cost cutting measure - the amount that it costs the U.S. taxpayers to keep former U.S. Presidents in… Continue

Liquidating the Empire
By Patrick J. Buchanan
A decade ago, Oldsmobile went. Last year, Pontiac. Saturn, Saab and Hummer were discontinued. A thousand GM dealerships shut down.

For 15 years, from the mid 1970's to 1990, I worked in Detroit , Michigan .

- For me, I see the Constitution as wagon wheels. They have carried us for over Two Hunderd years, and the wagon is fully loaded.

They knew how to build a good wheel…
