Democracy and Tyranny
January 29th, 2020 10:43 PM
During President Donald J. Trump's impeachment trial, we'll hear a lot of talk about our rules for governing. One frequent claim is that our nation is a democracy.

In fact, the word democracy appears nowhere in our nation's two most fundamental documents,…

The Founders and National Debt
July 25th, 2019 8:19 PM
The Founders of the United States of America warned against massive federal debt, but, to our detriment, their political descendants are not paying attention.

Hartmann received help in this endeavor from his weekly guest, Sen. Bernie Sanders, Bolshevik of Vermont, who frequently appears Fridays on Hartmann's program for the preciously…

July 18th, 2012 5:43 PM
Last week, I summarized how President Barack Obama has not lived up to his campaign promises to lower the national deficit and debt and get our nation's fiscal house in order. So now I'm calling on him to heed the economic advice of our nation's first eight presidents.
Before I highlight some of the Founding Fathers' wisdom on federal debt and spending, let me remind readers…

UPDATED: Journalists love reporting that Americans are stupid, and they salivate at the thought of asking us to find the United States on a map or who we fought in the American Revolution.
