The story of the first major celebration of Thanksgiving by the Pilgrims in the fall of 1621 is all too familiar. However, what were the messages and the significant elements which contributed to the pilgrims being able survive and to celebrate Thanksgiving thereafter? These elements are property rights, free market ideas and early forms of capitalism, which fostered individual upward mobility and economic prosperity for c...

There is great anticipation that soon-to-be President Donald Trump will embrace pro-growth policies, however his tendency to politicize allocation of capital is still worrisome.

The effects of Ted Cruz’s “New York values” remark months ago before the Iowa caucuses to describe Donald Trump's liberal record, was a main factor that led to his distant third place finish in the New York primary. It may even have affected the Mr. Cruz's momentum in the race which he ultimately suspended. However this experience should be instructive to the senator and other conservatives about how to go about their mess...

Senator Marco Rubio has a political niche that can help overcome any doubts about his credentials to be president, and still make him a formidable candidate going into the March primaries. In addition to being a young bilingual Latino Senator, Mr. Rubio’s humble beginnings has shattered the stereotype about the GOP that it is the party of old rich white men. Democrats and the media often amplify this stereotype. The inspi...
