California’s “Trojan Horse” Voter Ballot

Public Choice Theory

Public Choice Theory  was the brainchild, born in the mid-20th century by two professors, James Buchanan and Gordon Tullock.  These two men were libertarians whose goal in the name of “freedom” was to diminish the  American government to a skeleton level and wipe out its bureacracy in favor of the private sector economy.

Tullock and Buchanan curried favor with wealthy conservative American donors who helped them hold lavish seminars in Florida during summers. The seminars were free for judges and law students. Here Tullock taught judges his theories of economics and politics.

In four weeks, the cream of trillions of dollars was skimmed off by Wall Street, while our President said, “Let them drink disinfectant,” and he urged us to go on contaminating each other by not wearing masks. 

Now on the second-and third- rounds of the “stimulus”, things haven’t changed much. Public corporations are getting money and so are foreign students. The death rates are still underestimated and tests and PPE supplies undelivered.

Now our President is promising a miracle cure in just months. Let’s take a look at the left and right responses to this. Continue reading →

Helicopter Money for Wall Street – Image

This image by the St. Louis Fed is taken from a Wolf Street article  by Wolf Richter in San Francisco. This picture is worth a 1,000 words….

Total assets on the Fed’s balance sheet from debts of the federal government increase to $608 trillion in four weeks. The stimulus program handed out $1.77 trillion to big banks to loan to their largest customers who pay them the biggest fees. All money was spent in four weeks, bankrupting the original stimulus program.
