This week, Mike Beitler of Voice America Business invited me on for an examination of Article V and the National Debt Relief Amendment, the Occupy Wall Street protests (with Greece as a parallel), and the reality of immigration policy. Mike is a host (alongside his teaching and business consulting) I’ve grown to respect over the years, and I encourage people to have a listen. Don’t hesitate to email me feedback.
Here are the articles we discuss, and since they all have plenty of references, they provide an excellent starting point for those interested in a deeper examination.
- Article V and the National Debt Relief Amendment: Laying Article V Fears to Rest; An Historic Fiscal Solution, If We Overcome Convention Fears; How to End the Debt Ceiling Charade (along with further audio from the Mike Church show).
- Occupy Wall Street and Greece: Occupy Wall Street Protesters Make Demands (by Ryan Young of the Competitive Enterprise Institute); Greek Rioters Epitomize Statist Mentality.
- Immigration: The Joys of Legal Immigration; Immigration Enforcement Already Impotent; Immigration Chaos.
