He documents czarism is winning. Uhh, czarism and capitalism are different. Like Russia and Hong Kong are different.
The Democrats and Republicans are enamored with czars because they are searching for adult leadership.
We do not need a budget czar. Our representatives need to stop borrowing.
Congress has borrowed $95,000 per household and spent it.
California has borrowed how much…about $24,000 per household and spent it?
$300B / 12.3 M households.
That buys the median house outside CA, NY. Imagine the spurt in the economy if everyone had a paid off house with an extra $1,200 to $2,000 per month in the pocket.
