Leadership Matters for America PAC

Chris Christie unveiled his leadership PAC today, with a succinct message: cut spending, and increase educational opportunities. I liked the message. Nothing lofty, just simple, direct and with an eye set on international prosperity. Nothing ominous, more or less a follow your heart message encouraging Americans to join in on that journey to prosperity.

I expect that he has a uniquely diverse donor base. I attended his 52nd Birthday Bash, and the crowd was filled with people of all ethnicity, something that other candidates may be missing. America is the ultimate training ground for capitalist of every device, and the more capital that is funneled through America's banking industry the more strength surges through the economy.

As the leader of the free world every industry is an opportunity and every government is a partner either directly or indirectly. Investing in America by Americans is no small feat, when there are so many different lucrative international industries, eagerly wanting diverse management and access to markets to dispense the fruits of their productivity. The upside to investing in America has always been its lucrative markets. As the largest economy on the globe, anything produced here has a plethora of eagerly awaiting customers set on acquiring the latest product.

GOP leadership has taken credit for strengthening the economy, and rightly so. What the next step entails: the Presidency --probably. Lowering the unemployment rate and putting more Americans to work is no small task. One that the GOP is fundamentally equipped to handle and eagerly anticipates accomplishing. Christie is still the most adored leader in GOP circles, and has the ear of all the movers and shakers in the Republican Party. As the campaign gets closer to the summer, I expect to see his poll numbers tick up. He is eloquent at portraying the modesty every candidates needs, yet articulate enough to combat the naysayers in open debate. Financially, GOP leadership means opportunity for every cash strapped industry. The democratic taxing scheme will only materialize modest gains when compared to the free market techniques of the GOP.

White House Notes

WASHINGTON, DC –

On November 20, 2014, President Obama took executive action to start fixing our broken immigration system so it works better for our people and our economy. The three main pillars of his action include:

  • Making it easier and faster for high-skilled immigrants, graduates, and entrepreneurs to stay and contribute to our economy, 
  • Dealing responsibly with certain undocumented immigrants who are DREAMers or parents of citizens or lawful permanent residents, by requiring that they pass background checks and pay their fair share of taxes.
  • Building on our progress at the border and enforcing our immigration laws in smarter, more effective ways.

Here is the Rub

Don't you think that in order to terminate a life you should have a reason. "I don't feel like it," is a good reason to not go to the movies, but not to stop a pregnancy from going to term.
 

Market Move

Denmark sent hedge funds and other speculators a clear message yesterday, daring them to test the full force of its monetary arsenal at their own peril.

The central bank signaled it is ready to step up currency interventions and continue cutting rates to stamp out any lingering speculation it may be unable to defend its euro peg.

Famous Quote

King's response to our crisis can be put in one word: revolution. A revolution in our priorities, a reevaluation of our values, a reinvigoration of our public life and a fundamental transformation of our way of thinking and living that promotes a transfer of power from oligarchs and plutocrats to everyday people and ordinary citizens
