What is the Republican Agenda in Congress?

Republicans have a narrow majority in Congress but even amongst themselves it’s difficult to figure out what their agenda is. October 23, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP The United States currently has a Republican led Congress in both House and Senate; but It is quite a challenge to figure out what their agenda is moving forward. Their failure to repeal Obamacare doesn’t bode well for anything else that may follow. The Trump administration talks about tax cuts by doubling the standard deduction and reducing an overall … [Read More...]

Catalonia Attempts to Secede from Spain

After pacifying Catalonia for generations, Spain strikes at this once autonomous nation’s effort to secede from Spain once and for all. October 16, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, GWP Managing Director To varying degrees, the nation of Catalonia has been trying to secede from Spain since the mid 1800’s. With a population one million shy of New York City, and a geographic area roughly equivalent to that of Massachusetts and Rhode Island combined, this movement packs a punch. Within the country of Spain, it is of great consequence what happens to … [Read More...]

Canadian Middle Class Concerned About Morneau Tax Proposal

The “consultation period” on Bill Morneau’s tax proposal is closed and the Canadian middle class is rightly concerned. October 9, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, GWP Managing Director In the 75-day consultation period on Canadian Minister of Finance, Bill Morneau’s, tax plan leading up to October 2nd, I happened upon a petition in firm opposition to it. Naturally, I looked into it because I also oppose taxes no matter where I am! This plan looks like a disaster. Morneau recently conceded that some “tweaks” and “changes” will be needed to serve … [Read More...]

US Debt Tops Twenty Trillion, With No Spending Cuts in Sight

The US topped twenty trillion dollars in national debt and the Republicans want to cut taxes but not spending. October 2, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP The US just surpassed the twenty trillion dollar debt mark, and there’s little prospect of that turning around. Republicans who were once very critical of the fiscal condition of the US budget and economy, are now content to offer tax cuts without any cuts to spending to offset it. I’m all for tax cuts, and to varying degrees economists agree that there is some level … [Read More...]

Disastrous Government Response to Disasters

The policies and responses by government when it comes to natural disasters is disastrous! September 25, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP In the wake of natural disasters, government has proven to be the greatest enabler of poor choices, and hindrance to rebuilding and healing. Natural disasters and riots should be a Keynesian’s dream come true! But in point of fact, there is nothing economically stimulating about destruction of that nature. Rebuilding after something like a riot or a hurricane is anything but economically … [Read More...]

State Level Single Payer Healthcare?

States dabble in Single Payer Healthcare policies with little regard for the costs. September 18, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director at GWP New York and California both are considering measures to indulge a single payer healthcare system within their respective states while dodging the very important question of costs. Vermont Senator, Bernie Sanders’ impeccable timing to introduce a single payer system federally with the recent ascension above $20 Trillion in the federal debt cannot be ignored either.   Vermont tried, in fact, … [Read More...]

Interview: Entrepreneur Decoded

September 15, 2017 Interview with Bobby Casey & Siimon Sander of Entrepreneur Decoded Being an entrepreneur absolutely has its perks; otherwise Bobby would not be one.  But there are difficulties, too.  While he absolutely encourages people to take the plunge, it's equally important people consider the advice and experience of those already in the pool: be honest about the ups and downs. He discusses his experience as an entrepreneur and small business owner with Siimon Sander, as well as gives some insights on how he keeps his … [Read More...]

Left and Right Controlling People by Violating Property Rights

September 11, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP The total disregard for private property rights from both the left and right sides of the isle is very disturbing. This is what happens when you have a system totally structured around buying people off. Politicians buy off the poor vote with little welfare crumbs like food stamps. They buy off richer donors through regulations and pay to play; and sometimes with programs that funnel money to their industries. Whatever the case may be, the constant promising of other people’s … [Read More...]

Labor Day & Its Union Roots

The history of Labor Day finds its roots in union thuggery; but has since taken a turn toward favoring and encouraging commerce! September 4, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP Labor Day is as good a reason as any to fire up a grill, but make no mistake, this is a byproduct of union thuggery. Labor Day is equally as good a reason as any to have a sale on goods and services! I’m all for good times and commerce, and I’m rather glad that’s the turn this particular holiday took. Let’s not be too quick to glaze over the history of … [Read More...]

Trump Administration Targeting Dissenters

Trump administration targeting dissenters using easily traceable technology. August 28, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP Presidential administrations targeting dissenters is not a new phenomenon; but technology has enabled a whole new level of persecution. As far back as Woodrow Wilson, and as recent as Barack Obama, dissenters have been targeted by various administrations. Wilson created an entire department called the “American Protective League”. It was basically a group of private citizens who collaborated with the … [Read More...]

Cryptocurrencies Further Scrutinized by Government

Cryptocurrencies are further scrutinized by the same government that claims jurisdiction in other countries. August 21, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP Cryptocurrencies continue to be targeted and scrutinized by the government, and the government has already demonstrated there are no lines they won’t cross to get this under their control. Right now, there is no actual policy in place, per se. There are demands placed on the DHS for policy and protocols, so all that remains to be seen. About two months ago, I wrote about … [Read More...]

ObamaCare and the Republican Failure to Repeal

Republicans fail to deliver on the primary promise they made to the voters: Repealing ObamaCare. The cost of that failure will fall squarely on the shoulders of taxpayers. August 14, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP The ONE issue that got Republicans elected was the promise of repealing ObamaCare; and that turned out to be a monumental failure. Congress members went from an overture of anti-ACA rhetoric and promises of rescue, to equivocating on the finer points of the proposed bill, to ultimately failing to pull … [Read More...]

Venezuela’s Continuing Economic Collapse

Venezuela's economic collapse is a series of examples of what NOT to do in central planning, if not an outright indictment of central planning itself. August 7, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP Venezuela's economic collapse is consistent with every other socialist experiment. When crude was high and Venezuela was at its prime, all the socialists came out to celebrate and hail it as a successful socialist experiment and a palpable check-mate to critics. Not so fast… We’ve been following Venezuela and while there was a … [Read More...]

Universal Income & 100% Inheritance Tax?

People suggesting a universal income and 100% inheritance tax are out there, and aren’t being ignored entirely. July 31, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, GWP Managing Director A 100% inheritance tax and a universal basic income have to be the most preposterous escalations of welfare I’ve heard! That they aren’t being laughed out of the room, but rather that such proposals are being taken to heart quite seriously, is rather disheartening to say the very least. The idea that everyone is simultaneously entitled to an income, while not entitled to … [Read More...]

How is MAGA Working Out?

The path toward MAGA doesn’t seem to be very “great”. July 24, 2017 By: Bobby Casey, Managing Director GWP Donald Trump ran on the promise of MAGA (Making America Great Again). While I may be very cynical toward the United States today, I don’t deny that there were several great aspects of the American experiment that I wouldn’t mind bringing back. But it’s clear that MAGA is the “Hope and Change” of the Republican Party. It’s really whatever you want to project upon it. You want it to be an audit of the Federal Reserve and a return … [Read More...]
