I recently had dinner with my best friend, George, and I expressed a lot of political ideas and judgments to him. We have a stable, robust democracy in America. However, our prosperity is in jeopardy – with a huge national debt, over a trillion in student loans and entitlements that are actuarially unsustainable. These are very real concerns and those who care about our future will think seriously before this upcoming election. We cannot tax ourselves into prosperity.
