Trade Enforcement Failure

President after president has promised that the U.S. will compel foreign nations to meet labor standards established in free-trade agreements. They haven't. They probably can't. And American workers and politicians should stop buying it. The U.S. can sign trade agreements with countries after they stop murdering trade unionists and countenancing child labor.

Why I'm Running for President as a Republican

Jason Stanford | Posted 05.31.2015 | Politics
Jason Stanford

I have little experience relevant to this job that I do not intend to do, and I'm willing to put forth no effort at any point during this campaign. But with George Pataki entering the race, I realized that I, too, am a largely unknown heterosexual white man in America. Even Bob Ehrlich is thinking about getting in. If they can, why not I?

Sunday Roundup

This week, the presidential race began to resemble 19 Kids and Counting -- fitting, since they're both reality shows many would like to see taken off the air. On Tuesday, Bernie Sanders jumped in. On Wednesday, it was Rick Santorum. Thursday brought us George Pataki. (Talk about your Throwback Thursday!) Yesterday, Martin O'Malley tossed in his hat and next week, Lindsey Graham and Rick Perry are expected to do the same. Not to be out-shined by the new entrants, on Thursday "senior campaign officials" for Hillary Clinton gave a briefing about a rally to be held next month. Can't you feel the excitement? Just another year and a half -- and 241 debates -- left and it'll be over. If only the oncoming flood of clichés, bromides and platitudes could be monetized and exported, our economy, which this week was revealed to have shrunk by 0.7 percent last quarter, would be a juggernaut.
