Prosperity is closely linked to freedom-based public policies. If we want to grow and provide more opportunities in Mississippi, then let’s take the path that makes it easy to start a job, open a business, earn a side income, invest capital, serve customers, compete with incumbent businesses, and keep more of what we earn.

‘MS still has the lowest per capita personal income, just as it has for nearly 90-years, and an abysmally low labor force participation rate (LFPR). It’s lower today, in fact, than in 1976, which was during one of the worst economic depressions in US history.’

What? This isn’t news?

It is to Governor Phil Bryant.

One of the traveling Vietnam walls made an appearance this weekend in Flora, Mississippi. Appointed US Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith was scheduled to speak at the event on Saturday, October 27 and to lay a wreath at the wall in honor of those who perished. Instead, she blew off the veterans to make an appearance at a “biscuits and jam” event in Union and a chamber of commerce event in Pontotoc.

As if this weren’t bad enough, Hyde-Smith didn’t even bother to notify the event’s organizers that she would not be attending.

When all is said and done, we are all descended from immigrants, which means that all native Americans, including those called “Native Americans,” have ancestors who were not native Americans. As a native Englishman who is the husband of a native American and the father of native American children, I don’t need a DNA test to discover or verify my true identity.

Civil wars happen when there is a profound philosophical incompatibility inside a nation. Violence and war are the secondary effects of this cause and the later phases of its development. We are now at a stage where we can no longer discern a political unity or even organized disunity. We cannot even agree to disagree.

Mississippi’s biggest problems aren’t going to be solved by party politics, racial identity politics or continuing corporate cronyism. Centralized government has to be removed from the equation entirely.

We are witnessing storm troopers in cyber-space “pulling the plug” on those whose voices they refuse to tolerate. If something is not done to protect freedom of speech on the internet we will be entering a new reign of intolerance in which only “approved” sites will be accessible.
