On the evening of January 28th, President Obama will deliver his State of the Union Address. No doubt he will present an agenda of increased political paternalism, with a focus on policies to “remedy” supposed economic inequality through government spending and higher taxes on the “rich,” while also insisting upon more government “job creation,” the coming “success” of ObamaCare, and the need to “save the planet” through more government regulation of business.
But what if the President offered, instead, an agenda for freedom rather than one of paternalism? What would the State of the Union address be like if he had an epiphany for defending individual liberty rather than more unrestricted government license over our lives?
The AEC’s fundamental goal is to promote a free, responsible and prosperous society. Through education and improving public understanding of key economic questions, the AEC promotes the idea of a free market economy and the ideal of a free society.
