The CON's on the patient with laws that keep them suffering

From the Right / John Stossel /

Governments create problems. Then they complain about them.

"A public health crisis exists," says Kentucky's government, citing a report that found "a shortage of ambulance providers."

Local TV stations report on "people waiting hours for medical transportation."

"Six-year-old Kyler Truesdell fell off his motorcycle," reported Channel 12 news...Read more

It's good to have alternatives to government-created currencies

From the Right / John Stossel /

House members summoned Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg to Washington, D.C., and grilled him -- harshly -- about his plan to create a new currency, Libra.

"Why should we trust you?!" asked Congressman Mike Doyle.

I liked it when Zuckerberg said, "I actually don't know if Libra's going to work, but I believe that it's important to try new things."

Ending Wars

From the Right / John Stossel /

Four years ago, the media were talking about a "Libertarian Moment."

I had high hopes!

Sen. Rand Paul ran for president, promising to "take our country back from special interests." But his campaign never took off.

He "shouldn't even be on the stage," said Donald Trump at a Republican presidential debate.

Paul quit his presidential campaign ...Read more

Government should get out of the student loan business

From the Right / John Stossel /

Student loan debt keeps growing.

There is a better solution than the ones politicians offer, which stick the taxpayer or the loan lenders with the whole bill.

It's called an "income share agreement."

Investors give money to a college, and the college then gives a free or partially free education to some students. When those students graduate,...Read more

Saying that men and women are different isn't sexist

From the Right / John Stossel /

The media keep telling us: There's no difference between male and female brains.

I don't believe it. Many of you must be skeptical, too. Seventeen million people watched my old ABC show on sex differences, almost as many as watched "Game of Thrones."

Nonetheless, people now fill auditoriums to hear neuroscientist Gina Rippon talk about her new...Read more

Domestic and Foreign Wars

From the Right / John Stossel /

Democratic presidential candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard is controversial within her party.

She says the U.S. should talk to its enemies. She was criticized for meeting with Syrian dictator Bashar Assad.

But Democrats were supposed to be the anti-war party, I say to her in my newest video.

"They're heavily influenced by a foreign policy ...Read more

Facebook blocks some, but antifa accounts are still up

From the Right / John Stossel /

I now make my living by releasing short videos on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

I assumed you who subscribed to my feed or became Facebook "friends" would receive that video every Tuesday.

Wrong! Turns out social media companies send our posts to only some of our friends. (That's why I ask for your email address. Then they ...Read more

New Countries at Sea

From the Right / John Stossel /

When political arguments aren't getting you anywhere, what can you do?

Start your own country!

Unfortunately, most of the world's land is controlled by rapacious governments unwilling to let others experiment.

But fortunately, that still leaves oceans.

If people move 12 miles offshore (or 24 miles in the case of the U.S.), they can, in ...Read more

Good News

From the Right / John Stossel /

I rarely watch cable news anymore. It's all hysteria, all the time.

CNN: "We are destroying the planet."

MSNBC: "The middle class is disappearing!"

President Donald Trump says drug trafficking "is worse than ever!"

I'm glad my favorite magazine, Reason, cuts through the gloom and tells us the truth:

There is less war and more food. We ...Read more
