In the business world, the rear-view mirror is always clearer than the windshield.

– Warren Buffett, per Industry Week.

 

That’s Buffett quote is one that our publisher agrees on 100 percent. MHProNews’ publisher was a multiple award-winning history major, in high school and college.  So, there are days like today that he likes to have fun shaking it up and testing a reader’s knowledge.

The video below describes some policy positions.  Then it asks, which party was the president who held those policy views?  Spoiler alert, the answers may surprise you.

 

Praeger University videos routinely takes up hot button questions, puts an expert or well-known person on camera familiar with the topic, and uses nettlesome facts – often politically incorrect ones – and then layers on still more fascinating and thought-provoking facts.

As political independents, we stress the following.

  • We respect the right of people to be in whatever political party they wish, or no political party.
  • The reason we are not affiliated with any political party is because each, in our view, has held policy positions that are problematic for America, and out of keeping with the best interests of the vast majority of Americans.
  • On affordable housing, we believe that is a non-partisan issue. Thus, we relish the opportunity to spotlight occasions when Democrats and Republicans come together on the issue of manufactured homes as an important solution that is hiding in plain sight.  An new example of that can be accessed by the linked text-image below.

Political Posturing

Politicians and political parties say and do things that are often a mix of accurate and inaccurate information. Thus, we believe and strive to practice the time-tested notion of separating “Wheat from Chaff.”

When a person, party, or other organization is spinning reality, that’s a warning sign.  If someone knowingly distorts reality on subject A, why are they to be trusted on another topic?

Distortions of history or facts are usually done with an agenda in mind.  Put simply, the agenda is often designed to benefit one group vs. another.

President John F. Kennedy’s economic platform worked, as did former Democrat, Ronald Reagan’s.  Set aside the lightening-rod hype on both sides about President Donald J. Trump – another former Democrat – and one sees some similarities between the economic policies of all three of those presidents.

Clearly, there were differences between those three leaders too.

Fake news has become such a common mantra that awareness of just how agenda-driven various news outlets are is thankfully becoming more commonplace.  The graphic below is one way to check the possible political views that influence their reports.

Presidents are obviously people, and no president has been perfect.  But America has had some amazing leaders, that cross the left-right divide.

There is much to learn from these leaders.

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”

–        Theodore Roosevelt

 

Good public policy matters.

It’s anyone’s guess if voter ire and feedback during the August recess will help the GOP controlled Congress bridge their own internal gaps on pending promises, such as tax reform.

But it may motivate professionals who vote if they better understood what was in the desired Trump plan.

The video on this page breaks it down in simple visual bites.  The Daily Business News’ recent report on the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) position on this issue, is linked here.

It is worth mentioning that both Democratic President Kennedy and Republican President Ronald Reagan did tax reform that resulted in lower rates, which boosted the economy and rapidly lead to more revenue for the federal government.
