As you survey the political landscape, what do you see? Support for capitalism and liberty or an intransigent proclivity for control and political power? Intellectual pragmatism or crony capitalism? The truth of history or the lies of an imaginary future? The support of economic growth or the oppressive regulations of socialism?

That credit belongs to the hardworking people of Arizona.

Americans are more confident in the U.S. economy than at any point in the past five years, thanks to surging home values, a brighter job market and record-setting stock prices. Stock averages last month extended the year’s explosive rally. Further gains in consumer confidence could help the economy withstand the effects of higher taxes and federal spending cuts that kicked in this year. Spending by consumers drives about 70 percent of economic growth.
Forget fears of sequestration. And never mind the hike in payroll taxes that shrunk paychecks.
