Dan Proft: 2020: A Choice Between Two Bernies

In a sense, the 2020 race is shaping up as a choice between two Bernies—a right Bernie and a left Bernie.

Do you like the Capitalist Bernie or the Bolshevik Bernie?

These two Bernies have neatly defined the choice in 2020.

On the one hand is Home Depot founder, the creator of a half-million jobs, and billionaire Bernie Marcus who is spending his golden years giving away his money to worthy causes.

On the other hand is Soviet devotee Sen. Bernie Sanders who’s spending his golden years the same way he spent his formative ones—giving away other people’s money.

Bernie Marcus is an unabashed Trump supporter undeterred by threats of a Home Depot boycott by Marxist mobsters.

Bernie Sanders is an unrepentant redistributionist who said on “Meet the Press” recently his goal is “to make the poor richer and the rich poorer.”

Bernie Marcus doesn’t believe helping people is a zero-sum proposition. Bernie Sanders believes everything should be free except freedom.

Which Bernie will you support in 2020?

Lanhee Chen: Standing for Liberty in Hong Kong

The free world recently mourned the 30th anniversary of China’s brutal crackdown on pro-democracy protestors in Tiananmen Square.

Although the dreams of a freer, more open China were crushed in June 1989, today in Hong Kong the voices of freedom are again speaking out against tyranny.

Hong Kong’s civil liberties and autonomy are at risk.

Youth protestors originally took to the streets to oppose legislation that would allow for extradition of criminal suspects to mainland China. Although the proposed law has been shelved, the protestors–numbering about two million at one point–continue to speak out against the government in Beijing and in favor of democracy and the preservation of liberty in Hong Kong.

There’s a temptation to ignore the cries for freedom, half a world away. But we should always stand with those who seek liberty and democracy, wherever that might be.

Jerry Bowyer: Trouble for Silicon Valley


The investor who bet on PayPal, bet on Facebook, and bet on Trump is now betting against Silicon Valley. I’m talking about Peter Thiel and his announcement that he’s leaving the Valley for Los Angeles. For years, Thiel has been ahead of the curve when it comes to investing and culture. And now he’s signaling possible trouble for Silicon Valley.

Thiel’s leaving because, in his words, Silicon Valley has gone from just liberal to a one-party state. They were always left-wing. Now they’re so radical that it’s hurt their ability to produce successful companies.

A city built on the principles of innovation and openness has sheltered itself from dissent. If they’re not open to new ideas, they can’t innovate, and if they can’t innovate, smart investors and entrepreneurs will find the places that can.
