Hands Down - The best editorial page you will find . . .

is Investor's Business Daily.  IBD publishes easy to read editorials that show the obvious benefits of free markets and capitalism.  A sampling:

  • War On Terror:  Top brass — both now serving and retired — say that President Obama's strategy is likely to fail against the Islamic State. Clearly he has put his presidential legacy before our national security.
  • Politics:  Two Republicans forced five Democrats to break ranks on President Obama's executive amnesty plan. As elections beckon, voter sentiment counts for something.
  • Eastern Europe:  Addressing a rare joint session of the U.S. Congress, Ukraine's leader warns, like Churchill before him, of a growing and resurgent menace that has committed crimes in his country and threatens the West.
  • War On Terror:  President Obama's strategy to defeat the Islamic State is deficient in many ways, but none more than its failure to attack the terrorist threat at its source — the Muslim Brotherhood.\
  • Politics:  Amid applause, President Obama has made fighting Ebola in Africa a military priority, to protect U.S. health. So why is he doing nothing about the raft of new diseases that may be rolling in from our unguarded border?
  • Health Reform:  It seems the administration had been exaggerating the number of people enrolled in ObamaCare to the tune of about 700,000. We're shocked! Shocked!
  • Scandal:  Democrats claim it's been asked and answered, but the question of why four Americans had to die in a diplomatic outpost in a terrorist haven with inadequate security and no plans for rescue has not.
