The best online editorial page that you will find -

is easily Investor's Business Daily.  IBD published outstanding easy-to-read editorials that detail the benefits of free markets and capitalism.  A sampling:

Nuclear Terror:  The president reportedly plans to bypass Congress should any weapons pact be reached with Islamofascist Iran. That's because even if Democrats keep the Senate, it isn't likely to approve a bad deal.

Politics:  More than two dozen House Democrats are pushing the Senate to revive and ratify the nomination of Dr. Vivek Murthy to a critical post, but helping to fight deadly disease is not what they have in mind.

Subprime Redux:  Mel Watt's easy credit crusade is now off and running. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac's chief regulator has officially lowered lending standards for the entire mortgage industry. Here we go again.

Race-Baiting:  The Obama regime has used a dubious discrimination theory to shake down home and car lenders for $1.1 billion and counting. Finally, the high court may step in to stop this witch hunt.

Mismanagement:  It misuses the U.S. National Guard by dispatching it to Africa to fight the Ebola virus. After importing the disease, the Obama administration exports more Americans, risking their exposure.

Tyranny:  Reports say Houston's city hall is demanding that five local pastors turn over sermons in which they talked about homosexuality, gender identity or the city's first openly lesbian mayor. Call it the Texas Inquisition.

War On Terror:  The Islamic State somehow now possesses the weapons of mass destruction that Saddam Hussein never had. If the U.S. had finished the job in Iraq, neither IS nor its WMD would exist.

Politics:  It didn't take long for Democrats to try to pin the blame for the spreading Ebola crisis on Republican-imposed "budget cuts." The effort clearly smacks of desperation. But it also happens to be completely false.
