The best editorial page you will find

is easily Investors Business Daily.  IBD publishes easy to read editorials that show the benefits of Free Markets and Capitalism.  A sampling:

Economic Systems: The alarmists keep telling us their concern about global warming is all about man's stewardship of the environment. But we know that's not true. A United Nations official has now confirmed this.

States: Illinois entrepreneur turned governor Bruce Rauner ends the practice of forced union dues for government workers who don't want to join a union as he pursues right-to-work zones to promote growth.

Brain Trust: The new Republican-controlled Congress can fulfill voters' demand for competence and integrity in Washington even if President Obama vetoes all reform legislation sent to him for signature. Mr. Obama cannot veto the truth — and when told, truth is the ultimate change agent for good.

War on Terror: The United Arab Emirates resumed bombing runs against IS in solidarity with Jordan, which has united under King Abdullah to destroy it. That's leadership. It's obvious that this is what the war has lacked.

Political Correctness: The Army has announced that as a result of Congress' making victims of attacks by foreign terrorist acts eligible, the Fort Hood victims will get Purple Hearts, and civilians will get Defense of Freedom medals.

Culture: In remarks at a prayer meeting Thursday, President Obama implied Christianity, just like Islam, is filled with people who "hijack religion for their own murderous ends." This is the progressive disease of moral equivalence at its worst.
