The best editorial page you will find is

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

Jobs: We needed some good news in an otherwise grim week for the economy and stocks and got it in a blockbuster report showing 292,000 new hires in December.

Defense: The U.S. shipped a Hellfire missile to Europe in 2014 for a routine training exercise. The only problem is that the missile and its highly secret technology ended up in Cuba. Incompetence or something far worse?

Budget: Instead of cutting the budget and "public works," such as bicycle museums and bridges to nowhere, Congress has resorted to exotic accounting gimmicks to make it seem as if it isn't raising taxes or debt to fund roads.

Leadership: "In this present crisis," Ronald Reagan said at his inauguration, "government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem." But it took Barack Obama to get the public to believe it.

Nuclear War: By President Obama's Iran logic, the U.S. should stop worrying and learn to love North Korea's H-bomb. In the real world, what worked for four decades was mutual assured destruction.

Politics: No sooner did we praise Ted Cruz for standing up to Big Corn than word circulated that the Iowa front-runner was backtracking on his opposition to the ethanol mandate. Our praise is only slightly fainter, however.

Borders: The savage behavior of "migrant" revelers on New Year's Eve in Germany should remind Europe that borders matter. But decades of political correctness and moral relativism have brainwashed a generation.
