The restaurant industry and the power of free enterprise
This is the miracle of freedom. This is the miracle of free enterprise. No one plans it. No one commands it. It just happens. It happens because people have a dream. It happens because people take a risk, because they sacrifice, because they pour everything they have into making their dream come true.
Thank God for the entrepreneurs and the dreamers. For the jobs and opportunities they create . . .
. . . and for the delicious food!

As the second largest private-sector employer in the country, America’s restaurants are an economic force, but that statistic doesn’t fully tell the story of the millions of individuals who are living the American Dream by working in our industry.

Mr. President, it IS because they’re smart. And determined and devoted and hard-working. Everything, it seems, that you dislike.
Ardently devoted to the cause of human freedom, he has worked at the confluence of politics, activism, and public policy for more than a decade. He co-wrote a ten-part series of video shorts on economics, and has film credits as a researcher on 11 political documentaries, including Citizens United's notorious film on Hillary Clinton that became the subject of a landmark Supreme Court decision. He is the founder of several activist endeavors, including AnyStreet.org (now a part of Western Free Press) and Liberatchik.com. He is currently the managing editor of and principal contributor to WesternFreePress.com.
