Fourth of July travel to the nation's capital and other cities may be down from 2012 due to concerns about the economy and higher costs. But deal-savvy travelers can still snag lower travel prices for the holiday. (The Washington Times)

FEULNER: A life of liberty

In the eyes of the world, America stands for one thing above all: the promise of freedom. Even people who have never laid eyes on an American know of the promise our country represents. Published July 2, 2013

FEULNER: No reason for a victory lap over the debt

"After two years of harrowing confrontations in Washington," begins a recent article in the Washington Post, "the national debt is no longer growing out of control and policymakers from President Barack Obama to House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, have rushed to take credit."

FEULNER: Obamacare's unaffordable consequences

President Obama's signature health law is called the Affordable Care Act. In an ironic twist, though, it may prove prohibitively expensive for many low-income Americans. Published June 18, 2013

FEULNER: A fallacious farm bill

When you hear that Congress has taken up the "farm bill," what images come to mind? Farmers in overalls, driving beat-up tractors, trying to scratch out a living from the soil? A lot of politicians are counting on that. Published June 4, 2013

FEULNER: Memorial Day 2013

When we think of heroes, what comes to mind? Some fictional good guy flying around in the latest big-screen comic-book adventure? Perhaps, but with the arrival of another Memorial Day, I'd like to suggest someone more fitting: a U.S. Navy SEAL named Mike Monsoor. Published May 27, 2013

FEULNER: The recurring debt-limit drama

Get ready for a little deja vu from Washington. The federal government is about to hit the debt ceiling, now set at a whopping $16.8 trillion. Yes, again. It's like the Bill Murray movie "Groundhog Day" — only this time, unfortunately, no one is laughing. Published May 14, 2013

FEULNER: Red tape on the rise

"Do as I say, not as I do," goes an ironic saying worthy of Mark Twain. It's a phrase that is well suited to the political field. Published May 7, 2013

FEULNER: Delete the Internet tax

Do you do at least some of your shopping online? If you're like most Americans, the answer is "yes." This leads to my next question: Would you like to pay more for the items you buy? Published April 30, 2013

FEULNER: School choice is on the march

These days, freedom is under fire in many ways. It's nice to be able to report that in one area, at least, freedom is marching in the right direction: education. Published April 16, 2013

FEULNER: Taking the 'pulse' of missile defense

Almost everyone knows the acronym "EMT." We know that emergency medical technicians will arrive in a hurry if someone calls for an ambulance. Less familiar is the acronym "EMP." But if an electromagnetic pulse were to hit the United States, we would need a lot more than an ambulance to fix the problems that would result. Published April 9, 2013

FEULNER: Rebuilding a ruined city

Many are warning that the United States could become the next Greece. There is no need to look across the ocean to see a poorly governed area that is deep in debt and crumbling. Just look to Detroit. Published April 2, 2013

FEULNER: The battle of the budgets

Say you're running a business, and you find yourself awash in red ink. You realize it's time to retool your approach, and fast. So you ask two different employees each to come up with a budget. You'll go with whoever writes the best plan. Published March 19, 2013

FEULNER: A lesson in education hyperbole

Dire predictions about the fate of certain government programs hardly have been in short supply as sequestration-related budget cuts loomed. It was hardly a surprise, then, when Education Secretary Arne Duncan got in on the act. Published March 5, 2013

FEULNER: Exiting the road to ruin

"Sequester." It's a word that used to come up rarely. It nearly always referred to a jury being locked away to deliberate a verdict. Published February 26, 2013

FEULNER: The energy potential of fracking

Say you were a politician and there was a clean and abundant domestic energy source -- one that has the potential to create jobs and revitalize local economies. Would you do more to encourage it? Published February 19, 2013

FEULNER: America still means opportunity for all

Is America in decline? An honest review of the state of the union would show spiraling budget deficits, uncontrolled growth in government spending and persistently high unemployment levels. The impression of a once-great nation in eclipse is all too plain. Published February 12, 2013
