We are the Republican Liberty Caucus of Oklahoma.
The OKRLC is dedicated to restoring limited government politics to the Republican Party. This caucus exists to (1) recruit pro-liberty Republican activists and candidates who actively promote the principles of individual rights, limited government, free enterprise, and the adherence to the rule of law, and (2) inform members of pro-liberty happenings in the state, and (3) provide a forum for event coordination, planning and communications.
Founded in 1991, the Republican Liberty Caucus works to advance the principles of limited government, individual liberty and free markets within the Republican Party and throughout America.

The main stream media is again pushing a false narrative that the latest property destruction will somehow stimulate the economy. Neither natural nor man made disasters stimulate the economy. The great French economist Frederic Bastiat used the parable of a broken window to point out why destruction doesn't benefit the economy.
In Bastiat's tale, a man's son breaks a pane of glass, meaning the man will have to pay to replace it. The onlookers consider the situation and decide that the boy has actually done the community a service because his father will have to pay the glazier (window repair man) to replace the broken pane. The glazier will then presumably spend the extra money on something else, jump-starting the local economy. (For related reading, see Economics Basics.)
The onlookers come to believe that breaking windows stimulates the economy, but Bastiat points out that further analysis exposes the fallacy. By breaking the window, the man's son has reduced his father's disposable income, meaning his father will not be able purchase new shoes or some other luxury good.
Thus, the broken window might help the glazier, but at the same time, it robs other industries and reduces the amount being spent on other goods. Moreover, replacing something that has already been purchased is a maintenance cost, rather than a purchase of truly new goods, and maintenance doesn't stimulate production.
In short, Bastiat suggests that destruction - and its costs - don't pay in an economic sense.
