Byline: Bob Riley, SPECIAL TO THE WASHINGTON TIMES
As conservatives and, more importantly, as Americans, we need to get back to understanding that competition is vital for the well-being of our people and our country.
Competition is good. It has been the basis of our American way of life since the beginning. When given the chance to compete, we thrive. Our industries innovate. Job growth is stimulated. Workers save money through lower prices. People have more control over their lives.
Yet today, we are moving in the opposite direction. We are backing away from competition, and in many aspects, our federal government is leading the retreat.
