Progressives are a Faithful lot. They live, and die, by a Creed. Welcome to the Church of State.
We saw the religiosity at work again recently in the United Kingdom. We saw Martyrdom.
When the voters toss out a Left-wing political party (two, actually) for having moved […]
Lincoln Chafee, a former Republican senator from Rhode Island, announces his support for Obama […]
Rush Limbaugh effusively praises egregious phony Marco Rubio, astonishingly defending that praise with toxic acquiescence in preemptive surrender to contempt for the Constitution and rule of law. The next election will probably be the last chance to repel the relentless march toward complete leftist tyranny. An honest Republican […]
I was just about to write a column about Donald Trump being the only potential Republican candidate I knew of to forcefully come out against fast-track, and then I read this article. Carly Fiorina has now come out against it, as has Mike Huckabee. Fiorina and Huckabee are already declared candidates and Trump seems nearly […]
I consider myself an across-the-board conservative but of the paleo sort, therefore I tend to disagree with mainstream conservatives on a few issues, most notably foreign policy. I say this to indicate that I am not a single issue voter. I have several issues that I prioritize in importance when evaluating a candidate. A discussion […]
Americans have a deep ambivalence about the role of First Lady.
In a 1992 segment of Nightline correspondent Jackie Judd observed,
Americans are most comfortable, for example, with first ladies who are gracious, stand […]
Larry Kudlow is a man whom I generally respect. He has a good handle on matters of business and economics and therefore deserves attention. But sometimes even the best of us goof up. That was the case in Kudlow’s recent column in which he challenged Hillary Clinton to, as he put it, “Return to a […]
“It’s the economy, stupid!” The weirdest thing about the onrushing 2016 presidential cycle is the scarcity of a GOP economic growth theme. Missing, too, is a serious growth agenda. That gap — not demographics, nor electoral college math — is the GOP’s most serious deficiency in its […]
Through illegal immigration and so-called refugee resettlement programs, both importing a new breed of American “citizen” and a new crop of voters, the U.S. elections are now heavily influenced by foreign anti-American interests. The voter demographics of our country are being intentionally and purposefully altered. But that […]
From Louisville, Kentucky, U.S. Senator Rand Paul declared his candidacy for the presidency. The run-up had all the pageantry now associated with such affairs: prayers, recitations of the Pledge of Allegiance, a rendition of the Star Spangled Banner, and well-produced campaign videos galore.
There also was something […]
It came as a surprise to no one when Hillary Clinton announced on Sunday that she was formally entering the race for president. Most political observers think she will easily win the Democratic nomination, since few Democrats dare to challenge the Clinton dynasty.
The former First Lady, […]
On Monday night, Florida Senator Marco Rubio became the third major Republican candidate to announce he was officially running for president, after Senators Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. He made the announcement from the Freedom Tower in downtown Miami, considered the Ellis Island of Florida, where […]
Last month, Texas Senator Ted Cruz became the first major Republican candidate to formally announce his run for president. A favorite of the conservative base, he deliberately chose to make his announcement at Liberty University, opening with, “I am thrilled to join you today at the largest […]
At sometime approximately the same as when this column is being written Hillary Clinton is expected to formally announce her candidacy for President of the United States in an informal manner – Twitter, as opposed to the traditional speech, as used by Rand Paul and Ted Cruz. […]
Not so long ago, Americans placed little faith and trust in ambulance chasers (aka lawyers) or politicians, and wisely so according to our Founders who had no faith or trust in any person seeking power and dominion over others. Now, too many Americans place all of […]
Announcing his 2016 presidential run at Liberty University last month, Ted Cruz, the first out of the starting gate, excited fiscal conservatives with his call for a flat tax to replace the IRS. Support for the concept has been picking up steam recently, due to the […]
On Tuesday, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul announced he was officially entering the Republican primary race for president. He is the second candidate to announce after Senator Ted Cruz of Texas. His speech was full of Reaganesque declarations, practically declaring a war on Washington, D.C. “We have come […]
The author interviewing Rand Paul.
Libertarianism no longer seriously can be considered marginal. It has emerged as an important part of our public discourse.
Sen. Rand Paul writes, “They say the libertarian moment has arrived. If you want to understand and be part of that moment, read David […]
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker
Fifty years ago being a Republican in Texas was a “hangin’ offense,” or at least it was according to one speaker at the March 28, 2015 Harris County GOP Lincoln – Reagan Dinner. But along came a […]
