When masses of American voters are no longer interested in the “abstractions” and “intricacies” of their Constitution, our last hope may well be working the system beneath all the shouts and threats.
Trump’s decisive win Tuesday in his home state of New York makes a contested GOP convention a bit less likely, but there’s still a solid chance that he won’t win a majority of the delegates […]
The Constitution Party’s National Convention kicks off tomorrow in Salt Lake City, Utah. There the CP will chose its 2016 nominee for President. More interestingly to many observers of third part dynamics, however, is how the CP will handle the Trump phenomenon.
First some background on this year’s Convention for those who do not follow […]
I have long believed that there is a global power elite that manipulates the political process to its advantage. This strikes me as a “no duh” assertion. What separates me from some of my more conspiratorial brethren, is that I don’t believe this power elite is omnipotent. They cannot foresee or control for every contingency. […]
The Wisconsin Republican presidential primary takes place today, and it is looking like Ted Cruz will come in first. He is leading in all the polls there, although the lead is narrow, […]
The recent Jack Kerwick column dismissing Cruz’s challenge to the DC establishment is fascinating for its incoherence.
The conservative base of the Republican Party cannot understand how Donald Trump has ascended to being the leading candidate for presidential nominee despite all evidence showing he isn’t conservative. Because they can’t understand it they are angry which is making them blind to a disastrous political mistake they are making.
The foundation of conservatives inability […]
As the primary season winds down, the chasm opening up in conservative ranks is more surprising and distressing than any refinement of the Right/Left distinction.
Now that the Republican primary is essentially down to Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz, it’s time for conservatives to give some serious thought to the choice they now face. I believe it is fair to say that both Trump and Cruz are anti-Establishment candidates, and both have tapped into the anger of voters who […]
I remember it well. I was wiping down the kitchen counters when I heard his announcement on TV.
“He’s not serious,” I said to myself. “We go through this every four years. Even if […]
Donald Trump’s triumphant march through the South comes as no surprise to anyone who understands the nature of the Hispanic presence in southern towns and the “poor white” tradition of voting for the local strongman.
When did “low information” become the new political slur de jour? People need to stop. Even Ted Cruz, who should know better, foolishly used it to describe Donald Trump’s supporters. Well guess what, Einsteins, low information likely describes 95% of the voting population compared to political hobbyists who argue about politics on FaceBook, Twitter, political […]
When Donald Trump entered the Republican presidential race, many feared his penchant for off-the-wall statements would sink his chances. So far, they have had little effect, since he […]
Yesterday, I went to the polls and voted for Marco Rubio. Despite his lackluster performance in several primaries and his inexperienced attempt to take on Donald Trump, I felt, like many others, that […]
The simple fact is… these globalist media controlled circuses we shamelessly call “debates” are much more akin to a cat fight at the local tavern, after a couple liquored up street hookers get into a […]
A great stage magician will distract his audience with his right hand while performing his conjuring tricks with his left. Washington is nothing if not a magic show. Let me show […]
Constitutional conservatives were dismayed to learn that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia passed away at age 79 on Saturday, during a quail hunting trip in Texas. He had served on the […]
