The Wyoming GOP is basically excommunicating Liz Cheney. Good for them! Liz Cheney has ignored her own voters, her constituents. She doesn’t represent the voters. She’s gone off the deep end with her hatred of Trump. Some of it must be personal, because Trump criticized her father. But now she’s cozying up with the Democrats, Nancy Pelosi and the others in the House, they all called Dick Cheney, you know, Darth Vader, you know, said he was a war criminal, all that stuff. Liz Cheney is now helping the Democrats to try to destroy the Republican Party. Because that’s what this bogus January 6 commission is for. January 6 was not a national crisis. They’re using it as an excuse to go after political opponents, including regular people who voted for Donald Trump.
Also, let’s talk about how much Joe Biden sucks. His job approval is -10.8 in the Real Clear Politics average of polls. The ABC/Washington post poll from November 10 had him at negative 19. 38% approval to 57% disapprove. In the Washington Post ABC News poll!
Human history is full of the stories of peasants, subjects, and tribes. Yet the concept of the “citizen” is historically rare—and was among America’s most valued ideals for over two centuries. But without shock treatment, warns historian Victor Davis Hanson, American citizenship as we have known it may soon vanish.
In The Dying Citizen, Hanson outlines the historical forces that led to this crisis. The evisceration of the middle class over the last fifty years has made many Americans dependent on the federal government. Open borders have undermined the idea of allegiance to a particular place. Identity politics have eradicated our collective civic sense of self. And a top-heavy administrative state has endangered personal liberty, along with formal efforts to weaken the Constitution.
