Great news: Gov. Chris Sununu (RINO-NH) announced this morning that he will not be running for U.S. Senate next year against incumbent Democrat U.S. Senator Maggie Hassan. Unfortunately, Sununu said he will be running instead for re-election to a fourth (two year) term as governor. Max explains why Chris Sununu is a terrible, disgusting, oily, shifty politician and why Republicans should abandon him. (He likes abortion, for one thing.) The even better news is that Gen. Don Bolduc (Ret., US Army) is now the front runner for the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire. As Steven K. Bannon says, “Gen. Bolduc [is] a true MAGA hero.” For more information about Gen. Bolduc, listen to this interview on Ricochet’s Half Percent Podcast.
Also Ricochet member Vince Guerra is the first guest on American Maxim. Vince talks about the political prisoners being held in D.C. for wrongthink who have bad held behind bars without trial after January 6. Vince is an author so check out his website, vinceguerra.com.
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.
