Power Line pointed to an opinion piece at the Hill, comparing news media and their coverage of the 1968 influenza pandemic with media coverage of COVID-19. While the Hill piece provides good factual support for the wildly different coverage, I believe the author gets it wrong in claiming the media personalities then would not weaponize […]

After the revelations about Hillary Clinton’s primary fix (take that, Bernie Sanders!), and the made-up Trump “dossier”, it’s time to ask the question—should the Democrat National Committee (and God knows how many state Democrat organizations) be subjected to the RICO statute?  I think so, and here’s why: We have to save this country, and the […]

Since most of us are not willing to actually pay the Wall Street Journal just to get one decent article or opinion column out of every fifty, I was sure pleased when Zero Hedge decided to print Kimberley Strassel’s column on, “Who Paid For The ‘Trump Dossier’?” It is very interesting and informative. While we’re […]

The definition of Socialism has always been that the means of production is owned, not privately, but by the community as a whole. The common use of the word Socialism seems to be that the government taxes the wealthy and provides free stuff for everyone else. That’s very different. And it’s pretty much Marx’s motto for Communism, […]

Why I Vote Republican

 

I am not arguing that all of you should vote Republican.  I am (1) giving an explanation of why I do, and (2) asking those who don’t why they don’t.

The Explanation: I could put it this way: on life, marriage, religious liberty, the meaning of the Constitution, rule of law, separation of powers, the national debt, health insurance, and economic growth I do not trust the Republicans to be correct; but on these things I do trust the Democrats to be wrong. As such, I vote for the least bad option in the generals, and I vote for the best option in the primaries.

What now for the democrat party? Are they still relevant as a party? Is the democrat party dead? Is liberalism dead? Will they work across the aisle with the new, overwhelmingly victorious majority? Will they change? Evolve? Will they take a long hard look at what the party stands for, follow the will of the […]
