Faithful Moderation

Let’s be faithful to our republic. Let’s be moderate in our politics. Obamacare was a step toward socialized medicine and socialized anything isn’t right in a capitalistic, free enterprise society, right? If we live in such society prizing freedom of choice and minimum government interference we should be wary of any policy that reduces the first or increases the second, staying faithful to our founding...

Nine Roads To Ruin

There’s a mindset in this country, a deeply entrenched belief held by roughly half of us that America isn’t good enough. In simplest terms its liberal versus conservative, or more tellingly haves versus have-nots. In reality its holding/improving status quo versus dismantling the basic structure of our republic and society, changing it into something new.

Last Last Hurrah?

In the article I highlight what I consider are basic differences between the liberal v...

It also seems most Americans don’t understand or appreciate how the dynamics of our economy and its overall success rest on these approaches, begging the question which offers the best...

Unfinished Business

I’ve believed for many years that Bill Clinton, with his low character, was one of the worst things that could happen to this country. He and Hillary together were a detestable duo as they dodged justice. Hillary by herself is the consummate white collar criminal hiding derelictions, perpetrating frauds, committing obstruction/misappropriation and, when expedient, dissembling, suborning perjury and lying to line her...
