The Green New Deal will be a winning issue for Republicans

Can the president build the wall by declaring an emergency?

Whenever President Obama abused his constitutionally granted authority I called him out on it, and I intend to do the same with President Trump.

Government Bureaucracy turned a small town road into a nightmare.

There is very little that government bureaucracy does not turn into a nightmare.  A two mile stretch of road in a small Massachusetts town is a perfect example of this fundamental principle.  Twice in the recent past, a squabble between highway departments at two levels caused this stretch of road to be closed for hours, … Continue reading Government Bureaucracy turned a small town road into a nightmare.

The Progressive Reality Distortion Toolkit

It has been apparent to me for some time that progressives, along with the rest of the political left, have a view of United State that is drastically different from the true nature of this most remarkable nation.  This distorted view of America took form in Colleges and Universities back in the 1960s, and has … Continue reading The Progressive Reality Distortion Toolkit

During the past two weeks I saw two Conservative friends post rather derogatory items about Libertarians on Facebook, and Libertarians do the same about Conservatives.  That is just a small sampling of what I‘ve seen since I’ve been on social media.  At times it appears there is an all out war between the two sides … Continue reading Why do Conservatives and Libertarians squabble so much?

Five reasons why the Republicans lost the House

Unfortunately I was wrong when I predicted that the Republicans would maintain a narrow majority in the House of Representatives.  I found it difficult to believe that enough seats would switch to Democrat in order to flip the House given the drastic improvement in economic conditions since President Trump took office.   There are many factors … Continue reading Five reasons why the Republicans lost the House
