Don’t get complacent about the Democrats’ leftist lurch. It may work.

The left is getting lefter. There's no doubt the Democratic Party is pushing towards socialism and communism with "independent" Bernie Sanders leading the charge. I hear a lot of conservative commentaries welcoming this lurch. We need to be careful what we wish because, as we all know, voters can be swayed quickly with limited information … Continue reading Don’t get complacent about the Democrats’ leftist lurch.

Why Kamala Harris (or George Clooney) will be the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee

If you thought Trump’s $1 trillion infrastructure plan was too big, Democrats say, “hold my beer”

In recent months I've held my tongue regarding President Trump's upcoming proposal for a $1 trillion infrastructure plan. While it goes against my firm beliefs in reining in the federal government and reducing budgets rather than increasing them, it's premature to oppose it wholeheartedly. After all, his promise to make private investments the bulk of … Continue reading If you thought Trump’s $1 trillion infrastructure plan was too big, Democrats say, “hold my beer”

Of course parties should pick sides on abortion

Briefly... There seem to be a lot of Democrats complaining that the leader of the DNC announced there's no room for pro-lifers in his party.

The silver lining in the left’s incessant anti-Trump rhetoric

Democrats generally hate Donald Trump. That's to be expected; November was the most stinging and unexpected defeat their party has suffered in over a generation.
