At the March 6 Democratic Debate Bernie Sanders was asked by CNN host Anderson Cooper that if the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, was created by the government, “… why should the people of Flint trust that more government is the answer?” Sanders then went into his usual diatribe about corporations and Wall Street. When problems arise, Democrats, ignoring Einstein’s definition of insanity, propose more government solutions to government created problems. According to history, if a communist’s five year plan failed, the solution was for a new and better five year plan. If there is a problem today, the answer...Read More

It appears that many Republican voters have taken Jonathan Swift’s 1729 writing and updated it for today’s political scene: they have their own “Modest Proposal” to determine who will carry the banner for the party of Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan. America is no longer great. The Republican Establishment has betrayed “the little guy,” and political correctness is contributing to the downfall of American society. The 2016 Republican Primary started with a field of 17 candidates, and this field was said to be the deepest and best field of Republican candidates in recent memory. Now there are four candidates remaining, and if you still do...Read More
Why are Ben Carson and John Kasich still running for President? After finishing fourth in Iowa, eighth in New Hampshire, and last in South Carolina, Carson said that “This is just the beginning.” He then placed a distant fourth place finish in Nevada. The Carson campaign’s burn rate has left the campaign is a position where it is almost out of money. In retrospect, Ben Carson should never have run for President. Each day he stays in the race diminishes the image he has built for himself as a good and decent man. Carson’s appearance at the National Prayer Breakfast thrust him onto a...Read More
Let’s play a little game. Without looking ahead or looking up the answer, who said the following? There is a problem—the probable possession of weapons of mass destruction by an uncontrollable country, Iraq. If you guessed George W. Bush you would be wrong. Dick Cheney? No. Donald Rumsfeld? Try Again. Paul Wolfowitz? Wrong again. The person responsible for the above quote? Former French President and noted Iraq War opponent Jacques Chirac. During the February 13 Republican Debate in South Carolina, Donald Trump went off on former President Bush. Sounding like a deranged anti-war activist, he called the former president a liar. But what’s more...Read More
The most memorable moment from the most recent Republican debate was when New Jersey Governor and former federal prosecutor Chris Christie relentlessly criticized Florida Senator Marco Rubio as not being ready for President. Christie ironically criticized Rubio for rehearsing and repeating his talking points. Christie argued that executive experience will help a future president “solve problems” rather than simply giving speeches about problems. The idea that simply being a governor makes you qualified to be President is wrong. For example, Ronald Reagan was a great president, while Jimmy Carter–who served as the 76th Governor of Georgia–was a lousy president. The same goes...Read More
