The left claims to believe in “progress.” What they cannot tell you is what they are progressing towards. Saying “a better society” is a vague answer, because all people want to live in a better society; this is why we have elections and arguments about the way to shape society. Nobody has ever said “Vote for me and I’ll make everything worse.” For progressives the definition of progress revolves around two basic assumptions: the erosion of objective morality and ever increasing the power in the hands of the state.

When you think of human rights abusers around the world a few countries come to mind. North Korea, China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, our apparent new best friends in Iran and Cuba (just to name a few) are atop the world’s most oppressive countries.

President Obama’s much talked about recent trip to Cuba and Argentina are a microcosm of the left’s modern foreign policy.

In 2016 Barack Obama stands in front of a mural of mass murderer, racist and...Read More
The Republican Primary is now essentially a two horse race. Ted Cruz is the only man that poses a threat to Donald Trump. John Kasich needs over 100% of the remaining delegates in order to reach the magic number of 1,237, and someone needs to tell him that there are 49 other states outside of Ohio. He also finished fourth in a three man race in Arizona. Despite the fact that it is mathematically impossible for him to clinch the nomination, Kasich is staying in. He even suggested that Cruz should drop out, “…because he can’t win in the...Read More
No your eyes are not deceiving you and no that is not a typo. Everyday at Western Washington University you can see someone with a “Feel the Bern” campaign button or sticker on their laptop. There are people handing out Bernie Sanders campaign paraphernalia in front of the fountain in Red Square on a semi-usual basis. Still, even I was somewhat surprised when I saw what some were trying to do to our school, after all what are we, the University of Missouri? They have demanded… The creation of something called “College of Power and Liberation” The “De-colonizing” of the...Read More
