Golden Opportunity

Democrats Go for the Gold

America’s response to the coronavirus pandemic has been unprecedented.  The complete shutdown of our national economy is truly historic.  Not since World War II have Americans experienced such widespread anxiety, unrest, and economic hardship.

A Medical Necessity, a National Catastrophe

The economic paralysis we’re suffering today is catastrophic, but it’s just what the doctor ordered. Looking back, it’s clear the medical profession was caught off guard by the coronavirus.  When it first appeared in China, the medical community here was, at most, cautiously concerned.

The Shroud of Socialism

The shroud of socialism won’t be lifted with Bernie’s defeat

  Democrats and Republicans seem to agree on one thing:  Bernie Sanders cannot defeat President Trump in the general election.  While his raucous crowds and early campaign victories suggest widespread support, a recent Gallup poll confirms that 53 percent of Americans surveyed would not vote for a socialist presidential candidate.

Race-Baiting Democrats Snare One of Their Own

As Democrats embark on their determined quest to unseat President Trump, it’s no coincidence that our national discourse has turned to issues like school busing, racial injustice, and the evils of slavery.  While Democrats seem eager to exploit those issues for political advantage, most Americans believe they belong in the history books. Slavery was never …
