If that’s not who we are, then who are we?

“We cannot tolerate illegal immigration and we must stop it.” “We continue to firmly oppose welfare benefits for illegal immigrants. We believe family members who sponsor immigrants into this country should take financial responsibility for them, and be held legally responsible for supporting them.” “…we must remain a nation of laws.” “In 1992, our borders …

Yes, America can still be saved

On December 25th, the New York Times published an editorial by liberal columnist, Paul Krugman. It was entitled “America Is Not Yet Lost,” and it was a message wrapped in hope, but filled with hate. Still fuming about the 2016 election and its aftermath, Krugman ranted that Donald Trump has proven himself unfit for office …

Among many other issues, they were profoundly disturbed by his admitted friendships with Marxist professors and assorted socialists and anti-American zealots. His notion of wealth redistribution was also, at that time, a …

Just how has the Uranium One scandal been “debunked”?

Mention the words, “Uranium One,” and many Americans shrug their shoulders, either blissfully unaware of the controversy or convinced that it’s a Republican ploy targeting Hillary Clinton and the Democrats. Others see a major scandal with far greater impact than Watergate. They see the covert sale of 20 percent of our uranium deposits to a …

The Great 2017 Statuary War

The war currently being waged against Confederate monuments seemingly came from nowhere, but it’s quickly becoming a fierce and brutal conflict.

If Republicans fail, will single payer be next?

As the Affordable Care Act, Obamacare, continues to disintegrate, and Republicans endlessly fumble their plan to repeal and replace it, support is growing in this country for a single payer system. That concept, originated by Democrats and the left, has now begun to spread, possibly helped by the new entitlements Obamacare provided. The Pew Research …

Resuscitating the healthcare debate

A hundred years ago, our healthcare system was pretty simple.  There were no government regulations, and the few doctors there were, offered their services in exchange for whatever payment they could negotiate with their patients.  Like most of our economy, it was a free market system.  The term, “universal healthcare,” was non-existent. Since then, with …
