He even referred to Trump contemptuously as an emperor just last month… Keep Reading

The age-old axiom of “actions speak louder than words” is now more relevant than ever in this discussion. These comparisons are not only specious,… Keep Reading

Instead of considering the alternative – freedom – they continue to look for government-created solutions when they are the ones who created the problems in the first place.

The major tenant of socialism is that a governing power makes all the important decisions on behalf of those whom they claim to help. Socialism operates on the presumption… Keep Reading
