RNC 2016 Ratings Fall Short of Expectations

  The Republican National Convention 2016 was  a great spectacle with four nights filled with a wide variety of speakers. However, the final night which featured Donald Trump’s speech where he accepts the Republican Party’s  nomination to be their candidate for the presidency of the United States, was not the ratings bonanza the networks expected.

#RNC2016- It is Day 4 of RNC 2016. Last night’s theme was “Make America First Again”. The evening included speeches from some of Donald Trump’s former 2016 GOP presidential ticket rivals including Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.

Donald Trump Picks Indiana Governor Mike Pence for VP

Donald Trump’s selection of Indiana Governor Mike Pence as his running mate was probably one of the worst kept secrets of the 2016 presidential campaign. The Vice President short list included NJ Governor Chris Christie, former General Michael Flynn and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. Reportedly, the choice ultimately came down to Pence […]

But Aren’t You Judging Me for Making a Judgment?

The phrase ‘Judge ye not’ is perhaps one of the most misunderstood and misapplied biblical concepts. Rarely does anyone want to confront sin, and rarely does a sinner want to be confronted. This presents a problem. As the avalanche of immorality in America continues consuming many professing Christians, the idea of judging has become even […]

Postal Service: Return to Sender

I don’t mind being polemical on occasion, but I generally don’t accuse my opponents of being “socialists.” American leftists generally focus on redistribution and regulatory intervention and socialism technically means that the government directly owns, operates, and controls various sectors of the economy (think, for example, of the difference between Obamacare and the U.K.’s system, where […]

America: Land Of The Bought And Paid For

OPINION – The Bernie Sanders campaign was right, America is bought and paid for. Elections, laws, and voters are purchased like Monopoly houses and traded back and forth between the political elites.

Untrammeled Majoritarianism and the Venezuelan Disaster

The economic and humanitarian crisis in Venezuela is the predictable result of statism run amok. And I will confess a bit of Schadenfreude has suffused my columns on the topic.

American printers were limited to producing newspapers, almanacs, sermons, addresses, pamphlets, primers and other lesser items. Most colonial printers had additional […]

Since Upper-Income Taxpayers Finance the Welfare State, Leftists Should Be Nice to Rich People
