The verdict, coming barely a week before Election Day, increased Stevens’ difficulty […]

A slight profundity

A question was asked of me recently: “Why don’t libertarians and real conservatives win elections”. Simple really. True libertarians and conservatives share the same electoral disadvantage: True libertarians and real conservatives, CANNOT win electorally, in a climate where everyone is allowed to vote; and that “everyone” includes the huge politically created classes (both underclass, and […]

I firmly believe that situations like the below are quite common in our government, at all levels. That being said, this one is particularly conspicuous. Joe Biden, breaking ranks with […]
