    Another Victory for Moderates

    No, I am not talking about the latest Tea Party primary loss, although we know how to reverse this trend.  David Brat’s defeat of Eric Cantor proved that the right message and hard work on the ground by local activists can defeat even a well …

    Race Baiters Make Appeal to Low Information Voters

    In an election year delivered to Republicans and tied up neatly with a bow, what else could we expect?  The mass of illegal entrants at the border is not a shock to this administration.  It is a plan well executed.  I know, we are supposed …

    People or Principles

    It must be human nature which causes us to support a person when we mean to support a principle.  Writers encourage this because without readers the whole exercise of writing is rather pointless.  Readers encourage it too because, in all honesty, there is a lot …

    The First Libertarian President

    Tea Party Toolbox

    The Case for Inequality

    According to the professional hand wringers on the left, America has a crisis of inequality.  It’s a big deal.  Some people have more stuff than others.  This drives the left crazy.  Truly they are so close they need not be driven; they could walk from …

    Al Qaeda Is Not the Enemy

    Upon reading this title, anyone familiar with me or my writing will assume that they are witnessing the day AronSpeer finally went ‘round the bend.’  But I ask you to reread the title, emphasizing the only un-capitalized word; Al Qaeda is not the enemy.  This …

    Time for a Timeout

    Conservatives of every hue and stripe appear to be at each other’s throats these days.  Whether the differences are tactical or philosophical is important.  Philosophical differences should occasion public debate, resolution or possible separation.  Tactical differences should not.  Tactical differences should be worked out in …
