WELCOME TO FLYOVER PATRIOTS

Welcome to Flyover. We celebrate the values that many of the political and media elites abhor. They criticize middle America – “Flyover Country” – but we take the opposite view. We believe that patriotism, liberty, and the Constitution are the foundations of American exceptionalism. We invite you to visit often.

How Much Reality Must We Ignore to Be Leftists?

Prevarication is the coin of the political realm. No political party or ideology has a monopoly on it. But when one party is in charge in Washington, and so much of their agenda hangs on Americans believing falsehoods, it is important to point it out.
The Democratic Party has lost a lot of support among middle-class working voters. They have lost some support among blacks and Hispanics. They are increasingly, compared to Republicans, the party of the rich. They depend on an ability to cobble together a loose coalition of groups, who have little else in common, on election day.

Don’t Be Afraid to Defend Your Views

As we’ve said before, neither major national political party fully deserves our fealty. However, you do have only one choice if you believe in constitutional government, individual rights, freedom, capitalism, and American exceptionalism.

Third parties? Maybe someday. But if you vote third party for president, at this point, you are throwing your vote away. Sorry, but that just happens to be the truth. In presidential contests, as in choosing a political party, Americans face a binary choice. If you want to be relevant, to matter, you have to side with the Democrats or Republicans. That doesn’t mean you have to be blindly loyal, but it does mean you have to have a default position for or against one side.

The Liar In Chief

Among the more ironic, and indefensible, attacks on the Trump Presidency is the assertion – repeated so widely it is almost never challenged – that Trump lies more than others. That is nonsense. Not to say he hasn’t lied – so have you – but he is no more reprehensible in this regard than his opponents and peers.

“How do you know a politician is lying? His lips are moving.”

“What do you call a thousand politicians lying on the bottom of the ocean? A good start.”

If You’re Ever Going to Defend
Free Speech, The Time is Now

Speech is the foundation of our republic.

Of all the criticisms that have been made about me – it is not a short list – no one has ever suggested I am shy about expressing my opinion. It has been said I can walk into an empty room and start an argument. There is probably some truth to that.
However, I will never have to regret I was unwilling to take a stand. No one says “Why won’t Rob just tell us what he thinks?”

Plus, in politics, over-reaction is often the coin of the realm.

Today, we face political developments so damaging to the fabric of our republic that exaggeration is hardly possible. Do you believe the damage being done to our nation, in particular to the First Amendment, is defensible? If so, with all due respect, you are either uninformed, don’t understand the essential role of freedom in our nation, or are actively seeking to bring it down. There are no other options.

The Left and Democratic Leaders Have Given Up On Equal Opportunity

Our social and political environment is changing so quickly and dramatically it would have been unthinkable even a year ago. Every conservative who cautioned that the left is assaulting our freedom, championing censorship, and supporting racist policies has been proven correct. It is no longer deniable.
It’s Official – Liberal/Progressive Democrats Are America’s Fascists. And they aren’t even subtle about it.

For many years, those of us who engage in political discourse on a regular basis, and lean to the conservative side, have been accused of being reactionary. Unfortunately, our predictions that the Biden Administration will govern from the extreme left have been proven true. It didn’t take them long.

We have reached an inflection point. It is official: the leadership of America’s leftist Party has completely abandoned any pretense of supporting freedom, equality, or fairness. They have become the personification of a new socialist fascism and they no longer even pretend to favor equality of opportunity.

U. S. Healthcare is the Envy of the World

As we discussed previously, critics of America’s healthcare system are quick to point at our mediocre life expectancy as proof of the flaws in our system. As is so often the case, even a modest amount of exploration reveals the flaws in that observation. As we will see, we have the world’s highest life expectancy, when confounding factors, such as homicide rates and transportation deaths (primarily vehicular accidents) are taken into account.

US Healthcare Provides the Highest Life Expectancy in the World

PART ONE

If we were asked what single issue presents the greatest clarity regarding the main differences between constitutional conservatives and leftists, it would be hard to come up with a better example than healthcare. More than any issue, how a candidate or elected official discusses healthcare gives you a window into their political soul.

Our health is perennially ranked, based on surveys of American values, at the very top of our concerns. Nothing matters more to us, as a nation, than health and safety. It is therefore logical that, in recent years, there has been a great deal of criticism of the effectiveness of the U. S. healthcare system. As has been widely reported, ours is the costliest in the world. However, many critics assert that we do not deliver quality of care.

We’ve Ditched Twitter – and Glad to have Done It

Looking at the Flyover page, you may have noticed that there are headers for Twitter threads for Rob and myself. The feeds are gone. We both quit Twitter. Good riddance.

In my case, I ended my account when oddball Jack Dorsey cancelled President Trump’s account. That was the last straw. Prior to that, beginning in July 2020, my 15,500 thousand-strong account was deboosted by Twitter. I wasn’t being singled out, though.

Two Questions for Biden

NY Post says President Biden is “Glazed and Confused”

The past few days have presented a cornucopia of examples of precisely how different things are in the still relatively new Biden Presidency. A couple of examples, with more to come.

First, consider the events of June 6. The anniversary of D-Day. This is a good time to remember – it can be argued it was the most important military action in world history – the events that began to turn the tables in WW II.
