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.
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.”
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.
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.

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.
