And senators were to be ambassadors from the states to the Federal Government. They were to represent the state's interests and sovereignty.
This message has been indoctrinated into everyone since the 1960s: Government control is always the answer and you are entitled to other peoples’ money. Most news media, public schools, entertainment culture, universities, nonprofit community and government types push this view. The Republican party had better realize that it isn’t good enough to just run another campaign cycle as the ‘we are not the democrats’. Star Parker is correct.
Mr. Mitchell, you are totally correct. Americans would be much better off with more freedom in their healthcare choices. However, to move in that direction, we need political leadership to educate the people on this. Sadly, the republican party leadership is far from up to the task.
John McCain has his hand out to the Left and swings a hammer toward the Right. As long as he speaks for Republicans, the GOP will continue its spiral into the ground.

The Death of Genuine Debate

Hugh, what do you mean "Everyone knows it, and no one can fix it."? Precious few know and realize how leftist the culture of the U.S. has become. It can only be fixed when republicans - especially Bush/McCain republicans come to understand that Leftism is a religion and intolerant and must be confronted head on. 'Reasonable people can disagree' and 'it is good to have an open, honest debate' are concepts of the right, not the left.
Here is another way of stating Ms. Liebau’s point: The Left dominates the political discussion. Consequently, what is being asked now is not how to reduce mass murder; it is how this incident can be used to implement gun control. If we ask what can be done to reduce mass murders, then we have to start investigating issues like 1) Most of these shooters were on psychiatric drugs 2) The incidence of mass murders per capita in Europe is about the same as the U.S. 3) From 1950 all but one of the mass shootings have occurred in gun-free zones where people are rendered defenseless 4) If the Left demands banning of smoking on TV & movies to reduce the influence on children, then what is the influence of glorified violence in TV & movies?

The GOP and Round Two

Okay Hugh, I agree with your prescription for communication. However, the likelihood of the GOP getting a vision and consistently presenting it before the next deadline is about as likely as the moon flying out of orbit.

Obama's Thug America

Good work Mr. Shapiro. Now, if only the Senate Republicans and some House Republicans would wakeup and realize that the biggest threat to America is not Iran or some other outside threat, it is leftist culture that now dominates and has replaced American culture... centralized force and coercion replacing cooperation and consent.
I would add to the analysis. “Kerry voters were motivated more by negative feelings for Bush…" Bush spoke about issues in moral terms – good versus evil, right and wrong – a repulsive viewpoint for the Left. To the Left, guns, racism, poverty, and colonialism cause crime, not bad individual behavior and bad values. “Romney, like Kerry, depended on voters' distaste for the incumbent…” The Romney campaign ran as Mr. Fixit. He may have been more successful had he highlighted, not hid from the ideological differences. E.g. Do you, Americans, want to be ruled by centralized force and coercion of the Left or by more cooperative, compromising, and localized self government as envisioned by the founders?

A Yeshiva Boy and Christmas

I liked reading your reflections Mr. Prager. On this Christmas day the realization continues to sink in that my culture is being exterminated. Live-and-let-live America is disappearing. People have been bullied into saying the ridiculously generic “Happy Holiday” instead of “Merry Christmas”. The local bank features a prominent display in its lobby of the Hanukah menorah and Quansa traditions, but stuck in an obscure corner sits a “giving tree” with no mention of Christmas in its display. Today I celebrate, but am somber. Merry Christmas.
