Amen. Great reminder. And true for all Christians. Also our source of hope. This is not our home. One day we will be with him forever.

I would not put it exactly as Big O7 did but there is much in there I agree with. I also note that back in the late 70s I worked for CETA YETP (Youth Employment Training Program) in rural downstate IL. My role was to "develop jobs". So I walked around to farmers and asked if they might hire kids during the summer. It was common for them to say yeah they would love to but they could not afford to pay the minimum wage, which at the time was $3.35. If they could pay $2.00 they would find some things that would be handy to have done but weren't urgent. The minimum wage was too high for them pay for work they otherwise might have. A clear example of the minimum wage taking away jobs. My experience of their heart in wanting to give the kids work but feeling unable to do so was the beginning of me moving from a leftist to a conservative. By the way they did hire kids, and adults, for other jobs that paid above the minimum wage such as walking beans and de-tasseling corn. Much harder jobs that most teens can't do.
I just posted a comment and then read Dr. Sowell's second installment on Cruz Control. This shows why he is a pundit and I am not. I quote, "The Republican establishment has more than a tactical deficiency, however. They seem to have no principle that they offer or follow with any consistency. Their lack of articulation may be just a reflection of that lack of principle. It is hard to get to the point when you have no point to get to."
This is your second article criticizing people for not uniting against leftists. But if you look at the comments there are many if not most that point out that Republicans have no credibility that they will do anything positive. As a republican why don't you tell us what the plan would be? How would having both houses move liberty forward? As thoroughly noted here most republicans are neither libertarians nor conservatives of another stripe. They seem to believe in the slower growth of big government. You criticize disunity but why should people unite behind a party opposed to their beliefs? I am not optimistic about our countries future and don't see the answers-but although you are preaching sincerely- I only here you saying "Don't let them win".
Thank you for this great introduction to a man I hope to learn more about.

While you make a number of sound comments about the problems with Mr. Cruz's strategy. I think you fall victim to your own petard. You note, "What is Ted Cruz’s plan to win? I don’t know. I really don’t". Well what is your plan to win? Your strategy seems to be don't alienate in order to have the Republicans win. But from experience we know that when Republicans have won they do not make any serious effort to achieve conservative goals. When they held both houses and the presidency government grew, a lot. They also make no serious effort to sell conservative ideas. They always tell you they must live to fight another day. But they fight about as often as McCLellan. So I think that there are a lot of people like myself, wingnuts to some, who might tend to vote republican but will no longer do so for someone who won't fight. We are not unwilling to be strategic but we want someone who will at least try to win. -And having principle IS a plan.- And yes better to have tried and failed-willing to lose the senate- than to never tried at all. While I don't agree with the tone of a lot of the comments here I do not see that you have made your case.
Thank you Mr. Fontova for your great work, in this article and many others, in educating people about the Castros and Che Guevara. I hope many people read and learn.
For boys or girls having a two parent family is the most critical element to their successful upbringing. There are numerous factors that are diminishing that including lots of planks in the democratic party. But having said that I don't really think the case has been made for a White House Council. What does any White House council achieve other than to think of ways that the government should intrude more into the family? I would prefer that the government help us less. If we think it is unfair that there is a council for girls and not for boys let's get rid of the council for girls.
