I love Walter Williams. I wish he would be more specific in who he means when he says "liberals". I am not aware of any policy differences in the area of race relations between the Republican Party leaders and the Democrats. I am not aware of any serious policy initiatives being pushed in a serious way by Republicans that would be different than the Democrats prescriptions. A long time ago I remember Jack Kemp having a lot of ideas and some of these coming to fruition in the Gingrich years. But that is a long time ago. In the past 20 years there has really been no policy disagreement between Republicans and Democrats about the inner city.

I can dream. Since the GOP now prefers Democrat legislation over conservative legislation its demise is the only path to restoring the country. The Whigs had to be eliminated by a third party with zero chance. The Republicans of 1856. When men had something between their legs.

Because it operates in league with the Democrat Party. Dumb question. Did you not notice the Republicans just gave Obama 110% of what he wanted in terms of funding for next year, giving the lame duck Democrats all their wishes for funding for 2015. For no reason. Obamacare funded, the IRS funded, the EPA funded, big bank and hedge fund bailouts funded, green energy funded. All with no debate, no amendments, not even allowing the bill to be read before the vote.

Pat, I usually agree with you. You are a very astute and honest historian. However, the vote for Speaker today will unleash a storm in the Republican Party that will end in its demise, which will be a good thing.

A completely useless column by the useless Rich Galen. He mentions the vote for Speaker as if it is a sidetone, and happily states that John Boehner will be Speaker again. He gives no reason for this. He does not supply any evidence of things Boehner has accomplished in four years as the leader of the majority in getting conservative policy passed, since there is no such evidence. Same for McConnell though he has not been the leader in the Senate. John Boehner is effectively now a lieutenant working for Barack Obama and doing all he can to destroy conservative initiatives. That is what Boehner just did in ramming through a bill for next years spending written by who knows who and read by nobody with no amendments allowed to fund every Democrat wish. That is our Speaker. He should be gone today. And "pundits" like Rich Galen who are so out of touch with the American people and even simple morality and ethics, should be gone as well.

This is now typical from Jonah. Nobody runs the government so there is no truth to the fact that the direction we are moving in is always where the New York Times editors want us to go. More recently, the Wall Street Journal is more interested in cheap labor and keeping the big banks afloat in other people's money and their wishes are being granted. We are on a steady march toward something worse than socialism but nobody is at fault - even Barack Obama who led the effort to destroy our freedom in the health care market place is just a passive guy, doing nothing so don't be upset. Jonah - you are too smart to be so stupid.

Iran Remains Our Biggest Threat

No, actually the Democrat and Republican Parties are our biggest threat. They are working together to scrap the Constitution and bankrupt us. There is no opposition party. They are destroying our country now. Iran is thinking about it.

George Bush, Republican, brother of Jeb Bush (hedge fund operator) installed Hank Paulsen, the CEO of Goldman Sachs as his Treasury Secretary. Paulsen was a known liberal and Goldman Sachs is probably the world's largest beneficiary of government subsidies through its incestuous and very murky (corrupt) relationship with the Federal Reserve. When the 2008 financial collapse occurred Hank Paulsen (Democrat) advised Bush that TARP had to be passed with zero Congressional review or the world would end. That was the beginning of the current phase of financial management where no Congressional review, hearing or normal process occurs. And all because George Bush, Republican, brother of Jeb Bush (Presidential wannabe) had to give the steering wheel for the economy to a crony capitalist whose mission was to maximize the benefits for Goldman Sach's and his Wall Street cronies. This is what happens when you have a Republican Party totally detached from serious intellectual conservative ideas.

This article is a very solid piece of ignorant propaganda from some fool who likes big government and detests the idea of the Constitution and limited government. The Republican Party leadership loves the big government thinking in this piece of excrement, and the Republican Party now exists to prevent conservatism from ever being implemented. The only current qualified candidates for President in the Republican Party - Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin - would be wise to join forces and start a new party which actually cares about saving America and is not totally corrupt, as is todays Republican Party.

The Republican Leadership is OK with every thing Obama has done. They even just agreed to fully fund Obama's last two years of tyranny, unless he decides he wants more than just two. Then, if he does, John Boehner will give him more money.

Obama can only do what he does because the Republican Leaders do not oppose him. In fact, the Republican Leaders support the Obama law breaking. They have done absolutely zero to stop it but rather have gone out of their way to give Obama the money he needs to break the law. The lawlessness is due more to the Republican acquiescence than to Obama criminality. There is no crime if the lawmakers do not object. John Boehner and Mitch McConnell and Karl Rove are the people responsible for this tyranny.
