Note to conservatives: any Republican, even if he isn't your first choice, is better than any Democrat. We live in a two party system and thankfully so. We do not have a parliamentary system that can accommodate multiple parties each holding a few seats. Under such a system, you get your candidate elected, but they then have to join a coalition and make compromises. Compromise is a fact of life in politics. The question is: do you want to compromise your principles more with a Democrat Senate, or less with a Republican Senate?

Agree. From Rousseau to Marx to Lenin to Mao to the American Progressives, leftist ideology requires state power to achieve its utopian ends.

The New Left of the 1960's - as much as the Old Left - has always worshipped power. Their governing philosophy is based on coercion and force so how can it be otherwise? In fact the centurions who run our government, our academic institutions, our media are the New leftists of the 1960's all grown up. They aren't going to speak truth to power because they ARE the power.

Liberal Jews are liberals first and Jews as an afterthought. No different than liberal Christians pushing "liberation theology" - just socialism under the guise of Christianity. For most secular Jews in America, Judaism is just the Democratic Party platform plus a few holidays with God removed. For them gay rights and abortion are more important to defend than the survival of Israel - or the United States. The left serves as a substitute religion for many people in the West. .

Obama's Frugality, and Other Myths

Obama contradicts himself daily. 1. Bush tax cuts caused the deficit (not true). But he doesn't do anything about the tax cuts because he knows that would have made recovery almost impossible. 2. He blames "two unfunded wars" for the deficit. But during the 2008 campaign he called Afghanistan the "necessary war" and as President he has not only expanded Afghanistan into Pakistan, but has also attacked Libya and Yemen. War causes deficit under Bush, but not under Obama. 3. He blames the deficit on Bush overspending during 2009 which included TARP during the financial meltdown. But spending during recession is exactly what Obama proposed with Stimulus I and continues to push now. Spending causes recession under Bush, but cures it under Obama.

Arnold Schwarnegger kept his Austrian citizenship. Many Irish Americans are getting EU citizensip through Ireland so they can work in Europe. There is a long tradition of Americans serving in foreign militaries. More than 200 Americans served in the Lafayette Escadrille, a French fighter squadron, in World War I. Hundreds served in the "Eagle" squadrons of the Royal Air Force and the Royal Canadian Air Force before U.S. entry into World War II, or in the "Flying Tigers," which was part of the Chinese military. About 4,500 Americans fought in the Spanish Civil War, mostly in the famed Abraham Lincoln Brigade.

Mr Buchanan thinks that "J street" is pro-Israel??? He also thinks Bill Kristol is pro-Israel? Very disappointed to learn the Mr Buchanan did not educate himself on this matter. If J Street is really pro-Israel, then why would Bill Kristol need to debate ben-Ami from J street? J- street is a leftist lobbying group that places "peace" above Israel's survival. If they are pro-Israel, then so is Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama.

The 25 Best Quotes From Thomas Sowell

Poverty is man's default state. All of us are born without food, without clothing, without shelter. We need these things provided by our families until we can mature to the point we can provide them for ourselves. A problem arises when a large number of people in any society refuses to ever leave the dependent state.
