I said I wasn't coming back to TH, I likely won't have time, since I must help my family prepare for what's coming next. But I did so want to leave you with the following explanation of exactly what took place last night....Penned circa 1840's: “A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years.” Alexis de Tocqueville

Most people, Sage, are scratching their heads and saying "Alexis who"? Our history is not taught in schools anymore.

RE: "Help My Family"
My response:
Sage, you will also be "helping your family" by staying with townhall.com. We all help our families.
"For if you help (or love) only those that love you, what kind of love is in you? For robbers and pagans also love their families."; the words of Jesus Christ, New Testament.

Mia Love’s speech at the Republican National Convention completely changed the game for her in the race for Utah's 4th District. Up until her ‘coming out party’ at the RNC, Love was a heavy underdog, behind by double digits in the polls against her Democratic opponent. After the Convention, however, she closed the gap and even held a slight lead in the two most recent polls, which changed RCP’s rating of the race to toss-up.

Unfortunately, with 100 percent reporting in, the GOP favorite fell short of defeating Democratic Rep. Jim Matheson by roughly 2,800 votes as of...
