Ivy League lawyers I have known have always been below average in legal skills and general intelligence. Perhaps that is why a federal government infested by them performs so poorly.

Jeb v. Hillary?

Jeb Bush supports stupid progressive ideas like Common Core and amnesty, which shows he is completely out of touch with his supposed base. Beyond that, he does not have the guts to make the attacks on Hillary which that witch deserves. We don't need another "Nice Guy" candidate like Mitt in the coming knife fight with the Democommunists.
Progressives (aka Communists) seem to dislike most of our Constitution, including most of our Bill of Rights. However, they love Congress' power to tax and spend, and they also love the Fifth Amendment's protection against self-incrimination.
It all boils down to integrity and the lack thereof. The Obama admin simply cannot tell the truth about anything, not Obamacare, not Benghazi, not the IRS, not Fast and Furious, nothing. Everything Obama says is a lie.
Progressives' conduct is easy to explain in broad terms: they have a statist agenda, but they have neither integrity nor shame. Businesses, jobs, and lives destroyed in pursuit of that agenda are merely unimportant collateral damage.

Federalizing 4-Year-Olds

The federal government has no legitimate role in education in the 50 states. The Dept of Education, Head Start, federal student loan and grant programs, No Child Left Behind, etc., all of it should be abolished.

The Lesson of Dunkirk

A better analogy is Grant vs McClellan. McClellan was not willing to fight. Grant was, and he won the war. The House has the power of the purse; they can win the war by digging in their heels against unnecessary and dangerous spending. Will Repubs be blamed for a gov't shutdown? Perhaps. But Obama's tactics during the last shutdown revealed his cruel and petty nature. And most Americans learned a shutdown does not hurt the general public. A shutdown would give Repubs a daily opportunity to expose the ridiculous wastes of taxpayer funds that they oppose.

The 'Trickle-Down' Lie

I believe the phrase "trickle down" was first used by Senator Robert La Follette in his failed 1924 bid for the presidency as the candidate of the Progressive Party. He came in a distant third. No doubt he used the phrase to condemn the Harding/Coolidge reductions in income taxes which helped fuel the prosperity of the Roaring Twenties.

The Republican party will do nothing to restore fiscal sanity and constitutional governance until its current weak leadership is replaced. Call it "internal strife" if you will, but I believe we need to replace ineffective dinosaurs in the Senate like McConnell, Roberts, and Cochran with younger men who are willing to fight the socialists and communists of the Democrat party instead of compromising with them. Ted Cruz has shown the way. Others must follow or get out of the way.

Why Neo-Isolationism Is Soaring

Almost 200 years ago President Monroe told Europe: we want friendly trade relations with all countries, and we will not get involved in any of your incessant wars; oh, and by the way, don't try to establish any new colonies on our side of the Atlantic. A wise policy then, and a wise policy now. Not isolationist, but not interventionist.
