Ukraine's Crisis, Not Ours

Mr. Buchanan asks, "What kind of democracy is it, when the legitimately-elected head of state can be forced out by mobs?" Unfortunately, that is EXACTLY what democracy is: unlimited majority rule, and ultimately rule by mob. That is why our Founding Fathers explicitly rejected democracy, and created for us a constitutional republic (rule of law).

Lessons for Shove Guv Andrew Cuomo

If I might be so bold as to make a suggestion to Mrs. Malkin: the next time some liberal refers to "extreme" conservatives, she might ask that person, "What are you using as your reference point? It's certainly not the Constitution of the United States."
Congress might show some spine if the public was in favor of reigning the president in. However, most of the electorate seem to fall in the category of low-information voters, and the establishment press does not appear inclined to inform them. This is the same establishment press that used to warn us of the dangers of the imperial presidency under Richard Nixon. Barak Obama today practices usurpations and abuses of power that probably never even entered into Richard Nixon's mind, and the establishment press is silent.

Our Clueless President

I'm not completely sure I agree with Mr. Reagan. If the president's real objective is to destroy the Constitution and individual liberty in this country, and to "fundamentally transform" us into a totalitarian Third World country, he may well know exactly what he is doing.

Obama Bullying Nuns (Part 1)

I certainly agree with all the observations of Mr. Norris and the commenters who have supported him. However, I believe there is another aspect to this, that no one seems to be noticing. I think this assault on faith-based organizations is part of a much broader plot by the Obama Regime to destroy any alternative to government-provided health care in this country.

I once heard that each year, about 1.5 million pre-born babies are aborted. During the same time period, 1.6 million couples who would like to adopt a child cannot, because none are available. Why do you not consider this option? As to the cliché, "every child ought to be a wanted child," apparently no one wants homeless people. By the same logic, you could call for all of the homeless to be killed.

Why Neo-Isolationism Is Soaring

We had no real reason to enter World War I. When we declared war, in October 1917, the war in Europe had actually been at a stalemate for a number of months, and was on the verge of ending in a negotiated settlement. Then we came in, and threw everything out of kilter. We made possible the Treaty of Versailles, which made World War II inevitable. In 1938, Winston Churchill publicly stated that if we had not entered the war, it would have ended a year sooner and up to a million lives would have been spared, because peace would have been made with Germany. If that had happened, Churchill continued, Russia would never have fallen to the Bolsheviks, the Italians would never have turned to fascism, and Hitler would never have risen to power in Germany.

I have to disagree with the term "isolationism." An isolationist country closes in on itself, and tries to pretend the rest of the world does not exist. Prior to World War I, our policy was not isolationism, it was NON-INTERVENTIONSM. We actively sought good relations with all nations, but when hostilities broke out, we minded our own business and did not get involved unless our own interests were directly threatened.

Socialist or Fascist

Actually, both fascism and communism are two varieties of socialism. Adolph Hitler once said to Joseph Stalin, "A good Nazi will always make a good Bolshevist, and a good Bolshevist will always make a good Nazi. There is more that unites our two systems, than that separates them."

The Great Obama Blunder

Thomas3336 Wrote: May 31, 2012 8:55 PM
I agree with everything Mr. Reagan said. However, I wonder if there might be more going on. Might this attempt by the Obama Regime have been one part of a much larger effort to destroy any alternative to government-provided health care in this country?

Concerning "the dark days of the last year of Bush's term": It is generally forgotten that only Congress can spend money, and the Democrats won control of both Houses in the 2007 election. The worst Republican deficit, in 2006, was $160 billion, which was horrible. But, as Nancy Pelosi said in 2007, "We are back!" The 2007 deficit was $359 billion, and the 2008 deficit was $453 billion. In 2009, it was $1.6 TRILLION, and the Democrats project $1 trillion deficits as far into the future as the eye can see.
