Based on history, the U.S. seems to face major recessions every decade. And so far, the U.S. has pulled itself out of what seemed to be end-all calamities. It’s easy to blame the wealthy people of this country for “taking” from others. But perhaps, all some of them really did was make a move when everyone else was paralyzed with fear.

Over the last decade or so, as the giants of the founding generation of modern American conservatism have died, each has been rehabilitated into a gentleman-statesman of a bygone era of conservative decency and open-mindedness.
Let's give the "climate of hate" rhetoric a rest for a moment. It's time to talk about the climate of death, in which the abortion industry thrives unchecked. Dehumanizing rhetoric, rationalizing language and a callous disregard for life have numbed America to its monstrous consequences.
