  • Quote of the Day

    Thomas Sowell:

    The Republican establishment needs to understand why someone with all Trump’s faults could attract so many people who are sick of the approach that Jeb Bush represents. No small part of the internal degeneration of American society has been a result of supposedly responsible officials caving in to whatever group is currently in vogue, and allowing them to trample on everyone else’s rights.

      And I would no small part of the internal degeneration of American society has been a result of supposedly responsible officials caving in to whatever group is making a sufficiently large donation or is a key voter block to them, and allowing them to trample on everyone else’s rights.

      Amen to that. And people are sick of voting for candidates who promise things which is then forgotten once in office. Tired of the same tied congressional leaders being elected…and re-elected.

      I fear, though, that many think things couldn’t be worse with Trump. I hope they are proven right, but I do somewhat ascribe to the “Columbus Argument” that there are more ways to make a tv worse than make one better. Things can be worse with Trump, and it sounds like some of his supporters are hoping for that in the event that when everything blows up, we’ll start over like it is the 1780’s.

      Many of us in the individual states have improved our lot by voting Republican the last few election seasons, and there were good candidates that came from those states now being denounced because they have been Republican for longer than the past year.

      The country might be better off if more voters treated elections as occasions to choose less-bad over worse rather than to demand perfection or to purchase indulgences.
