Seven things that did not happen in 2018

Well, 2018 is now in the books and surprise, we're all still here and doing OK. Trump is still President and it won't be a nuclear winter. There are no concentration camps filled with non-white slave laborers waiting to die at the hands of MAGA hatted stormtroopers

How the Left has Forfeited the Democrats’ Right to Political Power

It used to be that both the major parties, Republicans and Democrats both wanted to do what is best for America given the framework of the Constitution and guided by the principles set forth in the Declaration of Independence. They only varied on how best to accomplish this and how fast a pace we should take in changing things.

The Freedom Caucus won the battle but still could lose the war.

If President Trump is correct, Obamacare will implode and the Democrats will have little choice but to join the effort to fix healthcare. Don’t count on them to bring conservative solutions to the table though. The problem for the Freedom Caucus if this happens will be to hold onto the concessions they gained during the last few days.

Trump’s Hail Mary

I'm not his biggest fan, but Trump showed me something Wednesday. He showed me that he's willing to do the hard things, he's willing to put his candidacy on the line. Meanwhile, Hillary has been MIA for most of the past fortnight. She hasn't even gone to Louisiana after both Trump and President Obama went. Baton Rouge should be mostly dry by now, will she ever go?

The Politics of Division

The politics of division is the main weapon in the Democratic arsenal. Their strategy is simple: divide and conquer. They pick a voting bloc, along any lines it doesn’t matter, give them victim status then assign a villain. Then come the promises… Give the ‘victim’ a largess, and/or take punitive action against the alleged bad guy. The oppressor is always the larger party, usually they call them ‘big’ as in ‘big oil’, or ‘big pharma’, just so you know who to blame. As an aside, you’ll never hear reference to ‘big academia’ or ‘big government’ from the left as those are clients and are thus exempt.
