Rand Paul

Rand Paul Will Make You Think About The GOP

  Rand Paul is not your typical Republican, and many within the GOP resent that. Before dismissing his candidacy, the GOP should remember they aren’t that popular. The 2014 midterms were about Democrats running away from Obama similar to Republicans demotivating their own base by making them virtually indistinguishable from...

Rubio

Rubio In The Race Like A Normal Half-Termer

  Marco Rubio has been a rising star within the GOP for over a decade now. Mitt Romney vetted him for Vice President in 2012, but found some “irregular” finances. Rubio has hired many of Romney’s former campaign personnel from his 2012 Presidential bid, and before so there is no...

  Hillary Clinton jumped into the presidential race with both feet today. She is arguably leaps and bounds ahead of her competition.

This Is Free Speech and Capitalism In Action

  People are apparently for insulting our intelligence pretending that tolerating intolerance is required for ideological or philosophical purity or consistency. No. Tolerating intolerance is simply passive-aggressive intolerance; a means by which those who are bigoted can continue to be so without the risks of taking personal responsibility for their...

It Is the Gift That Keeps On Giving

  Indiana, and now Arkansas’ Religious Freedom Restoration Act is indeed the gift that keeps on giving if you are vested in the 2016 Presidential race.

Indiana’s Idea of “Freedom” Is Restrictive

  Indiana’s new Religious Freedom Restoration Act, or RFRA, might actually do little as a law when it goes into effect July 1. It simply sets a standard by which cases involving religious objections will be judged. The law essentially states the government cannot intrude on a person’s religious liberty...
