Although Charles Murray is a self-described libertarian, he is more of a classical liberal that believes government should do as little as possible and that its political subdivisions that weaken it actually make it more effective in how it serves the people.
The political (specifically Democrat) machine doesn't want a Bernie Sanders nomination. The machine likes safe, middle-of-the-road candidates. Boat rockers always appeal to the fringes, but never the masses.
Instead of listening to those seeking to blame Mexico and make wildly inaccurate claims about the border regions, cities and states ought to take lessons from communities like those of the Borderplex. It is a model of integration that has created economic prosperity by utilizing our crucial trade relationship with Mexico
As much as I have mocked the idea, and tweeted jokes about it, in a weird way that I am reluctant to admit (which is why this sentence is going on for so long) the idea of a Donald Trump presidency is starting to grow on me. Like fungus maybe, but growing nonetheless.
Only three candidates are willing to say that the system is corrupt: Bernie Sanders, Donald Trump, and Lawrence Lessig. But Trump has no solution to the problem, while the other two do.
Bush and Trump's refusal to apologize for this racist-baiting is reprehensible. Placing children at the center of political debate and focusing on babies as emblematic of repugnant groups is dangerous, particularly when we live in a country where we recognize children as society's future.
"The Donald" has virtually every communication quality that I coach candidates around the world to have ... with the glaring exception of one. And it was the main deficit that doomed Sarah Palin in the general and the main advantage that is now causing Dr. Ben Carson to rise.
I am convinced that if the traditional mainstream media decided for a week to not cover Donald Trump, we would see a complete transformation in his behavior, because he wouldn't be getting traction. As long as the media continues to cover him, they are depriving the American people from having a true democratic experience.
I honestly don't know if Donald Trump will win the Republican nomination. But he's not just show. He's offering something real, something very valuable to his party's electorate that can't be laughed off or dismissed. Expect him to be around for a while.
It takes only a moment of reflection to know when and why Donald Trump will end his campaign and will absolutely not run as a third party.
So it is that I feel reasonably secure in re-stating my firm, unshakable position on this issue. If America actually elects Donald Trump as president, I am going to stay here. While loudly and continually telling everybody that I plan on leaving.
When Hillary compares the Republicans to "terrorists" and suggests they will round up undocumented immigrants and put them in "box cars," evoking memories of the Holocaust, she changes the focus from the absurdity of their positions to scrutiny of hersel
We have to give Mr. Trump much respect; he knows how to interpret anger, distrust, mistreatment and fear into musical symphonies that is targeted to a specific audience.
Trump is often called "crazy," but there is method to his madness, and that method is matched and displayed by the speaking style he employs on the stump. Even his detractors see that a large part of his appeal is that he comes across as unscripted.
You know when Trump talks about not having time for being PC and for wanting to "make America great again"? He means for white America. And the silent majority he refers to? And people being "afraid" to say things? White people. Afraid to say racist things out loud.
Perhaps after this record breaking hot summer we will set a new normal for climate change coverage as well. To date, we have not seen a majority of serious environmental developments covered regularly and with sufficient context and depth on the evening news or on any recurring talk shows. It's time for the news networks to step up their game.
