The Attempted Political Assassination of Sarah Palin & Why It Must and Will Fail
The mainstream media and the Obama-Biden campaign made the political assassination of Governor Sarah Palin their number one goal during the 2008 election cycle. The agile and tough Alaskan moose-hunter was able to survive the attempt on her political life, but left this campaign field bloodied.

A Time for Choosing: even truer 44 years later
I spotted an allusion yesterday to a Ronald Reagan speech delivered in 1964 in support of Barry Goldwater. Unfortunately his message was not heeded that election, and one can trace a direct path from that time of choosing for the America to the time of choosing that voters face next Tuesday.

And this idea that government is beholden to the people, that it has no other source of power except to | Read More »
