When we look back at the atrocities committed by Hitler, Mao, Stalin and Mussolini, we say, “That will never happen here.” We turn a blind eye and choose not to see the parallel between then and what is happening in our nation now through our “foreign to America’s Constitution” leader in the White House, a leader the American people tolerate.
When the Communist empire collapsed after almost 80 years of enforced socialist life, leaving the Ukranians (among others) to fend for themselves…they didn’t know what to do! Americans, on the other hand, are just beginning down that path. Liberals and gun-grabbers still parrot the Party line that it’s “for the children” and to make us all safer. But they have no answer to the question, “What will keep us safe from the government?”
Today's Quote of the Day comes to us from the LA Times, reporting on Senator Ted Cruz's recent speech at CPAC. In his speech, Cruz tells Republicans (as if they didn't have this one down pat) how to lose elections.
Here’s a bright idea. When the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issues a new regulation requiring retrofitting or that some new technology be used by energy providers, perhaps they should double-check to see if the technology actually exists yet.
In Texas, the lieutenant governor is almost as powerful as the governor, serving at the head of the state Senate, which requires 21 out of 31 votes to bring anything to the floor. Quite simply, if the lieutenant governor doesn’t like your bill, it is dead. National political writers miss this important point as they autopsy the meaning of the Texas Republican primary elections.
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
