Americans have a right to be upset. It is a two-man race for the Presidency, and both candidates embrace big government and big spending. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney favor military intervention abroad, and both men’s healthcare plans have interfered with the free market.
Independence Day is just a week away, and political language, especially that of the election year back and forth, is awash with patriotic memes. George Washington, our Nation’s first President, warned Americans “to guard against the impostures of pretended patriotism.”
Reports of how many small-town law enforcement agencies have now become armed to the teeth with military-grade weaponry make it certain that an unarmed sheriff like Andy Taylor would not make a believable character today.
If you loved George W. Bush’s foreign policy, then Mitt Romney is your man. If this fact wasn’t evident before last weekend, it should now be crystal clear. During a weekend retreat, former Bush foreign policy officials gathered to fete Romney and pontificate about American empire.
The Supreme Court’s decision regarding the Arizona immigration law has one representative referring to Obama as “an emperor.” Representative Ben Quayle (R-Ariz.) wants answers from Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
