Movement To Draft Elizabeth Warren For President

Senator Elizabeth Ann Warren has said that she will not run for President in 2016. However, for many Democrats, Hillary Clinton is a disheartening candidate.

Ben Carson’s Political Support Proves Thin

Ben Carson’s supporters are touting a new 2016 presidential candidate poll by ORC International, saying that it shows that Ben Carson has “strong” support among Republican voters. What counts as a “strong” showing in the polls, according to pro-Carson activists?

In an interview with The Atlantic published this week, Hillary Rodham Clinton advocated the promotion of “American values that also happen to be universal values.”

In order for any such values to genuinely both American and universal, they must be:

Meritocracy Loses In 2016 Presidential Poll

A new poll out by NBC and Marist shows, among voters in New Hampshire and Iowa, Hillary Clinton in the lead for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination and Jeb Bush in the lead for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.

On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton was shown to be far, far ahead of her nearest […]

Myth of A Successful Iraq War Continues

I was struck when I passed by a new stand this morning and saw what was on the front cover of the Detroit Free Press. The headline read: Heartbroken U.S. Vets Watch In Dismay As Sacrifices In Iraq Unravel.

The implication was clear: American soldier The Iraq War in order to provide the […]
