While it's true that liberalism is destroying America, it is also true that most liberals are not doing it intentionally. Instead, they do what they do out of fear.
Liberals are the casualties of social conditioning which inspires them to fear just about everything. That's why they fear free speech, warm winters, competition, healthy debate, individualism, the Bible, guns, big sodas, freedom, capitalism, the U.S. Constitution, salt, manly men, a strong military, and so on.
These irrational fears drive liberals to attempt to control their environment by creating safe spaces and collective utopias which always fail. more >>
Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson thinks Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump could become more gracious if he starts reading the Bible more and taking its wisdom to heart.
Carson, a former Republican presidential candidate, is now backing Trump.
In a recent interview with WABC's Rita Cosby, Carson explained that the brash, counterpunching Trump now recognizes the need to tailor his tone to ensure he goes the distance in the Republican presidential race and believes the Bible and prayer could help him. more >>
One of the too-few happy days in the twentieth century was November 9, 1989, the day the Berlin Wall came down.
For twenty-eight years the Berlin Wall had kept the people of Communist-controlled East Germany locked in. Without the Wall and without the tightly closed borders elsewhere, the people would have simply left the Communist states in larger and larger numbers and walked into the western democracies.
Freedom was incomparably preferred to state control. more >>

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has made a number of statements backing Pope Francis' views on the dangers of global wealth and income inequality, ahead of his scheduled visit to the Vatican this week.
"The pope is right in saying all of us must address the grotesque income and wealth inequality we are seeing throughout the world," Sanders' campaign Facebook page wrote on Sunday.
"Pope Francis is right. It is a tragedy that so many men, women and children in this world are suffering. They are suffering because of social, environmental and economic injustice, and I look forward to addressing these issues when I visit Vatican City next week," another statement from Sanders read. more >>
Last week, presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders joined 11 other members of Congress in sending a letter to the National Institute of Health (NIH), urging the agency to cut costs for the prostate cancer drug, Xtandi, by employing its "march-in rights." These rights, which have never before been utilized by the NIH, were established in 1980 under the Bayh-Dole Act, which gives federal agencies the authority to license a patent when action is deemed necessary, primarily as an emergency tactic. Using this provision as their justification, lawmakers are requesting that NIH override Xtandi's patent protection, which guarantees its manufacturers exclusive sales, in an effort to reduce the costs of the drug.
This request represents an enormous overreach by the government into U.S business and a major threat to the drug development process as a whole. However, Senator Sanders' proposal doesn't just have the potential to undermine the drug development system, it also poses a serious danger to the patent system by allowing the government to intervene in the protection of intellectual property.
The Constitution gives Congress the power to grant patents under Article I, Section 8, Clause 8. The establishment of patents is a key constitutional right and critical to fostering American innovation and growth for well over two centuries. Like the property rights our founding fathers valued in the highest degree, the protection of intellectual property has been key to America's success, responsible for establishing us as a global leader across many industries. Undermining the patent system, even for just one patent in one industry, would call into question our nation's entire system for protecting intellectual property and undercut a core American value that sets us apart from other nations. more >>
