Nancy: the Strength of Subordination

Nancy Reagan is dead. She is not the last of her era, George H.W. Bush and Barbara Bush remain with a few other senior hands, but the Party she knew is dead. Bob Dole was complaining on the news that he was a conservative, but that Kansas had become extreme. Whatever was good or bad [Read More…]

Sometimes We Are All Chockers: Peter, Lincoln, and The Rest of Us

This is not really about politics. The other day Donald Trump said that “Little Marco” was a “chocker.” By this he meant choker, and Trump said, “a choker is always a choker.” Fortunately for the Donald after his loss in Iowa (big time chocking), this is not true. Scott Norwood missed a game winning field [Read More…]

The Hands Campaign: Why It Matters

Dr. Ben Carson is famous for his book and film Gifted Hands. The neurosurgeon featured many “these hands” commercials that were some of the best of the campaign. They represented the beautiful side of Lincoln’s Party and the reason so many millions supported Dr. Carson. I thought he was not the best choice for the [Read More…]

Post-Super Tuesday: Going to the Convention and a Split Party

Ben Carson is out and the brokered convention is now more likely than not. This is not a bad thing, but the only thing. Why? First, this is a new world. Trump is the frontrunner and if this was a normal year, Trump would be (pick your favorite phrase) the prohibitive/presumptive nominee. The pressure to unite [Read More…]

Super Tuesday Live Blog

The first major returns in delegate terms come tonight. Here is my own view as I voted in Texas today. My feeds are full of #nevertrump and White nationalists telling me I am a bad person.

How I Will Vote: Ten Guidelines from President James Garfield

Tomorrow I will vote in the Texas Republican Primary. I told my team yesterday that I thought college presidents that “endorsed” in a primary like Mr. Falwell at Liberty University made a mistake, so I will not reveal my candidate.

Who is buried in Grant’s Tomb?

The old joke has an answer: “Who is buried in Grant’s tomb?” Nobody. Grant is not buried. I walked several miles today on a pilgrimage to a personal hero: US Grant. He is thought of as a “failed President” because back in the day, hating the KKK and jailing lots of members was viewed as “extreme.” [Read More…]

On Locke This Presidential Year

America exists because of John Locke. There are reasons, of course, but this Republic owes the larger part of the ideas behind it to the English philosopher. The Founders depended so much on Locke’s ideas and philosophic vocabulary that it is almost more interesting to note where they deviated from him than where they agreed [Read More…]

Plato and Jesus

Certain critics of great books education fear that the books will replace the Book. They understand that not everyone who loves wisdom falls into vanity, but know that some of us do. They are right to worry, because certain authors are so good, so true, and so beautiful that they appear sufficient. Plato is one [Read More…]
