The Party of Lincoln: GOP Voters Must Learn from our Founder

Abraham Lincoln was not the first GOP candidate for President, Fremont got that honor, but he was the first candidate who could get a Reynolds’ vote. Fremont was an erratic hero . . . a personality with accomplishment. Lincoln was the greatest President of the United States, a towering global figure, and the savior of the [Read More…]

Socialism isn’t Wicked, It Just Turns Out Badly

Socialism is having a “cool kids” moment. The generation that did not know Eastern Europe is in school and is tired of the corporate cronyism of our times. They are right to be mad, sadly they have picked the wrong solution: socialism. Socialism is a very, very bad idea. Last century, atheists picked a form [Read More…]

Why a Christian in America Should Not Be or Vote for a Socialist

Senator Bernie Sanders is being  promoted as a way for Christians to vote their values, but voting for Sanders would promote some values at the cost of being foolish. Sanders shares my values in some important areas (race, poverty), but has poor solutions. You can do bad, after all, by doing good! Generally, it is [Read More…]

New Hampshire From Texas

New Hampshire, original colony, and beautiful state has just finished a primary. The networks called the results the moment the polls closed so there is less to “live blog” and more a live reaction.  Here were my predictions before the polls closed (via Twitter): Trump 23.5 Kasich 17.5 Cruz 17 Bush 16.5 Rubio 14 Trump [Read More…]

Star Wars, David Bowie, Hillary Clinton, and Peyton Manning

Last month my feeds were dominated by Star Wars, David Bowie, and Peyton Manning. Great culture endures and so the play Hamlet has been performed, is being performed, and will  be performed. Great culture endures because even though there may not be a great deal of money to be made, the art has the power [Read More…]

Dickens on the Super Bowl

Today is the birthday of the literary showman, Charles Dickens. He was one of the first authors to add performance to his writing . . . Dickens would perform his own work to riotous applause and profit. If he lived during the Super Bowl, he would have found a way to be part of the [Read More…]

Live Blog of New Hampshire Republican Debate

Usual rules apply: I will post my thoughts as they come, lightly edited, if edited at all. My call for Iowa held up and my call for New Hampshire has always been: Trump, Rubio, Cruz. Trump must win New Hampshire. Cruz would harm Rubio by coming in second. If Rubio comes in second, then Bush, [Read More…]

OJ was Guilty: Let’s not Repeat the Mistakes that Set Him Free

Patience to Be Free: Numbers is a Good Book

I get so tired in the book of Numbers of all the numbering. In fact, I grow impatient and then I pause. The book has done the work that needed to be done: I am impatient and a book theme of Numbers is the tragedy of impatience. God sends Moses to deliver Israel from Pharaoh [Read More…]

Nations Are Not You and Me OR You Can be Saved but the Nation Cannot

If I take your money without your consent, it is called “stealing.” If the government takes your money without your consent, it is called taxation. Government can do things that individuals cannot, thank God. Of course, Americans would argue that even if I personally oppose taxes, I must pay them. Why? Even if my candidate [Read More…]
