Over and over again, you will have to overcome nearly unbearable odds. Yet you were born in the land of the free. You were brought up in the home of the brave.

"What we are seeing in 2014 has a history of more than 1,300 years — a very bloody, terror-ridden history.

    Do we want to become statist Europeans or remain free Americans? Many friends are telling me that most of the European media are expecting President Obama to be reelected. If so, they are likely to be shocked on election day. In the U.S., there are 26 national polling firms. The one I count most trustworthy is Rasmussen (which came closest […]
