An acquaintance of mine pointed out something to me this morning - that Amazon appears to be colluding with a democrat's campaign here in Texas to oust our sitting Senator, Ted Cruz.
A sizable part of the nation has lost its mind.
In 2016, democrats ran possibly the worst candidate in their history against a republican that nobody but his most ardent followers (at first) really believed could win. I could waste a lot of time here about exactly why Hillary Clinton was such a bad candidate, but that’s enough meat for a whole other post by itself.....and maybe I’ll tackle it some day if I ever feel like pawing through history’s dustbin.
There are not very many people on America's political left who inspire confidence in me. Camille Paglia is one such person. Prior to the election of Barack Obama as POTUS, there was a category of democrats who ran for the office with whom I disagreed on substantive issues, but about whom I did not feel they were an existential threat to either the nation, or to the rule of law. Barack Obama was the first democrat candidate about whom I feared for the future of the country. In many regards, my fears have been realized. I viewed the possible election of Hillary Clinton as a death blow to constitutional gov't, which must be averted at all costs.
