Repeating the Mistakes of History

Both Presidents Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon thought that the biggest mistake of the Vietnam War was President Kennedy’s involvement in the overthrow of South Vietnamese President Ngo Dinh Diem in November 1963. Diem became the first president of South Vietnam in 1955 following the partition of Vietnam into a Communist North Vietnam and the Republic of (South) Vietnam after the French withdrawal from Indochina in 1954.

“Every generation needs a new revolution.” – Thomas Jefferson

It should be obvious to most thinking Americans that we have a lawless President. He cares no more for the Constitution, justice, or truth than a cigarette butt. He governs by unprincipled political expediency. He is by far the most dangerous radical ever to occupy the White House, and if we do not throw him out of the White House in November, freedom will have seen its last hours by 2016. The long and stealthy march of cultural Marxism will have triumphed in political despotism. The American dream will be a totalitarian nightmare.

North Carolinians voted 61 percent to 39 percent to pass a Constitutional Amendment firmly establishing its existing laws and traditions that marriage is exclusively defined as the union of one man and one woman. This victory was despite a deceptive and often-bitter campaign by those who wanted to see the moral roots of marriage pulled up and discarded.

Sifting out the Political Weasels, Dunces, and Jellyfish

The United States needs an immigration policy that benefits Americans. What we have is an immigration policy—or rather a deliberate failure to enforce immigration laws—that benefits illegal immigrants, businesses that profit from hiring cheap foreign labor instead of Americans, and politicians who want to change our society into a big-government-dependent welfare state.
