    In fact, liberals may be more effective at causing resentment than in getting people to come their way.

  • This is one article that rings so true. When Obama got elected a lot of us held our nose but did not scream the way Liberals are now doing. The more Liberals cry and whine about Trump his actions ring volumes in what he has done.

  • An exceptionally well written and thought provoking piece. As an independent voter, capable of seeing through the scourge of partisan politics, I appreciate this kind of honesty. In a country so divided by the cancer of a two party system, it would be wise for both sides of the isle to look at a piece
