Can Red and Blue State America Coexist?


The last several weeks and months Democrats have demonstrated for all to see what a radical party they’ve become.

Trump’s North America Trade Triumph


For those on the left and right who were certain that Donald Trump’s presidency meant the end of global free trade… think again.

An Easy Way to Lower the Trade Deficit

I’m technically disabled‎ — but not mentally disabled the way some of my foes on CNN seem to believe. No, my disability is hearing loss (in one ear I’m nearly deaf). I have to turn the TV up so loud the neighbors say they can hear it in the house next door. My friends complain that […]
