Mr. Buchanan, I propose that a break-up of “The Union” is exactly what is needed ["America: No longer 1 nation, 1 people"].
Our nation is deeply divided, with the political “class” being its own insulated and oblivious enclave – one most citizens would be far better without (and not just at the federal level, as many state governments mimic the federal malignancy). A break-up, with some that would certainly try to re-establish a constitutional republic based on the original founding documents, is desperately needed. Many lessons h ... continue reading »
Gov. Rick Perry complains now about the border influx, but the children are only coming to take advantage of in-state tuition and the driver’s licenses Texas gives illegals.
In 2012 Perry lectured the rest of us about “being compassionate.” What happened to that nonsense now?

The Department of Veterans Affairs’ job was to care for veterans. The ex-secretary of the VA, Eric Shinseki, had been in control of this organization for some six years. During this time, 40 veterans died because they were denied treatment – treatment clearly they were entitled to receive from mandated providers.
Secret lists were maintained on veterans waiting to be seen by doctors. These lists covered up wait times that were exceeded. The reason these lists were used was so that tracking of wait times could be deliberately covered up.
What is more shocking is that more than $17 million were paid to doctors and admin ... continue reading »
