I believe in cash, the money almighty, creator of happiness and wealth; and in Big Corporations, its only friend, which were conceived by the holy government, born of the power to tax, suffered under regulations, were criticized, bankrupted, and neglected.

The 3 million McCain voter who didn’t vote for Romney didn’t stay and they didn’t vote third party. They died. To survive, the GOP needs to stop being afraid of Millennials and tell them truth: they can move out of mom and dad’s house, they can drop out of school, they can quit their dead-end job with the idiot supervisor.

Part 2 of 3 | Read Part 1 | Read Part 3 What is Todd’s real crime? He’s a damaged candidate, sure, but he is not a damaged man. He was wrong, but he erred on the side of life. It says something about a society and political mood where a man can be disqualified for loving life and God, but another man celebrated for enabling the slaughter of living children with surgical scissors through
“Anybody will beat Obama.” I get some comments and see a lot of tweets about the inevitability that any Republican will win in November. That’s frightening. The prospect of a Republican beating Obama isn’t frightening, of course—any of the four remaining candidates would be night and day better for our future.

Two questions come up: Why? and What of it? Why: Interest in Thompson as the non-candidate peaked in late June and the first
****THIS IS HENNESSY’S VIEW’S 1000TH POST SINCE AUGUST, 2000**** As an act of courtesy to the politics-weary American public, Fred Thompson is likely to announce his candidacy for the GOP nomination for President in September, according to columnist-reporter Robert Novak.
