🌟Jim Cardoza: Why Hillary Clinton is Flashing a Devilish Smile

"Certainly, one does not need 20-20 vision to see warts on Donald Trump. They are neon. He is brash, arrogant, far too glib, frequently insulting and routinely defensive. Unlike a polished politician, he hasn’t learned to measure his words and shroud his intentions. But while he is admittedly flawed in a myriad of ways, he does present two very under-appreciated qualities in the era of FBI cover-upssecret domestic surveillance and other hidden agenda schemes."

John Stossel: Another Libertarian Moment?

An alternative to Clinton and Trump.  The Libertarian Party might get more votes this year. Before the primaries, Time Magazine, frequent pusher of trends that do not exist, put Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ken.) on its cover and called him the "most interesting man in politics." Then Paul fizzled, and pundits said the "libertarian moment," if there ever was   ... MORE

That Weirdly Interesting Libertarian Party Debate On Fox

by Jeffrey Tucker.      Hooray for John Stossel! He has dedicated two issues of his wonderful show on Fox Business to hosting a debate between Libertarian Party aspirants to the presidency. The format is great. The questions in part one were solid. John does an excellent job. And the candidates were fascinating to watch. Within the LP itself, this    ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: Dangerous Donald Trump

A serious, mature president is needed.  Donald Trump's victories in the Republican primaries may make him seem like a sure winner. But those victories have been achieved by receiving either somewhat less than 40 percent of the votes or somewhat more than 40 percent, but never a majority. The fragmenting of the Republican vote among many   ... MORE

John Stossel: A Better Choice For 2016

The Libertarian party is selecting a nominee too.  A recent poll shows that if the election were held today, 11 percent of Americans would vote for a Libertarian, former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson. That's surprising, since last election Johnson got just 1 percent of the vote. This year, he's doing better, probably because Donald Trump and     ... MORE

David Sherfinski: Poll Shows Gary Johnson Already At 11%!

Voters not thrilled about the conventional choices. Libertarian presidential hopeful Gary Johnson, possibly benefitting from dissatisfaction with the two major parties’ front-runners, is in double digits in a potential three-way race, according to a poll released Thursday. In a three-way contest, Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton was at 42%,  ... MORE

Jeremy Carl: The Insane Campaign Of John Kasich

Donald Trump's useful idiot.   The GOP primary is a battle between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz. This has been fairly obvious since at least Super Tuesday, and it is overwhelmingly obvious today. The campaign of John Kasich is a joke, and not a particularly funny one, unless you like humor at the expense of the GOP and conservatism. Yet the      ... MORE

How The West Was Shunned In Primary Politics

by Froma Harrop.   There's a not-insignificant part of the United States known as the West Coast. It includes such prominent states as California, Oregon and Washington. These states have yet to hold a single presidential primary or caucus. But at 8 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Tuesday, this population center of 50 million-plus souls was informed that the ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: Desperate Tactics

The panic over Trump. It is desperation time for the Republican party establishment. Its extremely well financed favorite — Jeb Bush — never got anywhere with the voters in the primaries, and has already been forced out of the contest. This should at least cause some second thoughts — or perhaps first thoughts — by people who keep repeating that   ... MORE

J.D. Tuccille: Voting Third Party Isn’t Just A Serious Choice

It’s THE serious choice.  This year, the likely presidential candidates of the major political parties are two of the less savory individuals ever to run for office in a country whose Wikipedia entry doesn't feature periods of military rule. The Republicans seem poised to give us a crony capitalist who admires authoritarian foreign governments, views        ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: Desperate Tactics

Why Ted?  It is desperation time for the Republican party establishment. Its extremely well financed favorite — Jeb Bush — never got anywhere with the voters in the primaries, and has already been forced out of the contest. This should at least cause some second thoughts — or perhaps first thoughts — by people who keep repeating that money buys  ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: Last Chance for America? Part II

Last Chance for America? Part I.   The worst political blunder of all time, according to scientist Freeman Dyson, was the decision of the emperor of China in 1433 to cut off his country from the outside world. In the wake of that decision, China lost its position in the forefront of human achievements and fell behind, over the centuries, to become a   ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: Hillary’s Paranoid Identity Politics

Serving scare tactics to black folks.  Amid all the media analyses of the prospects of each of the candidates in both political parties, there is remarkably little discussion of the validity — or lack of validity — of the arguments these candidates are using. It is as if what matters this election year is the fate of a relative handful of people — currently seven   ... MORE

Nick Gillespie: Donald Trump & Bernie Sanders Are Burning the GOP & Democratic Party To The Ground, Thank God

A little good news for libertarians.       With the South Carolina primaries and Nevada caucuses in plain view, there seems little to no question that 2016's key interlopers, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, are still a problem for their respective "parties" (I use scare quotes because neither of them is really a member of either group). This reality  ... MORE

John Stossel: High-Tech Ted

Politicians tailor their messages to different audiences. Facing New Hampshire's primary, Ted Cruz talked more about "free-market principles" and a "commitment to the Constitution" and said "no one personality can right the wrongs done by Washington." Politico ran the headline "Ted Cruz, born-again libertarian." I'm skeptical.      ... MORE 

Cruz Makes Play for Libertarian Voters. Is Anybody Game?

by David Boaz.       As he moved from evangelical Iowa to fiscally conservative New Hampshire, Sen. Ted Cruz didn't waste a minute in changing his tune. In his Iowa victory speech Cruz gave a shout-out to libertarians, who are thick on the ground in New Hampshire. He declared, "That old Reagan coalition is coming back together, ...     ... MORE
