We all—each and every American—owe a debt of gratitude to the greatest President in our history, and we should also be grateful for how his presidency came to an end.
Volunteerism belongs in the party platforms of both Republicans and Democrats as a solution to the social problems of the United States. But both parties have lost sight of this important part of American exceptionalism.
The GOP likes to say they're fiscally responsible and that Democrats like to "tax and spend". When the actual data is analyzed, we find Republican administrations have been "tax cut and borrow" and the largest contributors to the deficit.
Since the spread of COVID-19, Dr. Anthony Fauci has become a household name. Most people know something about the nation's top infectious disease expert, but there are plenty of interesting things most people don't know about him.
Debates are not always the most honest. Many individuals took to social media to express their disapproval of Senator Harris and her claims during the debate. Let's take a look at some of those claims and compare them to the facts.
Some people are born with a spark of individualism, others find that spark later in life, but it’s that special spark that separates individualists from collectivists.
Women have always been active participants in the Modern American Libertarian Movement. Maybe they’re just not all being counted in those “Where are they?” surveys.
A brief opinion of why the public seems to have deserted Trump in the upcoming election.
When a man’s quest for vengeance turned epic.
The recent revelation that Russia offered the Taliban bounties for American soldiers exposes a major deficiency in the White House.

Andrew Cuomo follows in the footsteps of his late father Mario Cuomo, the 52nd Governor of New York. Brother Chris Cuomo is a CNN journalist.
After the chaotic rollercoaster ride of the last four years of a Republican administration, the American people, traumatized and fearful, were looking for stability. Turns out Joe Biden provided a calming and steady leadership to a nation in turmoil and clinched the presidency.
Gambling odds-makers have given Bernie Sanders a higher probability of beating Trump in November than Joe Biden, were Sanders to become the Democratic nominee. At the same time, concerns that recent Biden's gaffes indicate the onset of early-stage dementia have broken out into the open.
This is a review of facts you might not know about Joe Biden's voting record and beliefs, including revealing quotes and under-reported controversies. Even back in 2008, it's possible that Biden was chosen as Obama's VP in part to appease closeted white racists who were afraid of a Black president.
The validity of Biden's victories on Super Tuesday has been questioned due to information from exit polls. Long wait times at the polls in California and Texas may also have skewed the results of the election. Many factors were acting against Bernie, while the media exaggerated Biden's successes.
Bernie Sanders is being painted as a dangerous socialist, but ironically, he is one of the few US senators who strongly opposed the current law to allow the military to detain US citizens indefinitely, without charge or trial, if the executive branch claims they are "associated" with terrorism.
The acquittal of Donald Trump opened the door to the Democrats to take over the Senate. The reason is that many Republicans and Independents wanted witnesses at the sham trial, and their Trumplican Senators told them to take a hike. The question is, did they like being ignored?
Analysts are aghast at a recent General Accounting Office report that the Pentagon was forced to make up to $35 trillion in "accounting adjustments," more than the entire size of the US economy, in 2019.
Many people do not use their real names except on legal documents. Celebrities change their names all the time. Did you know that Ivanka Trump, Prince Harry, Sasha Obama, and Whoopi Goldberg go by names that were not given to them at birth?
Elizabeth Warren's inclusion policies belittle the very people they're intended to help. If Warren truly has faith in the downtrodden minorities she’s championing, then her course of action would only consist of mitigating those factors that prevent workforce diversity.
Politicians hold important offices and have more responsibility than most others in society, but that doesn't mean they are invulnerable and without fault just like us. They have families, feelings, goals, dreams, and nightmares. Treat them like it.
The reason the Republicans don't want to have witnesses called is simple.
Many are beginning to understand that their elected officials and political parties are not working for them and do not have their best interests at heart. No, it's not the Alamo, but there's a reason why so many American citizens are holding the line right now.
As polarisation quietly destroys democracy, the principles of graded exposure therapy could help reverse our deepening divide in favour of egoless compromise.
Who will win the presidential election in 2020? The Keys to the White House is a system created by historian Allan Lichtman to predict presidential elections. The system has correctly predicted the winner in every election since 1984 and retrospectively fits all "modern" elections since 1860.
I pity the poor Republicans. Judging by the effects of the Reagan, Bush, and Nixon administrations, I think the Republicans will fail once again under Trump.
Democrats often complain that they are being insulted when Republicans and other opponents employ the term " Democrat" in place of " Democratic," while referring to that party, its officials, or its policies. The distinction is trivial, influenced primarily by dialect more than desire to insult.
The lead 1619 Project essay argues that the American Revolution was fought in part to maintain slavery. While the factual basis for acknowledging that some were motivated to join the rebellion by this desire is sound, the absence of a larger context gives that fact an illusory sense of truth.
The Deep State is the federal bureaucracy that creates laws, enforces them, and judges and punishes transgressors, which means it possesses all three powers that are supposed to be separate in America: legislative, executive, and judicial.
Franklin Pierce, the 14th president of the United States, was ill-prepared to lead a nation on the verge of civil war. His support of the Kansas-Nebraska Bill brought bloody turmoil to Kansas and opened the door to slavery in the West.
Trump’s ‘Make America Great Again’ message was riddled in divisive rhetoric even before he took office; his opinions on race, gender, religion and other social issues lacked good reasoning and intent. Interestingly, this message was able to resonate with conservative and Christian demographics.
Both Republicans and Democrats are largely walking in lockstep with their parties for the 2020 election. The deciding vote is going to come down to the Independent voters. The Left is going to make it hard for Democrats to get those votes.
In a heavily disputed photograph that Prince Andrew has suggested is inauthentic, a full view of the usually cropped image shows Epstein accuser Virginia Roberts with Prince Andrew and Ghislaine Maxwell smiling in the background.
The internet erupted when President Donald Trump posted, without explanation, an image that appeared to show his head on what is widely believed to be Sylvester Stallone's body in "Rocky III"—an image that Team Trump is now denying is doctored.
After one week of testimony, the Republican denials just don't hold water. There seems to be a problem with finding out who the whistleblower is; the past two impeachment inquiries were also based on whistleblower testimony, although it may not have been called that at the time.
