A Radical Shake Up

Hardly an hour goes by these days without some type of repulsive, crude, or downright profane political discussion. Americans these days seem to argue instead of debate, and they seem to care more about which candidate manufactures the better insult than which one can solve our national debt crisis (or...

“The lesser of two evils.” This becomes a more and more common phrase in the light of the 2016 presidential election. Nobody wants a terrible president, so they’re willing to vote for someone they see as only slightly less terrible in return. But here’s the thing - the lesser of two evils is st...

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) wouldn’t fit the billing, as he doesn’t have much support beyond ultra-conservative Tea Partiers. Former Massachusetts Governor and 2012 Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney made huge waves when he announced that he wouldn’t be seeking the presidency for a third time. In his...
