Venezuela Needs to Sort Itself without American Intervention

TJ Roberts | United States

Venezuela has hit the news again after the Trump Administration announced support for the opposition. This decision has caused conflict not only with Maduro, but also with the Russian government for the United States. This is because Russia has secure financial relations with Maduro’s Venezuela. While it is the duty of any moral person to empathize with the socialist hell that the people of Venezuela suffer, it is also the duty of foreign nations to respect sovereignty. The Venezuelan people deserve a revolution. Especially given the citizens killed at the hand of the military while protesting Maduro. They do not, however, need American intervention to have this revolution. America must stay out of Venezuelan affairs and allow the people of that sovereign nation to sort its own problems out.

TJ Roberts | United States

It is a popular lie that tax deductions are nothing more than subsidies. Advocates of this idea claim that the state funds certain behaviors by eliminating taxes on such actions.

Rather, they belong to the people the state forced to pay.

Lying to Congress Should Not Be a Crime

TJ Roberts | United States

The Buzzfeed report alleging Donald Trump told Michael Cohen to lie to Congress was false. This surprised no one so long as they have an IQ above room temperature. It’s Buzzfeed. They’re notoriously dishonest. But let’s suppose they told the truth. What if Cohen’s lying to Congress was a direct result of Donald Trump ordering him to do so? While pundits would feign outrage, let’s be real; who cares? The idea that lying to Congress should be a federal crime is one of the great ironies of American Law.
