Hillary Clinton, Don’t Do This to Us Again

For several days now, the media has been teasing with varying enthusiasm the prospect of Hillary Clinton entering last-minute into the democratic presidential primaries. This is a horrible idea. Her entrance would only be a last-ditch effort to remove candidates like Gabbard, Yang, and Sanders from the spotlight. She is the embodiment of the establishment Democrat, the DNC failure that 2016 exemplified. She is so rife with controversy not of a personal nature, but of one that has gotten people killed. It would be almost impressive if it wasn’t so tragic. Her entrance into the race would be both detrimental and embarrassing.

Is the GOP Planning a Coup Against Trump?

Trump GOP Coup
Richard Scott Howard | @TheNextTedCruz

According to the most recent Gallup polling, Donald Trump’s GOP approval rating stands at 87%. Since Gallup began asking the question, this number has never dipped below 77% (it is worth noting this happened between December 11-17, 2017, which is also when his general polling numbers hit their low of 35%). Republican support for the president, it would then seem, is steadfast despite his myriad of controversies. The party seems to be marching in lockstep, and to defy him within the party seems to be a surefire way to end one’s political career.

The Libertarian Party Can’t Even Balance Its Own Budget

Since its inception in 1971, the Libertarian Party has pointed out serious flaws in the American political landscape. From criticizing endless war to condemning wasteful budget spending, the LP has certainly taken note of legitimate issues. But would the party of Chair Nick Sarwark come remotely close to solving them, if elected into office?

On the topic of war, it’s hard to say; supposedly antiwar candidates frequently back down on their promises. Barack Obama is an excellent example of this, for his policies led to the creation of several new wars and countless drone attacks against civilians. But he is no indication of the Libertarian Party, so it is unfair to say whether they would keep their antiwar promises. On fiscal issues, though, disturbing evidence seriously calls their ability to manage money into question.

Republicans Must Be Cautious About Any Primary Runs

For the last year or so, potential candidates for the 2020 election have received tremendous media attention. In fact, ABC, NBC, and Fox News have had sub-pages they solely dedicated to gossip about what, when, and who will spark the race to the oval office. The voting booths won’t deliver the true result of the 2020 mystery for another 21 months. However, there is beginning to be a real sense of movement in American politics.

Governor Bill Weld Is the Best Libertarian Choice in 2020

Former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld has faced intense heat from members of the Libertarian Party since he ran alongside former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson on the 2016 Libertarian Presidential ticket. However, as we enter the 2020 primary season, it is fully clear Weld is the best choice for the Presidency. He is the liberty-minded man that seeks to dethrone President Trump for the Republican nomination.
