Dr. Carson was my first choice for president back in 2016. I even contributed to his campaign.

My question is this: Which party is trying to divide us by age, race and income?

He is a criminal and pure slime.
I tend to agree and I must say Ive been really hard for a variety of reasons lately concerning my alma mater. The hospital has been really on top of this crazy pandemic... not that it’s not deadly just that there are and were other routes....

I was reading this article regarding the family of Ashli Babbitt and their quest to find out more about her death and I'm wondering . . . what is the reason for keeping everything so secretive? I understand that the officer fears for his safety, but I would think that would be the same for any officer. Yet, I can't recall any being given the same amount of protection.

This quite interesting as Professor Berstein, a long-time Objectivist(Ayn Rands philosophy)friend and highly influential thinker has just stepped off the Randian reservation in that their incorrect thinking is the Conservatives are far worse due to their religious base.

While I will never register Republican, I'm an independent in the truest sense of the term, his argument is mine.

An enemy of my enemy is my friend, at least so long as this absolutely essential intellectual war with the left is going down.

This war is for the soul of the only moral nation to ever exist and it must be fought with such dillegence and ferocity as we can muster.

Professor Bernstein:

The Democrats have finally done it. After a lifetime as a registered Independent and refusing to ally myself with religious conservatives, the Left's off-the-charts irrationality convinced me to change. I have registered as a Republican.

Standing up for individual rights and capitalism necessitates identifying and opposing their worst enemy. That enemy is the Left, including and especially its thought control and its relentless racism. I have published an entire essay showing that Christianity (a large element of Republican philosophy) is less dictatorial than Marxism (the basic philosophy of the Democrats). It is available on my website, so I will not reprise it here.

But there is a more important reason that the Republicans are less bad than the Democrats. Remember: The American Founders were, to a great, if imperfect, degree exponents of the Enlightenment philosophy of the Rights of Man (individual rights).

But during the 20th and 21st centuries, German philosophy (especially Kant, Hegel, and Marx) swept our university Humanities divisions, the schools of education, the government schools, and many elite private schools. It is a philosophy that extols social power over the individual in every form and its necessary political consequence is some version of socialism. By now, untold millions of "educated" Americans have been indoctrinated with German philosophy, the philosophy that, in its distilled essence, brought the world National Socialism and Communism--and they have no respect for, or even an understanding of, individual rights.

Nominally, they are Americans; philosophically, they are Germans. Their political party is the Democrats.

But the Republicans, mixed in with their religiosity, retain a last vestige of Americanism, of respect for individual rights, for America's founding principles, and for individual rights as the reason for America's greatness. A number of leading Republicans--Ron DeSantis, Kristi Noem, Byron Donalds, Nikki Haley, and others--although seriously flawed, retain a last vestige of respect for individual rights, utterly rejected by Democrats.

The Republicans still love America, even if, in part, they philosophically misunderstand it. The Democrats hate America. It is the deepest reason I hate them.

If America is to continue as even a semi-free country, the Left must be intellectually and morally crushed. Our biggest battle and challenge is to fundamentally change education in this country. It is the reason I am writing a book on education. Politics is downstream from philosophy and education, but it is still part of the stream. Politics is secondary but not unimportant. The Left must be defeated here, as well. The Republicans, despite a general lack of brains and backbone, are the only ones realistically capable of defeating the Democrats in national elections.

The religious conservatives are a mixed case. The Left is evil. That is why I registered as a Republican.

“The findings, including unflinching characterizations of furtive interactions between Trump associates and Russian operatives, echo to a large degree those of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation and appear to repudiate the Republican president’s claims that the FBI had no basis to investigate whether his campaign was conspiring with Russia.”
