About

The product of a military family, growing up in Naples, Italy and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and being stationed in Germany for two years while in the Army, Vince spent half of his first quarter century seeing the US from outside of its own borders. That perspective, along with a French wife and two decades as a struggling entrepreneur have only fueled an appreciation for freedom and the fundamental greatness of the gifts our forefathers left us.

After Super Tuesday the Little Trump Train is still chugging… Oh, what is a party to do?

By 10 Comments 854 views

Now that Super Tuesday is history, one has to wonder about the future. The Donald Trump train looks a little less like a juggernaut than it did yesterday… but just a little. Of the 11 states contested, Trump won 7, Cruz won 3 and Rubio won Minnesota. Seven out of eleven sounds pretty staggering, but… Read more »

A Donald Trump presidency will be the death of the Republican party. Good riddance!

By 45 Comments 3,053 views

It looks like Donald Trump may run the table towards Cleveland, or close to it. Although it may end up being a two man race after the SEC Primary – John Kasich doesn’t count and Ben Carson is irrelevant – it may end up being too late to matter.  So why would Donald Trump be… Read more »

Bush, Kasich and Carson should quit… and probably Rubio too, otherwise say hello to President Trump

By 31 Comments 1,602 views

I don’t remember the context at all, but I once heard someone put forth a theoretical dilemma… “You have a choice: You can save the world, but the person you loathe most in the world would get credit for it and be hailed as the hero of mankind… or, you can yourself be hailed as… Read more »

Trump voters in 2016 are not so different from Obama voters in 2008… Here’s why

By 9 Comments 1,390 views

If Donald Trump gets the GOP nod against Hillary or Bernie, I’m voting for Donald. Frankly, after watching the debate on Saturday night I’d probably want to take a shower after pulling the lever for him, but pull it I would… That being said, Saturday’s debate demonstrated Donald Trump to not only be a rude… Read more »

For Marco Rubio being right on Barack Obama was a Pyrrhic victory

By 17 Comments 1,935 views

Marco Rubio’s campaign seems to have crashed on the rocks because of his… shall we say somewhat repetitive use of the phrase “Obama knows what he’s doing”, but the truth is, he was 100% right. The reason that so many people scoff at the notion that Obama knows what he’s doing is because the very… Read more »

Why Palin and Limbaugh Are Supporting Trump: Fame and Legacy

By 11 Comments 1,391 views

It was with great disappointment that I listened a few days ago to Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Donald Trump. I was similarly disappointed the next day when I heard Rush Limbaugh proffer simply that “Nationalism and populism have overtaken conservatism in terms of appeal.” It’s tough when you find that your heroes are less than… Read more »

Although I Love Donald Trump, I’ll Be Voting For Ted Cruz

By 32 Comments 5,821 views

UPDATE: This post originally stated the 4th Amendment kept govt from taking citizen’s property. NJMike was kind enough to point out that it is of course the 5th. Which just goes to show the wisdom of that century old adage: Never write a blog while drinking beer and watching football… I love Donald Trump. For… Read more »

Immigrants, Slaves, Redistribution and a Cult of Personality: Barack Obama and the Last Days of the Roman Republic

By 8 Comments 1,440 views

Late last year I started listening to the History of Rome app. While functionally terrible, content wise it’s quite good. Having been many years since I read Roman history, it’s a welcome refresher for those things I’ve forgotten and an education for many more I never learned in the first place. It’s an extraordinary history,… Read more »

Gratitude at Christmastime… For our Freedom of Speech

By 1 Comment 777 views

Christmas is, among other things, a time for gratitude. Gratitude of course comes in many shapes and sizes. Some people feel gratitude for family, others for health, others for prosperity and some for all of those things and more and no doubt some for much less. Whatever one’s situation here in the United States, we,… Read more »
