“A Republic, if you can keep it.” Donald Trump and the Tyranny of the Mob…

By 127 Comments 6,348 views

  For the last eight years I’ve been shaking my head, simply bewildered that so many Americans could be so insane as to vote for Barack Obama for president.

Time and time again I have been accused of being on the “wrong side of history” when it comes to the arguments over abortion and, especially, to so-called gay marriage.

I am one of the few Americans who seem surprised by today’s news: Dennis Kucinich has dropped out of the Presidential race.
