GOP Establishment Running Their 1964 Stop Goldwater Plan Against Trump

There are a lot of parallels between 1964 and 2016, but the most important one is this: By defeating Goldwater, establishment Republicans created the opportunity for Democrats and their progressive Republican allies to bankrupt the country in a war that lacked a strategy for victory and to enact the regulatory and welfare regime that continues to plague our economy and limit our liberty fifty years on.

RIP Representative Phil Crane

Phil Crane passed away on Saturday. What a different world it might be had Crane, instead of George H.W. Bush, been chosen as Ronald Reagan's Vice President. The wake for former Congressman Crane will be Thursday, Nov. 13 from 6 PM to 8 PM at the Loudon Funeral Chapel at 158 Catoctin Circle, SE. in Leesburg, Va.
