Government Must Preserve and Defend the Sacred Freedoms of All Individuals
What is government but a collection of individuals working together to manage the affairs of a larger population? As individuals, each government worker has a choice.

Part 1 of the Gray Republican Committee's event:
"The Immigration Crisis at the Southern Border"
May 8, 2019 ~ Gray, Maine
In the flurry of opinions about immigration, border walls, compassion for immigrants and their children, economics, and an influx of crime, there is a larger, more urgent, and civilization-changing crisis: the real probability that open-borders immigration would destroy American sovereignty and exceptionalism. more
Open-Borders Immigration Would Destroy American Sovereignty and Exceptionalism
This is the essay upon which my speech at the Gray Republicans' May 8, 2019 event on the Crisis of Immigration at the Southern Border was based.
In the flurry of opinions about immigration, border walls, compassion for immigrants and their children, economics, and an influx of crime, there is a larger, more urgent, and civilization-changing crisis: the real probability that open-borders immigration would destroy American sovereignty and exceptionalism. more
Identity Politics is a Revenge-Driven Tragedy That Will Make the Whole World Blind
In Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s book Strength to Love, he wrote:
Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.
The healing of the human race requires an adjustment in the values of humanity. When love becomes the most valuable thing of all, then we do indeed have hope to abandon the revenge-driven tragedy of identity politics. more

Good-hearted Liberals are #WalkingAway
An excellent article by Kira Davis:
"Progressives Are Determined To Make Conservatives Out of Perfectly Fine Liberals"
"The progressive left should be very careful. Look to Dave Rubin for what can happen to a person’s mindset when they are constantly and unfairly admonished for having independent thoughts. The space to the right of center is filled with people just like Rubin. I am one of them." more

If the Senate and House are lost to Democrats, America may be lost—or at least tragically damaged. Just remember the damage done in eight years of Obama's Rule. Yes, Trump can veto laws, but the damage done in the next two years by a Democrat majority will be severe. more

Immigration System in “system-wide meltdown.”

Questions:
1. Should the Mexican border be completely open like the border between Maine and New Hampshire, so that millions can immigrate at will into the United States?

2. Should we ignore the border crossings of drug traffickers, MS-13 gang members, and jihad terrorists?
