Conservatives Keep Losing Because They’re Reading The Wrong Books

For the past four years. conservatives have worried more about being right while liberals worried about winning. We all know how that worked out.

Studies Show Most Americans Are Too Stupid to Vote

Do Not Push

The new fad among Democrats is to see how many illegal aliens they can pack into a voting booth.  While we conservatives decry this illegal and anti-American grab at tyrannical power, we should take some solace in this sobering fact: those illegal aliens probably know as much about the American political system as most 13th …
