It’s refreshing to hear a clearly cultural defense of the newly revived nation state from Nigel Farage. It is widely recognized that a smaller, local government tends to be more responsive to citizen needs, and the US system of federalism balancing national and state government power reflects that philosophy. As former Czech President Vaclav Klaus […]
The GOP really is the Stupid Party. Many Republicans are uncritical believers in the “Free Trade” religion despite its history of failure. Globalist trade deals have been disastrous for American workers: trade supporters promise jobs and prosperity but it has been a series of sellouts starting with NAFTA. Free trade has all been a big lie, and now […]
Our elected representatives are currently busy working to a approve another big trade deal — the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) plus fast track — the details of which are secret.

In the video report below from RT (Russian TV), political scientist Sylvia Kritzinger of the University of Vienna remarks, “A lot of people from the working class, blue-collar workers, less educated people are voting for the extreme right […]
Presumably the Washington Post‘s diversity-loving editors imagined a pairing of liberal academic Robert Putnam and (nominal) Republican Jeb Bush would be a dandy show of the bipartisan propaganda for maintaining vast numbers of immigrants and illegal aliens.
Robert Putnam is a well known social scientist whose work indicated that diversity decreases trust and lessens social capital. […]
