    In the Spirit of Body Politic,


    #2016Election should make us rethink our approach to politicians


    Those of us on the right who oppose Donald Trump’s candidacy are, in one sense, to be pitied. The choice between clownish and vitriolic populism, on the one hand, and Clintonian knavery, on the other, is not one we ever wanted to make. We are bewildered and, for this election year at least, emotionally detached ...

    White Nationalists Aren’t Buying Trump’s Paul Ryan Endorsement

    For months, Trump has been their hero. Now a ‘boringly conventional’ pat on the back to the speaker of the House is dashing the glimmer of a dream


    The white nationalists didn’t buy it. Trump was coming off the worst week of his campaign, during which he insulted the mother of a fallen U.S. Army captain in Iraq, dragged a fire marshal’s name through the mud, and made a point of saying he was not ready to back the campaigns of Ryan and Sen. John McCain. To some of Trump’s most fervent supporters on the fringe, Friday night’s brief hat-tip to both men came off like a child pleading with a teacher to get out of timeout ...

    Third-Party Candidate With GOP Backing, Money Joining Race


    A newcomer to elective politics is jumping into the White House race.

    Evan McMullin, chief Republican policy director of the House Republican conference and an alumnus of the CIA, announced Monday that he is launching a third-party presidential campaign. He has also brought a campaign website online.

    "In a year where Americans have lost faith in the candidates of both major parties, it's time for a generation of new leadership to step up," McMullin told ABC News ...

    My Fellow Americans,

    Our American Nation is the greatest experiment in freedom the world has ever known. It’s given generations of citizens the blessings of liberty ever since the Founding Fathers risked their lives in what seemed like an improbable bid for independence. While the republic they created was one of imperfect freedoms, for 240 years the arc of progress and liberty has moved ever-upward. Even in times of economic crisis and war, our nation has been a singular source of hope for people throughout the world yearning for liberty, dignity and opportunity ...
