Tulsi Gabbard could be the president America needs

With every passing year, politicians grow more confident in their ability to thrust Americans into another war, to make decisions that benefit themselves and not their constituents, and to increase their profits as the average American can hardly scrape by. Few politicians take a stand against this, to what has become the norm, and when they do, the mainstream media will either smear them or not cover them at all. It takes a soldier-president to reverse this course. Fortunately, we have such a c...

Democrat Tulsi Gabbard wins coveted David Duke endorsement

Congresswoman and presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) has won the endorsement of former KKK leader David Duke. Wait, what? A "Tulsi Gabbard for President" banner features the banner tagline, "Finally a candidate who will actually put America First rather than Israel First!" Duke also endorsed Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential election. Though Gabbard does have some reactionary credentials (she's a notorious homophobe, among other things), Duke's probably trolling as she's oth...

Hawkish establishment goes after Tulsi Gabbard

This year it seems every Democrat with a minimum of name recognition is considering running for president. For the party, the surge of enthusiasm comes with a few risks. The biggest is a messy intra-party fight. And so far, the worst sign of the consequences of that conflict is the early effort to torpedo the nascent campaign of Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii. Gabbard isn’t like the Democrats’ typical candidates. But she’s not one of the restive moderates or the activist socialists, either. On clo...

Why the Logan Act should be repealed

Congress should repeal the Logan Act. Modern, globalized communications have destroyed any remaining rationale for this outdated law. The Logan Act today potentially criminalizes much routine (and constitutionally-protected) speech of US citizens. During the presidency of John Adams, Dr. George Logan, a private citizen, engaged in freelance diplomacy with the government of revolutionary France. The Federalists, then in control of the federal government, were not pleased by what they perceived as...
