The Political Spectrum (Part II) — The Center: A Democracy or a Constitutional Republic?

"...Republicans, Libertarians, and Objectivists (i.e., the political philosophy of Ayn Rand [1905-1982; photo, left] the great Russian-American author, novelist and thinker) believe the functions of government are limited to those immediately enumerated in the U.S. Constitution..."

"The Right versus Left...political arrangement came from the seating position of National Assembly delegates during the French Revolution, but ... I have found it easier to have a political spectrum based on degrees of government control."


Stalin's Mysteriious DeathStalin's Mysterious Death

In a historic medical article published in Surgical Neurology International, Dr. Faria cites compelling evidence that the Soviet dictator was likely poisoned under the direction of his right hand henchman, Lavrenti Beria, with the very probable connivance of Nikita Khrushchev, who eventually succeeded Stalin and went on to dismantle Stalin's Cult of Personality and expose the "errors" of the former regime.

Much has been written and said about Donald Trump, and much more will be — probably too much. But let me add a few words that, I hope, will shed some light on the Trump phenomenon.

● On April 28, Trump spoke at a rally in Costa Mesa, a city in largely conservative Orange County, California. Large crowds of unruly demonstrators blocked streets in an unsuccessful attempt to prevent Trump supporters from entering the rally. Large numbers of law-enforcement officers, some mounted on horses, were well prepared, and prevented the demonstrators from getting out of control.

Nevertheless, police cars were damaged, motorists were pelted with debris, and at least one Trump supporter was bloodied — and felt grateful to escape with his life. (photo, right. Courtesy NBC)

When was the last time you saw a person in a Hillary, Bernie, or Cruz T-shirt beaten bloody? You never did? What does this say about the opponents of Trump?

● On April 29, Trump was scheduled to speak at a Republican Party function at the Hyatt Hotel in Burlingame, California, a liberal suburb of liberal San Francisco. Here is a young demonstrator (photo, below), expressing his family’s...

while anyone who is still a liberal at 40 has no head.
— Winston Churchill (1874-1965) quoted in
The Hartford Courant, a Connecticut newspaper.

 

Two recent surveys are quite alarming, but we should not be surprised that the mainstream media have promulgated them with undisguised jubilation. A Harvard University study found 51% of Americans, ages 18-29, “do not support capitalism,” only 42% support it. These finding dovetail results obtained by Republican pollster Frank Luntz, who found that 58% of Americans, ages 18-26, “believe socialism to be the ‘more compassionate’ political system,” while 29% further opined, “the root of America’s problem in one word is ‘greed.’ ”

To make the upcoming political landscape seemingly worse for conservatives, the U.S. Census Bureau reported Millennials (ages 18-34) have surpassed Baby Boomers (ages 51-69) as “the nation's largest living generation,” possibly soon becoming the largest voting bloc. The purported altruism and liberalism of the Millennials have, incidentally,...
