Gridlocking the Government: The High Moral Ground

Written by Gary North on October 17, 2015

The American political establishment usually operates in terms of bipartisan cooperation between the political parties. The goal of the political parties is essentially identical: expand the power of the federal government. This has been true since approximately 1789. This is not some new development. Politicians want to expand the degree of control they have over […]

The Unspoken Truth About Gun Control

Written by Gary North on October 10, 2015

Political activists are more entrenched on this issue than any other issue in American life. Somebody might say that legalized abortion would be the top candidate. I don’t think that’s the case. Opponents of abortion are not going to change, but the degree of commitment has faded over the last two decades. The futility of […]

Lonely Nazis Among Us

Written by Gary North on October 10, 2015

Within the far Right, there are Nazis. Real ones. I received this email on October 6: Since no one will say this, I will. Europe desperately needs another Adolf Hitler. And so does North America.

Written by Gary North on January 21, 2015

In the bad old days, it took a lot of money and time to produce a 30-minute Right-wing documentary. Documentaries were filmed, which was costly. Almost no one ever saw these documentaries. They had no impact. They were the Right-wing equivalent of the public school videos they used to show us on topics such as […]

Why Dan Quayle Did Not Hire Me in 1977

Written by Gary North on December 29, 2014

In early 1977, I needed a job. I had been Ron Paul’s research assistant. He had been defeated by fewer than 300 votes out of 180,000 the previous November. I still thought I might stay in Washington. I did not get a job on Capitol Hill. I did not stay in Washington. For this, I […]

A Conservative Republican Senator Calls for More Government Action

Written by Gary North on November 13, 2014

If you think anything is going to change in Washington, think again. The utter bankruptcy of Republican conservatism can be seen in this brief report on Senator Jeff Sessions from Alabama. Senator Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) called for Republicans to embrace “a humble and honest populism” as they consider changing immigration law and writing a […]
