A PRE-MORTEM: Crisis of the Conservative House Divided.

It's long, but a worthy read. So read it; then vote for Trump; then work for the next 8 years to guide him and Mike Pence in the right direction.
THOMAS SOWELL on immigration:
Both in the present and in the past, some immigrant groups have made great contributions to American society, and others have contributed mainly to the welfare rolls and the prisons.

People who came here a hundred years ago usually did so in order to fit within the framework of America and become Americans. Some still do. But many come from a very different cultural background -- and our own multiculturalism dogmas and grievance industry work to keep them foreign and resentful of Americans who have achieved more than they have.

Some immigrant groups seek to bring to America the very cultures whose failures led them to flee to this country. Not all individual immigrants and not all immigrant groups. But too many Americans have become so gullible that they are afraid to even get the facts about which immigrants have done well and improved America, and which have become a burden that can drag us all down.
Think about it when you go to vote on November 8th.
THOMAS SOWELL'S random thoughts. Read them.
Republicans tell people “In the long-term, our policies are going to make society more prosperous”; the Democrats say “We’re going to give you free sh*t NOW.”
Guess which one is more popular.
WHY PROFESSORS are writing crap no one reads.
Ideally, the great academic minds of a society should be put to work for the sake of building up that society and addressing its problems. Instead, most Western academics today are using their intellectual capital to answer questions that nobody’s asking on pages that nobody’s reading.

What a waste.

It would be, if there were any 'great academic minds' left in academia.
HE'S NOT HAPPY? Meet the guy whose health insurance premium more than doubled.
TOWNHALL: The Hillary I know: "[N]o one should feel comfortable with her taking the public tour of the White House, let alone living there."
SO WHERE WOULD THEY GO? 35% of federal workers may consider leaving their jobs if Trump wins.

Except that they'd probably wind up on welfare, I'd consider it win-win.
