A new study seems to indicate that political campaign are mostly useless when it comes to swaying voters to choose one candidate or the other.

African-American pundit and radio host Larry Elder wonders if “facts matter” to the national anthem protesters? Probably not.

On Tax cuts the only question is … what took so long?

The Alabama Senate primary blowout seems to signal the end of the McConnell era of leading the GOP. Outsider candidate, Judge Roy Moore (R-AL) easily defeated his establishment opponent, Senator Luther Strange (R-AL) in a primary that saw the GOP spend millions in a futile effort.

It is long past time for Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) to hand over the reins of party leadership to younger, more principled leadership.

If President Trump stopped using his personal Twitter account it might help to improve his overall approval numbers.

It seems that Putin’s computer nerds were busy buying advertisements on all sides in an effort to sow discord in the USA.

Constitution.com 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
