If Democrats want to win elected office once again, shouldn't they adopt policies that people actually care about? Most people are interested in good paying jobs and they are not fixated on the latest "outrage" -- such as the misguided view that a boy can become a girl just because they feel that way. Our own personal view is that if a man thinks he is a woman, it is literally a mental disorder. It is similar to if a man thought he is a dog. There are certain properties to things that exist in this world. You cannot just say A is B. It is not.

Donald Trump picks Betty DeVos for Secretary of Education. Shouldn't Republicans be talking about eliminating this unnecessary department rather than funding it? Government-run education does not work! Why are we doing this?

Democrats never respect election results--unless they win the election. As Mark Levin pointedly said, Democrats have a "totalitarian mindset." What this means is that Democrats believe that regardless of election results, their political prescriptions should still be implemented into law. Democrats seem to sometimes think that they are Vladmir Putin and do not have to worry about elections. No matter who wins, they demand that their backward, regressive policies be enacted into law. Americans do not care about your fetish for Paris-climate agreement and other global warming/climate change laws. Democrats, you lost the election. Your policies will be reversed.

A lot of Americans gave up looking for work during the Obama era because there really wasn't any work to be had. Economic growth was minimal. Few people received raises, but there was plenty of inflation that had existed during this time period. Even many liberals noticed that things were not going well but they refused to acknowledge the reason why things have not been going well. Long-term, I can't imagine voters continuing to re-elect a party, the Democrats, that really was quite comfortable with a declining, poorer, America. The people tend to get things right if they have enough time to correct for their prior mistakes. Cheers to the power of voters!

What should Donald Trump do as president? We believe that quickly reversing the statist vision of the federal government and moving towards freedom and liberty for millions of Americans is the absolute best course of action. To do so, repealing Obamacare and significantly lowering corporate income tax rates needs to be on the top of the list of things that should be done in the first 100 days in office. I would be interested in hearing what you think Donald Trump should do as president.

Unlike the leftist mobs who are protesting around the country, we happen to believe America is truly a special place that has secured individual rights for its citizens. We do not understand the mob mentality that has resulted in cry baby snowflakes protesting an election that has taken place and is now final. Also, why would someone protest with Mexican flags!? This isn't Mexico!

The stupidity of the public never ceases to amaze me. I actually saw someone buy a full-priced version of Dianetics at the Scientology counter at the Glendale Galleria. This Scientology cultists probably charged the customer $40 for this book! Even if you really want to buy this book, you don't have to buy it from Scientology. It is available on Amazon.com for a penny ($3.99 shipping charge!) A sucker is born every minute!

My own experience with multiculturalists is that they usually don't know a lot about most parts of the world. They usually respond with a great degree of irrational contempt at any indication that there are cultural differences, and that some places are just blame wastelands because the cultures in those areas are bankrupt. I suppose multiculturalism appeals to the ill informed because it is much easier, from a distance, without reading about different cultures, to just say that they are all equal and be done with the issue. However, even the most ardent multiculturalist will not suggest taking a vacation in Kabul, Somalia, Benghazi, or the Sudan. (Yet, at the same time, they want to bring people from those areas here, because once they are on American soil, things will be fine somehow!) The multiculturalists are also not able to explain why most cars are from the United States, Japan, Germany, or South Korea. (If all countries were equal, wouldn't cars be made in every part of the world?) The best cameras are also made in Germany and Japan. Multiculturalism is an attempt to escape from reality by giving us a fictional account of life in the world.
Governor Brown signed a bunch of laws that restrict law-abiding Americans from owning certain types of guns. But he did veto one gun-related law. He vetoed a law that would have made the theft of any gun a felony (right now it can be a misdemeanor if the gun is worth less than $750!) Democrats are the party of criminals! No wonder they support restoring the voting rights of felons.

I think we might need a pause on immigration for 20 to 30 years. I don't think we have enough assimilation lately. The purpose of immigration is to benefit the existing American society. When we see protesters holding foreign flags, ballots in foreign languages, and thousands of refugees being brought to America who have hostile views of America, it is obvious that something is entirely wrong. At the very least, what we should consider doing is repealing all of the existing immigration laws (which would not allow any immigration) and starting from scratch and determining who we, as a people, believe should be allowed in. Congress has complete discretion on who we should allow in.
Further, allowing a lot fewer people allows the so-called screeners to have more time to evaluate who we are bringing in. I don't have much confidence in bureaucracy, but if you're bringing in millions of people, by definition, I am sure we're allowing in a lot of bad apples because there is no way to know who is really coming.

Diversity is not a strength! How can it be that "diversity is our strength" when the evidence suggests otherwise? Where is the evidence that admitting backward, third world losers actually helps our economy. Banning Islam, Islamists, the Koran, and illiterate immigrants would benefit our country!

It's funny how people claim that Donald Trump did spectacularly well in California. Actually, he did very poorly. Donald Trump received 787,408 votes in the California Republican primary, which was 77.4% of the vote. Let's compare this to other Republicans from the past: In 2000, George W. Bush was the Republican primary winner with 1,725,162 votes! In 2004, George W. Bush ran unopposed and got 2,216,047! He increased his share of the vote even when he was not running against anyone! In 2008, John McCain got 1,238,988 votes. In 2012, Mitt Romney received 1,328415 votes. Thus, Donald Trump's performance is the worst Republican winner of the California Primary in 16 years. Lots of Republicans are not voting for Mr. Trump. It's obvious. Not all of us have gone to Trump University.

A lot of people incorrectly believe that the financial system is stable. The biggest problem is that people interpret the status quo as stable when in fact there are many problems that underly our contemporary economy. The wonderful book "The Big Short," shows that people who think critically may have a good chance of understanding inherent weaknesses that exist in our economy, and, even more importantly, may have an opportunity to place spectacular bets against irrationality.

We can't endorse the candidacy of Donald Trump for President of the United States. Donald Trump is unfit for high-office. He is an amoral man, an economic illiterate, an imbecile and proud of his anti-intellectualism and lazy understanding of the world. The problem with Donald Trump is that he does not have a particular political philosophy in which he views the world. Instead, the man makes everything about himself, self-promotion, personal aggrandizement, and other signals of insecurity.
