Many tell us what to think. I ask my readers to be skeptical. Question me and others.

Life and politics

The GOP of Reagan is gone

There are two objectives in governing. The first is creating a political environment where individuals pursuing their happiness can enrich themselves and the nation. The second is to distribute that wealth in a way so even more people can multiply it. After all, this was how America became great the first time.

Reagan understood it. His decisions stimulated wealth growth. His successors screwed up the distribution part. Too many Americans did not participate in that prosperity. We have very few profusely rich who can easily exploit American opportunities. A shrinking middle class can hardly do it because Americans there are struggling from sliding to a dependency on ongoing government support.

None of that understanding one could find from the mouths of GOP presidential candidates, regardless if one watched them on Fox News or on X.
