Steve Deace is on a roll recently with his articles.

Your mama should’ve taught you two wrongs don’t make a right.

Many of the monuments and statues now being abominated and disassembled were not erected in the immediate aftermath of the Civil War but some years after, often in reaction to such modest advances in the political and social condition of African Americans as the early 20th century produced. Some were nothing short of consecrated shrines to white supremacy erected to Southern political powers in league with such miscreants as the Ku Klux Klan. To the extent that today’s reaction against these monuments is in essence Democrats cleaning up their own mess, there is some justice to it.

True conservatives need to let most of these statues fall (legally and safely of course). It was racist Democrats that built most of them. With that said, these same modern day Democrats would probably go nuts if the pyramids in Egypt were removed for the same reasons. So as we help take down these Democratic monuments, perhaps we should help educated our new found friends about their hypocrisy.

"When one side of our political duopoly pursues with zeal an agenda determined to undo that which made America exceptional, that’s bad enough. But when their only real opposition decides they’d rather emote than engage, and prefers the performance to policy, that’s when Don Meredith starts to sing 'turn out the lights, the party’s over.'"

There were plenty of hot takes over the weekend. I wanted to be a little more thoughtful about my response to what happened in Charlottesville.

The Alt-Right is bad, VERY bad. But if you don't know what the "Alt-Right" really is, how can you properly criticize it? Those that criticize the alt-right without knowing what all it really entails may be contributing to it's reach and making things worse.

And it just continues. The establishment continue to fight tooth and nail against true conservatives.

This has got to be one of the clearest explanations of all the investigations going on in Washington. :)

Historically, Democrats' patriotism appears to have been susceptible to considerations such as which party occupies the White House and how the U.S. is faring internationally, while Republicans' patriotism has been more consistent over time.

I think this poll indirectly highlights the stark difference in views on the role of government by each political persuasion. I also think it may directly correlate with the personality of Democrats versus Republicans.

There are some disclaimers that may need to be addressed, such that party labels are becoming less accurate to determine what one actually believes, but overall across the country, Republican and Democratic voters are still very different from each other.

I take away several thoughts on this data:

1) Democrats believe that the government is the most capable of solving issues. And when someone that they disagree with is in power, they fear that their problems will ever be solved and that America is not capable of doing anything good.

2) Democrats appear more emotional or perhaps even feel more unstable. As the winds change, they change. This is something that is not good for leadership. A leader needs to be secure and built on a solid foundation that doesn't get washed away in floods and tough times. They go from highs when American is in danger and attacked on a grand scale to lows when their party loses power across the board to the opposing party.

3) Republicans don't hold their pride in America hostage by a few elected officials that change ever few years. They view America as a country based on a solid foundation and document called the constitution that doesn't change on the whims of a few judges. Whereas the Democrats believe that a pure democracy should dictate the rules of society. This can be scary as people's beliefs often change and a few media personalities can change the public's opinions quickly. Whereas the Democrats think one or two people in government can (and should in their opinion) make drastic changes. Republicans do not. They believe that if our government is run by the rules set forth in the constitution, one or two people aren't going to make a huge difference.

I am not so sure that Trump was bamboozled as I think he has always been part of the establishment, but the rest of this is definitely true. We need true conservative leadership.
