Where Have Our Pioneers Gone?

“I have to vote for the lesser of two evils until the good candidate has a chance to win.” You might think this sounds pragmatic, but really, it’s nothing more than glory-seeking cowardice. Pioneers have defined our world. The first ones to stand against slavery will never have a stories written about them, but without them, we’d still have people in chains. The first people … Continue reading Where Have Our Pioneers Gone?

2020 Will Get Worse: The Election is a Looming Disaster

If you are thinking that surely we have seen the the worst that 2020 has to offer, I hate to be the bearer of bad news but I ardently believe you are wrong. The November election is taking shape to be a storm that could easily make these other disasters and near-disasters pale in comparison.

I Endorse Vermin Supreme

I was angry that they would make the Libertarian Party less respected by the establishment. The joke was on me though: they helped me realize that the establishment never would respect we heretics who stray outside of the two-party system.

He’s inauthentic about his wealth, he didn’t apologize to the women sexually assaulted during his campaign until he decided he wanted to run for president again, and he’s frequently supported expanding government at the expense of American lives, freedom, and rights. That being said, it’s time to recruit his followers for liberty. … Continue reading Bringing in the Bernie Bros

Do You Want a House of Cards Election?

Is it absurd to think that some states might not certify results? Is it ridiculous to imagine Democratic swing-state governors and secretary of states refusing to certify results to deny Trump a clear victory? Is it absurd to think that a President who fancies himself a king might even postpone the election if it was looking like his defeat was likely? Continue reading Do You Want a House of Cards Election?

Timelapse of the Democratic Primary – From Iowa to Super Tuesday

Over the past month, I’ve used FiveThirtyEight’s Democratic Primary Forecast and the always-fun 270ToWin map generator tools to produce a timelapse of the national Democratic primary. I started this project the day of the Iowa Caucuses, and have collected data up to the results of Super Tuesday. Continue reading Timelapse of the Democratic Primary – From Iowa to Super Tuesday
