Imprisoning convicted criminals for longer and longer periods sounds like an appealing and commonsense proposal to many people. After all, when lawbreakers are locked up they can't commit more crimes and law-abiding citizens are safer. Right? Actually, wrong.
Tiger Woods experienced perhaps the greatest fall from grace of any celebrity in American history.

President Trump identifies the hatred and intolerance expressed by his radical opponents and names it for what it is.

I'm concerned about the integrity of American elections.
You don't need a brilliant sleuth like Sherlock Holmes to figure out that the claims of Trump-Russia collusion were false. The bumbling Inspector Clouseau could have figured it out.
Americans needs to understand that the election of Donald Trump has forestalled our slide into the abyss of cultural Marxism and the surrendering of our national heritage and identity to that of the global community.
The real reason Democrats are pushing for universal mail-in balloting has nothing to do with the global pandemic which originated in China; they simply believe it will help them win elections.

Liberals like to say there aren't any limitations on speech, and it's true that they can say or do just about anything. But conservatives apparently can't even stand still while wearing a MAGA hat without crossing a line.

The simple truth is that America is locking up too many people, for too long, and spending too much money on them.
Regulation often helps Big Industry remain entrenched in power. The burdensome costs of complying with any new regulation would be a rounding error for the likes of Facebook and Google, but it might completely destroy a promising start-up poised to challenge their dominance.
Having Democrats control both houses of Congress and the White House would be a nightmare.

It is part of our human nature to want to be liked. It is part of our human nature to worry about what others think of us.

One of the first things President Trump did to stimulate the economy was to remove harmful regulations that left our small banks, energy companies and other businesses treading water to stay afloat.
A healthy economy is a foundation for a healthy future.
Yes, America is a nation of immigrants - but the immigrants have to enter legally.
Crime associated with our border is a serious threat to the general welfare of real citizens, and after all, isn't it the general welfare of citizens that the Constitution calls upon government to promote?
While freedom-loving people like libertarians and conservatives wish to provide the illumination of facts and the focus of reason for young people so that they might see and think clearly, those who call themselves progressives favor the classic totalitarian tactic of indoctrination.
As government imposes the will of a few upon the many, the many begin to resist. Ultimately, it becomes necessary for the government to use force to make the people conform.

Political correctness is the deadliest of political weaponry.
Democrats have long been the party of voter fraud.
The United States has been turned into a mindless true-false test, instead of the complex essay exam, it should be. You are either for open borders, or you are racist and anti-immigration. It just doesn't work that way.
America's young people deserve more than a mediocre future - and we now have demonstrated proof that President Trump is building a path for our success.
One of the most horrifying and surprising evolutions we have witnessed among our widespread campus network is the rapid movement away from tolerating opposing ideas and respectful debate to the deployment of obscene bully tactics from the left.

Democratic socialists like Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Rep.-elect Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., would have us believe that Big Government funded by extremely high taxes - in countries like France - can create fair and just societies with widespread prosperity, little if any poverty, and a happy and contended population.
When you deliberately distort and selectively present the truth, you lie.
For years, elites in both political parties have ignored the illegal immigration crisis growing on America's southern border.

The left has viewed the coronavirus pandemic as a political 'opportunity' from the start.
To many Americans, saying the United States will never be socialist is rhetorical: Of course it won't - we have a Constitution that forbids it.

If you believe all the information out there about millennials you'd have to conclude we had multiple personalities.
Many textbooks fail to present students with both sides of an issue. Students are being pushed toward an education that demonizes free enterprise while advocating top-down government, deficit spending and class warfare.
I started a college campus-based nonprofit in June 2012 called Turning Point U.S.A. to target millennials in college. Our mission was to create a powerful conservative grassroots activist network on campuses and identify, educate, train and organize students to promote the principles of freedom, free markets and limited government.
Once we're ignored or dismissed long enough, conservatives seem to just shrug our collective shoulders and accept defeat. It's this type of passivity that has allowed progressives to dominate film and television, universities and large swaths of the mainstream news media.
Liberal-socialist women generalize about women as if they are some sort of monolithic voting block of disenfranchised, victimized citizens. — © Charlie Kirk

Since I started Turning Point U.S.A., almost all millennials are off the college campuses, where the organization and I continue to focus much of our efforts.
People start to yawn when you warn them about a move toward socialism. It seems abstract. But if you discuss the issues that arise from high taxes, oppressive regulation, seizure of private property, and dictating of individual behavior, people understand them, and they reject them.
When students have access to low-interest loans and government aid, colleges have no incentive to cut costs. Why should a college lower tuition if more students are able to pay with subsidized loans from the government?
Young people in college - many living away from their parents for the first time in their lives - are particularly vulnerable to the leftist propaganda campaign designed to turn them away from supporting president Trump and turning them away from believing in American exceptionalism.
We have been indoctrinated to see the world through a politically correct lens.
The case for socialism is always made based on an ideal and a promise. The ideal is that humans can lovingly coexist in a sharing and peaceful way. The promise is that this time, unlike failed attempts elsewhere, socialism will be implemented properly, and no citizen will suffer as a result.
