“A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies.”
-George Washington, First Annual Address, to both House of Congress (8 January 1790)
Hey, I know you’ve paid into Social Security all your working life through payroll taxes that were automatically deducted from your checks each pay period, but now that you’re eligible to receive those benefits we’re gonna need you to pay income tax on that.

Why Trump is a popular option.People have had it.
They are tapped out and they look around to see the elites partying and dancing while the rest of the country is slowly crumbling away.
They see entire industries sold away or shutdown by ever more onerous regulations, taking their jobs with them. They also see the trend of people who seeming never actually doing anything worthwhile making the rounds of Washington and Wall St and walking away with millions for speeches that nobody can remember and selling access to our enemies. The wonder isn’t that Trump is likely to be the next President, but that the people are not burning Washington down.
