Conservatives Should Embrace Principled Populism

It’s not a guarantee of a Trump win, but the latest polls have the billionaire leading in some key swing states,

Justice Reform Is At An Historic Crossroad

Bob Barr,  While professional athletes like second-string NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick engage in immature “protests” over some perceived peeve with our country’s criminal justice system, Republicans in Congress are diligently working to meaningfully improve America’s justice system.  Whether they succeed in their historic effort, however, remains up in the air and its future may very
