How? If the states that were contested in the last presidential election were predominantly under the control of Republicans — along with the White House, Supreme Court, Senate and the majority of the federal jurists — how did the Democrats steal the election?

The answer is simple. It would be impossible. Too many Republicans today have chosen to only believe what they want to be true.

The real mistake in Afghanistan was staying for 20 years when we should have left as heroes 19 years sooner. The situation in the Middle East can never be solved by our presence.

I don’t know how to solve these problems, but I do know what won’t work.
