Even better, as a Tennessee resident who had the opportunity to support the “Yes on 1” campaign, it was thrilling and gratifying to see that amendment pass, allowing for my Bible-belt state […]

How do we stop America’s voter-assisted suicide?

The (mostly) controlled game is on and the (mostly) contrived drama is thick. “Will the Republicans be returned to power in the Senate?” “Will the Democrats be taught a painful lesson?” “Will the country be saved from […]
