Election 2016: Time for Libertarians to Dump Bill Weld

By Thomas L Knapp I didn’t pay much attention in 1972 when vice-presidential candidate Thomas Eagleton was removed from  the Democratic ticket and replaced by Sargent Shriver after it came to light that Eagleton had a record of psychiatric hospitalizations.

Trump’s Wall: Be Careful What You Wish For

. . By Thomas L. Knapp Remember Donald Trump’s promise to not only build a US-Mexico border wall, but make Mexico pay for it?
