Will the Real Populism Please Stand Up?

Will the Real Populism Please Stand Up?

. by Thomas L. Knapp Writing at The American Conservative, Mike Lofgren tears into the guts of Billionaire at the Barricades: The Populist Revolution from Reagan to Trump, the latest book by Republican political commentator Laura Ingraham. Lofgren’s two key points — that Donald Trump is no populist, and that conservatism is not populism — […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise — Several Reasons I Am Not A Conservative

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise — Several Reasons I Am Not A Conservative

  By L. Neil Smith   Over the past few weeks, I have experienced a couple of interesting e-mail phenomena. First, while there never seems to be an end to generous offers concerning reverse mortgages, dubious imaginary currencies, or enhancing my sexual organs, fewer and fewer of my messages are personal, i.e., specifically directed at me. At the […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise — Observations of Collectivism

. By L. Neil Smith  I was reading an article the other day about some guy named Kris Kobach, who is the Republican Secretary of State for the state of Kansas. It seems that he has accepted a job writing regularly for Breitbart, which has caused every “progressive” head within a thousand miles to explode. […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise — August Madness from North Korea to Melania’s Shoes

. By L. Neil Smith  And that word is “pneumonia”. That’s why I’ve been out of circulation for just about three weeks. I went down to Denver recently with my lovely and talented wife Cathy to watch the Colorado Rockies play at beautiful Coors Field on three consecutive days. It was like a trip to […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise — The Cure for Medical Socialism

. By L. Neil Smith  Over the years that I’ve involved myself in politics, there has been one idiotic thing that people say — if you count liberal “progressive” Democrats as people — that fills me with a special amazement and contempt at just how stupid they have let themselves become. It usually begins, “Out […]

L. Neil Smith’s THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE — Regime Change!

L. Neil Smith’s THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE — Regime Change!

. By L. Neil Smith  It makes me sick to keep hearing the mostly Democratic assertion that Donald J. Trump is a candidate foisted on us poor, gullible Americans by the Russian government. This is largely a matter of psychological projection by the left, and of mind-boggling hypocrisy. Previous American governments (mostly Democratic) have a […]

L. Neil Smith’s THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE — I’m Back!

My own wife Cathy and I preceded […]

L. Neil Smith’s THE LIBERTARIAN ENTERPRISE — Straitjacket America

. By L. Neil Smith It’s very difficult to convey the unreality, the surrealism of things that those of us who think for a living (or at least a serious hobby) have been subjected to, since the General Election last November, and especially since Inauguration Day in January. The other day I found myself embroiled […]
