We may not agree with the law of gravity, but it's not going to change. If we accommodate it, life goes more smoothly. We may not agree with the laws of human nature and economics, but they're not going to change. If we accommodate them, life goes more smoothly. History has taught us over and over that lowering taxes fosters a growing, healthy economy, that decreasing regulations on business does the same and that decreasing government jobs increases private jobs.

Decreasing welfare decreases poverty. Eliminating farm subsidies increases production and increases farmers' income. Decreasing unions' power increases employment. Increasing the strength of our military decreases the will of our enemies to attack us. Increasing gun ownership and swiftly punishing criminals decreases crime.

People of a given race and culture prefer to associate with others of the same race and culture. People of a given race and culture prefer to be governed by people of the same race and culture. Decreased government involvement in education means better education. Non-socialized medicine means more care and better care. Decreasing donations to most environmental groups increases our petroleum industry, our economy and our independence. Most politicians are self-serving. The fewer lawyers we send to Congress, the fewer laws. Hollywood, public education, CBS, NBC, ABC and AP hide the truths we need to know.

And we've learned what happens when we vote for politicians who haven't learned from history.
