Let’s get down to business. You’re not going to like what I say, based on reactions to Part 1 and Part 1.5, but I’m fed up with the endless accusations from both sides of the “conservative” divide.  A Hillary Clinton win is not inevitable, unless we choose to keep fighting.  If you choose to believe the only way to beat her is through Donald Trump or Ted Cruz, despite the truth in both cases, it’s over and we’ve lost.  All of us have lost.

I dearly love this girl. She’s a bright college senior and she’s been sucking up knowledge like a sponge for the last three and a half years. I could say that’s a good thing except that our institutions of higher learning are no longer guiding and leading students to seek truth, but most often are indoctrinating and propagandizing the collective
