Trump Takes On The Deep State

"The deep state" is shorthand for a force within Washington that is able to guide the US' ship of state over periods of time longer than presidential terms, and at times despite the stated intentions of elected officials.

Orphaned Liberals

It is fascinating that some 2nd generation liberals when asked why they are Democrats can't talk about ideas, but rather cite the people whose ideas they adhere to. In one instance, I volunteered to defend a liberal Dem friend on an issue. First, I asked him why he was a Democrat before setting out to back him up. His answer to why he was a Democrat was "Because my mother is." His mother was a multi-millionaire now and a long way from being progressive. My progressive liberal friend was a political orphan drinking kool-aid. Meanwhile his mom had long since swapped for Caymus Cabernet.
