I am well aware Donald Trump isn’t a conservative. What’s more, I’ve seen no indication that he’s interested in adopting a consistent constitutionally conservative philosophy.

With the Iowa caucus, electoral politics have made a rather splashy re-entrance to the public dialogue, and a familiar bogeyman has snuck in with it.

Jimmy Carter

Former President Jimmy Carter told the United Kingdom parliament that he would rather see Trump than Cruz as the GOP nominee. “The reason is, Trump has proven already that he is completely malleable. I don’t think he has any fixed opinion that he would fight for.” “If I had a choice of Republican nominees, between Cruz and Trump, I think I would ...
