A recent Daily Caller column criticized me for advocating disease prevention and cures instead of trillion-dollar Medicare treatments after a disease is at the catastrophic level. Likewise, at last week’s Republican debate, I was attacked for stating the obvious. Stabbing seniors in the back and then calling it a back massage is no way to earn people’s trust.

Even though Osama Bin Laden murdered thousands of Americans, the Obama administration respected his dead body under Muslim tradition. Out of diplomatic respect, President Obama has bowed to a Saudi King and a Japanese Emperor. He’s even worn turbans, ethnic robes, and Japanese kimonos.
On the heels of their summer convention, Democratic leaders passed a resolution to support the Black Lives Matters movement and condemn American police officers. The very next day, movement protesters marched in Minnesota, chanting death threats against police, shouting “pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon.” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would be appalled by such violent and intemperate language, and Americans should be appalled by the Democrat Party’s support for the Black Lives Matter mob.

I support free, fair trade, but I’m sick of America’s workers getting punched in the gut.
