Democrats Use NZ Massacre To Call For Stricter Gun Control In America

Democrats Use NZ Massacre To Call For Stricter Gun Control In America

The recent New Zealand attacks have reignited an already contentious debate on gun control.

Sweden Is Not A Socialist Country; A Lesson For America

Sweden Is Not A Socialist Country; A Lesson For America

The Divisive Factor

The Divisive Factor

The political polarization is dividing America; people no longer merely disagree with each other but actually hate those those who are on the other side of the political spectrum. Why has the political discourse become so poorly fragmented? When did it start? Did the 2016 election set off an emotional fury that’s just down spiralling?…

Immigration laws have not been effectively enforced for decades. This creates a moral conundrum. These people have established societal connections that often suggest a value to themselves and to the communities they inhabit.
