Then results of the caucuses themselves were hung out to dry because of "inconsistencies."

No one ever said that making political sausage is pretty.

But it is for this very reason that we should want to minimize the extent to which political sausage-making impacts our lives. But if those who are running for the presidency in the Democratic Party get their way, we can only expect more and more of it.

We too often make the mistake of thinking that democracy and freedom are the same thing. This is a big mistake.

Democrats will talk to us forever about the former but could care less about the latter.

The rhetoric from all these Democrats boils down to how they claim they're going to make our lives better by increasing government/political power over every decision we make.
