Academia is to blame for the radical nature of the Democrat Presidential candidates

The current crop of radical Marxists vying for the Democratic Presidential nomination are the end result of 50 years of the Marxist indoctrination that takes place on our college campuses.

Government solutions to mass shootings will not solve the problem

History has proved that government solutions never solve problems, and most often make the problems worse. This is most definitely true when it comes to mass shootings.
