Where Are We? By Thomas Sowell
Excerpt: The opportunities are many, which is to say that many things are in desperate need of changing, beginning with rebuilding our dangerously neglected and undermined military forces. The monstrosity of ObamaCare needs to be gotten rid of, not just cosmetically adjusted. Our fundamental freedoms under the Constitution are at stake in the choice of the next nominee to become a Justice of the closely divided Supreme Court. We need someone with both the depth and the strength to resist the pressures and the temptations that have seduced too many supposedly "conservative" justices, over the years, into betraying Constitutional principles. The current hysteria over "fake news" -- including hysteria by people who have done more than their own fair share of faking news -- shows the continuing efforts of the political left to stifle free speech in the country at large, as they already have on academic campuses.
