Dewey or Destiny: Can Ron DeSantis Defy the Historic Curse of Front Runners?

In a recent poll done of conservative activists at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver, Colorado, a bit of an upset occured.

Reflections from Quarantine

This season of life has varied for everyone in it. I know friends who have lost jobs, I know friends who have gotten sick, I know friends who have struggled with anxiety and depression, I know friends who have lost loved ones during this time. For many, this is a time of lament. Life feels…

I’m currently on a quest to read a total of 50 books by the end of 2020. Here’s a look at some of the books I’ve already read through, at least some of the ones I’d recommend. All the Shah’s Men – Stephen Kinzer If you ever wanted to know why exactly there is much…
