The GOP may be fighting intense policy battles such as border security after losing control of the House in the midterms. However, it needs to be more vigilant about battling the long-term cultural war, the growing acceptance in America to the allure of socialism over capitalism and free markets. This has emboldened many Democrats to identify as socialists, because they know that they are successfully re-branding and re-ma...

After being a conservative writer and also in car sales for years, one key observation resonates louder every day.

The GOP's latest and probably best last chance of repealing Obamacare rests on the outcome of a vote on the Graham-Cassidy  health-care bill. Again its passage hinges on a few Senators such as Sen. Lisa Murkowski, Sen. Rand Paul and Sen. Susan Collins. Sen. John McCain who was the deciding vote which killed the last GOP attempt has declared he will again vote 'no' on this bill.
