Why This Presidential Election isn’t as Important as People Think • It’s easy to get wrapped up in men and moments.

SellwynThumbby Selwyn Duke1/5/16
Perhaps it’s not surprising that Time magazine named Angela Merkel its “Person of the Year.” With her flooding of Europe with Muslim migrants, the German chancellor may, after all, go down in history as a primary destroyer of Western civilization. More » • (771 views)
