  • Giving to charities should not put you at risk of harm

    We are a generous and giving people. We exercise our First Amendment rights to support causes and ideas we believe in by donating our hard-earned money.

  • North Carolina should lead on reforming the federal government

    On April 28, President Biden addressed Congress and the nation to sell a spending package, allegedly aimed at improving the nation’s infrastructure, with a $2.25 trillion price tag.

But when progressives do appeal to voters’ rationality, they wisely do so more primarily through story than through argument. Yet, unfortunately, the progressive story is…
