Kathleen Parker: America: Still great

Columnists

WASHINGTON -- You can feel the tension. Strolling down the street, shopping at the corner market, stopping for a bite at the local tavern, friends and neighbors greet each other as usual but avoid the elephant sauntering around like he owns the place. It's best not to talk politics this ...

George A. Bowers Sr.: What’s a Christian to do?

As we approach Election Day next Tuesday, many Christians are discouraged about our two options for president. Neither candidate reflects the beliefs that most of us could enthusiastically support. Faced with this dilemma, some are considering sitting out this trip to the polls and simply not ...

Letter to the Editor: It’s no surprise to me

Letters to the Editor

Editor:   So Donald Trump finally says that he will run the country like he runs his company. Buyer beware! Ever since he announced his desire to run for president I had to wonder, why? This is a person who has had several bankruptcies as a business man. He starts a company and when it ...

Columnists

  As I write this, the election is six days away. Real Clear Politics shows Hillary Clinton with an Electoral College advantage, leading 246 to 164. The former Secretary of State cannot rest easy, however. That's partly because she needs 270 Electoral College votes to win and partly ...

Columnists

  The parallels are striking. In the last decades of the 19th century -- the so-called "Gilded Age" -- America experienced inequality on a scale it had never before seen, combining wild opulence and searing poverty. American industry consolidated into a few giant monopolies, or ...

Rich Lowry: The Democrats asked for this

Columnists

Before Democrats burn James Comey in effigy, they should think about how the FBI director came to have an outsized influence in the election in the first place. It's not something Comey sought or welcomed. A law-enforcement official who prizes his reputation, he didn't relish becoming an ...

Froma Harrop: Comey fallout: The economy votes for Clinton

Columnists

Amid all the polling whiplash, one survey consistently backs Hillary Clinton, and with enthusiasm. Though not an official poll, it offers a relatively emotion-free referendum on the stakes in this presidential election. And its participants tend to be high-income and highly informed. We ...
