The Intimidation Game

The Intimidation Game, How the Left Is Silencing Free Speech by Kimberley Strassel published in 2016. Most Americans get their news from TV and that is a shame. Too often on the tube, people of different viewpoints talk rapidly and at the same time so that viewers are hard pressed to understand what is being said. That is why I prefer to get my political opinions from books that I can read at my speed and dissect the arguments at my leisure.

Kimberley Strassel is a noted reporter for the Wall Street Journal, yet her argument for unrestricted money in politics is full of holes. Elections are often decided by who spends the most. That being the case, voters must know where the money is coming from. With dark money, we don’t know. I don’t have a problem with conservatives arguing their point of view. I do have a problem with lies and distortions to gain a victory at all costs.
