R3publicans:  Down With False Democracy, Up With True Self-Government

The Right and Left claim to be “democratic” while forgetting the liberal and republican principles that have made America great.

By Alexander William SalterJune 26, 2018

When, exactly, were we “great”?

R3publicans:  We Need Great Historians Like David Irving – Our Knowledge of WW2 Is Completely Wrong

“The history of WW II is incorrect … it glorifies the victors and demonizes the vanquished … Irving’s histories are far more accurate than those written by court historians … (who) teamed up with Zionists to smear and demonize the best historian of our time.”

Paul Craig Roberts
