Is the political center collapsing, or is it just being ignored?

Is the political center collapsing, or is it just being ignored?
What has happened to the political center? The center’s traditional role has always been the thinkers who hold back those who are reactionary. The center puts the Nation first and ideology does not replace reason. The center is where proposals are studied, and analyzed outside the goggles of ideology. It’s the place that looks at...

Donald Trump has changed the once proud GOP into the Manson Family of politics

Donald Trump has changed the once proud GOP into the Manson Family of politics
Donald Trump doesn’t have a base. Like Charles Manson, he has a cult of personality that is oblivious to crimes, lies, and Trump’s childish behavior. It wasn’t just a quip when candidate Trump said he could walk out on 5th Avenue in New York and, “shoot somebody” and not lose a vote. He was serious,... Read more »

I dread the anniversary of 9/11

I dread the anniversary of 9/11
I dread it because people use the anniversary to rekindle hate. Today is the 16th anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center, The Pentagon, and a United Airlines plane crash in rural Pennsylvania. The greatest loss of life was in New York as two fuel laden planes slammed into the twin towers of the... Read more »

Donald Trump embarrassed himself and America in Arizona

Donald Trump embarrassed himself and America in Arizona
Just when one thinks Donald Trump couldn’t embarrass himself or the nation further, he reaches a new low. He is obsessed with Presidential firsts. None of his firsts that he lists are achievements. They are fantasies by a man who appears to be deranged. Here is a Presidential accomplishment of sorts. The reality is he... Read more »

I’m ashamed that I once was a Republican

I’m ashamed that I once was a Republican
The events of this weekend in Charlottesville and President Trump’s reaction has made me ashamed that I ever was a Republican. The party has become a source of shame for the decent people of the USA. The photo above is a screenshot from twitter. It shows the praise President Trump received for his “condemnation” of... Read more »

I'm proud to be part of the stampede out of the GOP

I'm proud to be part of the stampede out of the GOP
A little over a week ago I joined the Democratic Party. I had been an independent for a year and realized not being part of a party meant I was a voice in the wilderness. I’m not content to just be an observer on the sidelines. I want to be an agent for change. From... Read more »

I've been A Democrat for a week and I wonder what took me so long?

I've been A Democrat for a week and I wonder what took me so long?
One week ago, I joined the Democratic Party.  I wrote about in an article “44 years a Republican, 1 year an Independent today I’m Joining the Democratic Party.”  You can read the article by clicking here.  In the article I said: “…Will I be welcomed into the Democratic Party with open arms?  That is highly...

44 years a Republican, 1 year an Independent, today I'm joining the Democratic Party

44 years a Republican, 1 year an Independent, today I'm joining the Democratic Party
This was not an easy decision to make.  Politics is like one’s religion, you just don’t change it unless you have a moment of clarity and realize you are on the wrong path.  My family’s involvement in the GOP goes all the way back to the mid-1850s and the start of the GOP in Illinois....

Trump embarrasses himself and America once again

Trump embarrasses himself and America once again
Republicans, how can you show your faces in public after this latest outrage by Donald Trump? Do you think it’s Presidential to talk like this about people? Can you imagine Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, George W. Bush, Gerald Ford, or Dwight Eisenhower talking like this about people?  I didn’t include Nixon on the list... Read more »

The GOP is a racist organization

The GOP is a racist organization
There, I finally said it.  I hemmed and hawed about saying it for years.  I spun the reality of the GOP for 44 years.  I helped promote it and like the GOP today, I tried to deny my party’s love affair with racism by blaming the very victims of the Party’s racism for our behavior. ... Read more »
