Will an election fix America?

Will an election fix America?
America, we need to wake up. We’re taking our political passions too far. For the first time in my life, I am afraid of my Nation. Nine days ago, eleven people were murdered at a Pittsburgh synagogue while praying, and I see no resolve from the Government, or either political party to fight the hate... Read more »

Six things you can do to make America Great Again that does not include Donald Trump

Six things you can do to make America Great Again that does not include Donald Trump
“Bob, are you alive?” a reader emailed me yesterday. I’ve been absent for the past fourteen tumultuous days. That is on purpose. We all need a break from the constant stream of crazy fed to us by the mosh pit of Washington on a daily basis. If we do not take breaks, then we become... Read more »

The lies the GOP told me about Democrats

The lies the GOP told me about Democrats
I have been a Democrat for nearly one year. A GOP friend of mine asked me about the differences between the parties. He is thinking of leaving the GOP as well. Many have followed me out and read my column loyally knowing I will let them know if the Democrats are as bad as the... Read more »

I quit the GOP after 42 years as a loyal member and became a Democrat. I wish I had done it sooner rather than later.

I quit the GOP after 42 years as a loyal member and became a Democrat. I wish I had done it sooner rather than later.
We cannot turn back the hands of time and redo our mistakes of the past. If we could, I would go back to 1992 and join the Democratic Party. That was when the Republican Party turned a dark corner. Leaving one’s political party is as gut churning as changing one’s religion. My family was involved... Read more »

Is America beginning to shift away from always being angry?

Is America beginning to shift away from always being angry?
In late 2009, my phone rang, and it was my pal Rick in Washington, DC, a longtime GOP political operative. “Bob, about this Tea Party business, can you do me a favor, and join Facebook, join their groups, and try to teach these folks about policy?” The Tea Party Movement was pretty new. Organized by... Read more »

Men need to shut up about abortion

Men need to shut up about abortion
OK, I said it. My email will become a repository for salacious comments in the name of religious zeal. If there is a viler national “discussion” than abortion, I do not know what it is. Zealots spewing hate and recriminations at one another is emblematic of our national division. In fact, it has become a... Read more »

Politics and ideology are not the solutions, they are the problems

Politics and ideology are not the solutions, they are the problems
Former Labor Secretary and good pal of Bernie Sanders, Robert Reich has a new video posted on YouTube on his “Inequality Media.” Boy, there’s a name for you. Mr. Reich’s elderly presence and rich baritone voice bring recollections of Kentucky Fried Chicken’s original Colonel Sanders for some reason. Get your politics (and your Chicken) from...

It is painful watching the GOP lose all sense of decency

It is painful watching the GOP lose all sense of decency
It is painful to watch a once principled political party disintegrate before my eyes. I spent four decades in the Republican Party upholding principles that no longer exist in the GOP of Donald Trump. The man in the above photo is a white supremacist, anti-Semite, and Holocaust denier. His name is Arthur Jones, and he... Read more »

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 »
