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’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 »

Donald Trump is helping White Supremacists

Donald Trump is helping White Supremacists
Since leaving the GOP and writing about it two weeks ago, the White Supremacists have found this blog and have been writing on my posts and sending me emails. You don’t see them because I will not allow anything I write to be a vehicle for racism and antisemitism. Readers need to be warned, there... 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 »

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....

I love Mexicans

I love Mexicans
Our xenophobic President, Donald Trump in Poland with his neofascist pals that run Poland these days made me think of Mexicans in America. Poland is one of the most homogenous nations on Earth.  Like Hungary and a few other nations in Eastern and Central Europe, they are in love with neofascism.  The skinhead movement is... Read more »

Trump’s failing Presidency

Trump’s failing Presidency
Can Donald Trump salvage his Presidency?  He is in deep trouble, and it isn’t due to the Democrats or from Trump opposition groups.  His wounds are self-inflicted. Conservative Columnist George Will, who left the GOP because of Trump, wrote last week that it appeared to him that Trump is dangerously disabled.  Articles abound about his... Read more »

What’s the state of race in America?

What’s the state of race in America?
Maybe things are not as bad as they seem?  Although bigotry has made a strong comeback under the guise of “an end to political correctness,” we have not slid back to the 1950s, 60s, or another era. There is evidence of that in a Mayoral race just south of Chicago, in Kankakee, Illinois. Kankakee is... Read more »

Why the surge in racism and anti-Semitism?

Why the surge in racism and anti-Semitism?
In Los Gatos, California yesterday, a Jewish Community Center was evacuated because of a bomb threat.  It was just one more incident in a wave of anti-Semitic incidents over the past few months. Last year, African-Americans took to the streets to protest minorities who died in police custody for no apparent reason or under suspicious... Read more »

I'm tired of hate

I'm tired of hate
I am sorry to admit it but that is a change for me.  It is a fundamental change in my world view.  At one time, I was good at the hate game.  My view of politics and how we should behave in elections has been shifting since 1988.  That year was the first truly mean... Read more »
