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 »

Donald Trump is the symptom of trouble in the GOP and not the cause

Donald Trump is the symptom of trouble in the GOP and not the cause
I was a “Never Trump” Republican at the start of the GOP Primary season in 2015. I couldn’t envision a vulgar conspiracy theorist, bigot, and trade protectionist as my President.

Why a “Third Party” is not a good idea, Part II
Yesterday was installment number one in a two-article series on the viability of a third party. You can read Part I here. Many Democrats and Republicans express discontent with their parties.

Democrats were down this week about losing a special election in Georgia which featured “Not Trump,” as its overall theme. Come on, it’s Georgia. We have to be drinking our own bathwater if think merely running against one individual, even it is Donald Trump is enough to win. Democrats should not despair. There are 24... Read more »
