Can the damage being done by Donald Trump to the Presidency and America be repaired?

Can the damage being done by Donald Trump to the Presidency and America be repaired?
Donald Trump is the most destructive President of the United States in history. He has exceeded the dire warnings his opponents sounded during the campaign. Portrayed by the Democrats as unstable, chauvinistic, incompetent, and racist President Trump has been all that and more. During the 2016 election, the consensus among long-time GOP friends and former... Read more »

Nice Speech Senator McCain but I Don’t Trust You or the GOP

Nice Speech Senator McCain but I Don’t Trust You or the GOP
I wished Senator John McCain(R-AZ) all the best as he battles brain cancer. You may read my words by clicking here. The Senator came to the Floor of the Senate today, just a week after the diagnosis of brain cancer. He has a particularly brutal form of the disease. The kind of thing you would... 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....

The Seven Commandments of The GOP Religion

The Seven Commandments of The GOP Religion
Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY) finally spoke about the Lavrov issue and his words confirmed what many people suspected.  He spoke about what is important to the GOP.  The GOP agenda is cynical and cruel, and Senator McConnell makes no bones about it.

The House Healthcare abomination

The House Healthcare abomination
The GOP always has had a selfish streak.  I grew up in a Republican family.  There is a huge difference between the GOP then and the GOP now.  Until the rise of Newt Gingrich and his gang, the GOP had a heart.  No longer does the GOP have any kind of compassion for anyone.  They... Read more »

Donald Trump is confused. It's single-payer, not single-pager

Donald Trump is confused.  It's single-payer, not single-pager
The Founding Fathers had a fear about this new notion of self-rule they were inventing.  Their fear was a moron could hoodwink the voters and get into office. Actually, I added that moron part.  The Founders were worried a British loyalist could take over as President and give our hard fought for independence back to... Read more »

What has the USA become?

What has the USA become?
Maybe it was always there and now because of social media, it is on display.  Maybe it wasn’t always there and because of social media, we’ve changed. The “it” I’m referring to us we seem to have become a spiteful, selfish, uncaring nation.  There is a national malevolence that seems to be growing. I see... Read more »

Our side won, Healthcare is still broken

Our side won, Healthcare is still broken
We won, what do we do now?  The Affordable Care Act is not perfect.  I hate to be the bearer of that bad news.  When the ACA was passed, the first to admit it wasn’t perfect were the Democrats.  Shortly after it passed and people actually read the legislation, they were quick to say things...

The GOP Healthcare failure shows a Party in trouble.

The GOP Healthcare failure shows a Party in trouble.
In the 1980s, we used to routinely beat the Democrats in National Elections because their party was fractured.  It was like shooting fish in a barrel.  30 years later, the same thing is happening to the GOP. Democrats are taking a victory lap over Speaker Ryan pulling the bill.  They are thinking the voice of... Read more »
