We need to practice more kindness and less politics

We need to practice more kindness and less politics
I do not care about a person’s politics or their religion. I do not care about their race, or sex, or sexual preference, or national origin. It is unimportant to me if they are a Democrat, Republican, Independent, Socialist, Communist, Libertarian, or Anarchist. All I care about is whether a person has a good heart.... Read more »

It is May Day, I miss the USSR and so should you

It is May Day, I miss the USSR and so should you
On the last day in April in 1993, I sat in a bar just off Red Square with a new Russian Friend. Victor was a KGB officer in the 1970s and 1980s assigned to Washington, DC to organize spies to steal information from guys like me. He was a spymaster, and a good one. “Robert,... Read more »

The new Republican Party values are why I left the party

The new Republican Party values are why I left the party
Long before the vulgarity of Donald Trump, many expressed worry about the decay of conservatism. It has decayed to the point that it no longer exists in practical terms. Champions of traditional conservative values, like Barry Goldwater, Ronald Reagan, and Phil Graham, would not recognize what passes itself off as conservative today. It is doubtful... Read more »

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....

What does the Obamacare debate show us?

What does the Obamacare debate show us?
The two major political parties used to have principles.  They no longer can lay claim to principles.  They can lay claim to division, hate, and extremist views.  The ongoing debate about the Affordable Care Act is making them look like dinosaurs.  They have no relevance when it comes to life in America. The two parties... Read more »

Why are we all enemies?

Why are we all enemies?
I will say this: Democrats are classier losers than the GOP. In 2008, and 2012 we had the arrested development types calling for states to leave the union. They channeled their inner Jefferson Davis and ran all over social media making fools of themselves. In case you hadn’t noticed, Texas and Georgia are still part... Read more »
