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 »

We need to plan the funeral for the GOP

We need to plan the funeral for the GOP
The GOP I knew, and for whom I worked for over four decades is as dead as its founders. The Republican Party had a long life, 162 years. From 1854 until 2016, the year of its passing, the GOP saw many triumphs. Abraham Lincoln, the Party’s very first President, preserved the union, signed the Emancipation... Read more »

God Bless the Divided States of America

God Bless the Divided States of America
I have not written a column for a week. I had a big deadline for another project. I needed some time off, and so I took a week off. I use social media to promote my articles to the political crowd. That is my market. I limited my time on Twitter and Facebook, and I... Read more »

I don’t trust Donald Trump and the GOP to Protect Us

I don’t trust Donald Trump and the GOP to Protect Us
I was part of the Reagan Revolution. I cheered when President Reagan invaded Granada and ended a coup against that Island Nation. When he launched an attack on Libya in retaliation for a West Berlin discotheque bombing, I felt the USA had sent a message to dictators that there would be consequences for sponsoring terrorism....

Can we medicate Donald Trump?

Can we medicate Donald Trump?
I’m not being flippant.  Our national security is at risk with this guy’s behavior. The guy is really off the rails today.  Maybe it’s the Senate’s investigation into Russia and the election that starts today that pushed him into The Twilight Zone? He needs to get the Hell off twitter.  His obsession with the New... Read more »
