Is America quitting the world stage?

Is America quitting the world stage?
“Winners never quit, and quitters never win,” spoken by the great Green Bay Packers coach, Vince Lombardi, was stenciled on the wall of our High School locker room. At the time I thought it was just something the coaches had painted on the walls to make us feel guilty about our abysmal win/loss records. We... Read more »

What the Democrats have that was attractive to this ex-GOP

What the Democrats have that was attractive to this ex-GOP
I recently wrote a series of articles about my leaving the GOP and joining the Democratic Party.  One of the articles became a viral post on social media.  “44 Years a Republican, 1 Year an Independent, today I’m joining the Democratic Party” became a sort of anthem for many who have become disgusted with the...

In touch with my inner Reagan

In touch with my inner Reagan
Moving away from one’s political party after 42 years of voting straight Republican is not an easy thing to do. Being right is not always easy. Ronald Reagan taught me that lesson, and it is a good lesson for today. Ronald Reagan inspired me, and millions of young Americans early on our life journeys. I... Read more »

The GOP Platform pits one American against another

The GOP Platform pits one American against another
Once upon a time, the political party conventions would get together and forge a platform which was their vision for America. This was before the days of focus groups, overnight polling, and near-instant communication, the platforms were the foundation, the sales documents for the party for every office from President down to the School Board....
