I quit the GOP after 42 years as a loyal member and became a Democrat. I wish I had done it sooner rather than later.

I quit the GOP after 42 years as a loyal member and became a Democrat. I wish I had done it sooner rather than later.
We cannot turn back the hands of time and redo our mistakes of the past. If we could, I would go back to 1992 and join the Democratic Party. That was when the Republican Party turned a dark corner. Leaving one’s political party is as gut churning as changing one’s religion. My family was involved... Read more »

Do we forget that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a radical?

Do we forget that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was a radical?
Fifty years ago today, an assassin struck down one of America’s greatest leaders. It seems like it was just yesterday, and already a half-century has passed. I was seventeen years old, and a few months away from graduating from High School the day James Earl Ray struck down Dr. King. I was home from school... 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. The reality is he is President of the USA, but he will never be “My President.” Except for Donald Trump, every President of my life... Read more »

With each Tweet, Donald Trump proves Colin Kaepernick right

With each Tweet, Donald Trump proves Colin Kaepernick right
What makes the Colin Kaepernick timely is how Donald Trump proves Mr. Kaepernick’s point with each tweet. Did the GOP realize when they nominated Donald Trump for the office of President of the United States, they nominated a man who hates America? Despite all the wrapping himself in the flag, despite his misuse of the... Read more »

Donald Trump reaffirmed the GOP racist credential

Donald Trump reaffirmed the GOP racist credential
This is a major reason I left the GOP after 44 years as a loyal supporter. Let’s be very clear about something. It is not enough to condemn White Nationalists, Neo-Nazis, and the KKK. Members of the GOP must also condemn Donald Trump for his apologist comments toward the racists in Charlottesville, VA on Saturday.... Read more »

Donald Trump is helping White Supremacists

Donald Trump is helping White Supremacists
Since leaving the GOP and writing about it two weeks ago, the White Supremacists have found this blog and have been writing on my posts and sending me emails. You don’t see them because I will not allow anything I write to be a vehicle for racism and antisemitism. Readers need to be warned, there... Read more »

A shutdown is an early Xmas Present to Democrats

A shutdown is an early Xmas Present to Democrats
“Mr. President, abandon this wall.” Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan should be shouting the words President Reagan used in Berlin to challenge Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down The Wall.  The words need to be a spoken as a challenge to the Bigot-In-Chief in the Oval Office to abandon his folly about a wall...

Donald Trump and the Muslims and the White Supremacists

Donald Trump and the Muslims and the White Supremacists
It was one of the stunning headlines of the 2016 USA Presidential Election.  Donald Trump was going to ignore the First Amendment of the US Constitution and its religious freedom protections.  He was going to block all Muslims from entering the USA, have a Muslim Registry where all members of the Muslim Faith were going...
