Thank You Donald Trump From The Bottom of My Soul

I just want to take a moment and express my sincere gratitude for the accomplishments you, Donald Trump, and the Republican Party are achieving. You are inspiring generations of women, minorities, millennials, immigrants, teachers, moderates, independents and several other critical demographics to leave the Republican Party for good. You are Continue …

Republicans Never Had The Moral High Ground

Everyone in America has heard Donald Trump’s misogynist and offensive remarks or read about his numerous affairs and infidelity. As Michelle Obama once said with power, “I can’t believe I’m saying a candidate for president of the United States has bragged about sexually assaulting women, I’ve listened to this, and Continue …

Fiscal Conservatives Should Love Obama

Recently in a conversation with a conservative friend, I expressed deep concern for the managing of the federal budget. Donald Trump’s lack of awareness is again driving our budget to trillion dollar deficits and fiscal conservatives are hiding under their desks. To which my friend predictably replied, “Whatabout President Obama? Continue …

Republicans Need to Stand Up To Donald Trump

In 1950, Senator Joseph McCarthy from Wisconsin rose from relative obscurity when he shocked the country with the claim that many State Department workers were colluding and aiding the Communist Party. McCarthy’s communist accusations continued to gain momentum until the nationally televised Army–McCarthy hearings in early 1954. During that hearing, Continue …

Republicans Are Out Of Healthcare Options

In 1986, as a part of the Budget Reconciliation Act, President Ronald Reagan signed into law the Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act. This legislation guaranteed any hospital emergency room that accepted Medicare are required to provide treatment to all others regardless of legal status, citizenship, or payment ability. Continue …

Speaker Ryan Adds Planned Parenthood To Obamacare Repeal

An all-out attack on Planned Parenthood has just been announced by the GOP. Today Speaker Ryan announced that defunding of Planned Parenthood would be part of the Obamacare reconciliation bill. Using the reconciliation process skates around a potential Democratic filibuster and allows a straight up vote. Not only are Republicans Continue …

A Party Full of Sheeple

Recently I had a conversation with a conservative friend and Donald Trump supporter. I asked a simple question that generated strong emotion and defense. “How would you feel if President Trump agreed to provide financial support for any country that implemented socialized medicine and government-funded abortions?” Assuming this was just Continue …

If You Voted For Romney And Care About Hillary’s Emails, You Are A Hypocrite

If you voted for Governor Romney for president and believe Hillary’s emails disqualify her, you are a hypocrite. End of story. Read no further. And if you think Hillary should be locked up for her email abuse then you should also demand that President George W. Bush get life in Continue …

Conservatism is Dying, Thankfully

Conservatism in America is dying, thankfully. I am not referring to the iconic conservative beliefs of Ronald Reagan and Bob Dole, who found success in compromise and concession. Compassionate conservatism will always be ingrained in our political system. I am talking about the mangled attempt to push the electorate to Continue …

Donald Trump or Ted Cruz? Yes Please.

Watching the Republican debate the other night provided quite a spectacle for viewers. Donald Trump calling into question Ted Cruz’s birthright might be the greatest moment of debate theater this election cycle. Even more amusing was Ted Cruz’s response, twisting Constitutional interpretation to include parents of “natural born” citizens, calling Continue …
