Me Is Part Of We

The grammar of this article’s title is terrible but that was the way I envision and wanted to communicate the underlying message which I feel expresses the core value of being an American. The individual is just part of the collection and we have a moral obligation to think of the group above what benefits or impacts us personally. With that in mind, let’s explore.

The Endorsement Of Kyrsten Sinema

Tuesday night Arizona released its primary results and they should produce one of the most interesting and pivotal Senate races of 2018. Republican Jeff Flake’s retirement created an open seat in a state that while still red is certainly trending blue. Both parties selected their most electable candidate and both are women in what is looking like a year of the woman. Both are currently serving in the House. This should be a horse race where the Republicans are defending a seat that is one of three best pick-up opportunities for the Democrats who need to flip a net of two in order to take control of the upper chamber of Congress. In researching Democrat Kyrsten Sinema I found, as expected, a somewhat left-leaning moderate. To my surprise I discovered a much more interesting than anticipated candidate from the personal profile standpoint. In fact she may be the prototype Democratic candidate if they want to win in places they haven’t had historical success and appeal to the increasing pool of voters who reject party labels.

The Endorsement Of Bob Casey

Time and space constraints prevent me from making endorsements in every race I find a worthy candidate in. This is a race I hadn’t intended to touch earlier this year. I felt the Democrat would win; not in a landslide but still win. Then Pennsylvania held their primaries and a dangerous Trump endorsed white supremacist extremist won the GOP nod. I could no longer remain silent and expect others to get the job done. Today tellthetruthonthem.com endorses a more progressive than you might think Senator Ben Casey, Jr. for reelection in the Keystone State.     Continue reading The Endorsement Of Bob Casey

Bad Omens!

The moment Anthony Kennedy retired I knew I would not be happy with his replacement. Donald Trump is currently playing the part of a right winger on TV and I knew he would nominate someone way right of the American mainstream. With all the prime time coverage he coveted on Monday night he recognized a very few guest to get some easy applause. Second among them was Edwin Meese. That’s when I knew America was really in trouble! Let’s explore. Continue reading Bad Omens!
