This Was The Biggest

Two hundred forty-six years ago today America declared its independence and a few years later with the adoption of the Constitution became a republic (think: representative democracy). That basically means that the majority rules. Today the America I know is in jeopardy because of an out of control Supreme Court that is openly defying the will of the vast majority of the people and is working to take them out of the equation.

Which Next?

My biggest non-partisan criticism of the American political system is the influence of money on it. Political fundraising has become an industry. There is nary a day goes by without me getting a flood of emails all asking for money for some political/policy cause. I am far from alone! Abortion has been one of the hottest topics for decades. I am among the many who feel that the Supreme Court will effectively gut Roe v Wade in the coming weeks. The fundraisers will not stop; there is simply too much money to be made. The question is which will be the next cause. Continue reading Which Next?
