Time. It dictates so many things in life, very much including political life. As I thought about this article various songs about time ran through my head. I could not help but think back to a plethora of high school level practices where the clock prominently figured. I’ll commence the body of this piece with a paragraph on that. You were warned.

2022 In Review
It’s the last publishing day of the year at tellthetruthonthem.com and it’s time for the “report card”. About a year ago I predicted what I thought the top five political stories of the year would be and I was reasonably accurate. That’s the good news.

I especially recommend this work to younger women and political science junkies regardless of party affiliation of political philosophy.
