American Homage

On August 23, 2018, someone on Twitter reminded everyone William Wallace was executed that same day in 1305 in the most horrible fashion. He was castrated, disemboweled and innards burned in front of him. He was hanged and finally beheaded. This occurred because of his failure to submit to the King of England. He chose… Continue reading American Homage

State Break Away

The Helsinki Summit held on July 16, 2018, demonstrated to the world something very shocking. That a United States President would grant equal value of the word of a pathological lying, dictator, murdering thug of a former KGB Colonel, on equal grounds as the entire United States intelligence community. When asked if Russia meddled in… Continue reading State Break Away

Even after pointing out this strategy, I knew the mainstream media and opponents… Continue reading First there was Twitter and then came Spicer

Breaking the Cycle of Abuse

Donald Trump will abuse the office of the presidency. I am convinced of this. During his campaign, he routinely said he knew more about things others did not.

Term limits; or, How to win my vote and prevent the do-nothing climate that led to Trump

I am not a Trump enthusiast. I am not anti-Trump either. I am trying to look at this from a pragmatic perspective and determine how we got to this point in our current political process. Trump is the symptom of a larger ailment plaguing both parties, but, more specifically, the Republican party.
