Dear Republican Members of Congress:
I write this letter out of extreme concern about not only the direction of our country, but of the direction of the party leading it. I feel it’s my duty to inform you that the Republicans are currently the majority party in Congress. I’ll be blunt: Why won’t you at least TRY to implement the agenda that WE voted you in for, the mandate that WE gave you? It’s sickening to watch this majority we all worked so achieve to death being completely flushed down the toilet. Continue reading “Open Letter to the GOP Congress”
Blueprint for Taking America Back
Preamble – Grassroots:
Most of us will agree that our nation has problems. We seem unable to get any meaningful health care reform, tax cuts, or get Congress to build a border wall. While legislative change is needed, and we need to seriously think who we’re voting into office, I think that focusing on this bill or that election is only treating the symptoms. Continue reading “Blueprint For Change”
I address this letter to the Republicans in the House of Representatives at large. I am completely flummoxed. You promised us full repeal of Obamacare. What you barely passed a few months ago wasn’t even close. You’ve been promising this for six years. Continue reading “Letter to my Congressperson”
Think you want single payer health care? Ask the parents of Charlie Gard what they think.

Donald Trump recently stated that no politician has been attacked as much as he had. Maybe there’s some hyperbole to this, but there’s no question that the media, which has always leaned left, has found a new level of rage since Donald Trump was elected President.

There has been a lot of talk among Conservative and Libertarian circles about this and that that legislation we need, what Trump should do, and what Congress should do. The healthcare plan or tax reform or the border wall. While these are important, they’re just treating the symptoms. If we really want to bring Conservative and Libertarian values back to our nation, and defeat the “progressive” left that aims to fundamentally transform America, we are going to go back to our own roots and remember how we became the shining city on the hill in the first place.

We used to be able to agree to disagree and still move on with our lives. I did not support Donald Trump in the primaries, and that’s been documented a few times on this blog. Yet he is our President now, and it seems there’s no more any middle ground with the far left in this country. On November 9 I published an entry called “What Just Happened?” but I think it needs to be updated now that the extreme anti-Trump vitrol and increasing riots and facism being displayed by the far left has made itself more visible…

This post will be a little different than usual. I don’t have a specific topic, and those who have been great enough to read this blog may realize that this has been generally less of a blog and more of a series of essays. This is one reason that I don’t post more often because if I did, this would devolve into a mere series of random thoughts.

Unfortunately, the Democrats in Congress (and some Republicans) are pitching a fit over Betsy DeVos’s nomination for Secretary of Education. The crux of their arguments seem to be that vouchers will somehow “drain resources” from public schools (though Charter Schools are public schools) and thus “ruin public education.” They also feel that government money should not be used for private, especially religious, education. These arguments are, how should I put it… rubbish.

Jeff Sessions. Rex Tillerson. “Mad Dog” Mattis. There are a lot of high-profile Senate confirmation hearings going on these next few weeks, and inevitably many Democrats will make up lies and propaganda in a vain attempt to block the confirmation of what I believe (for the most part) to be a world-class Cabinet. I’d like to focus here on one of the nominees that many outside the education field are overlooking – Education Secretary nominee Betsy DeVos. Continue reading “Betsy DeVos for Secretary of Education”
