• We Get Exactly the Kind of Government We Deserve – So Wake Up!

    I put the promises of career politicians in the same category as the unctuous words and promises of hormone-driven teenage boys to young girls – not “lies,” exactly, for they really mean it when they say it. But will they mean it afterwards? In both cases, you’d get a hearty laugh as an answer. Apparently, that’s a lesson that many American voters have yet to learn.

  • SOS: Speaking of Seniors – Seniors and Starfish

    Several years before Obamacare became law, I estimated that senior citizens on Medicare were being overcharged on medical bills by over one billion dollars per year. Things have gotten worse since. I told my friend that I sometimes feel like I am not making a difference and it really bothers me at times.

  • Donald Trump: The Poor Substitute

    We may not be humbling ourselves, but we are most certainly humiliating ourselves. Greatness is a matter of character, not cash, and when we canonize the egos of the successful, we are never so poor as a nation.

  • Do They Really Report and We Decide?

    Americans will get the president they deserve. Like children, most Americans expect someone else to take care of them. They expect entities such as government, political parties, insurance companies or financial institutions to provide them prosperity, security, physical safety, comfort and convenience in an environment conducive to unfettered playtime.

  • Putting the Bite Back In Article 1

    Restoring Congress’ Article I power of the purse is exactly what the doctor ordered to fix what ails Washington, D.C. Which is an out-of-control executive branch and its many agencies that have grown far beyond what the Framers of the Constitution intended or ever envisioned in 1787.

  • Recognizing Reagan’s Birthday

    Tomorrow, February 6, 2016, would have been Ronald Reagan’s 105th birthday.

A good candidate must not only show us that he knows what is required of him, but he must also demonstrate that he will act on that which he knows. It won’t do us any good electing someone who knows what to do but won’t do it, whether out of fear of men or desire to be re-elected, or whatever.
