RANCHO SANTA FE, Ca., August 4, 2014 – In a Nation that favors sound bites over solutions, it should not come as a surprise that the term “political integrity” has become little more than an oxymoron. Ethics be damned: If the Parties can use something to “stimulate the base,” you may rest assured they will pursue it. It is irrelevant whether it makes sense or is morally reprehensible as long as it can be used to extract money and votes. The recent discussion of impeachment and lawsuits are cases in point.
Now that Congress is throwing sixteen-plus billion dollars at the V.A. crisis in the hopes that it will go away, I think it is time to discuss options for how it is spent. More healthcare providers are a common response. What type and at what level is less often mentioned. One functional area which needs improvement is the appointments process. As a semi-outsider trying to get in, it seems like there are a limited number of available appointments.
RANCHO SANTA FE, Ca., July 14, 2014 – Our political “customs” are in evidence as we see the immigration issue unfold. Recently, over 39,000 families and 52,000 unaccompanied children have been detained for entering our southern border illegally. This latest surge adds to the 11-13 million individuals who are estimated to already reside in our country illegally. Yet, our elected officials are calling for emergency measures as if the problem represented a new phenomenon.
RANCHO SANTA FE, Ca., July 4, 2014 – While small town parades, backyard barbecues and fireworks displays may be what many people associate with the 4th of July, Independence Day deserves far greater respect. Fifty-six men signed a single piece of parchment on this day in 1776 that contained 1338 words that changed the history of the world for the better. That hallowed document claimed independence not only for a Nation but for a People. Unfortunately, 238 years later, we are in danger of surrendering to the temptation of dependence.
July 4, 1776, was a day that marked a culmination in one phase of struggle for American independence and personal freedom. Many Americans had sacrificed life, fortune, and time to bring forth the ideas that were officially born on July 4, 1776. These Americans were volunteer soldiers and sailors and their families. These Americans were our Founding Fathers and supporters who sacrificed fortunes, time, and thought in crafting ideas and a framework for independence and personal freedom.
I guess this is kind of like a political confession of sorts where we all describe out background, then receive our "hugs" in the replies?
I've actually been following the whigs online and on facebook since their facebook account was first brought online. I'm a long time advocate and proud member of the modern whig party! Just finally getting around to joining the forums :)
Okay... well I just wrote a somewhat lengthy post which for some reason does not appear to have been posted. So I will try again, with a shorter version.
I have always voted republican, but I have some major issues with the modern day republican party. Issues so important to me that I cannot vote republican anymore. Problem is, in my opinion, the republican party is still the lesser of two evils. So I want a third option. Will there be any Whigs on the ballot in Alaska this November?
In a nutshell, I don't like the government telling me what I can and cannot have. That goes for guns as well as marijuana. So you can easily see my dilemma there. (just an example)
