Political Spectrum: It's more than "Left & Right."

When I have discussions about where the Modern Whig Party is on the political spectrum, questions such as, "Are you guys liberal or conservative?" are very common. Other questions may dig beyond the surface, and include a social or fiscal adjective, e.g "socially liberal, fiscally conservative." The truth is, in my opinion, summary classifications such as polarization of political position are completely apocryphal.

Are The VA’s Priorities Correctly Set?

I recently spoke with a Veteran’s Service Officer who works for a Nationally Recognized Veterans Organization.  This individual told me that lately, he has been seeing several letters each week to Veterans who already have rated disabilities which more or less conform to the following example:

Impeachment and lawsuits: Party tools of emotional extortion-T.J. O'Hara

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.
