The election results show:
Obama = 62,088,847
Romney = 58,783,137
In terms of individual votes cast, the swing was 1,652,855 out of a total of 120,871,984 votes, or 1.37%. On average, that amounts to around 33,000 voters per state… a shockingly low number defining the distinction between the two alternative paths. Each vote DOES make a […]

Every election cycle, it seems, we go through the same hand-wringing worries:
Will the opposition win but only through voter fraud?
Is the electoral college a fair way to determine the results?
Are the public polls accurate or biased?
Should I vote or not?
Here are some honest answers:

I am absolutely TIRED of a good action being contorted into a wrongful act or presented with an unhelpful bias.
It is OBVIOUS to all that it is the political season and virtually any activity might come with a political spin. We’re all adults (right?), and we know the game that is being played (including […]

Lobbying is a part of political life. The influence and money of special interest groups exerts considerable pressure on politicians to vote in harmony with their biggest campaign contributors… so, who’s buying the votes?

These days, you cannot pick up a product without being able to turn it around and learn how many calories it has, what daily percentage of all the vitamins and minerals in it, what the product is made of (including active and inactive ingredients), whether it meets various health, safety, and environmental standards, and so […]

I’ve previously discussed how our country is actually based on the idea that, in the eyes of Gods, all of us are created equal and the political fact that this concept has been construed to mean we should enjoy things equally.

Illinois Congressman Phil Hare says it out loud:
THIS is exactly what’s wrong with all-too-many of our elected representatives. It’s one thing to vote your conscience, to be accountable to your constituency, even to make expedient political deals… but if there’s one thing ALL elected officials must do (indeed, are sworn to do), it is […]

It’s clear we need a STRONG political party to steer our country back to what made it great in the first place. Our current direction is economically unsustainable… reality is being ignored… and inconsistent with the Constitution… which says WE, THE PEOPLE have the power and GOVERNMENT WORKS FOR US (not the other way […]

Suppose a respected college business professor gave his MBA class an assignment:
Examine the nation’s health care system and prepare a detailed plan to correct the problems… enhance transportability so pre-existing conditions won’t be excluded, reduce costs, expand services for those least able to afford it, minimize the likelihood that an extreme medical situation would lead […]

It is immoral for the government to “take from the rich” and “give to the poor”.
While any individual might donate some of their money, possessions, time, or talent to the betterment of others who have less, charity is a unilateral thing… it is at the complete option of the giver. It is, […]
