Why the Country is So Divided: Different Narratives

There are two very different narratives going on in this country, plus hundreds more. The two most dominant right now post-election are liberal vs. conservative. The liberal's narrative accuses everything the conservatives say as being false, while the conservative's narrative accuses the liberals viewpoint as being false. As an independent, I see both the truth…

State of the Union

One side hypes social issues while the other side hypes the economy. About 1/4th of the country decides on Hillary, and 1/4th decides on Trump, even though 70% of the population didn't like either of them; 7 million people voted third party or independent, and about 1/2 of the population didn't even bother to vote.…

Democracy is Messy and Your Opponents Aren’t Traitiors

For those who are so sure that your particular brand of politics is the only correct way. This country is ruled by the Constitution, which is designed and intended to enforce the will of the people.

A New Approach to Ending Racism and Bigotry is Needed

Racism and bigotry stem from ignorance and arrogance, sometimes combined with economic interests (i.e. competing social groups often don't like each other). As this election has shown, political correctness is not the answer. All it achieved was sweeping much of the racism and bigotry under the rug. This election moved the rug. The racism and…

Did America Just Suddenly Become More Racist and Hateful?

In the aftermath of Trump's election to the office of President, we have seen a rise in the number of acts of hate, some racist, some discriminatory against the LGBT community or Muslims, others against supporters of various candidates. Suddenly it seems as if we have more racists and haters everywhere, or at least their sympathizers.…

The Hate Needs to Stop from Both Sides

I want to publicly state that regardless of your political affiliation or preferred candidate, treating other people horribly is not right, and it's not good for this country, and it's counterproductive. Whether it's the hateful ones who discriminate against people based on the color of their skin, their culture, national origin, religion or sexual identity,…
