Election Comedy – Who is writing the screenplay?

by Diane Benjamin   The November 6th election brought America to historic lows.  We are now a country divided by lies, deceit, corruption, and class envy.  The President did a masterful job convincing 50% of the voters business is evil and the rich are only out for themselves.  Electing him gets revenge.   The “blame […]

Dear We’re 13 days away.

Adam Kinzinger and Jesse Jackson Jr.

Report from an Illinois delegate at the RNC

Hello friends,   I find this situation to be very troubling to me.  As you may know, Ron Paul had won sufficient delegates in at least five states to earn him a speaking slot at the convention. Through the legerdemain (perhaps more appropriately, strong arm tactics) of the RNC, many of those delegates were stripped, leaving Paul […]
