Is Our Democratic Republic At Risk From Forces Both Foreign and Within?...

We are moving this running post up to front page this evening where it will remain until January 3'rd 2017 when we will return to single posts, hopefully on a daily basis. There is much to do in getting the TRUTH out about Donald J Trump, a dishonest, totally self absorbed, and dangerous individual. He may be the president on January 20th but that does not mean thoughtful and concerned people shouldn't challenge Trump at every turn and fight his agenda whenever it runs contrary to their interests and those of their family.

Since the election, people have asked me to change my vote based on policy disagreements with Donald J. Trump. In some cases, they cite the popular vote difference. I do not think presidents-elect should be disqualified for policy disagreements. I do not think they should be disqualified because they won the Electoral College instead of the popular vote. However, now I am asked to cast a vote on Dec. 19 for someone who shows daily he is not qualified for the office. Fifteen years ago, as a firefighter, I was part of the response to the Sept. 11 attacks against our nation.

The Fear Of The Trumpistas...

Rational Natation U S A Purveyor of Truth America, the great melting pot of the world as well as a beacon of hope and freedom for millions is changing.

Nationalism driven by ethic or racial identity is dangerous and it is ugly. History holds many examples. THE HILL - A rapidly aging white population and fast-growing younger minority groups are speeding demographic changes across the nation, hastening a political divide likely to have long-term ramifications.   The percentage of the U.S. population that is white has decreased from 79.6 percent in 1980 to 61.9 percent in 2014. The percentage of Latino Americans has increased from 6.4 percent to 17.3 percent over the same time period, while both the African American and Asian American populations have grown, too. There are growing signs that the rate of change is in
