Issues:

Various

Goal(s) of Discussion: Don’t be fooled by magic sounding terms like “public-private partnerships.” It all comes down to us paying more in taxes, tolls and fees or simply adding the cost to our state and federal debt.

Issues:

Issues:

Various

Goal(s) of Discussion: The little that gets done in Washington DC is like sandcastles on the beach - wiped away with the tide of the next Administration. That needs to change.

by Teapot Harding (Principles: Shrinking Government) - November 22, 2017

Goal(s) of Discussion: Greedy owners who pocket their tax cuts under the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act will soon be out of business. Those that hire more employees and raise wages will increase their profits.

by David D. Eisenhower (Principles: Military Restraint, Bipartisanship) - November 22, 2017

Goal(s) of Discussion: The people of Alabama are being forced to choose between an (alleged) child molester and a (confirmed) proponent of murdering unborn children. Don’t blame them if Roy Moore wins.

by Lynn B. Johnson (Principles: Power - use it or lose it) - November 17, 2017

Goal(s) of Discussion: “Vote For Us – We’re Not Trump” might win an election cycle or two but if Democrats want to become the majority party, they need to come up with something much better.

by Marvan Buren (Principles: Politics is a contact sport) - November 16, 2017
