Be Careful of What You Ask For....

The other candidate has no such agenda and no history that would suggest that you would be in personal mortal danger should this candidate win.

The Competent Citizen v The Philosopher King

Egalitarian Democracy should include equality of income opportunities, access to outcomes, and the equitable distribution of wealth along with the overriding notions of "one man one vote", and "equal justice under law".

This is what happens when....

Question for the Day After the "Summit"

Trump's praise of Putin borders on treason. Speculation, surmise. and conjecture continue to mount and swirl around the dynamics of their relationship...

The question that's asked that continues to vex and puzzle analysts and pundits: "Just what exactly does Putin have on Trump? Is it video tape of Trump being compromised by Russian Prostitutes?"
