Nothing so upholds the laws as the punishment of persons whose rank is as great as their crime.Cardinal de Richelieu
Do you see Washington as broken as I and many other people do? Dark money controlling the fate of the masses with out-of-touch policies and often immoral elitist politicians. Congress that does not legislate in the interests of people as much as it does in the interests of corporate America, or a two-party system that funnels everyone back to serve the wishes of the elites. Runaway government subsidies and tax breaks to those who need it the least. This is about Punditry, a website that writes what many of us think.
Punditry is also about writing good opinions that matter. It is about expressing one’s views and frustrations about a GOP establishment that paved the way for Donald Trump to become our 45th President. As much about Democrats beholden to special interests.
Americans are looking for solutions to force our government to speak to the people, about the people, and for the people. Not just the very few. Not just the very rich. And not to serve the interests of both
AMERICA HAS BECOME A COUNTRY OF CORPORATIONS, NOT PEOPLE
Since the era of Reaganomics, the United States has become a country of corporations, not people. The pandemic proved this point without a shadow of a doubt as millions struggle while corporate America enjoys record high stock market returns fueled mostly by incessant government infusion of cash.
As someone who voted for the Republican Party since 1984, the disillusionment over the Party’s mission and core values has left many, like me, with a bitter taste in their mouths. Gone are the inclusionary politics to be replaced by White Supremacy. Gone is the GOP’s soul, which has morphed into a magnet for toxic rhetoric and racist policies.
Black Lives Matter should never be debatable, or responded to with a slogan that perpetuates racism and bigotry.
Ours is a lonely voice in the wilderness, but there is no better and more effective weapon than the right word, said at the right time, and for the right reasons. I am here to say these words, and then some.
