Americans Are No Longer Represented By Their Government: Retired Educator And World War II Veteran Does Something About It

Mel E. Lindsey no longer believes the American people are represented by their government. The 90-year-old resident of Long Beach, California—who served in the U.S. Navy during World War II and who spent more than 50 years in education—is concerned for the future of the nation he fought for and for the children he taught.

Avoiding Another War In North Korea

Avoiding Another War In North Korea

During the Korean War, the United States dropped more bombs and napalm on North Korea than was used against the Japanese during World War II. The carpet bombing destroyed all of the cities and most of the villages in North Korea. More than 3,000,000 Korean civilians died in the war—most were in the North.

A Financial Toll Tax: Transform, Not Reform, The Tax System

A Financial Toll Tax: Transform, Not Reform, The Tax System

I recently awoke from a rather pleasant dream in which members of Congress and the President embraced the unique proposition that they had been elected to serve the People of the United States.

The Presidency: Character Matters

Given extraordinary—even dictatorial—powers by the Constitution, the President is expected to not only be a wise and effective administrator, but to possess the moral compass established by George Washington, the Nation’s first president. In his book[Read More…]

The Right To Vote—Effectively

The Right To Vote—Effectively

With their government under the control of corporations and special interests, the People of the United States may think they have the right to vote, but, unfortunately, they do not. When the Constitution and the Bill of Rights were written, the authors intentionally omitted this very significant detail. They failed to include the right to vote, and the error has[Read More…]

Who Should Make Political Policy, The People or The Politicians?

Who Should Make Political Policy, The People or The Politicians?

In the midst of what undoubtedly will be the nastiest and most expensive presidential campaign in American history, it is important to remember that the question is not so much whether a candidate is a good or bad person, but rather what should and will be the policies, objectives, and consequences of her or his administration?
