State Of The Union in 2015

Updated on October 25, 2016

Introduction (Chapter 1)

SOur State of the Union is at a crossroad. The nation is deeply divided into red and blue states. How we survive and thrive as a nation depends on how we proceed into the next few years. It will affect our lives and our children's lives for generations. It is time to take stock and see where we have come from and where we are going. I believe and trust the Constitution. It is our guide that has served us well for over 200 years. Let's rely on our instincts and proceed with confidence.

-June 2015

Summary of Hubbook

As we all experienced these past few years, the country is heading in the wrong direction. Our elected officials seems to be concentrated on getting re-elected rather than fixing the problems they were elected to solve. Our challenges are many. From the economy to foreign policy to our aging population to our failed education system to our broken immigration policy and our increasing debt... How do we turn things around?

Chapter 2 - I define conservative principles for those who may not understand the true meaning of conservatism.

Chapter 3 - I list some of the recent government failures...

Chapter 4 - I propose a roadmap for progressives who wants to change our society and can't wait.

Chapter 5 - Some ideas on fixing and improving our electoral process.

Chapter 6 - A guide to how to vote.

Chapter 7 - My idea on fixing the banking system which is intricately tied to our economic recover.

Chapter 8 - Solutions to our immigration problem that is in the making for over 50 years.

Chapter 9 - Fixing the Bloated Federal Registry.

Chapter 10 - An example of a simple solution that even President Obama supports when he was a senator.

Chapter 11 - A list of recommended rules to live by. This is my suggestion especially for the young generation. It will make your life a lot easier and you will be happier to boot.

Chapter 12 - What went wrong with GW Bush that lead to current state.

      Your observation is correct. I don't think you know what conservatism is all about. I could be wrong but we will see. The problem is that the American Media for the most part is liberal and they demonize conservatives and distort there positions all day long. The liberals cannot win on debating the ideas and the issues and resort to name calling and distortion. They however do not have any solutions. Their policies are full of "good intentions" but do not solve anything and in my humble opinion cause more harm than good to the very people they are trying to help.

      You are obviously of the opinion that the only reason that I don't agree with conservatives is because I don't understand them. Wow. Your presumption is something to behold.
