I worry about the outcome of this election and the survival of our Republic.
Of course, there is a wild card in all of this; a potent wild card that no cheap Chicago political game can beat: engagement by the American people.
Regardless of what the Romney campaign does or doesn't do where achieving victory is concerned, if the American people engage their fellow citizens, if we decide to disseminate the facts, argue the positions, ask the questions – and demand specific answers, from our fellow citizens, we can wake those among us who have been coasting along for the last four years believing that the man in the Oval Office, who is literally transforming our nation from a Constitutional Republic to a nation of Democratic Socialism, the man who uses the Marxist political slogan “Forward” in his attempt to affect a second term, is the man best suited to rescue our Republic from oblivion.
At this point, we could wring our hands and exclaim in wonderment about why Mr. Romney’s campaign seems to be non-existent, or – or – we can take on the campaign to save our Republic ourselves. As Paul Ryan said in his vice presidential nomination acceptance speech, “We can do this!” All it takes is the gathering of facts, a wee bit of patience with those who are blinded by the false back lighting of “The One,” and a dedication to the preservation of our Republic, “with liberty and justice, for all.”
Go for it, Oly.
Citizen engagement is essential.
Best of luck to you.

It has been under reported by MSM, but Donald Trump has always supported the LGBT community. Some of Trump's greatest online supporters are members of the LGBT, and are activist. At one of his yuge rallies, Trump was given a rainbow flag by some of his supporters at the rally. ...

The Ds lost their fourth special election. Some say those are Big Wins for Rs and Disaster for Ds. Other optimistic souls say each was a Win for Ds because they were close. While I tend to agree with the last statement, I won't go so far as calling it a win. Instead, I call...

Its really sad that we as Americans let the Democrats and Republicans pull games on us and keep our minds off the really important issues that face us as Americans. How can we not demand real solutions to the problems facing us as Americans. You know I set and listened to the Republican...

Has Trump lost this election? Is it over for him?He seems to be saying more and more things to piss people off. After the comment about the Kahn family, it appears that many Republicans are turning to Hilary, and the party is turning against him. Then he made comments about the...
