  • Vote No to Trump: The Trump Candidacy, A Cure Worse Than the Disease

    America is facing significant challenges. The nation is saddled with enormous debt. The recovery from the 2008 financial crisis has been slow. The political system in Washington has been almost completely taken over by self-interest and a lack of comprise. Blind partisanship has replaced the principle of putting country first. In many cases, holding office has turned into a ticket to increase personal wealth and fame, not serve the people and the public interest. This is not to say that we do not have many good people working as elected officials. We do. However, throw even the best people into a system that has been thoroughly contaminated by the institutionalization of self-interest and the nation’s prospects dim. Indeed, we are approaching a blackout. Ladies and gentlemen, these are tough times. But Donald J. Trump is not the answer.

  • Former Congressman Bob Ney of Ohio Talks: Election 2016, the Dysfunctional Political System, Which Candidate Might Be Able to Work Better with Congress, What He’s Up to Now

    If you want an insightful perspective on why the American political system is currently dysfunctional, talking to a former member of Congress is a good place to begin. From 1995 to 2006, Congressman Bob Ney of Ohio served during a time of economic prosperity. He and other Republican leaders worked with President Bill Clinton to balance the budget. It was a time when compromise still existed in Washington. Today, the word compromise is not something that often comes up regarding Democrats and Republicans. Back in 2013, we spoke with Congressman Ney about his book Sideswiped: Lessons Learned Courtesy of the Hit Men of Capitol Hill [see here]. Since then, he has become part of the media providing political analysis for Talk Media Service. He appears on numerous radio stations across the country. Additionally, this year he attended both the Republican National Convention and the Democratic National Convention, where he had a front row seat to both parties’ troubles.

    On January 20th, 1989, George Herbert Walker Bush became the 41st President of the United States. His one term in office, perhaps best remembered for his skilled leadership during Operation Desert Storm in Iraq also saw him accomplish significant achievements on the domestic front, as well as elsewhere in foreign policy. This is one of the principal points made by his White House Chief of Staff John Sununu, who served from 1989 to 1991, in his excellent book, The Quiet Man: The Indispensable Presidency of George H. W. Bush. Prior to that post, he was a three term Republican New Hampshire Governor, among other impressive accomplishments. The former executive of the Granite State felt there was a need to highlight President Bush’s domestic accomplishments during the 41st President’s White House years. With the permission of the former President and his wife Barbara, Governor Sununu penned The Quiet Man. In his book, Mr. Sununu reflects back on a variety of key moments during the administration when he was in the room with the President, and other key figures from the administration, while major policy decisions were hashed out.
