About “Moving Forward”

I was extremely disappointed with the 2016 Presidential Campaign and election, and not just because I supported Bernie Sanders — I felt a Bern — and voted for Hillary Clinton. It was incredibly discouraging to see how everyone talked past each other and there was no real substantive debate. Everything, especially on social media, seemed to focus on the scandals rather than the candidates’ platforms.

So, after Donald Trump won the Electoral College, I decided to start writing about our politics. Obviously, I lean to the left, but for national offices, I’ve voted for Republicans about as many times as I’ve voted for Democrats. I’ll try to be objective, and I encourage you to share your comments. I’ll try to respond to reasonable arguments as often as I can, and I’ll try to start posting here at least once per week.
