I truly believe this election is not about Republicans versus Democrats. This is an election for change, for someone who wants to reduce taxes and the power of government, versus someone who wants to strengthen its strangle hold of debt on the American people.
A true career Washington insider versus the ultimate unscripted, unpolished outsider. Someone who has enriched themselves with a career in business versus a politician who is now worth over 250 million and runs a foundation who took foreign donations from countries that violate human rights for favors while acting as Secretary of state.
I am not a journalist.
I am an ordinary US citizen concerned with the direction of our country. I come from a hard-working middle class family, people who believe the American dream is possible.
I was born in Staten Island, NY, but grew up in a small town with my father and sister in New Jersey. Being a single parent, my father struggled but always put his children first.
They say it takes a village to raise a child and it did. In addition to my father, family and friends played a huge role in instilling the values I hold true today. Hard work, honesty and always looking out for others have molded me into the man I am today.
In 2008 I was a sophomore at Towson University. I had no health insurance because my father had lost his job.
I was swept away by Obama's promises of health insurance, breaks for college students, and capitalizing on the mishaps leading to the Iraq war. His ability to speak and bring about such enthusiasm lead to me casting my absentee ballot for him.

I have said throughout this presidential campaign that it doesn't matter much which candidate wins. Both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are authoritarians and neither can be expected to roll back the leviathan state that destroys our civil liberties at home while destroying our economy and security with endless wars overseas. Candidates do not matter all that much, despite what the media would have us believe. Ideas do matter, however. And regardless of which of these candidates is elected, the battle of ideas now becomes critical.
The day after the election is our time to really focus our efforts on making the case for a peaceful foreign policy and the prosperity it will bring. While we may not have much to cheer in Tuesday's successful candidate, we have learned a good deal about the state of the nation from the campaigns. From the surprising success of the insurgent Bernie Sanders to a Donald Trump campaign that broke all the mainstream Republican Party rules - and may have broken the Republican Party itself - what we now understand more clearly than ever is that the American people are fed up with politics as usual. And more importantly they are fed up with the same tired old policies.
Last month a fascinating poll was conducted by the Center for the National Interest and the Charles Koch Institute. A broad ranging 1,000 Americans were asked a series of questions about US foreign policy and the 15 year "war on terror." You might think that after a decade and a half, trillions of dollars, and thousands of lives lost, Americans might take a more positive view of this massive effort to "rid the worl ...
A few weeks back we were among the first report on Hillary's wall street speeches leaked by WikiLeaks. Within those speeches, Hillary's comments regarding the need for both a "public and private" position on policy issues drew a lot of attention from voters.
But, with the latest WikiLeaks dump this morning came a new revelation that Hillary isn't the only one who struggles with balancing a "public and private" position. Apparently John Podesta has also struggled with the very same balancing act. The latest example came from an email regarding the Washington Center for Equitable Growth (WCEG) which Podesta founded as an arm of his liberal/progressive "advocacy group," The Center for American Progress.
Per their website, the goal of the Washington Center for Equitable Growth, is to develop "independent" research with academics from around the country, with an emphasis on income inequality in the United States.
Over the past 40 years, economic inequality in the United States has returned to levels last seen in the 1920s. Today, the United States is in the top quarter of the world's most unequal countries. Economic mobility—a child's likelihood of occupying a different position on the income ladder than his or her parents did—has fallen well behind Canada, Great Britain, and other advanced economies. A ...
Treasury prices fall Monday, pushing yields higher, after the Federal Bureau of Investigation spurred a risk-on rally by telling Congress it wouldn't pursue charges against Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
