This week I learned Hillary Clinton may have worn an earpiece during the recent CNN foreign policy pseudo-debate, that Donald Trump is employing what the New York Times has dubbed the “big liar technique,” and Gary Johnson crashed and burned when asked about Aleppo,
When you step back and look at the presidential race with detached objectivism, it’s hard to believe anybody thinks any of these people are going to make us “Stronger Together,” or “Make America Great Again,” or whatever campaign slogan you prefer to insert.
That’s why I don’t pay a whole lot of attention to any of it.
In fact, I argue in my most recent podcast (listen HERE) that we should just pretend D.C. doesn’t exist. There might be a bit of hyperbole there, but the truth is, real change is not going to come working inside the Beltway. True lasting change will come from the bottom up – pushing from the state and local level where our activism can have some actual impact.
Along those lines, if you haven’t already, check out my recent article about Obamacare. The federal healthcare program is teetering and states could send it on over the edge. There is also a lot of work to be done at state and local level to protect your privacy from warantless surveillance. More on that HERE.
