FREEDOM: The unfounded and unfunded myths of entitlement

Policy - MinisterialRANCHO SANTA FE, Ca., November 21, 2014 – Our elected officials have a ministerial duty to create and administer the law without allowing their personal ideologies to affect this responsibility. They are not supposed to abuse whatever limited discretion they may have nor are they to perform their mission with improvidence. Based upon those criteria, they have failed miserably when it comes to what have become known as “entitlements” … Read more

Gambling on the Affordable Care Act to cure political ignorance

ACA - Or NotRANCHO SANTA FE, Ca., November 19, 2013 –  Political ignorance is a communicable disease that has reached epidemic proportions. It is an airborne virus that puts people at risk every time an infected politician or Party sycophant opens his or her mouth. Unfortunately, the Affordable Care Act not only doesn’t cover it, it appears to be responsible for the most recent outbreak.

Common symptoms include: Elevated voices and blood pressure; the recitation of petty bullet points any time a television camera is present or someone attempts to discuss an issue intelligently; an endless stream of e-mail solicitations for donations to spread the disorder; and the development of a chronic blindness to reason … Read more

As the healthcare industry in the United States represents approximately one-sixth of our nation’s economy, tampering with it raises risks and rewards that can affect the lives of every American citizen. Let’s examine the good, the bad, and the ugly elements of the controversial law’s journey … Read more

Leadership vacuum: Parties prevail over the People

Shutdown MotageRANCHO SANTA FE, Ca., October 7,  2013 – As we enter Week Two of the most recent Government shutdown, one fact should be clear: there is an absence of leadership in Washington, D.C. The lines have been drawn between the two Parties, and they are willing to sacrifice any shred of intelligence and integrity that might still be associated with them for a meaningless political victory. While everyone is defending their position, no one is leading.

Leadership brings people together to accomplish a goal that would otherwise be beyond their reach. It requires the ability to build trust, and trust cannot be established when one’s actions are incongruent with one’s words … Read more
