Portfolios > • Politics I (some images NFS)

The acrimony evident in United States politics is appalling. Social, political, and cultural practices shape our lives and government is polarizing the electorate and emasculating our country. Who we are as individuals, and collectively as a nation, is reflected by our decisions and actions. Timothy Egan (NYT op-ed, 3/5/16) reveals in a searing commentary that vast numbers of us applaud the existing rancor. I am appalled because, as he concludes: “The beast Is Us”.

It is always timely to examine our democracy engaging in the political process. Vetting each candidate is critical, especially this year. I believe electing Trump or Cruz or Rubio would be ruinous on many fronts and feel compelled to show why.
