The Republican Party, as many observers have noted, is facing the prospect of a long-term decline as a national political party. Since 1992, they have lost four out of the last six presidential elections.
This is not about differing opinions on issues or presenting new solutions to problems. Instead, this is entirely about the rise of fascism and hatred in our nation that comes from pandering to people who are highly uneducated, ignorant and looking for simple answers to a complex world.
At the end of the day, our president becomes kind of like our surrogate daddy (or mommy). This is the person we want our kids to aspire to be, the ultimate American role model who represents us all over the world. So, before you settle on your candidate of choice, please take a minute to ask yourself what kind of daddy Donald Trump would make.
Last night -- July 28 -- we watched history being made. Hillary Clinton's acceptance of the nomination of the Democratic Party for President of the Un...
Is this a presidential election or a bad version of The Wizard of Oz? The long and perilous journey along the yellow brick campaign trail to the November election is almost over.
As this historic moment approaches it is inarguable that the shattering of this particular glass ceiling will have a powerful and particular impact on the American women and girls who will be watching.

Truth is I've been a one-issue voter for most of my voting life. I didn't often want to admit it because I know some would say being so is unethical. If you put all your caring eggs into only one basket, the other caring baskets go empty.

This isn't a plea to ask Iranian-Americans to vote for Hillary Clinton. However, when it comes to minorities, it's unclear whether we stand a chance against a man who spews vitriol and rants about bans and walls.
To see what the Trump/Clinton matchup really means, it's helpful to look not just at this week's Democratic convention but to another convention. Earlier in July, speaking to an energized crowd at the annual LULAC (League of United Latin American Citizens) gathering in Washington, D.C.
Instead of preying on the fear of the nation, Obama focused her speech around two people. No, not Clinton and Trump, but Sasha and Malia Obama.

DNC speakers can be inspiring. Reassuring. Maybe we're going to be okay after all. I didn't see a bunch of liars up there, though they have probably all been less than truthful at times in their public lives. I saw people mostly deluding themselves at least as much as they delude us.
