The last few weeks have been a whirlwind for my transhumanist presidential campaign. I'm excited that transhumanism -- the social movement that aims to use radical science and technology to improve the human species -- continues to be represented in politics in a major way.
Like a man embracing his bride while coyly winking over his shoulder at one of his wedding party guests, Donald Trump used the GOP convention to stir passion among the party base while lightly romancing LGBT people.
No presidential candidate since 1952 in Trump's low polling position at this stage of the campaign has won the popular vote.
Why endure eleven more weeks of humiliation? When you think about it, quitting beats losing. Trump's entire history as a businessman is dumping out of business ventures once they start failing. Why not call it a day sooner rather than later?
Cruz has been quiet, these days, watching the show. Only recently, the world was calling his speech at the Republican National Convention political suicide. Might they soon be calling it his golden ticket to the White House?
This column has always loved a good rant. Most of the time, we provide our own rant at the end of the column, on a subject too big to be contained in talking points.
If you're watching the Olympic games, you may have noticed "Hillary for President" ads. She's bought $13.6 million worth, while Donald Trump has bought none. In fact, since garnering the Republican nomination, he's spent $0 on TV.
In my initial comments about the recent political conventions, I opined that the socio-political dynamics between Trump/GOP and Clinton/Democrats were eerily similar to the one in Kenya between Jubilee and CORD. However, my friend's response was scathing and biting.
Under our respective "purple tents," we can all recognize that America is more united than divided, that thoughtful people can have thoughtful dialogue, and that disputes can get resolved and urgent issues solved.
This is the fourth in a four-part series on presidential debates. [Part 1, Part 2, Part 3] Democrats and Republicans ...
The Gospel of Matthew is written from a time of crisis and presents an urgent message in response to that coming crisis. While its apocalyptic tone...
Clinton has gotten a bigger convention bounce than Trump and I think that is because the DNC was a more positive and uplifting experience than the RNC. Maybe Americans prefer optimism to pessimism. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was a tale of two conventions.
Whatever you think of the current election, the Trump strategy is worth taking a look at, because it has been both Trump's key to success but also the source of his currently declining poll numbers. Trump has rewritten the rules, but also authored the guidebook on how to potentially defeat him.
Video of Hillary played on the screen. "You're like her," my grandma said. "She works so hard. And she is so strong. See, even when she's sad, she's strong. She's your example. When you're sad, you can be strong, too. Do you understand me?"
It is more important than ever for American Muslims to find opportunities to interact with Republicans face to face. I plan to attend whatever Republican rallies I can, not as a protest, but to distribute flower pens and put a positive face on Islam and Muslims and say Salam, I come in peace.
For four days this week, I walked around downtown Cleveland during the Republican National Convention. Countless journalists from media outlets large ...
