is a news and public opinion forum dedicated to the analysis of, and commentary on various socioeconomic issues that is not based on dogmatic social or political ideology, but rather on reason, and the pragmatic needs of the American people.
A freelance writer (http://beyond-the-political-spectrum.blogspot.com/), grant proposal writer, and unlicensed educator, I am something of a
social crusader. I have been active both locally and nationally in
various social, economic, and political causes since the late 1980s.
And although I am convinced that America stands alone in the annals of
world history as a bastion of personal opportunity and equality, it can
be so much more, but only if we are willing to think beyond our often
blind adherence to dogmatic political ideologies and see our collective
needs based on pragmatism.
