About Me

Counselor, economist and public servant.

Have you ever wondered...

Why have we liberals been assigned the label 'left' when we're actually right?

I'm an economist in Colorado and post here and on other sites because I'm appalled at how small, mean spirited and twisted our patriotism has become. Perhaps I am na´ve, but I still believe this nation could be a light on the hilltop; an inspiration to the world. Maybe it is because I look beyond how things are, and see how they should be, and I believe every post that advances truth instead of lies helps.

"A politician thinks of the next election; a statesman (woman) of the next generation. A politician looks for the success of his (her) party; a statesman (woman) for that of his (her) country. The statesman (woman) wishes to steer, while the politician is satisfied to drift."

-- James Freeman Clarke

It is too bad our nation is filled with so many mediocre politicians and far too few statesmen (and stateswomen!). We've been drifting far too long.

The dialog's beginning to change, though. Look at Senator Elizabeth Warren. THERE is a stateswoman!
