The product of a military family, growing up in Naples, Italy and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and being stationed in Germany for two years while in the Army, Vince spent half of his first quarter century seeing the US from outside of its own borders. That perspective, along with a French wife and two decades as a struggling entrepreneur have only fueled an appreciation for freedom and the fundamental greatness of the gifts our forefathers left us.

Rome Long Survived Countless Incompetent, Narcissistic Emperors, Will America Survive Barack Obama and His Successor?

By No Comments 86 views

I’m writing this while sitting on a cruise ship that’s docked in Mallorca, Spain. I’m heading to France and have just spent 4 days in Italy. I’ve only had a cursory look at the news from home, and what I’ve caught has been depressing, like this entire election cycle. One of the most interesting things… Read more »


Sure, Donald Trump may shiv us… but the country can’t survive Hillary Clinton’s thugs

By 38 Comments 1,622 views

Jonah Goldberg had a great piece over at National Review on Saturday. The title was: If Candidate Trump Can’t Be Managed, What Makes You Think President Trump Could Be? He makes a strong argument that a President Trump is going to be a disaster for the country, the Republican party, and particularly conservatives. He suggests… Read more »


Identity Politics – Barack Obama Fails Black America With Liberalism

By 8 Comments 1,518 views

In 2008 when Barack Obama was elected president, much of America – including millions of white people – thought the election of a black man to the presidency would prove that America had finally overcome its racist past and truly become a colorblind nation. Alas, that was not to be. Not surprisingly, after almost eight… Read more »


Fifteen Years Later: The 9-11 Attacks and the Silver Lining Found Within

By 3 Comments 617 views

Yesterday was of course the 15th anniversary of the attacks of 9-11. Like most people, I remember that day, that moment when I realized the nation was under attack like no other day in my life. I remember walking into a practically deserted Kroger supermarket near midnight to get some food as I hadn’t eaten… Read more »


Need help deciding which horrible candidate to vote for in 2016? Imperfect America’s Election Decision Engine

By 6 Comments 1,102 views

I for one am dismayed beyond imagination about the political situation the United States finds itself in today. We may be seeing the worst pair of candidates to grace the top of the main party tickets in the history of the country. Both are morally corrupt. Both are arrogant, self centered and greedy. Both are… Read more »


Colin Kaepernick Takes the Easy Way Out… Victimhood

By 15 Comments 1,570 views

Colin Kaepernick is certainly an articulate young man. That was obvious from his interaction with the press in the locker room where he faced a phalanx of reporters asking him about his decision to sit through the national anthem to bring attention to the “oppression” of black men. Given that this is the first year… Read more »


Thoughts on Trump – When Life Gives You Lemons…

By 43 Comments 2,343 views

While I’ve come to despise Donald Trump, I hope he wins in November… Donald Trump is a lying, manipulating, protectionist big government Democrat. I’ll still be voting for him, however, because Hillary Clinton is all of that and more. She will keep the welcome mat open for illegal immigrants from all sorts of 3rd world… Read more »


Hillary Clinton: Where George Orwell Meets the Borg…

By 11 Comments 1,703 views

A few months ago, with his usual hyperbole Donald Trump boasted that he could shoot someone in the middle of 5th Avenue and his supporters would still vote for him. Sadly, I think he’s probably right. What’s becoming more apparent every day however is that Hillary Clinton could probably make the same boast with equal… Read more »


The Trump Campaign for the White House: When Losing Means Winning

By 21 Comments 1,352 views

I don’t know what to think about Donald Trump… I was a big fan last year when he stormed the race with his vow to build a wall. I wasn’t a Trump supporter but I was very thankful that he put the issue of illegal immigration front and center of the race, exactly where it… Read more »


America’s Game of Russian Roulette: Clinton vs. Trump or Revolution vs. War

By 33 Comments 1,428 views

I remember in 2008 I told my wife that that presidential election was the most important in a generation. I told her in 2012 that that election was the most important in my lifetime. Both of those statements were completely true. In putting Barack Obama in the White House, for the first time Americans elected… Read more »
