About

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.

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

By 21 Comments 1,474 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 1,522 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 »

Ted Cruz the Leader vs. Donald Trump the Ruler…

By 22 Comments 1,826 views

On Wednesday night Ted Cruz addressed the GOP convention in Cleveland. At first I was a bit disappointed as I was hoping for a masterful dismantling of Hillary Clinton on the biggest stage of the campaign. While he hit her, it seemed almost perfunctory. But upon reflection, he did exactly what he should have done… Read more »

Helter Skelter: Black Lives Matter trying to succeed where Charles Manson failed…

By 75 Comments 3,048 views

Not in the literal sense. Charles Manson wanted to incite a race war because he thought that after a race war that saw blacks kill all non blacks (Manson and his “family” would survive however…) that he would return to rule them. You can be pretty sure that the Black Lives Matter guys aren’t seeking… Read more »

A Nation is Calling: Ted Cruz Should Launch a Coup d’état

By 80 Comments 7,431 views

Ted Cruz has agreed to speak at the GOP convention. Ted Cruz has maneuvered himself into a speaking spot at the GOP convention. I’m not sure which of those statements is true. It doesn’t matter. What does matter is that Ted Cruz is speaking at the convention and will be speaking to much of the… Read more »

240 Years and Counting… Notes on the Declaration & the Constitution

By 1 Comment 844 views

Two hundred and forty years ago our founding fathers decided to risk their lives and livelihoods to begin a new nation by signing the Declaration of Independence. It was, in the eyes of the British, nothing less than treason… which indeed it was. Although the skirmishes that led to the break had been going on… Read more »

Barack Obama’s God Complex: The Danger of a Lame Duck President In An Election Year

By 13 Comments 1,770 views

One thing that tends to get lost in an election year where the incumbent is not on the ticket is the fact that the person in office is still at the controls of the government.  That is, if the media wishes us to forget. In 2008 they didn’t want us to forget and they had… Read more »

Freedom & Fortune… The Spoiled American Voters of 2016 Squander Their Inheritance

By 14 Comments 2,176 views

In the segment of the financial planning industry that caters to the uber wealthy, the rule of thumb is that by the 2nd generation 70% of family fortunes are lost and by the 3rd 90% is gone. Why? “Most of them have no clue as to the value of money or how to handle it.”… Read more »

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are tightening their grips on the Democratic and Republican presidential nominations.

Why I May Pull the Lever For Trump: Shooting Oneself in the Head vs. in the Foot

By 34 Comments 1,587 views

I can’t stand Donald Trump. Like many others I’ve been long aware of him since he first splashed his way onto the national stage as a self proclaimed real estate genius. It was, frankly, pretty entertaining to watch him showcase government dysfunction in the Wollman Rink affair and I found myself visiting the glitzy Taj… Read more »

Calling BS on Bootlickers Hannity, Gallagher et. al Because I Don’t Slobber at the Altar of Donald Trump

By 214 Comments 6,075 views

NOTE: Previously I suggested Dennis Prager as part of this group. I actually meant Mike Gallagher. From what I have heard, Prager is decidedly anti-Clinton and not a Trump apologist. My apologies… Carl von Clausewitz famously said “War is the continuation of politics by other means”. He is of course right. But it’s also true… Read more »
