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.

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

By 14 Comments 1,980 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 1,457 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

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 »

Hitler, Chavez, Putin and Trump… The Constitutional Road to Tyranny

By 14 Comments 1,301 views

Many people make the mistake of thinking that dictators or tyrants always came to power illegally, through some coup or some other extra constitutional manner. Of course that is sometimes true. Both Mao and Fidel Castro fomented and then won revolutions which put them in power. But more often tyrants and dictators come to power… Read more »

Do Not Go Gently Into That Good Night… Ted Cruz, The Constitution and Third Party Choices

By 31 Comments 2,569 views

I’ve never seen a train wreck, but I’m told they are somewhat difficult to turn away from if you see one occurring right in front of you. That was my experience two nights ago watching Donald Trump roll in Indiana and then Ted Cruz suspending his campaign. What made the night almost surreal is that… Read more »

Ted Cruz’s Only Hope for Indiana and Beyond: “The Government didn’t build the American Dream…”

By 33 Comments 1,375 views

This has been a tough week for Ted Cruz. He lost 5 states by double digits. Of course they were all northeastern states which means there’s a snowball’s chance in Hell that they will be landing in the red column in November. Nonetheless Trump won them fair and square and he appears to have momentum…. Read more »

“A Republic, if you can keep it.” Donald Trump and the Tyranny of the Mob…

By 127 Comments 5,965 views

  For the last eight years I’ve been shaking my head, simply bewildered that so many Americans could be so insane as to vote for Barack Obama for president. Not surprisingly, once Obama was ensconced in the White House things played out pretty much as predicted with virtually every month bringing new news of a… Read more »

War is Hell: Ted Cruz, Dresden and Monitoring Muslim Neighborhoods…

By 4 Comments 1,272 views

I saw a segment last week of Ted Cruz on the Jimmy Kimmel show. Kimmel asked Cruz about his proposal to monitor Muslim neighborhoods. Cruz answered, and then, not surprisingly, Kimmel asked whether or not monitoring those neighborhoods would just create more terrorists. In the end Kimmel stated that they would have to agree to… Read more »

Donald Trump as the Isolationist in Chief… Not a Recipe for Success

By 11 Comments 1,640 views

As I’ve said before, if Donald Trump is the nominee I will vote for him over anyone the donkey party runs. Why? One reason… the single greatest threat to our nation is open borders and the continued entry of people from failed states with no understanding or appreciation for limited government or individual rights. The… Read more »
