The impacts of 911 are still being felt, yet others today are doing far worse damage and causing more deaths in the name of political ideology than the carnage caused by the attacks on September 11, 2001.  

First, the insurrectionists on January 6, but instead of saying never forget this seditious act. Let us ask ourselves why we’re not the unified humanity we need to be in order to prevent another blight on history?

The rise of Fascism in Spain followed a classic trajectory that can serve as a blueprint for how Democracy can be destroyed.  

My grandfather's family fled Fascism in Spain and my dad's family lost everything when we left Communism in Cuba. These facts underline how liars can dismantle our fragile Democracy.

After years of having a government and leaders without ethics, it's necessary to stop all lies and cheating in politics and everywhere.

Ethical standards are the moral principles that govern everyone’s behavior while carrying out or conducting any activity.

For example, in sports we have seen this lately in horse racing, where most of the time there are small prices used in many tickets and bets. The cheater who is dangerous to the bettor is the low percentage one who strikes sparingly without anyone even noticing.

These are the Republican dirty dozen plus one member of Congress who are AWOL attending a GOP party instead of working.

The Republican lawmakers are facing a backlash after misleading the US House of Representatives about skipping votes to attend #CPAC. They are not representing their constituents in Congress by working hard on a much-needed stimulus package for the #USA.

Angry American Voters

We cannot defeat an enemy without fully learning his identity.  The disappointment, sadness, fear, or hate some people may be currently experiencing are not enemies. Righteous anger may be the best tool we can have at our disposal to overcome those other feelings if we exert anger mindfully. 

Our real enemy, I believe, has been our inability to accept our present-day existential reality —whether all of us can survive as a free nation— and, as a result of that knowledge, to fully trust ourselves in order to effect real, extraordinary change.
