Two Victory Laps: Trump Wins Electoral Vote and Ron Paul Gets One EV from Texas!

We needed two victory laps today:  One for the REAL election – the vote of the electors in the various states to elect Donald J. Trump and Mike Pence President and Vice President of the United States. But more interesting to me is the one vote an unknown Texas elector voted – casting his or […]

Term Limits, Initiative and Referendum and Better Ballot Access (and Statewide Indigent Defense) Ought to be in the Debate!

I have written on this and maybe the Huffman Advance got me excited about issues again but let me add three more planks for a great platform:  Term limits:  We need some variation of the constitutional amendment Delegate Sam Rasoul introduced last year (HJ18) that limits terms to 12 years.  It ought to be 8 […]

How the GOP Could Maybe WIN NOVA – Divorce Law Reform!

Another 1989 platform item for Sanders for Delegate, besides cut the car tax, substantially abolish parole and reform sovereign immunity, was divorce law reform.

Was that Sandy the Blogger at the Huffman Advance Friday Night?

Yes it was!  Sandy roamed around a bit – with media credentials – I had to convince people I was not the evil fake news mogul called the Main Stream Media!  Was seen at the Corey Stewart and Jill Vogel (and briefly Bryce Reeves’ hospitality suite) noshing on the food (but not the booze!) and […]

What Could YOU (or the Green Party) Buy With SEVEN MILLION dollars?

A Modest Proposal for Delegate Sam Rasoul: Run for Lieutenant Governor as a Democrat (or even maybe a Libertarian)!

I sure hope Del. Rasoul isn’t upset at me on this – he is an idealistic young (well younger than me – he’s 35 and I am – well old enough I’ll need to lay down after writing this part of the blog post!) legislator who is in politics for the right reasons.  Consider these […]
