Getting Involved with Change in the Era of Sophism

soph·ism ˈsäfˌizəm/ noun a fallacious argument, especially one used deliberately to deceive.   Activism in 2018 2018 is an interesting time to get involved with politics. I recently read Gen. Hayden’s book as well as James Comey’s and there are some striking observations that are made by both men. At the top of the list, is an administration with a vastly different view of the truth, the Intelligence Community, and most importantly, the worldviews that are expressed. This falls very closely within the definition of sophism. Now to many that are not working within politics or have a reason to know what sophism is, this may seem like an area that would not likely be front and center with an administration as well as a political campaign. But the closer that you look at this simple concept, the more it looks like a concept that well describes what is currently going on within the administration. This includes the continued obsession with varying degrees of truth and most importantly how that applies to politics and legislating.

Many Many Thanks 27 June 2018

“Let us never forget that government is ourselves and not an alien power over us. The ultimate rulers of our democracy are not a President and senators and congressmen and government officials, but the voters of this country.” Franklin D. Roosevelt First, I want to say thank you. It is the honor of my life to have been part of this process. I came off of active duty orders October 1st and 7 months later I was part of the 2018 Maryland primary. In my mind that is just an awesome thing! My time in the Navy reserve has been exceptional and I am intensely proud of that service. I have had mentors at each stage of my career that have changed my life forever. They have helped me see those things that I would have never seen without their help. Additionally, I have done so much that without their help, I would simply have not had the chance. So, the 7,708 people that voted for me, please know that the work is not done, and we are far from finished. I know each of you gave great thought into your choice and believe me when I say that having earned your vote in this election demonstrates that our democracy if strong and we can make the change we seek. Please know that words can not truly express how...
