The NEW Grand Old Party

The Republican Party is changing. And no, I’m not talking about the recent populist wave responsible for the election of President Donald J. Trump. The change I’m referring to is not happening at the national level (yet), but at the local level. How ’bout that small government!?

Now as the dust settles and my routine somewhat returns to normalcy, I couldn’t imagine a better topic to break my … Read more…
