Once, we had open & honest conversations about important issues

When America Was Great Before, We Had Open & Honest Conversations on Important Issues.

For the last 40 years, I wrote and published thousands of articles and comments about important and controversial issues.  I did it to make people aware of important issues that affected their lives.  Not everyone agreed with me all the time.  However, I was trusted and respected by all segments of the community as a lawyer, elected official, radio talk-show host, guest columnist, adjunct college professor, and executive director of LibertyAndProsperity.com. 
All that changed five weeks ago.  That was when I won the Primary Election, and became the Republican candidate for Congress in South Jersey.   Now, Democrats all over the country are falsely calling me a hater, racist and bigot.

America's culture of free and open discussion on public issues started long before the First Amendment to our Constitution.  Back in 1731, Benjamin Franklin wrote:  “If all printers were determined not to print anything till they were sure it would offend nobody, there would be very little printed”.  

Franklin also wrote:  “When men differ in opinion, both sides ought equally to have the advantage of being heard by the public.   When Truth and Error have fair play, the former is always an overmatch for the latter”. 

When America was great, Americans freely and openly voiced their opinions on public issues.   They also respected others, even when they disagreed.  Back then, Americans got smarter by learning from each other.

Today, far too many Americans are afraid to openly express their opinions for fear of losing friends, customers, or their jobs.   Too many Americans use arguments to ridicule or bully those who disagree.  Too many Americans blame others for problems, while doing nothing to work with others to fix those problems. 

Two of our biggest problems today involve race and immigration.   Those are problems that few people dare to discuss openly.   These are problems that are getting worse every year.

I am running for Congress, because I think Democratic Party politics made problems in our cities worse during the past 50 years.   I think Republican President Donald Trump is taking a different approach, and making things better.   Record numbers of blacks and Hispanics are working again   I think we can make even more progress if we  honestly talk about what worked and didn't work in the past and what we should do and not do in the future. 
This week, I plan to discuss these topics at the following three forums:.
