Who Do You Trust?

Alan Partis | June 27, 2009

Jack Nicholson’s Joker character in “Batman” once famously said, “Who do you trust?” The screenplay writer(s) were spot on.

Slavery Isn’t So Bad, Is It?

Alan Partis | May 1, 2009

With some degree of success, I have made a lifetime of trying to make good decisions and working hard to be able to support my family without the need to burden others. I have taken responsibility for my actions and planned for future contingencies.

Oh The Wishy Washy Middle

Alan Partis | October 20, 2008

I don’t think you really grasp the concept of political parties and the American election process very well. If you’re not a member of a particular party, why should you be involved in helping to nominate their candidate?

How to Vote

Alan Partis | October 17, 2008

So the real question is for individual voters to have enough of a clue about themselves to know how to vote.

The Popular Vote

Alan Partis | December 10, 2004
