You'll get emails whenever I post articles on OpEdNews

I am a Nationally Certified Acute Care Nurse Practitioner/ARNP with an MBA in Health Systems Management and a former financial advisor Series 7 and 63. I was the Democratic Nominee in both 2006 and 2008 for Florida's 5th District U.S House seat in Florida. I ran as a No Party Affiliation candidate for U.S. House District 12 in 2012.

Please consult my website http://www.johnrussellforcongress.com for detailed info about myself and my positions on the issues.

I am interested in speaking credibly and forcefully on what I believe are the most important policy issues to ordinary Americans at the present time. Today the economy and a corrupt bipartisan scam is underway, the end result of which will be lives lost along socio-economic lines as a result of planned policy changes designed to protect the top echelon at the larger expense of a diminished economy overall and opportunity for a new shared prosperity.

In addition, given my experience in elective politics I will continue to speak out on the issue that in reality trumps ALL other matters political and that is Fair Elections. 2012 provided some interesting experiences and evidence that should give pause to anyone who hears my story from this latest election.

We must fight to expose the root cause of poor government and "corporate skuldugery" and that is the Lobbyist gun that is to the head of every elected official which of course is the Lobbyist checkbook.

Unless we take matters into our own hands we will have no one to blame but ourselves. Discussion of my election contest in 2006 appears on page 375 of Mark Crispin Miller's revised edition of "Fooled Again."

I will keep you posted! Thanks, John Russell

The Rush To "The Cliff," The Deception vs Unspoken Alternatives This article represents an expansion of the views delineated in my recent article on the Fiscal Cliff. In this article I compare the massive sales promotion of impending danger to that of the sales pitch that we hear as the functionaries push our nation toward war. Rather than blindly accept the propaganda I propose rationale solutions for a better country going forward that will broaden and strengthen our economy for all.

Fiscal Cliff My Ass The "Shock" is Worth The Drop! I describe the real genesis behind the so called nonsense of The Fiscal Cliff and its solutions. It's about YOU/ME US dying sooner and how the poweers that be are going about doing just that in the interests of generating fiscal savings and further concentration of economic and political power at our collective expense.

Health Care Reform It's True Meaning As a health care provider (ARNP), I am in a unique position to see and understand the problems inherent in our present system and what health reform means to us as patients and providers coming down the pike. An improved Medicare that permits ANYONE of ANY age to buy-in affordably is the ONLY solution that is right for both the American People and those of us who provide that care.
