Egberto WilliesEgberto Willies is a political activist, author, political blogger, radio show host, business owner, software developer, web designer, and mechanical engineer in Kingwood, TX. Egberto is an ardent Liberal that believes tolerance is essential. His favorite phrase is "political involvement should be a requirement for citizenship". He believes that we must get away from the current policies that reward those who simply move money/capital and produce nothing tangible for our society. If a change in policy does not occur, America will be no different than many oligarchic societies where a few are able to accumulate wealth while the rest are left out because it is mathematically impossible to catch up.

More jobs under Democrats: Stephanie Ruhle exposed Trump/GOP's job lies Stephanie Ruhle exposed the lie that Republicans have been telling for decades about jobs. It isn't like it is a hard truth to prove. Why do Democrats always seem to lack the message discipline to ensure reality sticks in the heads of the masses? Does this not seem like an easy sell? Repeat. Repeat. Repeat with facts and how it affected different group's personal economies is key.

Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) co-chair removes fear of the word (VIDEO) This interview with the co-chair of the Houston Chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) should dispel the haunting fear many on the Right and some on the Center-Left have of the group and specifically the word.

Single-Payer Medicare for All will increase taxes but you should want that I got a call from a Politics Done Right listener who said he heard that Single-Payer Medicare for All would increase the taxes of most people and it would increase government expenditures. I told him that in fact, it would raise taxes for most but that is not the whole story. To be clear, every individual will be better off for precise reasons.

President Barack Obama eulogy at Senator John McCain's memorial service President Obama gave a eulogy at John McCain's memorial service that illustrated the kind of man John McCain was. It also shows what a real president looks and sounds like for the world to see. We so miss the days where the Presidents of the United States were statespeople or at minimum acted like statespeople.

Immigration could be a fatal Achilles heel for Progressives in 2018 I always think through many degrees of indirection. One must do that to ensure that they are not succumbing to groupthink or a false belief of being right on any particular issue or occurrence. Immigration is an issue that while Progressives seem to be winning the hearts and minds of many, it may be wind pie, a mirage.

Trump Effect: I'm more concerned about police behavior than racist ranter (VIDEO) Most people would look at this video as yet another racist ranter emboldened by the Trump Effect. But what evolved in this video is much more dangerous and should give every person of color pause. When we express concerned about police, many diminish our feelings as unwarranted fear. This video should dispel that notion entirely.
