*****************************************************



Thomas Bonsell is a former newspaper editor (in Oregon, New York and Colorado) United States Air Force cryptanalyst and National Security Agency intelligence agent. He became one of American journalism's leading constitutional experts through years of study at Georgetown University Graduate School of Government in Washington, D.C., and tries (without much success) to be patient with people who argue endlessly on subjects they have never studied. He is the author of "The Un-Americans: Trashing of the United States Constitution in the American Press", a critique of the mainstream media for ignorance of, or disdain for, our constitutional principles of self-government. He left newspaper work years ago, disgusted at the direction the Fourth Estate ~ under the mismanagement of ineffectual, out-of-touch, can't-do executives ~ was taking away from honest responsible journalism and the observation that there was no place in the mainstream media for a progressive, or liberal, constitutional "expert". Bonsell is an honors graduate of Woodbury College (Los Angeles, California) with a bachelor of business administration degree. He is profiled in Marquis Who's Who in America. (Self-portrait, above, was handled to make author/artist appear prettier than he actually is.)

DIFFERENCES BETWEEN LIBERAL AND CONSERVATIVE There is a marked difference between liberals and conservatives that liberals seem reluctant to emphasize. To regain the advantage in national affairs from destructive conservatives liberals must start informing Americans where they stand.

Protecting Our Constitution From Those Who Would 'Save' It Americans who care about preserving the United States Constitution should be concerned about the conservative judicial philosophy called "originalism" that's espoused by judges such as Antonin Scalia and right-wing supporters of President George W. Bush. But "originalism" ~ or "original intent of the Founders" ~ weakens the very Constitution righties claim to be saving.

One Way to Solve US Economic Problems The United States has been on the road to financial ruin, starting with the election of Ronald Reagan in 1980. There is an exit, if we are willing to try and to persevere however long it takes. And it will take time.

Liberals Ignore True Conservative Agenda It is commonly thought that conservative Republican control of all branches of government has been an absolute failure brought on through sheer incompetence. But that depends on how one determines success or failure, and to do so without identifying the objectives of those in power leads to incorrect conclusions. This article examines GOP "failures."
