Inauguration of our 45th President of the United States: Donald J. Trump
I decided to start THE STATECRAFT OBSERVER on that day because it was a significant milestone. Not only was the election of President Trump in 2016 a historic upset, it also was during the entire election year that I found I had a passion for politics. For me it was more interesting than reality television – which seemed fitting, considering our new President.
I needed a name for my blog. A moniker under which I could write my political commentary and have debates/discussions about the issues. The word of the day on Dictionary.com was “STATECRAFT – 1. The art of government and diplomacy.” which seemed fitting, so I used it. The rest, as they say, is history.
As my experience and knowledge on political issues grows, so will the depth and quality of my writing here. That is my enduring resolution. To continue to learn, listen and comment on the greatest democracy that has ever existed.
I’m certain that my views and opinions will change over time, and that is perfectly okay. I may even end up contradicting myself in the future and I’m okay with that as well. With every conversation, debate or article I write I am seeking the truth behind the politics and the impact to the everyday American citizen.
I encourage you to reach out to me via email or twitter if you like what you read here. If you don’t, then I encourage you even more so to contact me and start a conversation!
