Democrats Need to Consider Worst-Case Scenarios

Regardless of what party you’re in or which candidate you support, it seems to me the presidential election comes down to one question: Which Democratic candidate can best withstand the GOP attack machine? Regardless of whether Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, or John Kasich win the GOP nod, demographics and electoral college math suggest...

Supercharging the Hillary Playbook

It’s amazing that in a nation of around 247 million adults, there’s 400 million opinions on the Clinton-Sanders campaign. (Maybe the extras are just fake Facebook profiles.) So let me make it 400,000,001. Since October, Hillary Clinton has been slipping. That doesn’t mean a death knell for her candidacy; far from it. But what Clinton...

Clinton vs. Sanders on Healthcare: Who’s Right?

Join us for debate and discussion on OPEN FIRE!

The Facebook group, Open Fire (politics), was co-founed by Jeff Penn and Kevin Kelton in 2014. Our modest goal was to create a forum for civil, intelligent political discussions - not the vulgar verbal mud-wrestling we were seeing in other debate groups. Our mantra is to debate with honor, not debase with insults. Today, with 11,000 members spanning the political spectrum, we have a bigger ambition: to become a relevant, powerful voice in national politics. We hope to achieve that by leveraging social media, expanding our footprint, and partnering with other groups to magnify our voice. We hope you'll join us in that lofty goal. So please join the group, read our Guidelines, and jump in. Let's make the citizen voice count.
