Trumpism is Racist and Misogynistic

By Michael E. Berumen It is time for liberals in the broadest sense of the term to come to grips with something many have avoided, heretofore–––­­­partly from gentility, partly from denial, and partly from benign ignorance.

The Republican Party Must Be Tossed Into History’s Dustbin

By Michael E. Berumen I have never been especially partisan, and, I eschew all overarching, systematic ideologies. But I have become increasingly antagonistic towards the modern Republican Party.
