If I were a Republican . . .
By Bob Neal, The Countryman - February 18, 2018

When Ronald Reagan was elected president in 1980, George Will, a conservative columnist for the Washington Post, wrote that Reagan had won because Republicans had ideas and Democrats had none.

By Bob Neal, The Countryman - February 11, 20180

Will Rogers, the 20th century sage from Oklahoma, famously said, “I belong to no organized party. I am a Democrat.”
