Clash of Cultures: An evaluation of the status of America by 4 prominent liberal Democrats.


By Jeff Erding

Posted in Wykoff Commentary

I bet you never thought you’d see the day I wrote a column quoting prominent liberals. I don’t blame you; I’m surprised myself! Recent events have convinced me the best way to help America back on a path to sanity is to communicate the opinions of some liberal people who have first hand knowledge of what is really going on in Washington and the world.

If you are happy with the direction of America and think Congress and President Obama are doing a good job, please quit reading; you are obviously a person with an inflexible ideology who cannot be persuaded by either facts or reason.

Professor Turley has been very vocal in calling attention to the dangerous actions and policies of the present Administration and the Democrats in the Senate. Turley wrote an essay published in the May, 2014 Legion Magazine titled, “A Question of Power: the Imperial Presidency.” The article was blistering in its criticism of the Administration and Democratic Senators (including Amy Klobachar and Al Franken). Mr. Turley blasted his fellow Democrat .....
