    Ethical Dilemmas That Leaders Face

    Ethical Dilemmas That Leaders Face

    Is it ethical for a leader to make an unethical or immoral decision? Clearly, if you dare to lead, you will be frequently faced with such dilemmas. Yes, you may have to decide to do the “wrong thing” for the right reason.

    Presidential Candidates: 2020

    Presidential Candidates: 2020

    Voting is one of the most important rights we have as citizens, but more than that, it is a responsibility and civic duty. We are lucky to live in a country that allows us the right to participate in the political system by voting. But, if we do not exercise the freedoms we already have, someone will see fit to take them away from us.

    Who’s Ahead in the Democrat Presidential Bid?

    Who’s Ahead in the Democrat Presidential Bid?

    The TV debates are a go, and there are a plethora of Democratic candidates to choose from to rival Donald Trump for the Presidency in 2020—over 20 in fact. We’ve already had a few candidates drop out, like former Alaskan Senator Mike Gravel and recent Governor of Colorado John Hickenlooper, and more are expected to follow with the race heating up in recent weeks. If you’re right clued up on who’s running and who’s not, and just missed the recent round of television exchanges, you can get the lowdown here. However, if you need a little bit more detail on who the main runners and riders are at this stage of the campaign trail, then look no further.

    Aussies and Politics

    I live in a country whose Prime Minister, in response to a potential recession, once gave everyone $900 each, to help stimulate the economy. I love this. I love what it says about the way we run our country.

    Bernie Sanders Guest Stars on the 'Joe Rogan Experience'

    Bernie Sanders Guest Stars on the 'Joe Rogan Experience'

    Can you feel the burn! If you were one of the millions of people chanting this catchphrase 3 years back, then there is a good chance it's 'cause you were a Bernie Sanders supporter. During his run for the presidency in the 2016 election, the former Vermont senator gained a tremendous following for his stance on a variety of topics. Demands for free health care and free college tuition made him popular among young voters across the country. Almost every poll released during the primaries announced Sanders as the winner and with the fear of Trump as the opposition it should have been a no-brainer to elect him the nominee. However, for reasons I can't comprehend, Sanders lost in the primaries and Hillary Clinton would go on to be defeated by Trump instead. Thus becoming the first time I've ever truly felt defeated while supporting a presidential candidate. And although there were a few controversies surrounding his loss, one of the greatest political underdog stories had ultimately come to an end... Or did it? Now, with the 2020 election right around the corner, the underdog has found his way back in the race. Voicing his ideas and opinions in a louder voice, to a larger audience.

    Move Nancy, Get Out the Way!

    They are corrupt. We know that. They are sycophantic. We know that. What we don’t know is what will be done about it. Here’s what won’t do a damn thing—hurling tweeted insults at it. We’ve had it up to here with you Nancy. How long should we wait?

    Second 2020 Democratic Presidential Debate, Part 2 of 2

    Second 2020 Democratic Presidential Debate, Part 2 of 2

    The headline of the second part of the Second Democratic Presidential Debate on CNN last night is that Joe Biden did a lot better than he did in the First Democratic Presidential Debate on MSNBC last month. He was still a little inarticulate at times, and a little too prone to let the moderators interrupt him, but he was very impressive. And so was just about everyone else on stage in Detroit tonight.

    Second 2020 Democratic Presidential Debate, Part 1 of 2

    I thought the first part of the second 2020 Democratic Presidential Debate, on CNN last night, was much better than the first part of the first 2020 Democratic Presidential Debate on MSNBC last month. By "much better," I mean that almost every candidate on the stage expressed her or himself better than what we saw last month.
