I have always had a passion for United States politics both Republican and Democrat. I can answer questions relating the history of both politial parties, party politics and issues that both parties have historically championed. In addition, I am a proud member of the Progressive Democrats of America. I have a strong understanding of liberal values and liberal domestic public policy.
I have worked for major liberal candidates both on the national and state level especially in Pennsylvania. I am a member of the Progressive Democrats of America, that represents the left wing of the Democratic Party. There was a time in my life when I was a liberal Republican and was active in party politics. That was especially true in 1976 and 1978. I was President Ford's Chairman at the University of Ok and met both the President and his son Jack. In 1978, I was active in the Senator Edward Brooke campaign. After 1980, I became less involved as the Republican Party moved ever more to the right. Since 1987, I became active in Democratic politics in Philadelphia. I have a passion for party politics and have an extensive library on American politics.
I attended the University of Oklahoma and transferred to the University of Mass in Boston and graduated with a BA in history in 1979. I earned academic honors in 1978. I have attended Graduate School at the University of Ct and OK in International Relations. I have always had a strong interest in academics. I have attended several vocational technical schools as well, earning academic honors. I was trained to be an Intelligence Analyst in the US Army from1979-83.
