For the last six years, I have published Consent of the Governed(CotG), an online newsletter that now reaches over 31,000 unique email subscribers. The newsletter is published at least once per month and more often as the political fires heat up. Last year, 18 issues went out.
CotG is a point-of-view publication. It addresses issues a broad array of issues, from state and local to national and international, depending on what is happening in the world. CotG is free and you can subscribe to it by signing up at this website. You must make a request to receive CotG with a valid email address or you cannot subscribe. I do this so that only those people who want it, get it.
The genesis of CotG came from writing a weekly newspaper column for roughly twelve years. As time demands became greater, I stopped writing the column in December of 2009 to focus more on CotG, my tv-radio show and a number of charity events I organize.
The political fires, however, are burning white hot and issues are emerging and evolving daily, in a more rapid pace than ever before. I decided last summer to kick off this information and point-of-view website to be able to respond more quickly to issues and events as they happen. I will be updating information on this website multiple times throughout each day.
This website should complement the online newsletter and hopefully, between the two, provide you with information and opinion that prompts you to do your own discovery.
I look forward to your suggestions, criticisms and interaction. I am not opening the “comments” section on every topic as I dimply do not have time to respond to all inquiries, but I will engage debate on the days that time allows.
Thank you for visiting the website and I hope you find the information and opinion here useful.
