Begin at Systemic Roots to Reform Law Enforcement

By Dr. Robert McClure June 16, 2020 Our history over the past 240-plus years has been marked by inflection points — crossroads at which we collectively take a sharp turn in a different direction. The Emancipation Proclamation. Pearl Harbor. As a more recent example, around mid-2001 then-Secretary of Defense Donald [...]

In the next crisis, let’s use the scalpel instead of the chainsaw

By: Dr. Bob McClure June 02, 2020 In politics, perception is reality. But not in policy. Policy has real-life effects on real people — people we work with and interact with, our friends and family, and even people we never have the privilege to meet. Whether we are looking at [...]

Federalism – Our Best Friend Right Now

By: Dr. Bob McClure April 15, 2020 It is hard to imagine today. But in 1788, roughly one year after the founding of our republic, ratification of the U.S. Constitution was in real doubt. Many feared that the Constitution provided too much centralized power to the federal government, risking a [...]

Tom Brady joins the Tampa Bay Buccaneers — Here’s why you should consider Florida, too

On behalf of a grateful state, I would like to welcome the Greatest of All Time – Thomas Edward Patrick Brady Jr. – to the Sunshine State. As a lifelong “Anybody but the Pats” fan, I must admit that cheering for TB12 will take some adjusting to, but I’m hopeful that the [...]

Bernie Sanders STILL Excuses Totalitarian-Left Dictators, But Voters Won’t Excuse HIM.

By: Dr. Bob McClure The National Pulse March 2, 2020 Senator Bernie Sanders dismisses 70 years of persecution, misery, death, and political authoritarianism in the island nation of Cuba. I was reminded of the old trope which first appeared many years ago in an issue of The New Yorker: “Other than that, how [...]

By Robert McClure Monday, 10 February 2020 10:12 AM Last Monday night’s Iowa caucus debacle has taught us many things. The limits of bureaucratic processes and the ineffectiveness of government to solve just about anything are two. But above all else it has solidified an indisputable fact: there must be a better way to [...]

Bob McClure: Congratulations Patrick Mahomes … you have the right to remain silent

Before diving in, a bit of full disclosure is probably worthwhile. I had no vested interest in the outcome of Super Bowl LIV. As a longtime fan of the Dallas Cowboys, I counted it a blessing to not have to root against the Patriots yet again, and from all the [...]

Robert McClure: 2020 — an agenda for opportunity

We should debate enthusiastically and disagree vigorously. Welcome to January 2020 — the start of another 60-day Legislative Session and the commencement of what I fully expect to be the single wildest presidential election cycle of my lifetime (and I’ve been around for a lot of them). As policymakers from [...]
