Whenever a leader stands up to the Washington Cartel, they respond with venom and personal attacks.

Stop the Washington Cartel Whenever a leader stands up to the Washington Cartel, they respond with venom and personal attacks. “John Boehner Calls Ted Cruz A ‘Jackass’ At Fundraiser” “Cruz roundup: No Obamacare, trade showdown, middle finger from Boehner” Ted Cruz is urging Republican leadership to actually honor the commitments they have made to the People. In the Cartel’s view, …

Story
Tagline
Conservative libertarian blogger, editor and journalist.
Introduction
Blogger, columnist, new media entrepreneur. Oh, also: a soccer, cycling, baseball and kickboxing fan. Trying to make a difference.

----------------------------------------

11 facts about me:

1) My strength is I'm obsessive. This means I can work hard - very hard. The downside? I'm obsessive.

2) I believe in working hard and playing hard, but never seem to get around to part II.

3) Born and raised in the Netherlands, I'm happily living in Izmir, or as I prefer to call it: heaven on earth.

4) I absolutely love the political game. And yes, it is a game. Years ago, I actually got worked up about it, but nowadays, I see every move, every decision, every plan as a strategic move. Looking at politics that way has only increased my love for it (and for my job).

5) Dogs are awesome. I miss mine tremendously.

6) I'm a family man, but don't need my family around me all the time. It's a contradiction in terms, but there you have it: an independent family guy.

7) I carry a book around me everywhere I go.

8) Another one of my companions is my notebook: I write down ideas when I have them, afraid to forget them when I have 'time' for them.

9) I hate it when people say they "can't" do something. What do you mean, you "can't?" You're limiting yourself! Get off your butt and start taking massive action.

10) I'm in love with my iPad. 

11) Married to the love of my life I always feel I don't spend enough time with her. This creates a perpetual feeling of guilt.
