The purpose of The Elephant in the Corner is to provide strong, opinionated political commentary to people from all walks of life. Writing at least one new post each week, I hope to teach people about the issues affecting them every day. I always strive to rise above partisan politics and look at each issue individually. Strict party loyalty can be dangerous, especially if you don’t know what you’re voting for. As such, examining issues from a moderate position, with a willingness to compromise, is the best and only way for our great nation to continue to thrive.
