For God and Country: The Christian Case for Trump – Ralph Reed
Ralph Reed is one of the founders of the Christian Coalition as well as the founder and chairman of the Faith and Freedom Coalition. I chose to read this book because of its title and author.
My Credo – Universal Health Care
Universal healthcare is a controversial issue in the 2020 presidential election. The rhetoric has been mostly extreme on both the left and right sides of the political spectrum.
During President Trump’s press conference earlier today, I heard him badly mispronounce vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris’ name. I am wondering if any of his supporters can tell me whether he is suffering some cognitive impairment or if he was just being hateful and misogynistic.

Factfulness – Hans Rosling
The entire focus of this book is on demonstrating through publicly available statistical data that the condition of the world is much better than people think; further, that it is continuing to improve.
