This controversial political film from directors Dinesh D’Souza and John Sullivan will invoke vastly different reactions from audience members. Many will find the film a patriotic, yet underreported, story on how our nation has prospered from our early years due to innovation, entrepreneurship, and capitalism--emerging as not only the wealthiest nation on the planet, but also the most generous. Just as many other viewers will leave the theaters feeling jilted by a political infomercial disguised as a documentary. Lastly, some moviegoers may be introduced to several political hot-button issues for the first time, and left reflecting on D’Souza’s historical data points on subjects such as relations with Mexico and Native Americans, slavery, imperialism, and capitalism. Regardless of a person’s position or thoughts on these subjects, this film accomplishes one significant feat—it empowers people to formulate one’s beliefs and positions, squaring the movie’s interpretation with their own life experiences.

The June 26th issue of the Explorer included a Thelma Grimes editorial that was both factually inaccurate and rhetorically overheated. It took to task 35 State Senators and Representatives (all Republican) while singling out by name two of the three who represent LD11 (Rep Kwasman and me). Our crime was to oppose the implementation of ObamaCare via an expansion of Medicaid and to protest the manner in which it was done.
