A lasting legacy

Blog Entry #1
By Christine Todd Whitman
August 18, 2016

The Republican Party can arguably be said to have done the greatest service to the nation when it nominated Abraham Lincoln. Now, however, it might be accused of having done the greatest disservice in having nominated Donald Trump. Far from trying to keep the nation together, Trump is doing everything he can to undermine the legitimacy of our electoral system and, in the process, giving license to fringe organizations to take matters into their own hands. Our founding fathers said that if democracy fails, it will be from within, and I fear we risk seeing that unfold in our day. Whatever happens on election day, we face the high likelihood of a nation divided. True conservatives value the Constitution and our electoral process – how we handle that division will determine our lasting legacy.

By Michael Gareth Johnson
April 20, 2016

Last summer, President Barack Obama introduced his Clean Power Plan with a goal of cutting carbon emissions by 32 percent (below 2005 levels) by 2030. Gov. Andrew Cuomo has proposed an even more ambitious plan of 50 percent renewable levels by 2030.
