North State Fire Season

July 16, 2017

Educated citizens make for a smart, thriving community. Public broadcasting is a crucial part of that education. Thanks to KIXE and Lorraine Dechter for keeping the North State informed with local programs like this.


Importance of Education

July 12, 2017

Democracy can’t succeed without educated citizens. Thomas Jefferson is rolling over in his grave at these research results. We need to encourage–and make affordable–education for all Americans. Not just college. But vocational training. Basic civics.


Bound and Gagged

Political parties shouldn’t matter. Together we are Americans.


Modoc County Uses ACA

July 6, 2018

Conservative Modoc County, in far Northern California, supports and is being helped by the Affordable Care Act. Yet Northern California Congressman Doug LaMalfa voted against it. Thus costing 23 million Americans their healthcare; thousands of them in far Northern California. He just doesn’t get it.

Congressman LaMalfa hid from reporters and would not defend his position for this news report for NPR.

On environmental issues, Ronald Reagan said, “Preservation of our environment is not a liberal or conservative challenge, its common sense.” In that same spirit, I say the same is true for healthcare. I say, allowing people to see a doctor is also just common sense. Congressman LaMalfa doesn’t have this common sense. He just doesn’t get it.

Yes, there are problems with the Affordable Care Act. We need to fix them. The first fix needs to be replacing an out of touch congressman who is more interested in backing his political party than he is in actually exercising common sense.


Freedom of the Press

July 3, 2017

“It’s not helpful to call the press the enemy of the people,” said Republican Senator Ben Sasse. He’s right. We need to go back to fundamentals and teach our congress the basics of how freedom of speech works.


No Labels

June 24, 2017

Democrats and Republicans need to start behaving like adults. They need to work together.


Centrist Project

June 21, 2017

We need to fix our broken two party political system. The Centrist Project is “building a movement to take on the entrenched establishments of both political parties.”


CA1 Map

Concerned voters from Chico to Redding, Yreka to Grass Valley, are welcome to join Independent Like The North State. Help bring common sense back to Congress.
