    An evil fog has swept into the Republican Party, leaving a division of the people like we have ever seen. The battle between good and evil will be a tough row to hoe in the coming years. The master plan of lies, deception and unethical actions is no stranger to us like John Nichols is no stranger, being on the Ed Schultz program from time to time, I feel as if I am his friend although I have never met him. I look forward to the Judicial forum as they have, and will play a very important role in many decisions that will control many aspects of our lives, and I will listen carefully to their talk and the reactions of the people.
