Forget that a few “Democratic Socialists” have achieved victory in some fringe districts… forget that they and the Women’s March/ Action Together/ Indivisible/ Antifa crowd are trying to drag their party into embracing the word “Socialist” and all that comes with it (think Venezuela)… 

Rasmussen Reports issued polling today that shows that to be a bad plan… a very bad plan:

“When it comes to political labels, moderate and conservative are best for candidates, socialist the worst."

Here are two reformers from different parties and different backgrounds.  In launching this website, we would like you to consider what they have to say.

 

Ben Sasse is the 46-year-old United States Senator from Nebraska.  He’s a conservative Republican, born and raised in Nebraska, who earned a doctorate in American History from Yale University.  He taught at the University of Texas, served as Assistant Secretary of U.S. Department of Health & Human Services, and served as President of Midland University in Nebraska. 

Senator Sasse is the author of two books:  “The Vanishing American Adult” (2017) and “Them: Why We Hate Each Other – and How to Heal” (2018).  He is the co-author of “Here We Stand! A Call from Confessing Evangelicals for a Modern Reformation”. 

Sasse is married with three children, who are being homeschooled.  He is an elder in the United Reformed Churches of North America and served on the board of trustees for Westminster Seminary in California.

He was elected to the United States Senate in 2014, defeating Democrat David Domina by a margin of 65% to 31%.

Elizabeth Warren is the 69-year-old United States Senator from Massachusetts.  She is a progressive Democrat, born and raised in Oklahoma.  After earning a Bachelor of Science in Speech Pathology, she got a law degree from Rutgers University in New Jersey, where she lived for a time with her first husband (the couple had two children but divorced in 1978).  Senator Warren was a professor of law at the University of Texas School of Law, the University of Pennsylvania Law School, and Harvard Law School. 

Senator Warren is the author of ten books, including “The Fragile Middle Class: Americans in Debt” (2001), “The Two-Income Trap: Why Middle-Class Parents are Going Broke” (2004), “This Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America's Middle Class” (2017).  She was the advocate whose efforts directly led to the creation of the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.

She re-married but has kept her first husband’s last name.  In addition to her two daughters, Senator Warren has several grandchildren. 

She was elected to the United States Senate in 2012, defeating Republican Scott Brown by a margin of 54% to 46%.

What Is This Site About?

The Garden State Hub is a private social network for New Jersey voters that will facilitate collaboration and mobilization for users and provide news and information relevant to citizen activists for all members. Here you can request to start a group which you can use to connect with your members in an environment not controlled by Silicon Valley elites who favor only one political perspective and, if you are an individual member, you can find groups to join or meet activists in your area. In addition to member groups, the site itself will feature LOCAL groups for all citizen activists in your area, we will have groups for the three major regions of New Jersey (North, Central, and South), for the Congressional Districts, and for every County. These groups will be set up as we grow our members. 

We welcome a wide range of activists from the center-right to libertarians who wish to have their own groups on this site. Our forums will offer a place for civil discussion and an exchange of ideas. Through your Blogs, which you can choose to make public or not, we offer you a platform to reach out the greater world. You can also invite people to join your group, if you create one. 

This is a private social network. We are not an organization or entity ourselves. simply a hub for individuals and organizations from the center-right to libertarian perspective who can use it to mobilize for citizen activism. 

The progressive left has plenty or resources and space devoted to their activism. We who are not part of the hard left need and deserve our own space to gather, connect, and mobilize. Using this platform you can find opportunities for activism or promote your own cause, issue, campaign, or organization.

A few things about me you might not know yet

I think most if not all of you already know me through my teaching in school and my drawing classes for kids in the Leisure Time Club. I am really happy to gather all of you here, in my blog. I started it back in 2012, and since then it became such a great comfy place where we can discuss all kinds of things about our kids. But back then when I only started everything, I was so incredibly unsure whether it will ever work out. Can you imagine? :-) I thought, what if nobody wants to try this way of communication, what if nobody cares? Seriously, I was full of doubts. And I remember how I got my first “Hi!” here, and what relief I felt:-) So, what I was saying. Don’t be afraid of starting new things, experimenting and changing your life. This kind of decisions is what actually moves the world forward.

How parents can help their kids read

Many parents ask me how do I make my kids read. Well, actually, I don't. They just read. Ellen, she has just turned 11 this month, likes to read chick-novels for teenagers. Honestly, I think that this kind of books are a bit too early for her age, but the thing is, she likes it. And that is the main point: if a kid likes what they read, they will keep on reading. There is no reason to push them cover "all the necessasary books a 5/7/10 y.o. kid might read at his age." Honestly, just let them read whatever they want. Let it be a book of comics or Harry Potter novel, at this age it is not so important. (read more)
