You care about the economy, healthcare, terrorism, political corruption, the decline of the traditional family – not about the latest sexual idiocy of some athlete. Preserving America cares about the same things you do and about what we, average Americans, can do to fix the lingering – or even worsening – problems confronting this nation. It’s time for solid facts, expert guests, and straight talk.
“PORTER FOR CONGRESS’
Preserving America with Dr. Steven Porter
Throughout his life, Steven Porter has followed four streams of activity: education, political involvement, writing, and music.
He earned BS, MA, PhD, and PD degrees in fine arts and educational administration at leading university centers in the New York metropolitan area and enjoyed a career in teaching and educational administration lasting from 1967 to 2002. His work in fine arts, education and educational administration garnered both national and international attention.
His involvement in politics began in the 1960s. As a Graduate Fellow at Queens College of the City University of New York, he worked for New York Senator Robert Kennedy’s 1968 presidential campaign. The Senator was assassinated before the primary was held.
Dr. Porter has run as a Democratic candidate for congress twice, bringing him into close contact with many top Democrats, including Congressmen Maurice Hinchey, John Murtha, and Dennis Kucinich; Senators Hilary Clinton, John Kerry, and Bill Bradley; and Governors Mario Cuomo and Ed Rendell.
In 1970, Dr. Porter began writing and composing and has subsequently published over 150 works for the concert and theatrical stage as well as twenty books ranging in topics from education to theatre and from fiction to political science and philosophy.
Among his books are WISDOM’S PASSING: the decline of American public education, and AMERICA’S DYING DEMOCRACY, a political treatise on the current corruption of the U.S. political system. He has also published a philosophical treatise entitled THE ETHICS OF A DEMOCRACY.
Today, Dr. Porter continues to be active in local politics and continues to write and compose. He and his wife Rita, devote much of their marriage to the rescue and rehabilitation of abused and abandoned dogs.
