Political Heat began in 2009 following the inauguration of President Barack Obama, under the direction of Chris Walker. Having previously written for his college newspaper, Chris sought to continue his passion for writing political opinion in a forum that could reach a mass audience.
Political Heat has a simple goal in mind: to explain why liberalism is a good ideological choice for this country. Its basis in reason as well as its empathy towards the downtrodden, liberalism is oftentimes mistakenly derided by conservatives as an ideology of elitism.
Hoping to help eliminate that errant image, Chris has defended liberalism since 2005, writing in whatever capacity he was allowed. Within Political Heat, Chris has written more than 700 posts over four years, amassing over 100,000 page views in that time.
With a continued focus on political commentary, Political Heat continues to try and explain matters pertaining to the people of this state and country in terms of liberalism's promise.
