The Same Old Deal: The GOP’s Fight Against the Ghost of FDR

The Same Old Deal: The GOP’s Fight Against the Ghost of FDR

Like the Obama Administration, Liberal groups, and Secular Humanists, Franklin Delano Roosevelt believed that Americans deserved security in their lives, and worked tirelessly to provide the very things that today’s Republicans obstruct and deny for citizens. Republicans fought tooth and nail to stop Social Security for older citizens and it is no different today. Republicans propose the hideous idea that health care, unemployment protection, a living wage, and economic protection are privileges and not an inherent right for being an American citizen.

Fooled Again: The Gullible Left and TSA Body Scan Hysteria

Fooled Again: The Gullible Left and TSA Body Scan Hysteria

As the furor and outrage boils over TSA security measures, it is interesting how the left and the right are in agreement over perceived intrusion and invasion of privacy. It doesn’t matter that the controversy is a conservative fabrication, it just matters that there is a reason to rail on the Obama Administration.

Stone Age Mythology: the Republican War Against Stem Cells and Climate Change

Stone Age Mythology: the Republican War Against Stem Cells and Climate Change

There is a sickening trend in this country of conservative Christians decrying science as fraudulent, and it affects everything from addressing global climate change to stem cell research. It will have long-term effects on America, its standing in the world, and the health of millions of Americans. Whether or not it is because conservatives are too stupid to understand science, or too steeped in ancient Jewish mythology, it is harmful to every person in America.

Welfare or Warfare: Keeping Defense Contractors Rich While America Crumbles

Welfare or Warfare: Keeping Defense Contractors Rich While America Crumbles

Republicans want to take the country back to the 1950s, and they want to cut taxes for the wealthy claiming it is good for the economy even though the Bush-era tax cuts have not created jobs or stimulated the economy. Republicans also oppose cutting defense spending that drains the economy and takes valuable resources that could rebuild our crumbling infrastructure and create jobs.

American Pariah: Why the Founding Fathers Would Reject the GOP

American Pariah: Why the Founding Fathers Would Reject the GOP

Republican lawmakers, pundits, and Tea Party patriots all claim a desire to return to the Founding Father’s view of America and a strict constitutional interpretation of governance in America. The problem is that the Founders had a very different idea of America than these new constitutionalists, and they would reject the philosophy that the rich and industrialists should have the power to control the government.

Surprise!!! Banning Earmarks Will Create More Big Government

Surprise!!! Banning Earmarks Will Create More Big Government

If earmarks are banned, the money must be administered by a government agency, and it will tie up funding for important necessary projects and add to the bureaucracy in government. For teabaggers who hate the idea of government getting too big, this ban should be revolting, and will certainly mean more government intervention into local affairs.

Extortion: The United States Senate’s Newest Racket

Extortion: The United States Senate’s Newest Racket

American government has lost its designation as a representative democracy, and is turning into a racket where one man, or one party, dictates its will on the entire government, and apparently no-one is willing to stop the demise of democratic rule. There is much talk about compromise and bipartisanship from the Democrats, and the White House, but in the 21st Century American democracy, it is a fallacy and a joke.

John McCain’s Eternal War Against Gays At Home and American Soldiers Abroad

John McCain’s Eternal War Against Gays At Home and American Soldiers Abroad

John McCain is a war hero, and advocates permanent wars regardless the cost in lives and drain on the economy. He also knows that allowing gays to serve in the military is wrong, regardless that a majority of Americans, the Pentagon, and service members support repealing DADT. McCain also doesn’t want an end to the war in Afghanistan because he has gross memory loss regarding the Iraq war.

Republican Rep. Eric Cantor Brags About Committing Treason

Republican Rep. Eric Cantor Brags About Committing Treason

Eric Cantor (R-VA) will soon be the Majority Leader of the House, and he has joined the ranks of treasonous legislators, and taken it further by breaking a Federal law. Cantor engaged in talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu the same day that the U.S. Secretary of State met with Netanyahu, and vowed that he and his GOP colleagues would protect and defend Israeli interests against his own Government; the United States of America.

Lame Duck Session Presents the Perfect Opportunity for Democrats

Lame Duck Session Presents the Perfect Opportunity for Democrats

Now that Democrats in Congress are in a lame duck session, they have one more opportunity to take a stand for the American people before Republicans give America to the corporate world. Republicans have been upfront about their intentions to shut down the government and remove safety nets across the board so they can give tax cuts to the rich.

Republicans Turn Their Attention Back To Inciting War With Iran

Republicans Turn Their Attention Back To Inciting War With Iran

Republicans have begun pushing for a war with Iran, and are using Israel’s defense and Iran’s nuclear program as a reason to engage in another war against another Islamic nation. The Republican’s drumbeat for war is a continuation of the George W. Bush “Crusade” that led America into a prolonged, costly war with Iraq.

Like All Abusers Republicans Blame Their Victims

Like All Abusers Republicans Blame Their Victims

Republicans promise to shut down the government whether Obama follows their orders or not because they want to limit him to one term and they are very open about that goal. Eric Cantor blaming President Obama for a Republican proposed government shutdown shows that Republicans are so steeped in the criminal mindset that they are assigning blame to a victim prior to the rape.

Republicans Plan to Pay For Tax Cuts With Unemployment Benefits

Republicans Plan to Pay For Tax Cuts With Unemployment Benefits

Republicans belie their belief in fiscal responsibility when they insist on giving unfunded tax cuts to the wealthy. Enter the poor, unemployed, and working-class Americans. Republicans and teabags label unemployment benefits an entitlement just like they call Social Security and Medicare welfare. Their goal is to privatize Social programs so Wall Street can prosper, and take away unemployment benefits to help pay for tax cuts for the wealthy.

Democrats Arrogantly Overestimated the Intelligence of the American Voter

Democrats Arrogantly Overestimated the Intelligence of the American Voter

The loss of the House of Representatives by Democrats this election will be analyzed to death, and there is certainly enough blame to go around regardless which group is critiqued. A great portion of the blame can be attributed to corporate infusion of cash to Republican and Tea Party candidates. However, Democrats and President Obama must accept that they too, own their fair share of blame for overestimating the intelligence of the American voter.

When Did the Mainstream Media Start Working for the Conservatives?

When Did the Mainstream Media Start Working for the Conservatives?

Americans go to the polls today in spite of main stream media reports that Republicans and Tea Party candidates swept every race. Usually it is only Fox News that tells their audience what the results of elections will be in advance of an election, but in this election cycle, real journalists are jumping on the Republican bandwagon in a big way.

Dear America, Why Are We Voting Against Our Own Self Interests?

Dear America, Why Are We Voting Against Our Own Self Interests?

As we head to the polls tomorrow, ignorant, confused citizens are intending to vote against their own self-interests. Knowing Republicans have done nothing, and campaign on doing nothing for the next two years; why are people willing to vote for them? Republicans promise to help corporations by getting rid of regulations, but that only helps the wealthy.
