RESEARCH

Research: including polls, the history of Republican Tea Party legislation, the rise of Christian fundamentalism, hate speech,  and issues. This research page is a work in progress. Suggestions for posts or categories are welcome in the comments.

POLLS:

LEGISLATION:

On March 14 we first published a list of thirty pieces of Republican legislation “that Republicans are using to destroy America.” That list was updated on March 17 with several new items and categories, and again on June 11. On July 14 we presented a completely updated list, the most important addition to which is a section on Tentherism, “The War on the Federal Government.” Our newest additions are sections on “The War on Jobs” and “The War on Democracy.” One thing is certain: the list will only grow longer. There is also a special surprise category at the end.

It has become impossible, due to the sheer volume of nihilistic Republican and Tea Party legislation, to keep this list to a reasonable length or to limit either categories or items. Wherever possible, links have been provided to the actual legislation under discussion. It has become difficult, again due to the volume of this legislation, to update the status of these various bills and reader feedback in this regard is appreciated. Every attempt will be made to keep the list current and accurate.

Again, it is important to note up front that long as this list is, it is not a complete list of questionable Republican/Tea Party legislation; 26 states are under Republican control as of this compilation and that is a lot of crazy material to cover.
