Jon-Marcus, while I generally agree with you regarding the content of your post, the electoral college is made up of people who are involved in the party machines throughout the states. Not the House, although the House can elect a president under some special circumstance, although I'm too lazy to ...

Yes, high school history. In 1964 when Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act, the racists left the Democratic Party and joined the Dixiecrat Party, and later the Republican Party. Google "Dixiecrats" to learn that history. Yup! The Republican Party USED to be the progressives. They ceded th...

The Republican Part caters to racists PERIOD. That is their reason for being. Study history. Civil Rights Act. It's time that we stopped dancing around that reality. The only way to change this sad state of affairs is to raise awareness of the problem.

The party leadership of the GOP/DNC are a a totally separate band of clowns. I agree with you, actually. But I think this is the case of the tail wagging the dog. Now the GOP leaders have to pretend to believe in the Rand ideology in or else get primaried. Although Paul Ryan IS most certainly a Ran...

Sorry if I have offended anybody, but as a female, the Bible (this best seller) offends me. Yeah, it's ridiculous. I totally agree with you. The Cult of Ayn Rand (the modern Republican leadership) is steering America into a self-centered black hole. And of course, following only the principle of se...

Source the Wisconsin Gov Accountablity Board. I guess he thinks that if he says it, then it must be true :rolleyes: Typical. Like when the Repubs in the House decided that they could pass laws unilaterally without Senate and White House approval. The lack of understanding of basic civics is astonis...

This whole experience renews my faith in the marketplace of ideas. Wouldn't it be sweet irony if the effect of Citizens United just allowed radical right wingers to be elected more easily and therefore opens America's eyes to what happens when GOP philosophies take hold.

Thanks for keeping this updated. This story has the potential to shift states from red to blue for generations. Working-class moderate Republicans are voting Democratic, because their eyes are opening to the fact that GOP policies help only the Kings and Queens of Industry. This is going to change t...

Yeah, RA, it took awhile for me to get this, but I now realize that the modern day Republican Party is very simply what might as well be called the Objektivist Party that uses ignorant religious masses to keep them in power. The world makes a lot more sense now. I don't see any diff between her phil...

Paul Ryan Lived on Social Security

Paul Ryan lived on social security and went to college because of it. And now that he has his, he'll be damned if anyone else gets the same opportunity. If Ayn Rand's politics had been in place when he was a kid, he would have been sidelined to the dust bin of society as a weakling. He is a devoted ...
