"The two parties have combined against us to nullify our power by a ‘gentleman's agreement' of non-recognition, no matter how we vote ... May God write us down as asses if ever again we are found putting our trust in either the Republican or the Democratic Parties." -- W.E.B. DuBois (1922)
The Crazies - Starring Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, The Tea Partiers, and the ill informed (clueless) American voter. The summary of the actual movie doesn't seem too far off the mark. Irrationality and plain lunacy have taken over American politics and is creeping into mainstream culture. Soon American voters will return the same people to power (The Republicans) who presided over the worst economic collapse since the Great Depression. In addition to having very short memories, Americans apparently don't have much in terms of brains or reasoning ability. What happened to common sense? I have absolutely no faith in the American voter. None. The crazies have definitely taken over. The ill-informed voter is the most dangerous voter of all. And now (thanks to the American education system) these folks exist in great numbers and will be making decisions for the rest of us through the ballot box. This essentially means that gridlock will become the norm. The U.S. is going to be paralyzed and held hostage by the nuts on the right for the foreseeable future. Meanwhile, when the Country needs bold political leadership and action the most...when the Country will need to do big bold things as it did under Lincoln, FDR, Eisenhower, & Kennedy, this time it won't be able to respond to the great challenges that it faces. Other Countries will take the lead role instead.... while the U.S. falls behind.
The Republican Media Page
A page focusing on the Republican Right Wing media and its war against President Barack Obama and any kind of Progressive policies to move the Country forward. Yes, the Republican Party IS led by Rush Limbaugh & Co. And yes, Rush Limbaugh & Co. DOES speak for Republicans...and they have been the spokesmen & the foot soldiers for the Republican Party for years. See why their hate speech & divisive politics are so dangerous to the Country and understand their current propaganda campaign aimed at undermining President Obama and weakening his government and the Country. Hoping that Obama fails in these uncertain times = hoping that the Country fails (in the minds of these bigoted Republicans...it's all about their own political gain).

Willard Romney When is he not lying about something? He lies, misleads and flipflops whenever it's convenient. I haven't noticed anything genuine about him yet. His comment about not being concerned about the very poor was revealing (one of the few moments when he slipped up and allowed himself to be honest about something). That statement took the cake. (The idea that he could become POTUS scares the Hell out of me)
