Inspired by Bernie: Let Those Who Can, Run in November ’16

November 2012. There before me, an empty space on the election ballot. Not one progressive had dared oppose the incumbent.  His tenure in office was marred by admitted “inappropriate and regrettable” behavior, yet he ran unchallenged. The blinking cursor thumbed its nose at me, keenly aware that whatever name I wrote in—be it “Johnny Appleseed” […]

The War Between Bernie Sanders And Hillary Clinton Supporters Must Stop

I have been writing for Forward Progressives for almost three years now. In that time, one thing that has jumped out at me most is how many people are so bound by ideology to their pet cause or favorite candidate, that they are incapable of even considering or tolerating beliefs other than their own. All over Facebook, […]

Ben Carson Wants To Fight ISIS By Putting American Troops On The Canadian Border

Just a few weeks ago, Dr. Ben Carson was flying high in the Republican polls. Before a series of foreign policy blunders, he was enjoying his moment in the spotlight and right-wing conservatives pointed to his brief popularity as proof that the GOP had appeal to minority voters. Primary voters initially overlooked absurd proposals like […]

Here’s How Mitt Romney Could Be The Republican Nominee Again In 2016

Mitt Romney as the GOP’s nominee in 2016 may seem surprising, considering the fact that Donald Trump and Ted Cruz are the top two candidates currently in the primary race.

Anti-Abortion Activist Admits Planned Parenthood Videos Were Designed To Destroy Organization

It shouldn’t come as any surprise to us that the videos created by the Center for Medical Progress were intended to destroy Planned Parenthood. After the dubious and heavily-edited footage was released, conservatives pounced on these videos as part of their campaign to defund Planned Parenthood. Republicans in Congress are advancing a bill to end […]

Marco Rubio: The United States is Governed by God, Not the Constitution (Video)

While most of the attention this election cycle has been given to presidential candidates Donald Trump and Ben Carson, several others such as Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio have slowly been inching their way up the polls, solidifying themselves as viable Republican candidates. Well, one of those candidates, Rubio, recently professed his belief that the […]

Ted Cruz Gets Called Out On CNN For His Hypocrisy On Syrian Immigrants

One of the biggest opponents of immigration, especially when it comes to Syrian refugees, has been GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz. Along with other conservative pundits and politicians, he has made a big deal out of the possibility that Islamic terrorists could somehow slip through the screening and launch attacks here in the United States. […]

Unlike Marco Rubio, Bernie Sanders Actually Shows Up To Work

Senator Marco Rubio has taken heat, even from his own party, for missing a lot of Senate votes while he has been campaigning. Last week during the CNBC Republican debates, he was slammed by Jeb Bush for not showing up to work. Now Marco Rubio is also catching flack from presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders, […]

Hello, I’m Pastor Pillow! Welcome to the confectionary-free confines of Cubic Zirconium Cathedral Ministries on this great and terrible day that worshipers of Satan, that False Light & Fallen One, that Lascivious Leader of Political Progressives, call Halloween!

Serial Vote-Misser Marco Rubio Wants To Crack Down On People Who Don’t Do Their Jobs

Marco Rubio is currently sitting around 3rd place in Republican primary polls, well behind front-runners Donald Trump and Dr. Ben Carson. Considering how both Carson and Trump have zero government experience, the fact that Marco Rubio as a member of the Senate can’t quite make it to double digits in the polls says a lot […]
