The Truth Is, Republicans Are Slowly Killing Their Own Party

As liberals or progressives, we have always dreamed of a day when the Republican Party would dismantle, leading the way for our collective voices to be heard. A day when we would have a chance to implement the policies that we know will grow the middle class, and help everyone achieve success. That day has […]

43% Of Republicans Say They Could Support A Military Overthrow Of The United States Government

Remember the freakout earlier this summer over the Jade Helm military training operation? Remember how a number of politicians, all Republicans, pandered to the paranoid fringe that believed President Obama was finally going to unleash the United Nations forces on the Christian gun owners of America and send them to FEMA concentration camps? Right-wing conspiracy […]

Here Are The Four Reasons Why Republicans Oppose The Iran Nuclear Deal

Republicans predictably greeted the Iran nuclear deal with angry howls about how the treaty was “appeasement,” while Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the deal a “mistake of historic proportions” and warned that Iran would continue to seek the destruction of Israel. The opposition to the Iran nuclear deal isn’t a position that was reached after […]

Dear Conservatives: There are Millions of Christian Liberals and We’re A Lot More Like Jesus Than You

There’s a myth among many conservatives that liberals are “godless heathens.” Many of the Republicans I encounter here in Texas really see Democrats and liberals as the “anti-Christian” party, mostly because that’s what they’ve been told by the GOP and conservative talking heads. Of course, that’s not true at all. Granted, there are many non-Christian liberals, but […]

Republicans Are Really Going To Hate Pope Francis’ Climate Change Encyclical

The Catholic Church and I don’t see eye to eye on the majority of issues most of the time. Their stance on reproductive rights and their shameful legacy of protecting predatory priests were major contributors to the reason I walked away from them nearly 15 years ago. While the Vatican has denied science when it […]

Ted Cruz Voted Against Sandy Relief, But Now Demands Federal Aid After Texas Floods (VIDEO)

There’s a bit of good news for Texas as it looks like the torrential rains and subsequent flooding may hopefully be coming to an end soon. The bad news is that you still have Ted Cruz and John Cornyn as your senators. Don’t get me wrong, the rest of the country doesn’t mind sending you […]

5 Reasons Why Poor People Vote For Republicans

Have you ever wondered why so many poor people vote for Republicans, even though Republicans do very little to help them?

Over last few […]

10 Gifts Santa Really Needs to Bring Republicans This Christmas

Well, it’s Christmas and in the spirit of the holiday I thought I would poke a little fun at our right-wing counterparts by listing the 10 gifts I think Santa should have brought Republicans this holiday. And for anyone who might be looking for that last-minute, or even late, gift to give a Republican friend […]

Reality Check for Democrats: Republicans Sell Lies Better Than You Tell the Truth

In the days after every election, I avoid the political media as much as possible. During this time all these “experts” will go back and forth trying to overcomplicate the “whys and why nots” of what happened, just like they have this election. Even though the truth is glaringly obvious: Republicans sell lies better than Democrats […]

I’m Sick of Republicans Lying About the Healthcare System that Saved My Life

“Government healthcare programs everywhere in the world do three things. They promise you the world. They say, oh we’re going to cover everything. Then what they do is they run out of money and they underpay hospitals, doctors, and guess what happens? They don’t want to take care of you. There’s fewer of them, just […]
