Ted Cruz Claims Most Violent Felons Are Actually Democrats

On Monday, Senator Ted Cruz told a talk show host that the vast majority of violent criminals are Democrats. In the wake of the recent attack on Planned Parenthood by a man who apparently espoused right-wing conservative ideas, this is obviously an attempt by Ted Cruz to reinforce the idea with his base that this […]

Hillary Clinton Just Completely Exposed the GOP’s Constant Efforts to Disenfranchise Voters

The continued attempts by Republicans to rig elections are something I wish more people would care about. While I know it’s not exactly the most exciting of topics, and most people only seem to care about voting every couple of years or so, the process by which we vote is probably the most vital aspects to the […]

Hillary Clinton’s Skilled Move on Voting Rights Just Put Republicans in a No-Win Situation

While I know the opinion of Hillary Clinton by some on the left is rather divided, some people still seem to forget that she’s a very skilled and experienced politician. And while many liberals want to keep pushing the narrative that it’s Hillary Clinton vs. Bernie Sanders, the real battle is ultimately during the general […]

Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” Speech Is More than One Sentence Long

If you ask conservatives, the entirety of Dr. King’s legacy falls down to this passage: “I have a dream that little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” It is all they know, and they use […]

5 Ways Liberals Are Much More Constitutional Than Conservatives

I’ll admit, this article is a direct result of a back and forth debate I had this afternoon with a conservative. This debate centered around this person’s belief that conservatives are people who support “Constitutional values,” while liberals are constantly trying to undermine our Constitutionally protected rights. So I decided I’d list my top five […]

Supreme Court Gives Republicans Another Huge Victory in Their Attempt to Rig Elections

When it comes to voting, I live by a simple rule: Anyone who’s trying to make it more difficult for Americans to vote shouldn’t be trusted. There’s no logical reason why anyone would support making voting more difficult for Americans, other than doing so because they had some kind of ulterior motive behind it. And by that I obviously […]

Fox News’ Elisabeth Hasselbeck Advocates Unconstitutional Violation of Voting Rights

I’ll be honest, I’ve sometimes joked that people should have to be required to take a test before they can vote. Not because I want to disenfranchise anyone from voting, but because it’s a bit terrifying when you think about the fact that millions of people vote who have absolutely no idea who it is […]

Unconstitutional Republican Voter ID Law Slapped Down, Again

Tuesday, April 29th, saw the latest step in the dance between Republican legislatures and the Constitution as a judge ruled that Wisconsin’s voter ID law was unconstitutional. This means that the Badger State joins such states as Pennsylvania and Arkansas (just a few days before) in having their hand slapped for reaching too far in […]

Racial Rant Against Voting Rights on ‘The Daily Show’ Causes GOP Official to Resign

No matter how old I get, I’ll simply never understand racism.  Sure, I get disliking people.  I’ve met plenty of people throughout my life that I couldn’t stand.  But there’s a difference — I dislike people I’ve gotten to know or have had some kind of interaction with.  My dislike for them is based upon […]

The March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, Frozen in Carbonite

As most of us were told in school, fifty years ago a great man made a great speech in front of a bunch of people. And then Black people everywhere were saved and racism ended (or this is the impression we got). Many of us received some variation of that abbreviated lesson early on in […]
