Trump is the Living Embodiment of Plato’s ‘Republic’

Share

In Plato’s most famous novel “Republic”, he used the technique of magnifying small problems to reveal their true nature. Trump IS that magnification of the GOP.

How Does One Support Hillary without rewarding DNC misbehavior?

Share

The Democratic Party took sides in the race from Day One and actively harmed the Sanders campaign. Now they want Sanders’ endorsement and the votes of his supporters offering NOTHING in return but threats & ridicule.

“If *I* had been in that (latest mass shooting location), *I* could have taken that guy out!” You heard them too I’ll bet. Those chest-beating low-brow far Right gun nuts telling us how if THEY had been there with THEIR pistol/Glock/etc when all those people were being shot, THEY could have taken out the mass shooter […]

Is Hillary a Closet Republican? Her record would suggest so.

Share

It’s a case I’ve been making since she ran against Obama in 2008: Hillary has this unfathomable, almost desperate, need to seek the approval of Republicans. Her first instinct on every issue is to align with Conservatives… especially on issues of National Defense… only to reverse course later when disapproval from Democrats proves inconvenient. Honestly, I believe […]

Why a Sanders Victory is More Likely than Hillary

Share

All explanations for an inevitable Clinton victory in November hinge on how BAD Donald Trump will do, NOT how much better of a candidate she is.

Claims Hillary Has Better Chance of Winning Not Only False, but now moot amid GOP chaos

Share

For months now, many Clinton supporters have been citing Hillary’s chances of defeating Trump in the General election in November as their reason for voting for her. They just don’t believe that an admitted “Democratic Socialist” can win the election. As far as I’m aware, there has never been an official poll taken of Clinton supporters […]

Republicans Are Right. Delay nomination of Scalia’s successor

Share

I can’t remember the last time I said this and may never say it again, so listen up: REPUBLICANS ARE RIGHT. We should delay replacing Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia until after the election. I know how heretical that may sound, but bear with me for a moment while I explain and you may even agree. The magnitude […]

Win or Lose, Trump is Now the Face of GOP

Share

They can deny it all they want, but even if Trump loses the GOP nomination, he and his offensive, questionable & even delusional world view now represents the modern Republican Party.

GOP’s Slide Toward Fascism Has Become Impossible To Ignore

Share

When Donald Trump’s call to bar Muslim’s entry into the U.S. received widespread condemnation, his GOP competitors whom have failed to gain any traction against him jumped on the Condemnation Bandwagon. But everyone seems to forget what spurred Trump’s first foray into politics: questioning the birthplace of the nation’s first African American president and suggesting he was a “secret Muslim”.

When Do We Stop Listening to Conservatives on How to Fight Terrorism?

Share

We’ve been following the same policies of the same people who created this mess for 14 years and it’s not getting better. When do we finally say “enough is enough” and start thinking outside-the-box on ways to bring this war to an end?
