More on “Socialism” and “Wealth Redistribution”

Last week, I put together a short video about the history of socialism in America. (In case you missed it, you can watch it here.) Whether you want to admit it or not, America is now, and has for some time been, a nation filled with socialism and wealth redistribution. It is how we pay […]


McCain-Palin: The Dark Side Of Politics

Everything has an opposite. Day and night. Happy and sad. Good and bad. Progression and regression. The list is endless. How does this apply to the current presidential election? It’s easy to say that Democrats and Republicans are opposites, but in truth, both parties share similar philosophies about governing. Ideologically they have some stark differences, […]


21st Century GOP

  Taking a cue from the King of Made-Up Reality, George W. Bush, the GOP and their candidates have unleashed an alternate reality that they want all Americans to believe.

Alaskan Republicans Love Their Crooked Senator (Or, Why The GOP Is Rotten To The Core)

Alaskan Republican voters must really hate America and the whole concept of honor, since they overwhelmingly supported indicted Senator Ted “Internet is a series of Tubes” Stevens, giving him 63% of the votes against a field of six other republican challengers in that states recent primary election. Really? Were none of those other six candidates […]


Reality Check: No Matter Who Wins The Election, We’re Still Screwed

(photo credit www.werescrewed08.com) Convention fever is lighting up the 2008 presidential elections here in the United States- the time for the major political parties to formally nominate their candidates for the general election, for the party faithful to gather and pat each other on the back while mending wounds inflicted during the primaries, and for the […]


The Taxation Blame Game

Some things are repeated so often that they become accepted as truth, despite the fact that there is little reality attached to them. In politics, one of these “truths” is that Democrats will always raise taxes and Republicans will always try to reduce taxes. But how true is this really? And maybe more importantly, what […]


Bush Plan Seeks To Keep US In Iraq Indefinitely, Tie Hands Of Next President

Today’s media has conditioned us to view “official” denials of events as proof that the story is true. Whether it is the latest celebrity gossip (so and so are breaking up- no they aren’t- oops, yes they did) or news from the government (The U.S. does not torture- wait, yes we do), whenever an “official […]


Majority of Americans Think President Should Meet With Enemy Leaders

A newly released Gallup Poll shows that a majority of Americans believe that presidents should talk to the leaders of “enemy” countries in an effort to solve problems. The poll shows citizens of all parties favor this sort of diplomacy over the staunch view held by John McCain who says that sitting down for meetings with […]


Clinton Calls It Quits, Joins McCain Ticket for ’08

In a surprise move, campaign officials for democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton are to announce April 1 that the New York Senator is withdrawing from the Democratic presidential primaries and is joining Republican presidential candidate John McCain’s ticket as his running mate. Political insiders and beltway pundits alike were surprised at the timing of the […]


Obama Can Do For America What Hillary And McCain Could Never Do

They say all politics is local, right? That may be true for school boards and city councils, and it might even hold for national congressional elections too. But when it comes to U.S. presidential elections, there’s nothing local about them, at least not for the rest of the world. Being the planets lone superpower means […]
