If ignorance is truly bliss then America should be the happiest country on the planet. The one-time land of the free and home of the brave has morphed into the land of the ignorant and home of the misinformed. America today is a nation of fools, brain-dead lemmings lulled into massive ignorance fueled by Internet-based […]

Republicans in the U.S. Congress are under a “reign of terror” imposed by the party’s conservative wing that also has pushed presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney to the right, President Barack Obama’s senior campaign strategist said on Sunday.

The GOP base: Stupid is as stupid does

The GOP base: Stupid is as stupid does

In too many ways, the Republican Party deserves Rick Santorum. He’s tailor-made for the right-wing fanatics, Bible-thumpers and racists that dominate the party of the elephant. “As long as the GOP chooses to let the extreme right dominate its base it is doomed to find political failures like Rick Santorum,” longtime political activist Samuel Glasden […]

Lies, damn lies and GOP debates

Lies, damn lies and GOP debates

  Twenty Republican presidential debates later, the head-scratching claims kept coming. Did Mitt Romney really cut taxes as Massachusetts governor, as he asserted yet again?
