Republicans Plan to Economically Destroy American Way of Life

The Congressional Budget Office, CBO, is a non-partisan oversight committee whose purpose is to determine how much legislation would increase or decrease the federal budget over a ten-year period. The present Director of the CBO was appointed by Democrats in 2009; his tenure ends in January. Republicans, who will control both houses in January, want to replace him with someone who is more friendly towards Republican economic goals. They want

GOP Disappears by 2044

Commentary by James Turnage The Republican Party is primarily an organization of white, wealthy aging men. Its policies reflect their membership profile; protect the wealthy; support Christian beliefs; ignore the needs of blacks and Hispanics; ensure women remain under the control of men. With these facts in mind, the U.S. Census Bureau’s projections will see the disappearance of the GOP by 2044. Throughout the next three decades, the GOP will

Campaign Finance Reform Needed but Defeated

Not only does the average American not fully understand the contents of legislation proposed by Congressional members, members of the House and Senate do not either. But sometimes they do. A spending bill to keep the government running was recently passed by Congress. Hidden within the 1,603 pages was an inclusion which basically pronounces any campaign reform dead. Other than politicians, the remainder of working class Americans believe reform is

Rand Paul Displaying his Linguistic Skills

Rand Paul took the oath of office as the junior United States Senator from Kentucky in 2011. Before his seat was warm, he began campaigning for the 2016 presidential election. With 2015 just around the corner, he has acquired one of the most skillful campaign teams in recent history. What is most important for a politician is to say the right thing in front of the right crowd. Linguistic skills

Ted Cruz is Campaigning on the Wrong Issue

Is Ted Cruz Hispanic? It depends on your personal definition. First and foremost he is an employee of the Koch brothers working for the TEA Party, not the American people. And he certainly doesn’t represent Hispanics. If you ask about his bloodline, he is Cuban. Where was he born? Canada. He has picked the wrong fight as he is beginning his presidential campaign; he has selected the wrong issue. Speaking

America’s Need for a Tax Increase

Republicans and the TEA Party renounced their loyalty to our nation and gave their pledge to a lobbyist a couple of years ago. Grover Norquist convinced them to sign a document promising to vote against any form of tax increase. More value was given to one man than to the entire population of the United States. America needs tax increases to survive. From the time I was a boy, I

Democrats and Republicans 2016 Weakness

Whether you align yourself with either major party, or consider yourself an independent, one thing is certain; your choices are few. There is a simple reason why ‘none of the above’ might be your choice for president in 2016; both Democrats and Republicans are displaying weakness with their probable candidates. Although the polls claim that Hillary Clinton has a lock on the Democratic nomination, is that a good thing? Not

Immigration Reform good for the Economy

The criticism of President Obama’s executive action on the issue of immigration has little credence. It’s far too simple; Congress must take long overdue action. Bi-partisan immigration reform will nullify the President’s order. Recent studies prove that the Republicans are wrong about immigration, primarily the claim that 11 million additional legal immigrants would place a strain on the economy. Just the opposite is true; both states and the federal government

    Republican Racism

Republican Racism

Any of you who have the courage to read me know that I believe Republicans hate President Obama for two reasons. The first is because, unlike Republican Presidents since the 1980’s, he is intelligent. The secondary reason is because he is black. Republican Racism materializes more frequently than one might believe. Personal attacks are forbidden, even in the hateful world of politics. The Bush twins were not continually harassed by

This Republican Party Will Never Change

Reading about the GOP in 2014 makes one feel like he or she has taken a trip on a time machine and went back in history to the 20th century; particularly the 1950’s. After their second loss in 2012, Republican leadership claimed that they were aware the party had to change its attitude towards women and minorities. Instead, they have regressed; this Republican Party will never change. The GOP in
