Republican Representative Steve King Admits That Republicans Are Just ‘Hanging On’ Until A New President Is Elected

Now it’s clear. Republicans are holding back on passing bills to help the country until a new President is elected. It’s all about holding the general welfare of the nation hostage. Republican Steve King of Iowa has admitted as much in a new statement made in the wake of President Obama introducing the American Jobs Act.

Republican Governor and presidential candidate Rick Perry is catching some heat for recent televised debate comments over his apparent big-brother-ish assault on American citizens’ free will while also going against the mantra of sexual anti-recognition (or the idea that young people in this country do not have sex).

Michele Bachmann: Pro-Choice?

The fact is, there is not much difference in these cases. Either way, government is forcing a certain group of people to do something that they may not want to do. This exchange between the candidates is a fantastic example of the hypocrisy of the right wing. You can’t complain about government taking away choice, and then turn around and advocate taking away someone’s choice. But that’s exactly what Republicans want to do.

The GOP Cares More About Rebuilding Iraq Than Rebuilding America

Republicans have no sympathy whatsoever for those affected by these disasters. They simply refuse to approve the funding necessary to rebuild America unless spending cuts are made to offset it. But apparently, they were perfectly willing to approve $50 billion of funding to rebuild Iraq, and they didn’t call for a single dollar in cuts to offset it.

GOP State Legislator Says Homosexuality Is More Dangerous Than Terrorism

Reflections and Perspectives of September 11th

Personally, the most memorable moment of September 11th was being jarred out of my sleep by the constant ringing of my old, cellular, flip phone and hearing my cousin screaming at me hysterically telling me to turn on my television to CNN, because the country was being attacked.

It’s probably not a good idea to run a campaign ad featuring the tragedy of the September 11th terrorist attacks, depicting yourself as some kind of savior so you can gain something politically. But that is exactly what Republican Presidential Candidate Herman Cain did.
