How Corrupt Is Your State?

Why We're Living in the Age of Fear


Frank Bruni

One of our two major political parties is hostage to an extreme subgroup that won't brook compromise, values theatrical protests over actual governing and is adolescent in its ideological vanity.

...Republicans ...have become the party of brinkmanship, the party of imminent credit defaults, the party of threatened shutdowns, the party that won't pass a proper transportation bill, the party that is suddenly demonizing the Export-Import Bank, the party of "no," the party of ire, the party that casts even someone as unquestionably conservative as John Boehner in the role of apostate, simply because he knows the difference between fights that can be won and those that can't, between standing on principle and shooting yourself in the foot.

With Call to Jail Hillary Clinton, Trump's GOP Demands the Criminalization of Politics

George Will Is The Canary In American Democracy's Coal Mine - The Declaration of Independence proclaims that governments derive "their just powers from the consent of the governed." In his latest column, conservative writer George Will boldly rejects this founding principle.

It Isn't Just Donald Trump. The Bush Campaign Plotted to Reject Election Results in 2000 - ... the George W. Bush campaign was planning to challenge the results of the 2000 vote if he lost the electoral vote, but won the popular vote. His campaign hoped to spark a national movement to pressure members of the Electoral College in states where the popular vote went for Al Gore to ignore that and instead vote in line with the national popular vote - thus making Bush president. In the end, the reverse happened. Bush won the Electoral College vote while losing the popular vote. [But Democrat Gore DIDN'T sue]

Thanks, Trump! Now all the Republican lies are exposed - A funny thing has happened on the way to the election - the lies Republicans have been getting away with for years are finally being exposed. Donald Trump's extreme, outrageous, and conspiracy-tainted lies are all just longstanding Republican lies, but exaggerated to such a ridiculous degree, he's helping discredit them.
