Democrats this election have done a good job attracting a lot of big on the record public donors, but Republicans appear to have the big advantage when it comes to big secret donors. $794 Million for the GOP vs. $463 Million for the Dems. That’s a $331 Million advantage for the GOP.

I am working for a Democratic State Senatorial Candidate running against a GOP incumbent….and it looks like the incumbent will slide to an easy win despite the fact that he is opposed to what most of his constituents want and need.
For those who believe in American Exceptionalism and in America as being the world’s greatest democracy, how can that be the case when so many other countries have greater democratic participation than America?
Essentially the economy has been left alone to heal itself for almost 4 years. It is a testament to the American spirit and work ethic that we’ve managed to heal ourselves to the extent we have.

John Boehner has had one goal during his Speakership: Keep the Speaker’s Gavel. That’s it. So he did what he had to do to get past last week’s Immigration Crisis vote to avoid a vote of confidence on his Speakership.
The real issue here is that when you criticize white people in power for using their power to further oppress black people, you’re being racist. After all, aren’t you attacking only white people when you do so?
