Once Americans realize why the rich keep getting richer while they seem stuck in Po’-Town-USA, they may very well redirect their anger in a way that Tea Party, Inc. fears the most.

I truly think Californian Democratic “operative” David O Atkins needs to listen to this song:- If he’s a good boy, drinks his milk and goes to bed early and reads his history, he’ll find that song applied to all but two Democratic Presidents in the 20th Century and the Vice-Presidents […]

It wasn’t an easy ride to Tonopah on Saturday, especially not since NDOT had construction delays near Goldfield. So many of us from Vegas were already in a crabby mood when the NSDP Central Committee meeting got started. And many of the folks from Reno and the rurals were still […]

It’s ironic that this song was out around the time the Democratic Party imploded the first time. That was before most of this generation of whiners was about, so they wouldn’t remember. What’s even more oxymoronic is that some of these kidults are even getting elected to fairly important positions […]

And while the Republicans keep playing in “Tea Party Fantasyland”, a record 46.2 million Americans were hit by poverty last year. If there is ever a time to shift into overdrive to focus on job creation and put money in people’s pockets again, it’s now.

OK, it’s official. Elizabeth Warren is running for the Senate in Massachusetts. She’s challenging big, bad Scott Brown, who’s voted with the Democrats as much as he has his own side, and who used the Tea Party financing to get elected and then kicked them to the curb. True, he […]

ALEC, for those who are not familiar, is made up of many corporate CEO’s and legislators, and writes “template” or model legislation that is […]

Virginia Gubernatorial Candidate Bob McDonnell Holds Women's Rally

I usually try to get back to the Commonwealth once a year. I’ve lived for the past 30 years in the same part of England to which two other Virginia women, Pocahontas (my kinswoman) and Nancy Astor, were condemned; and so I feel that if I don’t wiggle my toes […]

Wolf in Sheep's Clothing

Americans Elect feels like a Koch-Brothers-type Tea Partying of the Left and Indies. Exploit the anger and frustration of the constituency and drive them together under a populist tent…that’s in fact owned by the wealthy.
