constitution - obsolete

Kesmarn’s brilliant article, Please, tear that price tag off!, impresses the powerful image of our democracy and citizenry as a 500 pound patient, too bloated to help itself or accomplish even the most minor tasks required for its subsistence and survival.

Two years ago, the American people delivered their mandate. They chose an intelligent, intellectual, well-spoken and inspirational African American man to lead their country as President of the United States. Not only did they merely elect him and his party, they did so resoundingly, and in such a way that […]

Democrats have wasted an historic moment.  A mandate that is given by the people once every couple of generations.  The people spoke and said bring change and restore our country.  Democrats of course talked a good game saying we will work for the people and against the plutocracy wrought by […]

A Pledge to America

At great risk to their personal safety and careers, GOP insiders smuggled out an early draft of the Republican Tea Party’s Pledge to America and have provided it exclusively to PlanetPOV. As you’ll see, this draft is quite startling in how frankly it presents the Tea Party driven sensibilities of […]

One of Arizona’s most famous son’s is Barry Goldwater, a five term Senator known as “Mr. Conservative”. Republican Senator Goldwater launched a bid for President of the United States against Lyndon B.

It is a given that the party out of power picks up seats in the off year election. Why is that? The logic would seem simple. American voters have the patience and vision of a nearsighted 3 year old. Every two years after they have decided that they want a […]
