Sen. Marco Rubio: Same-Sex Marriage is a ‘Real and Present Danger’ to Christianity (Video)


I think it’s time to finally be honest about the whole “gay marriage debate”: It’s total and complete nonsense. Most of these Republicans couldn’t care less whether or not gay Americans are allowed to get married, and most know that preventing them from doing so is unconstitutional. What this all boils down to is the GOP […]

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott Thinks Obama’s Invading One Day, Begs Him For Help The Next


It’s not really a big secret that Republicans are absolute hypocrites when it comes to many things. They’re the “small government, fiscally conservative Americans” who haven’t had a president from their party balance the budget in over 50 years (no, not even the “conservative icon” Ronald Reagan) and Republicans are huge fans of expanding government […]

10 Facts Republicans Really Don’t Want Americans to Know About Their Party

I’m often amazed at just how delusional many Republicans are about their own party. These are people who’ll literally profess how “pro-life” their party is just before bragging about how much they support the death penalty or talk about how they’re advocates for small government while supporting laws banning same-sex marriage. The GOP is almost […]

Former Reagan, Bush Adviser: Fox News is ‘Brainwashing’ Conservatives (Video)


I’ve made my feelings clear on what I think about Fox News. It was actually just a few days ago that I was talking with a friend of mine about how much better off this nation would be right now if the network didn’t exist. It’s not a coincidence that we’ve become more and more […]

Here’s Proof That Bernie Sanders is the True Progressive Democrats Need in 2016


Even though the 2016 elections are still a ways away, the campaigns for most of the candidates have already begun. While normally I find presidential election years fascinating and interesting, I’ll freely admit that an 18-month buildup is going to give me some intense “election fatigue.” Then again, candidates like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz […]

Two Great Examples Exposing the Hypocrisy of So-Called Conservative Christians


I firmly believe that the vast majority of so-called “Christian” conservatives are absolute hypocrites. While there are some out there who are legitimately decent people, many of the ones I encounter seem to almost completely determine their Christianity on four things. They: Own a Bible. Go to church. Don’t like homosexuals. Oppose abortions. And that’s […]

More Bad News for GOP: New Survey Shows Americans Really Like Their Obamacare


While Republicans will go on endless rants about all the “horrors” they claim are going to happen as a result of the Affordable Care Act, what they’re really afraid of is what’s actually starting to happen: Americans are realizing that they like it – a lot. Is the law perfect? No. I think in a […]

Mike Huckabee’s Support of Sexual Predators Isn’t Just Limited to His Defense of Josh Duggar

mike huckabee 1

By now most people have heard about the horrific allegations surrounding well-known anti-gay bigot Josh Duggar, one of the “stars” of the TLC reality show 19 Kids and Counting. There’s not really a whole lot of gray area to this. And, no, I’m not buying this nonsense that, “Well he was only 14, so he didn’t […]

Three New Polls Prove To Be An Absolute Nightmare For The Republican Party


It’s no real secret to anyone with even the slightest bit of common sense that the Republican party is largely built on propaganda. Often when I debate many of these people, I feel as if I’m confined to a world where reality and facts matter, whereas they can just say whatever they’ve been told to […]

Lead GOP Benghazi Investigator Tries To Invent Another Conspiracy, Gets Busted Lying Through His Teeth


Here we are, almost three years after the attack on our embassy in Benghazi, Libya, and we’re still talking about it. The way in which Republicans have blatantly used this tragedy for political gains has been absolutely pathetic. Hell, even last November when a Republican-led investigation debunked every lie they’ve been pushing since 2012, they still didn’t stop. All […]
