Everyone know's R Money is a flip flopper. He is most likely one of the most recorded flip floppers in recent history. Won't it be fun watching candidate Etch A Sketch squirm as his past beliefs are compared with his current ones?
It seems Virginia is poised to pass two of the most restrictive anti abortion bills in the nation. The first bill grants personhood and makes no exception in case of rape or incest. Meaning that a woman who is raped will be forced to carry the baby to term and pay all of the costs that come with it. The second bill, in case the first bill does not pass, forces women to undergo an invasive vaginal ultrasound before getting an abortion. Considering the fact that Republicans want to undo the Healthcare Reform act how do they actually expect these women to pay for the children they are being forced to have?
It seems New Hampshire Republicans want to make lunch breaks optional. They have recent put forth a bill that would allow employers not to give lunch breaks. Their rationale is that employers will simply give lunch breaks based on the goodness of their hearts and not on their profit margins. How well would that work?
"Back in 2005, Walmart was forced to pay $172 million for denying workers their lunch breaks. Pyramid Breweries Inc. settled a case in 2008 for $1.5 million. Just a few months ago, California ordered Embassy Suites to pay workers tens of thousands of dollars for forcing them to skip breaks." So now that we know what Republicans have in store for workers, do you trust them with your lunch?9 AnswersPolitics9 years ago

Now that the Republicans have chosen an out of touch millionaire who socialized healthcare in Mass. as their rominee, will the Tea party fall in line and support him? So much for taking the government back. The Gop has thrown you under the bus.11 AnswersPolitics9 years ago
Why are so many Conservatives endorsing Mitt Romney? This is probably due to the fact that Romney's former company, Bain Capital, just happens to own Clear Channel Radio and Premiere Radio , the syndicator of Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, Fox News Radio Network, and just for a little variety, Randi Rhodes and Jesse Jackson.
Bain Capital bought these companies just before Romney's 2008 bid.
I am a bit confused every time I hear someone speak about how deregulation will make the economy better. It was a lack of adequate regulation that allowed investment houses to infect the world with bad debt while making a profit off them. It was the simple fact that many of the banks were allowed to pick their own regulators that led to this crisis. How is it that loosening regulation and allowing the forces of the free market to pick at the remnants of the economy going to improve things?
In a brief filed yesterday in the Fourth Circuit, the RNC argues that the federal ban on corporate donations is unconstitutional in large part because it applies across the board to all corporations.
The Cons didn't say anything about Campaign finance disclosure. They are seeking unlimited donations directly to Politicians directly from Corporations. Thoughts?
Romney is the Oligarchy that is spreading covering this nation. The support Ron Paul is getting is stronger than 2008. If Romney becomes the nominee will Paul go independent?
Mitt Romney stated today that he was worried about getting a pink slip. Romney's company, Bain Capital, has laid off thousands and outsourced jobs. Mitt Romney has made a fortune pillaging other companies in leveraged buyouts. Mitt Romney is Wall Street. Mitt Romney is the 1%. Is it not ironic yet somewhat sad that as the nation looks to recover Republicans are seeking to turn the reins over to one of the very people who drove this nation into the ground to enrich themselves.12 AnswersPolitics9 years ago
Mitt Romney is Wall Street. Bain Capital, which Romney co founded and receives millions of dollars in retirement each year from, has outsourced jobs, preformed leveraged buyouts leading to layoffs, and is most likely heavily tied into Wall Street. Romney is the American Oligarchy personified. Do we really want to hand the country outright over to the 1%?
It seems Mitt Romney is. I wonder how much he pays that guy to make sure he doesn't fall from his exalted position atop that cafe chair?4 AnswersPolitics9 years ago
China is a truly a Communist country that controls its media, does not have free speech and jails journalists and activists for speaking out against the government. Should a country like this be allowed to wrap itself around an America media company? Will they start censoring yahoo? If ALibaba is allowed to buy Yahoo would I even be able to post this question here? The internet is the new battlefront of the 21st century do we really want to have an enemy invested in our media?13 AnswersPolitics9 years ago
The Right seems to be in a permanent state of war. If it isn't the war against Christmas then it is the war against Christians. If it isn't the war against traditional values then it is the war against whites. Let's not forget the ever present danger of taking away their guns. The media is supposedly against them as is the government, the entire educational system, Hollywood, climate scientists...etc etc etc. Do they really believe there is a vast liberal conspiracy to destroy them or is it really just a case of circling the wagons against an imaginary threat?5 AnswersPolitics9 years ago
Slippery Newt's next big idea is to attack the Supreme Courts of states and the Federal Supreme Court. Newt wants to make Justices impeachable based upon their rulings. This flies in the face of the three branches of government thus weaken the Judicial branch. Why is this being done? The right wing wants the ability to create laws that are unconstitutional and they don't want judges to get in their way. The Supreme Court is called that because it is supposed to be above petty political squabbles. Now slippery Newt and the right wants to change that.
