When Republicans win, Americans lose

rich-poorThe Republican Party and the Conservative Movement have only two motivations for their actions: 1) Serving large corporations and the Greedy Rich class; 2) getting elected and staying in power. Everything they do can be put into one of these two, or even both, of these categories.

Let’s take a look at the minimum wage debate:

Democrats want to raise the minimum wage so people who are working hard for a living do not have to live in poverty. In other words, Democrats think the American should be for everyone, not just the Greedy Rich class.

The impeachment circus is coming to DC

Speaker Boehner just realized he has zero control over his members

Speaker Boehner just realized that he has zero control over his House members

On June 25th Speaker of the House, John Boehner, (R-OH), announced he was going to sue President Obama because Boehner feels President Obama is issuing too many executive orders. When asked what, specifically he was suing the president over, Boehner said: “When I make that decision I will let you know.”

Speaker Boehner is suing the White House…again! *updated

UPDATE: Speaker John Boehner, (R-OH), was asked by a reporter at a press conference which specific executive orders he was suing the president over. His reply? “When I make that decision, I will let you know.” Speaker Boehner is suing the president except he has no idea why. Does anyone else see the huge problem here?

House Republicans have decided to sue the White House because of President Obama’s use of executive orders. The facts are that President Obama has issued less executive orders than any other modern president.

The Most Important Election in a Lifetime

Get involved The midterm elections coming up this November are the most important elections of my lifetime. Republicans have gridlocked Washington DC. The longer this Republican obstruction continues, the more damage will be done to our country.

There are three possible scenarios that could emerge after the election: 1) Maintain the status quo; 2) the Republicans take over the Senate and keep the House of Representatives; 3) the Republicans lose the House of Representatives and the Democrats keep the Senate.

1) Maintaining the status quo – The Republicans keep the House of Representatives and don’t take over the Senate:

The Exponential Rise of Republican Presidential Criminality

GOP in jailFor decades the Republicans and Conservatives have been telling the American people there is no difference between the two parties. The reason is simple: Low voter turnout elections favor the Republicans. If the voters are apathetic, less will come out to vote. However in this article I am going to point out just one of the major differences between the two parties: Criminality.

Even though Republicans in Congress have investigated Democratic presidents incessantly, the very worse they could come up with was President Clinton’s dalliance with Monica Lewinsky. That hardly rises to the level of what Republican presidents have been in engaged in.

America’s Two-Tiered Economy

rich-poorFifty-seven percent of Americans think we are still in a recession. Economists and cable news pundits are surprised. Huh?

In the past couple of years, economists have been telling us that the economy of the United States is expanding. To make their point, they use the Growth Domestic Product, (GDP), which is the output of the economy.

GDP has been growing at a pretty consistent rate of around 2.5%. Sounds good until you put a couple of numbers together.
