The Importance of Truth and Facts

I”We the people” are actually in charge of this country. I just thought it was time someone pointed it out because many of us seem to have forgotten. We allowed an asshole and all of his asshole friends to be elected president through our benign neglect of the democratic process.

Don’t Worry, Choose Sanity

I want to say something about polls. More specifically, i want to cut the crap on those who speak of an individual poll as if it reflects reality. No individual poll has ever reflected a precise perception of reality at a specific moment in time. There is a reason why

We Already Have a “People’s Party”

We are in crisis right now, which means we, as progressives, should be in crisis mode. That means we have to do whatever works to get us out of this crisis. The biggest problem this country has, really, is an apathy problem. Too many people think voting is an option

How’d That Work Out for You? 

This is an important time for the progressive movement. It is a time for all liberals to work together for once. It’s a time for everyone on the left to organize and work together to fend off what could turn out to be one of the most trying times in

Taking Advantage of Trump

If we do our jobs properly as Americans (NOT just as liberals/Democrats, but as Americans), Donald Trump is in for a world of hurt come January 20, 2017. It is very obvious that he and the Republican Party in general think he will essentially be the “boss” of the United
