The Broken System

By DKIdea, published on May 31, 2014

...clinging to the two party system and seriously thinking either party really cares for them. I don’t understand why we all don’t rally around anyone that attempts to begin to make sense of it all, and vote out any other official that doesn’t do the same.

I’m not a Republican or Democrat, I’m an independent thinker given to reason, and I think the recent bill introduced by Rand Paul is one of the best ideas to come along in a while. Imagine the notion that Congress would actually read the bills before they vote on them. I’d call it pure genius if it weren’t such a sad... (more)

Votin' On a Dream

By Notumbus Bumbus, published on Jan 9, 2012

Let's be frank, shall we? No, Not Barney, just frank. You're an American voter, aren't you? Well, when you decide to vote, at least. Otherwise, you are more likely than not an American opinionator, not unlike myself, though unlike myself, many such American opinionators base said opinions more on their belief systems than on something more, oh, how shall I put this? Hmmm......pragmatic? OK, I'll go with that, for now.

Now, right or left, up or down, most political ideology is at least 99% belief-system based - maybe it came from the folks, maybe from some late-night college dorm "experience"... (more)

Thy Brother's Keeper

By Paul Wylie, published on Apr 19, 2011

Americans tend to think of the here and now when it comes to what should and should not be legalized. Ask the average person, and many will agree that 'crimes' such as smoking pot, prostitution, gambling, and even polygamy are not activities that warrant the intervention of the government. The laws outlawing these practices are legitimate targets for review and reversal, but if we really want to reform the justice system, we'd better get a team together that will review some of the stupidest laws on the books that you can be imprisoned for even today.

Taking into account that a full... (more)

What is Happening to Our Country?

By master of none, published on Oct 27, 2010

...anything but work. I was born in 85--my generation is the future.

There are some shady and disgusting things being done in Washington but no one takes it any of it seriously because Fox News is such joke. The media is controlled by the government anyways so looking for the truth is like being Sherlock Holmes. I mean, what is going on? I'm curious what others are thinking that are sick and tired of the greed and the lying and I don't care if your liberal, conservative, democrat or republican. What are people already doing to get out and change things around? I want to be there too.

Liberally Speaking

By Cecelia Hendryx, published on Dec 11, 2006

We on the Left don't really care what you people think on the Right. But we do want to redistribute your wealth. The Left is right. The Right is wrong. And never the twain shall co-exist effectively, to my taste, in the Democratic Party. If Hollywood is full of white liberals, like people say, why is almost everybody in the industry white? I think what people really mean to say is that Hollywood is full of phony white liberals. Like John Kerry, wasn't Hillary Clinton for the war, before she was against it? Of course, but we'll never see that much truth slip between her lips - just her... (more)
