The Real Rights Rand Paul Seeks to Protect

by: RDemocrat

Wed Jun 19, 2013 at 20:37:05 PM EDT

The Mad Doctor with the twisty curls from Kentucky is continuing his 2016 Presidential bid. And while he will not say so right now, Rand Paul is running for President. Since he is in the modern Republican Party that means one thing. He must win over the maniacal, far-right zealots in the hardcore Republican base. So with that in mind, Rand Paul is railing against the government, and the Affordable Care Act. He wants Americans to believe that he is looking out for their "rights" and protecting them from their government. However, past the lunatic right-wing in this country I believe most Americans will look at the "rights" Rand Paul does not protect and who he believes Americans deserve no protection whatsoever from.

Rand Paul Wants You To Pick Up Apple's Tax Bill

by: RDemocrat

Tue May 21, 2013 at 17:11:17 PM EDT

It is no big secret that Rand Paul wants to be President. In beginning his campaign one thing he wants to convince Americans of. He wants us to believe he is a different kind of Republican. He wants us to believe he is looking out for us and wants to protect us from the big old bad government. However, when one really looks at Rand Paul and what he believes one thing is clear. He is just as bad as any Republican and possibly worse. In the end there is really only only one group of people he is seeking to protect.

President Obama: Are You Ready to Fight Yet?

by: RDemocrat

Mon Apr 08, 2013 at 15:28:19 PM EDT

For a long time we have been telling the President and all Democrats one thing. There is no need to try and compromise or "reach out" to the modern Republican Party led by such "people" as John Boehner and Mitch McConnell. Indeed reaching out to these folks only leads to one thing. Pulling back a bloody nub. And now for a President that seems all to willing to sell his base and his beliefs down the river for some "grand bargain" to create some sort of legacy to be "proud" of we can only ask this. Ready to fight yet?

The Mitch McConnell Way of Achieving "Balance"

by: RDemocrat

Sun Mar 24, 2013 at 23:36:53 PM EDT

Mitch McConnell is doing what he does best yet again. He just cannot stand the fact that Democrats have come up with working budgets that call for sacrifice from folks like himself and do not call to balance the budget on the backs of working Americans and the most vulnerable among us. And while the Paul Ryan budget that Republicans preach like gospel creates a $5.7 trillion hole for the middle-class to pay for, McConnell and his Republicans just ignore that fact. Instead he seeks to attack a balanced plan that addresses the jobs crisis and calls for some sacrifice from everyone.

A Promise Kept By Mitch McConnell and the Republicans

by: RDemocrat

Thu Mar 21, 2013 at 21:42:07 PM EDT

Another day another Mitch McConnell hypocrisy or flat-out lie whichever you choose to call it. His obsession to in this case not balance the budget on the backs of working Americans while redistributing our nation's wealth from those who work for it to himself and his ilk knows no limits. Today, he and Charles Grassley offered an amendment to stop the "largest tax increase in American history" but actually it hypocritically promises two things. Not only slashing programs working Americans depend on, but an even larger tax increase because of a huge funding gap. Of course in the world of Mitch McConnell tax increases do not count if you increase them on working Americans. They only count if you increase them on rich Americans like himself.

Rand Paul: Libertarian or Hypocrite?

by: RDemocrat

Mon Feb 18, 2013 at 18:35:44 PM EST

It is no secret that the Mad Doctor with the twisty curls Rand Paul wants to be President. It is also no secret that the now disgraced tea-bagger movement would love nothing more than to elect a radical zealot from their ranks to the White House to continue the destruction of our country wrought by the Corporate Republicans of the last Administration. However, what they really want to keep secret is just what their vision for this country will really be. That is why they are sugar-coating what a "libertarian-Republican" administration would really mean.

Stand Up For Corporate Tax Fairness

by: RDemocrat

Thu Feb 07, 2013 at 18:36:33 PM EST

It is a sign of the times in America. The Business Roundtable which represents Wall St. and Corporate America recently came out with a plan to raise the Social Security and Medicare age to 70 for millions of Americans, cut current Social Security and veterans benefits, and increase taxes on working Americans. They were cheered on by just about every Republican politician in doing so on both the state and federal level. The only problem? At the same time these firms on Wall St. and in Corporate America were dodging billions of dollars in taxes.

Debt Ceiling Fight Next Battleground for Social Safety Net

by: RDemocrat

Sun Jan 06, 2013 at 19:00:33 PM EST

Now that the "fiscal cliff" dive has been diverted without Republicans being allowed to pick Medicare and Social Security clean the Senator for Communist China Mitch McConnell is fuming. He was forced to raise taxes on a few folks like himself and lost a huge opportunity to steal from more working and retired Americans. He did not get to raise the Medicare age, the Social Security age and did not even get to gut benefits for current retirees. Yes, all in all it was a very bad deal for Mitch McConnell and the party of greed and idiocy he "leads".

Hey America Lets Go Cliff-Diving

by: RDemocrat

Sat Dec 22, 2012 at 01:14:33 AM EST

It is probably the best thing that has happened in the whole "fiscal cliff" fiasco. The Prince of Orange John Boehner suffered a humiliating defeat to his own radical caucus and left Washington without doing his job in disgrace. And while the Republican "Plan B" was shot down in flames the President and his post re-election ideas are just about as bad. And of course since its best for America that both Boehner and Obama's latest "compromises" are rejected the Senator for Communist China Mitch McConnell is calling for something he hasn't wanted for four years. For the Senate to pass a bill.

My Message to Democratic "Leaders": Again?

by: RDemocrat

Wed Dec 19, 2012 at 02:59:44 AM EST

The news today if true about the "fiscal cliff" negotiations is not only quite disturbing, but equally as much perplexing. I guess it should not be. The modern Democratic Party with a few exceptions has long been very good at this. Through cowardice or complicity or whatever reason you might believe the Democratic Party always seems to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. No wonder they can never keep power for too long and can never enact an agenda to stop decades of trickle-down economics. Americans believe they talk a good game but are too cowardly to do anything about it. And you know something? They are for the most part spot on.

On "Fiscal Cliff" Washington Ignores America Again

by: RDemocrat

Tue Dec 18, 2012 at 15:38:56 PM EST

No matter what party controls the White House or Congress one thing is ringing true time and time again. The politicians in Washington care little about the will of the American people and instead hope to impose their own elitist will upon the rest of us. These "fiscal cliff" negotiations are becoming the latest example of the "screw you" attitudes of politicians in both parties. Because although the American people have spoken, and continue to speak loud and clear on this issue Washington politicians simply refuse to listen.

Republicans Insult America With "Counter-Offer"

by: RDemocrat

Mon Dec 03, 2012 at 18:02:46 PM EST

Today Republicans have made their "counter offer" in the fiscal cliff negotiations. No surprises here. Instead of coming up with their own original ideas the Republicans are rehashing the plans introduced by Erksine Bowles last year to the failed "deficit super committee". As you can guess with anything the modern Republican Party puts it's stamp on this "counter-offer" is simply a giveaway to the greediest and least patriotic among us and seeks to balance the budget on the backs of seniors and by stealing away the social safety net from generations of younger Americans.

Republicans Go For a Decisive Win In Their Class War

by: RDemocrat

Fri Nov 30, 2012 at 22:43:10 PM EST

Today's events in the "fiscal cliff" negotiations should show Americans one thing. Republicans have gone on offensive in their all-out war against most of America. They are showing in no uncertain terms that they simply do not care what Americans want or what is best for them. Their only goal is what it always has been. To redistribute wealth upwards to a very few and keep it there, and to leave working middle and lower class Americans to foot the bill for the excesses of the last thirty years that they did not share in.

I Hope Rand Paul Keeps Talking

by: RDemocrat

Wed Nov 21, 2012 at 08:18:22 AM EST

The Commonwealth of Kentucky sure has managed to elect two of the most disgraceful Senators in American history. First of course we have the Senator for Communist China Mitch McConnell. His greed, hypocrisy and anti-Americanism are well documented for all who wish to realize the truth to see. However, Kentucky has another Senator who is quickly catching up with Mitch McConnell in the Republican fantasy world of idiocy. Now it seems as if the Mad Doctor with the twisty curls Rand Paul is joining McConnell in promoting the Republican brand of "compromise" and Americanism.

Across America a funny thing appears to be happening. Far-Right wing zealots who for decades have been telling us all how much they love their country and have constantly lectured us about their own patriotism are having their true feelings and hypocrisy shown to all. Was it some Pulitzer winning expose' that did this? Did Geraldo Rivera open a vault of knowledge that had something in it this time? No, it was the words and actions of these un-American zealots that exposed them.

Mitch McConnell is doing what he does best. Around here, we call him the Senator for Communist China for a reason. That is because he thinks America should be much more like the oppressive Communist regime in China. That way, no matter what people think or what Americans want McConnell can feel justified in destroying Democracy. Now, after this election Mitch McConnell is planning to do just that again.

The Reasons Mitt Romney Can't Tell You the Truth

by: RDemocrat

Thu Oct 04, 2012 at 21:48:10 PM EDT

Last night in the first Presidential debate we saw a performance from Mitt Romney that had many people fawning in admiration. The only problem? Last night in the Presidential debate Americans heard nothing about how Romney will implement his "vision" for America. What we really heard was a bunch of lies, distortion of the Presidents record and some silly little talking points that Romney has never backed up with facts. The fact of the matter is that trickle-down economics simply does not work and everytime it is tried more Americans suffer and fall into poverty. Of course, folks like Romney could care less because they are the very few that ever benefit from this idiocy.

Americans going to the polls in November today can easily see the difference between the candidates for President and indeed what is wrong with our country in the last few decades. Men like Mitt Romney want to make hundreds of millions of dollars on your backs and then when it is time to pay back to the system that allowed them so much wealth they believe they should be exempt. Worse than that, they believe that they should pay less than middle and lower class Americans who work hard every day to make those profits possible.

All Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan care about is keeping the good times rolling for themselves and their ilk at the expense of those who really need help. Working Americans.

That is because when you look at what Mitt Romney and the Corporate zealots in the Republican Party want to do for this country it is indeed evil in itself.

Mitt Romney and the Republican Party he now "leads" are determined to do one thing. Force average Americans to pay for the economy they crashed and the debt they caused with their own greed. They slopped at the government trough and pocketed cash advances off the American credit card for years and now that the bill has come due they simply refuse to pay their share of that bill. Instead they expect working Americans to pay for their greed once again. The American worker who has seen none of the gains from that greed and have already bailed it out once. Unfortunately for America the greed of folks like Romney is a never-ending evil.

by: RDemocrat

One thing Republicans are always doing is trying to use religion to divide America as a whole. They definately have no problem trying to use religion as a ramrod to divide our country as long as religious leaders agree with them on the issues. Sadly though, when religion refuses to go along with the Republican vision of greed Republican leaders feel the need to correct them on their biblical knowledge. Such was the case today with John Boehner and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

It is only "class warfare" to these folks when they are asked to sacrifice for the problems they caused with "trickle-down" idiocy. This week the Senate will take up a bill to do just that.

There are so many problems with the Republican vision of greed introduced by Paul Ryan that it is hard to name them all. It appears as if Republicans will never be satisfied until they steal every penny available from working Americans and our economy. The worst part of the Ryan budget is not only the complete uncaring greed it exhibits but the simple fact that it fails to address the biggest problem in America right now. Indeed, it actually costs jobs instead of creating them.

Fortunately our country as a whole is beginning to see through the propoganda and shun Republican ideas. That is leaving the party of greed with very few options.

In a time when so many of the very rich and Corporate America are pushing for lower taxes some interesting information is coming forward. While Republicans and Corporate Democrats will try to convince you that these folks pay too much in taxes and that our "job creators" should not be forced to sacrifice or pay their fair share as usual the truth is not on their side. As it turns out some of the biggest firms in America paid very little of their precious profits in U.S. taxes.

Flat Taxes: A Wet Dream for the Rich, A Nightmare for the Rest of Us

by: RDemocrat

Mon Nov 07, 2011 at 13:19:39 PM EST

You constantly hear various Republican candidates and think-tanks spewing one idea in one form or another. A flat-tax. Sometimes they actually manage to convince ordianary Americans this is the best route to go on taxes. You see, a flat-tax would end Progressive taxation and most all deductions. A closer look at this scheme easily reveals why these folks want it so badly. A flat tax is a wet dream for the rich and a nightmare for all of us.

Trumka Blasts Proposed Cuts To Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid

by: RDemocrat

Mon Oct 31, 2011 at 06:47:53 AM EDT

One thing we all feared when this "Super Committee" to cut the federal debt was announced was that one of their main solutions would be to slash the social safety net of millions of Americans. Well sure enough instead of asking the wealthy and the folks that crashed our economy and caused our debt to sacrifice for their own greed reports are that this "Super Committee" will pursue cuts in Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Luckily, it appears as if they will not do so without a fight.

The Rick Perry Republican Vision: Greater of Two Evils

by: RDemocrat

Tue Oct 25, 2011 at 14:27:38 PM EDT

While I have been very disappointed in President Obama at times and wish he would embrace a much more Progressive vision when you look at what will be America's alternatives to him it is quite scary. It seems no matter which Republican you listen to their vision for America is the same. Take Dick Cheney and George W. Bush after a lengthy spell of smoking crack and allow them to make policy. It seems as if ever Republican running for the White House offers only a radical, insane version of all the failed policies of the last decade rolled into one. Yes the Republican vision for our country can only be described as the greater of two evils.

Tax Fight Brings the Same Decision to Working Americans

by: RDemocrat

Mon Oct 17, 2011 at 21:00:23 PM EDT

If you just mention the thought of the wealthy paying their fair share Repubicans wail in horror. That is "class warfare" and would unjustly punish the "job creators" who somehow aren't creating jobs with cash reserves and low taxes already. While this may explain things in the little old world fantasy they live in the truth is simply another matter. You see all across America millionaires are paying a smaller tax rate than folks making much less money yearly.

New Poll Highlights Differences Between Teabaggers and Occupiers

I think one thing teabaggers and Occupyers have in common is this. They both realize that Washington simply does not work for them anymore and does not care about their concerns. The difference is the zealots in the teabag movement want to blame the government and not the Corporate stooges from the Republican Party and even some Democratic ones they have voted for to destroy all our livelihoods and wreck the American way of life for the last thirty years. The Occupiers seek to hold those forces accountable and enact real reform.

Democrats Warm to Occupy Wall St. as Republicans Remain Clueless

by: RDemocrat

Mon Oct 10, 2011 at 21:39:21 PM EDT

One of the main problems we have had around here as lifelong Democrats is this. Democrats seem to always be too cowardly to fight for what they should, and are always to eager to "compromise" with Republicans which always means giving Republicans everything they want to finish their goal of destroying America for 99% of us. At first, this appeared to be happening yet again with the Occupy Wall St. movement but now Democrats seem to be warming to the idea of fighting for American values again. But of course, Republicans are always blinded by their own greed and remain clueless.

We have been pointing out the greed of Republicans for quite some time here. However, these folks can even surprise us sometimes with just how far this greed can go. When it comes to finding solutions to our economic woes it seems the only thing Republicans care about is that taxes on the top 2% of Americans should not go up no matter what. While they ask the poor, children and the unemployed to sacrifice even more they refuse themselves to give up anything to this country they profess to love so much.

In their never-ending quest to balance the budget on the backs of those who can least afford it and keep the good times rolling for the greediest and least patriotic among us they want you to accept that you simply must give up your Social Security when the "Super Congress" convenes. However, this simply is not true. Social Security is funded by a seperate payroll tax and does not contribute to the deficit. Now Senator Bernie Sanders is introducing a bill to keep Social Security solvent for everyone for years to come.

For example CEO pay rose 27% in 2010. Who do you think is going to pay for that? We will. The corporations these CEO's represent will raise prices, on their products, to pay for the gaudy CEO pay increases and we will pay for it when we buy their products that reflect those gaudy pay increases. That's a tax imposed on me by corporate America. I call it a Corporate Tax.

Now, despite the fact that Republicans are trying to paint themselves as "fiscally conservative" by opposing anything that helps working America because it "adds to the deficit" of course the one thing they are always ready to add to the deficit for is money for the rich. Unfortunately, many Democrats are buying into it as well. However, if they cared about the will of the American people they would scrap them.

Two of their favorite "lying points" are the expiring Bush tax cuts and the stimulus act which although not enough, did save millions of jobs. Of course, the stooges on the right cannot let you know that.

However, now with the deficit caused by Republican policies of spend and spend and put two wars and numerous tax cuts on your credit card, Social Security is coming under attack.

Yes, even before we have truly begun cleaning up their mess the oil companies are already fighting a measure that would tax petroleum production to help pay for the cleanup. To add insult to injury, oil companies already soak up government subsidies and relocate offshore to keep from paying taxes.

Rand Paul Ignores the Facts to Starve the Beast

by: RDemocrat

Rand Paul wants to paint himself as some kind of "different" Republican. He really wants to embody the radical tea-bag movement in this country.
