Progressives – taking a what to the Constitution?

Remember, this is Progressivism in process.  Constitution?  Bill of Rights? Progressivism is incremental socialism.  You know what that means? Yeah, that’s right. Satisfying every "gimme" person until there’s no money anywhere…think I’m kidding?  Where’s that $100 Trillion owed for S.S & Medicare coming from?  Go ahead – ask that "proud" Progressive and watch them squirm….

A comparison of Community Builders (TEA Party) vs Community Organizers (Obama’s Alinsky)

I have been trying to do more reading than usual – not on current events but more on underlying philosophies so as to (hopefully) lead to better blogging. One of those posts I ran across had this: …The message from Tea Partiers is that Alinsky has not succeeded any better than his more illustrious revolutionary …

Thoughts on the US Supreme Court decision on Citizens United

It is not clear to me that most people understand just what a game-changer the Supreme Court’s just-issued opinion in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission really is. It upholds the Constitution and eviscerates the unconstitutional McCain-Feingold law that was proposed and pushed by the most recent Republican Presidential candidate, John McCain, and signed by …

Former NH Democrat Chair, Kathy Sullivan, thinks that the “nullification” movement is a fringe thing?
