• This is a political forum that is non-biased/non-partisan and treats every persons position on topics equally. This debate forum is not aligned to any political party. In today's politics, many ideas are split between and even within all the political parties. Often we find ourselves agreeing on one platform but some topics break our mold. We are here to discuss them in a civil political debate. If this is your first visit to our political forums, be sure to check out the RULES.

    Democratic Party Rightward Drift

    Stumbled across the graph below while researching a link in a recent thread on political leanings -- Forum Poster Composite of Political Ideologies -- which is worth a look/post. While this is on UK parties I see the same thing happening in the US... namely, both major parties have drifted...

    Ted Cruz Gets Boos From Christians by Praising Israel[W:329]

    I find this a quite interesting turn of events, since evangelical Christians seem to form the backbone of the right wing base and as a backbone of the Tea Party (an even righter wing base, of which Cruz has previously been a darling). A beef with Israel seems quite out of character for them...

    Fox News' Alternate Reality 2.0

    The right wing alternate reality only gets curiouser and curiouser. Pretty much anyone understands that Reaganomics / Supply Side Economics is trickle down theory. Even Reagan budget director David Stockman says so: And even today, the right's rabid defence of "job creators" is simply...

    Fox's Obamacare Birth Control Mandate

    Just heard on Fox News Sunday, host Chris Wallace -- while interviewing Mitt Romney -- referred once or twice to the Obamacare birth control mandate. Of course there is no such thing, but there is a mandate that birth control prescriptions be covered by insurance policies the same as any other...

    Forbes Fabricates Figures

    In a DP discussion of new Obamacare fees which has gone wildly off topic (http://www.debatepolitics.com/obamacare-aca/181904-new-obamacare-fees-coming-2014-w-41-a.html), I was hit with two links in one post referring to the same NY Post article on doctors who are not signing up to participate in...

    Fox News' Alternate Reality

    Heard yesterday (02 Jan 14) @ 1310-1330 Eastern time on XM Radio's Fox News Channel (just audio from their TV feed) while driving. The male host was speaking (I don't know the name of the particular program or the Fox News host). The quotes are from the male host and, while from memory, are...

    Scott Brown's (R-MA) Ride on the Deception Train

    Seems that Sen. Brown, up for reelection this go-around, is also streaming the Obama quote-lie ("you didn't build that") as a campaign commercial on YouTube. Perhaps even worse, he's crassly playing the class warfare game by repeatedly calling his opponent, Elizabeth Warren, "Professor" Warren...

    Fox Does It Again -- Another Edited Obama Quote [W:86]

    First I'd like to point out that this is in the wrong forum... but we don't have one for Lies in the Media, which is pretty much all Fox does. I don't particularly care about bias, but I do care about lies. But watch whenever you discuss Fox's lies, the right will begin talking about bias --...

    Fox and Friends Idolize China

    Yesterday (7/15/20102) around 8:30 AM EDT Fox and Friends discussed the Olympic uniform controversy by -- supporting the purchase of Chinese uniforms :shock: Their rationale: 1) China has a lower corporate tax rate (25%). 2) China has no unions. 3) China has no minimum wage. Therefore, in...

    Lost in the Walker shuffle: WI Senate unofficially flips Democrat

    By a reported 779 votes (1.07%), a Democrat ousted a sitting Republican state senator in the Wisconsin recall election the other day, giving the Democrats a 1 vote majority in that body (previously a Republican majority). The tally is still unofficial, but my read is that even if all the...

    Gingrich: **** the Supreme Court

    Well, well, well... the fascist coming-out party for Newt, it seems (color me un-surprised). If Alberto torture-em-till-they-drop Gonzales thinks Newt's position is extreme, anybody to the left of Darth Vader had better head to the bunker for the duration. Dismantling the courts will be the...
