    Dennis Hastert Proposes to Allow Continued Corruption

    So, instead of creating legislation that would end the culture of corruption in control of Washington D.C., they're going to make it so that they merely need to refer to it as "fundraising" to get away with it? When asked about the need for campaign finance reform as well, Hastert said he was...

    Top 10 Reasons Bush and the Republican Leadership Suck

    10. Theocratic Tendencies- Pushing for things like compulsory school prayer, using tax dollars to pay for Christian religious displays and to fund "faith-based" charities who use the money for 'recruitment' in addition to any legitimate charitable causes.

    Negligence resulting in death $440.00... The Outrage, Priceless.

    Should returning a bribe later let lawmakers off the hook?

    The Story I don't want to approach this debate in a partisan manner, so I'll begin by saying that whether it was a Republican or a Democrat in this position, I'd feel the same way on the topic. The article I linked to also mentions a Democrat returning a contribution, though, said Democrat...

    Tragic Political Games with American Troops' Lives

    "In a rush to get out of town before the holidays, GOP leaders wrapped their $453 billion defense-spending bill on Monday morning in a basketful of year-end goodies. They tacked on $29 billion for Gulf Coast hurricane relief and $4 billion to help prepare for a possible outbreak of bird flu...

    Free Trade or Not?

    Free trade opened the door for companies to move their operations to other nations where people make only pennies per hour and there are almost no ecological standards. This isn't limited to manufacturing, either. Many IT jobs, programming jobs and telemarketing/customer service jobs are also...

    Would you cross party lines at the polls & for who?

    Ok, I'm a pretty solid Democrat, though I consider myself a centrist. There are actually a number of issues that I agree with the Republicans on, though, and comprimise usually works better than one extreme or another. That's why I voted here in Massachusetts for both Bill Weld and Paul Cellucci...

    Special elections to remove unpopular presidents before the end of their terms?

    The term 'Lame Duck' always disturbs me a little. With virtually no fear of losing his or her job for the remainder of the second term and no opportunity to seek re-election, many second term presidents seem not to get a lot done. Perhaps what we need is an ammendment that would allow for...
