A Vote Against Truth
We were once a shining city on a hill, but men and women with spades of deceit and shovels of lies have dug out the foundation of our republic while they point the finger at others for sending us careening into the bottom of a ravine.
A Republican Woman Spoke Up … Again
“To sit back hoping that someday, someway, someone will make things right is to go on feeding the crocodile, hoping he will eat you last – but eat you he will.” Ronald Reagan’s warning should ring like a siren in the ears of every Republican capitulating to the delusional conspiracies of a certain septuagenarian from Florida.
