Florida Gov Race, Crist vs. Rich

In Florida, there appears to be a very strange thing taking place. Democrats and even some progressives are starting to express support for former Governor Charlie Crist who is running once more for Governor of the Sunshine State – this time as a Democrat.  This is presenting a bit of a problem, as he has competition in the way of long-time Democratic State Senator, Nan Rich.  Also, most of the Democrats in Florida still have a functional memory and can recall things from the past ten years that have occurred in the waking world. Nevertheless, this presents a grave...

Food Stamp Cuts: Collateral Damage

When a Republican Congressman pushes through a cut to food stamps, there’s one particular group of people they are hoping their Republican constituents are envisioning will be hurt the most, and suffer the most.

The result of the Supreme Court overriding the Voting Rights Act freed up nine Southern states which went to work immediately on legislation to change their election laws which no longer require approval from the federal government.

The Racism of the Republican Party

There was a point in time in America when the Republican Party consisted of northern liberals and progressives, and the standard-bearers given forth from an august set of ideology about progress fought for what was right. The party of Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt fought against Southern Democrats, who were staunch conservatives accustomed to their “cherished way of life” and smarting in perpetuity over the loss of the South’s “peculiar institution” of slavery. In the 50’s, after the defeat of the Southern efforts to halt desegregation and the civil rights movement, the parties experienced a polar reversal over a...
