Today’s “conservative Republicans” have done a masterful job of brainwashing and hoodwinking many Americans into believing that the national Democrats are now some kind of “socialists.” more
Perhaps my personal “favorite” of today’s growing number of radical, right-wing conservative Republican “greatest hits” of operating out of what Paul Krugman calls “bad faith” and what Jane Mayer calls using “stealth tactics” is how they try to deceive, mislead, and fool the public into believing that they want to “save” and “reform” Social Security when, in reality, many of them want to cut or reduce the benefits and, eventually, to abolish it entirely. more
As a “liberal-Democrat,” I have tried to gain as much knowledge about the “conservative” political point of view as possible since 1980. I have come to some very disappointing conclusions, which I want to share with you. more
It is my belief that the reason why Donald Trump focuses so much on the lifestyle, social, “identity politics” and “culture wars” issues while focusing much less so on the economic, financial, “bread and butter” and “kitchen table” issues is because research clearly shows that when the Democrats focus on “my” issues, they win almost every national election in every two years. more

The major and big difference between the “liberal/progressive” national Democratic Party political views and those such as two of my college professor friends — and those of people such as myself — is that they are more concerned with and passionate about what many call the “identity politics” and “cultural wars” issues, while I am more concerned with and passionate about the economic, bread-and-butter, and kitchen-table issues of economic and financial survival of the lower and middle classes to be able to pay their bills. more
President Trump, the national Republican Party, and the national conservative news media all have a lot of nerve to constantly be accusing Democrats of having “secret conspiracies” against President Trump, when the reality is that the only real secret conspiracy that exists is the one that has been going on for a while that is associated with the Koch brothers and others. more
