Episode 28 – Has America Become a One Party State?

In this episode, I will discuss whether America is becoming a one-party state. With a Congress dominated by one party, there is little or no representation for the vast number of people who did not vote for that party. It is a situation that threatens to undermine democracy itself and send us hurtling into the political abyss.

Episode 25 – The Cruelty of Tax Cuts

In this episode, I will discuss why I think that tax cuts are a cruel policy. One of the favorite tools used by conservatives is the idea of the tax cut. Their idea is that if we cut back on government services, business will pick up the slack and create better services. Let’s see whether that holds up.

Biting the hand that feeds you

Many People in the UK want to break ties with the European Union. This is a mistake for both partners, brought on by members of the Conservative party.

A Sterling Speech from President Obama

President Obama, as usual, produced a speech that attempt to tackle important national issues, rather than the tired, tepid and delusional ideology of the right-wing.

Conservative Autocrats

Conservatives continue to show themselves as incapable of participation in a fair, open electoral process with their attempts to manipulate elections in their favor.

The Threat to American Democracy

The anger towards gun restrictions among Republicans is a dangerous sign. The stance towards Obama has become far too inflamed and should be curtailed.

Government Spending is the Solution

Austerity measures in Europe have succeeded only in creating unemployment of 11.6%. Republicans in Congress want the same in the United States. It would be disastrous.

To Abrogate a President

Republicans continue to frustrate the Presidents agenda by blocking all nominees for his cabinet, regardless of the qualifications. This does not bode well for Liberal Democracy.

Solving Dysfunction in Washington

There are ways to solve the gridlock in Washington, some unlikely, and some downright dangerous. Without serious change by Republicans, none are likely.

An Irresistible Force

This Republican Congress creates an artificial crisis every few weeks or months. No nation can successfully govern itself under these conditions.
