Why Republicans continue to worship Reagan
At this critical time in our country's history, Republicans are hell bent on defeating the President and the cost will be passed on the middle class. If that is class warfare then let the war begin and take no prisioners.
I tried to retire.
As the country faces the budget battle the rhetoric increases and misinformation abounds------"that statement was never intended to be factually true" is the name of the game being played by both sides and the losers are you and me.

If you are undecided, it is time to step up

Are we that cynical?
This could be the most important election in our country's history and certainly unique. Barack Obama and Sarah Palin have focused the nation on our prejudices concerning race and gender. Will the country become more divided after Nov. 7 or will we enter a time of progressive change?
