A Fool and His Liberty...

...are soon parted

One hundred, two hundred years ago, had the US held a referendum on abolishing constitutional rights, it would not have gone over well. Today... I'm not so sure.

What a hero. Chomping at the bit to eagerly relinquish the freedoms others fought and died for. How easy it must be to give away something you never had to earn.

True Americans knew the value of freedom; they would have never have stood for today's institutional perversion of democracy. I don't know if the current generation is beyond saving yet, but if not, it needs a swift kick in the pants, an injection of Whig ideology, and a history lesson.

A Folksy Miscarriage of Democracy

Least Conservative Candidate

You know you've gone off the deep end of the political spectrum when the single most racist, bigoted, Xenophobic, regressive, plutocratic, fascist, and nativist candidate is too "progressive" for your tastes.

God save America. She certainly needs it.

Sleeping Giant

Yes, Ben Garrison is a conspiracy nut whose work should really not be featured in this publication so as not to encourage him. But I liked the sentiment of the cartoon, and some (not all, or even most) aspects of it are spot-on.

Perhaps the greatest inaccuracy: the "sleeping giant" of the American public is deeply sedated under anesthetic and unlikely to wake up anytime soon (not to mention, 23 pounds overweight).
