Thank you for finally telling us about the criminally abusive spying programs of the federal government, Senator Feinstein. Now resign. [...]
It is a time of fear in the face of freedom, a time of an emptying country and swelling cities, a time for the widening of previous roads and the opening of new paths, yet a time when these paths are mined by knowing algorithms of the all-seeing eye. It is the time of the warrior's peace and the miser's charity, when the planting of a seed is an act of conscientious objection.

Clay Aiken is running for Congress on a platform of increasing military spending. [...]
If it wasn’t for politicians like Kay Hagan, we would have more all-American clothing companies, and more clothing companies offering more made-in-the-USA clothes. [...]
Democrats, what makes any of these politicians a good choice – not just the best choice among those who are running, or a popular choice, but an actual good choice to become the next President of the United States? [...]
“Vast NSA spying undermines our democratic freedoms and threatens international relations.”
