Vote Liberal In 2016

Over the next 22 months, there are going to be a lot of corporations and wealthy families spending a lot of money to convince you that you need to be afraid. They’ll tell you that you need to be afraid of Muslims and Mexicans, of Ebola and of health care, of science and of clean […]

Missing Rush Holt Already

Today, the 114th Congress of the United States of America begins its business, with the opening session of the House of Representatives. Yes, already.

One voice in the U.S. House will be especially conspicuous in its absence: That of New Jersey’s Rush Holt, who has left Congress to lead the American Association for the Advancement […]

Is Mitt Romney For Same-Sex Marriage Equality Or Against It?

During the 2012 presidential election, Mitt Romney made it clear that he is opposed to equality in marriage rights for heterosexuals and homosexuals. “I do not favor marriage between people of the same gender, and I do not favor civil unions if they are identical to marriage other than by name,” he said.
