In Solidarity with Occupy Denver, Connecticut Students Revoke John Hickenlooper’s Diploma

Rick Perry Tries To Organize Governors’ Revolt Against the Constitution

Rick Perry’s attempt to organize a theocratic rebellion of state governments against the First Amendment of the Constitution 1) attempts to deny citizens’ equal protection under the law; 2) attempts to violate citizens constitutional right to freedom of religion; 3) attempts to create a government establishment of religion. It’s a thorough and blatant rebellion against America’s constitutional government. [...]

Paul LePage Admits: I’m Pushing Charter Schools to Get Creationism in Public Schools

In the summer of 2010, after Republican gubernatorial candidate Paul LePage shot his mouth off about believing in creationism and wanting to put creationism in Maine’s public schools, Republican Party apologists for his candidacy tossed themselves into the media to allay concerns that LePage had veered into insanity.
