Obama Pushes God Belief Into The Democratic Platform

Committee: Vote David Walker for President First. You’ll get his Policy Ideas later.

The campaign to Draft David Walker for President is an awfully strange one in many ways, right down to David Walker himself making an appearance on national TV to declare that he wasn’t running for president, and he wasn’t encouraging anyone to vote for him for president, except back when he repeatedly did, but anyway […]

Americans Elect Job Listing Apparently at Odds With Public Claim on Platform Questions

Mountain Party, What Plans for the Next Election?

Last year, West Virginia’s Mountain Party candidate for Governor, Jesse Johnson, won with 4.5 percent of the vote. How’s that possible? Well, you have to figure out what victory for the Mountain Party means. Jesse Johnson never entered the race reasonably expecting to actually win office (although he might say otherwise in public). Running for […]

Republican Cult of Nationalism Enshrined in GOP Platform

Under the cult proposed by the GOP platform, the deity to be worshipped would be the state itself. The nation of the United States of America would be elevated to the status of a god. […]

Bristol Palin Betrayed By GOP Platform

Blocking access for sexually active teenagers to contraceptives is part of the Republican Party platform. If the Republicans are allowed to keep control of the White House, there are going to be a lot more teenage mothers like Bristol Palin. […]

GOP Platform Supports Religious Discrimination

In their platform, the Republicans focus on the ability of government-funded religious bureaucracies to discriminate on the basis of religion. That means, for example, that a government-funded program could fire someone from a government-funded job for refusing to convert to Catholicism. […]

GOP Appoints Blackwell as Platform Vice Chair, Confirming Moral Rot

I read this morning that the Republican Party has appointed former Ohio Secretary of State and former candidate for Ohio Governor Ken Blackwell to be Vice Chairman of its Platform Committee, the committee dedicated to writing the 2008 platform for the Republican National Convention.

Who is going to be leading the effort to write the […]

Democratic Party To Officially Oppose Nonreligious Americans

According to the Constitution of the United States of America, the government is supposed to be uninvolved in matters of religion, and leave belief up to individual personal conscience. However, as of 2008, the Democratic Party will no longer support that position. […]
