Republican Party Captive To Tea Party, Holding America Hostage!

The Republican Party has officially become hostage to the Tea Party lunatics, and now the Tea Party is holding America hostage, and Speaker John Boehner seems unable to do anything about it, so we are now in a very difficult economic and political crisis! The government will now be “shut down”, with no end in sight!

The government is being undermined by these anarchistic, radical, anti government whackos who hate government and hate progress, and hate anyone but the rich and powerful!

They are mean spirited, and will do everything to keep the middle and lower classes in desperation, while enriching the elite, and they answer to the Koch Brothers and other despicable oligarchs of wealth!

The Republican Party, now 159 years old, is on its last legs, and soon will be part of history, with a sad ending, as a more moderate party will emerge, as this extreme, regressive, right wing party does not represent America and its democratic values!

America is not about to wipe out the advancements of the progressive movement of the early 20th century; the New Deal; the Great Society; and other political, social, and economic advancements over the past century, which have made America a better place, a country of hope and change and progress for all, not just the elite wealthy!

Des Moines Register Poll Of Iowa Democrats Prefers “Fresh Face” In 2016

A Des Moines Register Poll of Democrats in Iowa shows that they prefer a “fresh face” for the Democratic nomination for President in 2016, over a more experienced candidate such as Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden, who together have about 70 years in public governing service.

Since Iowa is the first state to have a say in the nominating process, this could encourage “newer” faces, such as Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York, Governor Martin O’Malley of Maryland, Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota, Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Senator Mark Warner of Virginia, soon to be Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey, and San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, to “throw their hat in the ring”, a term developed by former President Theodore Roosevelt, when he announced he was running again for President in 1912.

This blogger has suggested earlier that such a development might be good for the Democratic Party, particularly at a time when the Republican Party will have a much younger nominee than either Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden.
