Trump's legal troubles are exposing a National Security state run amok

Why are Liberals Defending the Outrageous Secrecy of this Supposedly ‘Democratic’ Nation?

We know what the real Jesus would do with this government, but how about this?

What would a real Opposition Party of the People Do?

We are currently at the mercy of a cabal of self-righteous Christian zealots with a 6-3 grip on the US Supreme Court and on Congress, thanks to an arcane structure designed by slave-owning wealthy men who handed the power to a Senate dominated by small-state rich people and to their party of Christian fascists and …
