American Exceptionalism

Donald Trump may be the master of lying directly into the face of contrary established fact, but he didn’t invent it.

Since the Vietnam war, reactionaries have peddled the myth of American exceptionalism. American exceptionalism is the theory, that our founders were divinely guided, and that America is …….

Republican Dishonesty

Republican dishonesty paved the way for Donald Trump to become our Liar in Chief. For years, I have watched Republican dishonesty in awe of the scope and blatancy of their lies. The Republican party has stirred up their unsophisticated base, by lying through their pearly white rich people teeth. They have lied about death panels, birtherism, trickle down economics, non existent weapons of mass destruction, the demonization of minorities, intellectuals and immigrants, taxpayer relief that didn't relieve anyone but the 1%, the idea that any form of government services are bad for ordinary citizens, that rigid government control of our private lives by right wing preachers is liberty, and that corporations bribing Congressmen is democracy. 

All this time, I thought I was the only one to see through this. I thought no one else understood, that the Republicans were not only eroding our government, but also lying themselves into a very tight corner. But, this morning, I read a NEW YORK TIMES EDITORIAL, that explains it better than I can.

Minimum Wage in New Harmony, Indiana


About minimum wage in New Harmony, Indiana (and everywhere else, TOO!)

Democrats support higher minimum wages, because Democrats represent working people. Republicans support LOWER minimum wages, or NO minimum wage at all, because Republicans represent corporations and business owners.

I live in Indiana, a Tea Party Republican controlled state. Here in Indiana the minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. Washington State is a liberal Democratic state with a minimum wage of $9.19 per hour. Seattle, an ULTRA liberal Democratic city in Washington State, wants to increase the minimum wage inside their city to $15 per hour.

It boggles the mind, that ANY working class person would EVER vote for a Republican. The WHOLE idea of representative government is so that citizens may vote in their own self interest, but some how, Republicans convince many working people to vote AGAINST higher wages, better conditions and improved benefits.

Working people must wake up and smell the coffee!
