Quote of the moment:

The Bill of Rights stands in tatters. We measure our national debt in
trillions. We're so deeply in bed with various murderous dictators
around the world I can't even say the words "Land of the Free, Home of
the Brave" with a straight face any more. We're torturing prisoners. Our
cops are shooting unarmed, handcuffed, face-down pleading men in the
back. Texas has disappeared Thomas Jefferson from their civics
curriculum. We're so afraid of terrorists we think strip-searching
everyone is a good idea. I routinely, day in and day out, hear my fellow
citizens argue that women with terminal breast cancer should be left to
die in the street, and that only children who can afford it should have
access to health care.

You may notice a large number of "liberal" leaning organizations linked to above. I am not a liberal, though I share many progressive values with them. I am not a conservative, though I share some libertarian principles with them. I don't belong to any political party, not even the libertarians or greens. I could be called a non-partisan, although "anti-partisan" might be a more fitting term, because I believe that allying yourself with any one group and not voting your values is destroying this country and dividing the citizenry against itself. Labels are misleading and deceptive. I am for facts and against abuse, especially abuse of power. The major reasons most of the links are to "liberal" places above is that a) Republicans are currently in power b) Politicians (the majority of which are Republican) are abusing their power on scales not seen since Nixon, and c) the sources above tend to be open, honest, truthful, more encompassing, and more civil in tone than any "conservative" "watchdogs" I could find (such as Accuracy in Media and Media Research).

To sum things up: I'm not focusing on conservative wrongs; I'm focusing on egregious and numerous wrongs, no matter who perpetrated them. I don't care what political party someone belongs to; if they lie to the country (whether about reasons to go to war or a blow job), they should not hold a public office, now or ever again.

If you would like to find out whether your chosen political party really is representing your values, try some of the following links:
