The bills that Congress reject are as informative as the ones it does. Reviews of all the legislation that meet their fate in government halls.
Prelude To Revolt
America, from sea to shining sea has always been a beacon of hope and salvation for troubling souls from every corner of the globe. For over one hundred years the United States stood for as the land of equal opportunity. Where anyone could aspire to achieve a better quality of life. For all those who are willing to work hard the steps of the upward mobility ladder were free to climb. A far cry from the reality of today. The steps of the upward mobility ladder are now almost impossible to find, cluttered under an avalanche of false hopes and insurmountable obstacles.
Morality Lost in the Age of Decadence
We have seen it on our TV screens, we hear it on the radio, we continue to witness it in the movies and we have experienced it in person. The age of decadent, amoral behavior has redefined our nation. This transformation has rendered the United States incapable of healing the wounds that have divided this nation.
Expanding The National Service
If you are a young American thinking about what to do next with your life after finishing high school or college, and you’re interested in serving greater causes than your own personal goals and pursuits, you should seriously consider becoming a volunteer. You may have your own preferences when it comes to serving but what matters is that you choose to do something to give back to those in your country and those around the world who are less fortunate than yourself. Your career goals, your family, and even your friends will understand if you choose to put things on hold for a few years, especially if you’re in your 20s still. You may like your volunteer service so much that you choose to make a career out of it too.
Scottish Nationalism. Living In a Tartan Bubble
During the debate on whether Scotland should be put through the torment of another independence referendum, the news that there had been a terrorist attack in London, close to Westminster came through the debating chamber of the Scottish Parliament.
Well Ain't It Just What We Liberals Told ‘Em?
I’m sure that along with me you’ve been wondering why primarily white Southern and rural voters would ignore their own self-interest? I mean self-interest is what keeps us all alive. Most of us anyway want to live, no matter how wretched our lives are.
Parents Of Transgender Kids Request Meeting With President Trump
Parents of eight transgender children from across America want a meeting with President Trump, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and other key government officials sooner, rather than later.
What is a Joint Session of Congress?
As President Trump addresses his first Joint Session of Congress only months after stepping into the presidency, the American people are allowed an insiders look into a tradition which began in the 18th century. While Trump's Presidency has been rocked by many controversial, game changing moments, for many, this return to traditional normalcy almost comes as a relief.
Why The UK Needs Electoral Reform
The 2015 General Election came and went, delivering a Conservative majority government with Labour failing to engage the electorate as a credible alternative and ended up having less seats than they did after the 2010 General Election, which must have been disappointing and shocking in equal measure to the Labour leadership. The Scottish National Party (SNP), as predicted, swept through Scotland gaining a landslide, winning 56 out of 59 seats. Nicola Sturgeon's bold conviction and a presentation of a new progressive form of politics tuned in to the social beating heart of Scotland. The Liberal Democrats faced the wrath of the electorate, getting pulverised with only 8 seats being won with heavy ministerial losses such as Vince Cable (Business Secretary) and Danny Alexander (Treasury). In many constituencies they were behind both the UK Independence Party (UKIP) and the Greens. The explosion of the UKIP movement failed to make an impact on the Commons with only one seat being won whilst Nigel Farage failed to win South Thanet. This, in particular, brought the issue of electoral reform back into the public consciousness.
What Would Happen if Trump Cracked Down on Marijuana?
On February 23rd 2017, Sean Spicer, President Donald Trump's Secretary of State, took to the podium to declare that the government had every intent on cracking down on recreational marijuana use.
Arizona Legislation Clamps Down on Protesters
Information in an article in the Arizona Capitol Times has revealed that the Arizona State Senate has voted to move forward with a bill that will give police new powers, including being able to arrest and seize the assets of people who are involved in a protest that may turn violent. What has made many question this bill is the notion that, if passed in the House, it would give police the power to arrest people while a protest is still peaceful. Peaceful protests are currently protected as a 1st amendment right under the clause of freedom of speech and freedom of assembly.
Voter ID Laws Are Disenfranchisement Politics As Usual
Three to five million illegal votes and Jeff Sessions our new attorney general, the voter fraud issue is going on full alert in the Trump Administration. But the concern amounts to nothing more than the Republicans taking out their playbook and putting disenfranchising politics in full gear. Their constituency eager to engage and vilify, historical facts demonstrate that political parties do not steal elections by getting random people to vote twice.
Donald Trump is the New Herbert Hoover
I didn’t like the Obama presidency. I never respected the man. I thought he was a tyrant who started a global terrorist campaign to assassinate people who he thought might be guilty of a crime, a warmonger who went along with whatever the neoconservatives the Democratic Party put in his administration wanted, and that he generally didn’t care about the lives of the foreigners he killed. I thought his administration brought the economy more toward the favor of corporations than to an actual laissez-faire system. His healthcare plan was a complete failure which was acknowledged by both parties until the last two weeks. I thought his social policy was terrible. He didn’t fight for gays until it was politically feasible which shows that he is a coward. He did not fight for drug users. He tried to pressure Congress to take people’s gun rights away while not actually addressing the major crime problems of gang violence caused by drug prohibition. He never even addressed the link between SSRI’s and the people who commit mass shootings in our nation.
