News Summary
Cutting thru the Propaganda
Since the New Deal, Republicans have been on the wrong side of every issue of concern to ordinary Americans; Social Security, the war in Vietnam, equal rights, civil liberties, church- state separation, consumer issues, public education, reproductive freedom, national health care, labor issues, gun policy, campaign-finance reform, the environment
and tax fairness. No political party could remain so consistently wrong by accident.
The only rational conclusion is that, despite their cynical "family values" propaganda, the Republican Party is a criminal conspiracy to betray the interests of the American people
in favor of plutocratic and corporate interests, and absolutist religious groups. 

Why? Because they're evil GOP bastards!
Exposing the ugly truth
about the Republican Party's diabolical plot to replace constitutional democracy with an oligarchic
fascist theocracy...

It's the only rational explanation!
Why does the Republican Party zealously pursue policies so obviously counter to the best interests of ordinary Americans? 

It can only be
because they're...

Human-Shaped Disaster, Extortionist, & GOP Governor of Maine
Gov. Paul LePage
In a contest for the nation's worst governor, Maine's Republican Governor Paul LePage is definitely among the front-runners. While not as pretend-stupid as Louisiana's Jindal, or as sneakily devious as Wisconsin's Walker, or as fiscally destructive as Kansas' Brownback, LePage has compensated for these shortcomings with an over-abundance of mean-spirited bellicosity -- earning a slot among the worst of the worst Republican governors. After winning a plurality in a three-way race that divided liberals and independents -- twice -- LePage has pushed for elimination of Maine's income and estate taxes which will further shift the tax burden to the poor and middle class, seen the percentage of Mainers with health insurance decline, appointed an industry lobbyist to oversee environmental enforcement, and associated himself with "sovereign citizen" nutjobs. Le Page seems to despise the people he's supposed to be serving -- and the feeling now seems to be mutual. After LePage extorted a school by threatening to withhold state funds if Democratic Speaker of the Maine House Mark Eves assumed a job at the school, a bi-partisan group began preliminary impeachment proceedings. However, LePage's precarious political position did not prevent Chris Christie from soliciting or accepting LePage's endorsement for president -- the first endorsement of any candidate by a sitting governor of the 2016 campaign.
