A strange quirk of the New Hampshire primary - this year a wholly Republican affair - is that it is a semi-open primary, and one in which write-in candidates are permitted, and in which delegates ...
|Who voted for the tax increase of 2011?
The Republican middle-class hostage crises, wherein the Republican party is holding a proverbial knife to the throat of the middle-class taxpayer in order to extract tax cuts for the rich, may be ...
|Judges, jobs, and justice denied
Astoundingly, the Republicans have made it a point of pride that they are suppressing job growth in one important sector -- that of federal judges. Through procedural roadblocking, the Senate ...
