$3.8 trillion budget sets up election-year fight with Republicans

The US faces a revenue crisis and a war spending crisis. The Congress, a millionaires' club, isn't about upholding the constitution but maintaining plutocracy and crony capitalism. Without the social contract, we become wolves against one another. The social contract and government of the people should ensure that everyone shares in the productivity gains.

"1.8 MILLION dead people still registered to vote in the U.S." ... so republicans should raid cemetery in voter fraud search ?

The ALEC written voter-id laws that are an epidemic accross our country may end up depriving millions of the right to vote due to 'inadequate' identification.

Paul Weyrich deserves some of the credit (or blame) for this ... ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFIYS8xb-QY ) .

The militarization of the state of Arizona

The state of Arizona is arming up. Last year – alongside a slew of other controversial pieces of legislation – the Arizona state legislature passed a law to establish an armed, volunteer state militia separate from the National Guard. According to the legislation – the new militia could be called on for “any…reason the governor considers to be necessary.”

I've got several questions about Greece

What is the pros and cons of Greece defaulting on their loans?

How would it affect this country?

How in the hell did they get to this point anyway?

Certaintly this has been going on long before the crash of 2008?

How come every leader that seems to be appointed over in that part of the world seems to be an Ex Goldman Sachs Employee? Are those bastards really that crooked?

Thanks.
