Robert Copeland resigned under pressure but that doesn't mean that the GOP will win or even wants to win its war on racism.
As much as it pains me to make this statement, it hurts more knowing that the Republican Party is destroying America through its histrionics and prede...
The Titanic was promoted as 'unsinkable.' It was touted as a symbol of technological and industrial might... until it crashed into a giant ice cube with catastrophic consequences. Which brings me to today's Republican Party.
