From day one of the Obama administration, Mitch McConnell and his "patriotic" country of old white men (with the exception of John Boehner) gathered together like a meeting of the Dons and made it their one single purpose to block anything that our new president was going to try to do by any means necessary.
The alt right movement is an insurgent, racially tinged one that seeks to dismantle traditional conservative institutions to provide a political voice to an array of exiles on the far right.
Neither a narcissist nor compulsive liar shares your pain. The narcissist does not feel your pain because there is no ability to empathize. The compulsive liar does not feel pain over deceiving you.
Opportunists like Trump are here to take down this generation. And their job is easy. They have to deal with the usual suspects, those who were born politicians, the same ones who were raised by the system to serve, protect, and preserve it.
Here's the thing I can't believe you don't realize: I don't really care about you! Honestly, I don't! Do you see how I live?! A gold-covered mansion in the sky...private jumbo jets...helicopters. Do you ever think that, maybe, just maybe, I'm trying to limit my contact with you "little people" as much as humanly possible?
Government touches our lives in many ways---at the federal, state, and local level. But those ways in recent years have not been altogether good, even including, sorry to say, during the Democratic administration of Barack Obama.

The two wings of the Sanders Machine are snarling at each other. Accusations, resignations, fear and loathing. This isn’t a spat about persona...

About 45 million Americans, or just under 15 percent of the country's population, are living below the federal poverty line. The official poverty line...
Today, the Earth got a little hotter, and a little more crowded. ...
If the media needs to acknowledge Trump's "changed" demeanor, it must also give Hillary equal time to express her convictions. Only then will there be an opportunity for the clearest comparison.

Fake hair versus email shiftiness, a giant wall versus open arms to illegal immigrants. I'm usually cynical towards politics (everyone in the business is a crook), but even more so because of the candidates I'm forced to vote for.
This fall, we are faced with the question of who will become president. And equally important - who can vote?
Although she is unlikely to remember us, Hillary helped changed our lives forever.
