As I've written often, today's Republican Party has a tactic that they use regularly -- find your own weakness and level the same charge against Democrats.
This is the Hillary Clinton that Republicans are so afraid of. The leader who is so well versed on the issues that she can speak about complex topics, not speak down to people, yet still have them understand what she is talking about.
When an antiquated economic theory is refuted by data, we must go with the data, and also trust our instincts. What's your gut tell you about the potential impact of raising the federal minimum wage from $7.25 to $10 per hour?
At this point, the field of candidates for the Republican presidential nomination is wide open. Governor Chris Christie's plight may not have altered the outcome of the Republican presidential nominating process, but it sure has led to another major traffic jam.
If Rand and the GOP bring back a now 40-year-old Lewinsky and Bill's moral failings to campaign against Hillary, they will play into the Democratic distraction game.
It was a speech mainly geared to the base of the party and reinforced the reasons many of us believe it is crucial that we elect more Democrats. But it was also a speech to the middle class about moderation and how the government can help people.
Before you go making such claims about "what all the statistics are saying" these days, there are a few you didn't mention that I'd like to bring to your attention.
I get it, Christie isn't Republican-sexy enough. But he's your best player. We've been over the math and Ronald Reagan isn't walking through that door. And if he did you'd probably call him a RINO too for compromising with Tip O'Neill.

On the 50th anniversary of the War on Poverty, many Americans are still operating under the assumption that people choose to be poor and unemployed, that they'd rather be lazy than rich, that they can afford the basic necessities of life. But the numbers tell a different story.
Government does a lot to stand in the way of the poor. Getting the government out of the way is at least as important as resource transfer.
If millennials don't have a progressive/libertarian presidential candidate to vote and volunteer for in 2016, you can be sure we'll run one of our own down the line.
In trying to achieve their reckless goal of demolishing government, Republicans have hurt far too many Americans. Alternatively, under the correct circumstances, government should be able to help grow the economy.
Every year millions of Americans make resolutions. These are essentially to-do lists, most of which never stick, which is why each year I make a to-don't list. It's much easiest and more satisfying. By setting expectations low, I never let myself down, just like our government.
The same Republicans who slashed jobless benefits also recently cut food stamps, taking food out of the mouths of children, causing incredible and unnecessary suffering. This was not only callous and mean-spirited, it may also turn out to be politically stupid.
