I found that the main reason why they didn't vote last year was simple: They couldn't see any difference between the candidates. When there is no difference between the candidates, Democrats don't vote, and Democrats lose.
State Sen. Ellen Roberts quickly went from being a rarity in Colorado, a great Republican hope to defeat Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet, to being just another common Colorado Republican implosion.
Please understand that, as consumers and Americans, you have more options and choices than you know. Celebrate your independence by not being led by current marketing and legislative processes that are not in your best interest or the interest of your family's health and well-being.
With the reauthorization of the absurd and dysfunctional NCLB, we have a chance to once again let teachers teach and let students learn. We have a chance to ignite their imaginations, encourage them to reach their full potential, and expand their world view beyond filling in bubble tests with a #2 pencil.
When it comes down to the freakiest of the freaky in the whole Republican field, Donald Trump is very hard to top. Trump not only is running for president, he's apparently on a mission to singlehandedly destroy his own Trump brand, forevermore.
A rocket can be fixed. A mindset has to be changed or those holding it made irrelevant.
President Obama not only expended his own "political capital" by pushing for fast-track but that of the Democratic Party too. He had a clear choice: either side with workers, environmentalists, consumers, and progressives -- or side with Wall Street, Big Pharma, Wal-Mart, and the Koch Brothers.
The United States has the technological imperative to lead on clean energy. We have the economic imperative to engage in job creation that is good for all of creation. We have the moral responsibility to protect our planet for future generations. And with the pope's encyclical, science and technology truly can be the answer to our prayers.
Conservatives candidates tend to stay conservative in office and progressives stick to their beliefs, too. Moderates pretty much stay moderate. But last week, we witnessed the exclamation point of a radical shift when U.S. Senator Mark Kirk cast the deciding vote to gut a critical climate measure.
Two days after the tragic church shooting in South Carolina, Senator Cruz made some comments about gun control that many felt was in poor taste. In the clip below, I ask him to explain. His answer might surprise you.
This so-called "trade" package is made up of 29 parts, with only five actually dealing with trade. Written in secrecy by 600 representatives of corporations and their allies, and shepherded by Michael Froman, our Trade Representative who came to this job straight from Wall Street -- has anyone ever heard of a conflict of interest in this administration?
It's been a rollercoaster week in the political world, beginning with Hillary Clinton shifting the gears of her campaign by holding her first big rally, which was immediately followed by the man we're going to call "Jeb! Bush!" finally officially announcing his own candidacy.
Obama and Congressional Republicans have few areas of agreement. Opponents of their shared trade agenda seek to make that list shorter. Anti-trade advocates should question whether they are either blinded by an idealized partisanship that can only lead to paralysis, or captured by special interests at odds with the general welfare.
The Pope, by the way, is not bringing religion to the debate; he is simply acknowledging that the science is overwhelming and compelling, and given that, there is a moral obligation to act.
Pentagon brass and their status quo supporters have engaged in a misinformation campaign claiming that New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand's Military Justice Improvement Act is unnecessary and will in fact be counterproductive.
Though his "bro with no ho" comment is the most recent uncomfortable remark made by Republican U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk from Illinois, the lawmaker is no stranger to political gaffes.
