    This is a question worth asking and the answer is the most poignant and effective one I have heard yet. It's so simple a democrat can understand it. Is Mitt Romney responsible for Obamacare and the current state of the Massachusetts Health Care system?

    Dear Glenn Beck, I recently read the free Kindle sample of Broke, your latest effort to contribute to the pubic dialogue regarding the direction of our nation. Your advice is timely and necessary, if somewhat obvious. You have successfully established, with historical examples, that debt is bad, that having money is preferable to not having money, and moreover, that it really sucks that our country no longer has any money. With these three points I stand behind you one hundred percent, even if I wasn't quite willing to buy the remaining ninety-five percent of your book. As you advise your...
  • Zot! Auto Bailout Prevented Loss of Over 1.4 Million Jobs (Your Check Is In The Mail)

    Study says auto bailout saved 1.4 million jobs By Ed Brayton 11/18/10 7:15 AM A new study by the Center for Automotive Research in Ann Arbor concludes that the bailout of General Motors and Chrysler in 2009, with $85 billion in taxpayer money going to the two companies to help them survive the restructuring process of managed bankruptcies, saved 1.4 million jobs. The Detroit News reports: Most of the jobs — 1.14 million — were saved in 2009, during the low-point of the industry’s severe downturn. But another 314,400 were saved in 2010, the Center said Wednesday. “The government intervention...

    A group of House Democrats has released a letter to Republican congressional leaders calling on them to announce which of their members will be forgoing their congressional benefit health insurance (which is subsidized by the government) in light of their party's opposition to health care reform overhaul legislation. "If your conference wants to deny millions of Americans affordable health care, your members should walk that walk," four Democrats write in the letter, which is addressed to Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell and House Republican leader John Boehner. "You cannot enroll in the very kind of coverage that you want for...

    Recent unsettling revelations would indicate that, more and more, the US Chamber of Commerce is working for foreign nationals and corporations. Big business has been sending American jobs to other nations for a long time. Our current Congress has tried several measures to stop the bleeding and to bring some of those jobs back to Americans.

Downright Right is somewhere for all ends of the political spectrum to engage in civil discourse.

  • George W Bush thinks Sarah Palin is 'unqualified'

    Mr Bush has allegedly told friends that Mrs Palin is not qualified to be president and criticises John McCain for picking her as his Running Mate in 2008 "Naming Palin makes Bush think less of McCain as a man," a Republican official close to Mr Bush told the New York Daily News. "He thinks McCain ran a lousy campaign with an unqualified running mate and destroyed any chance of winning by picking Palin." Mr Bush has allegedly been disparaging about Mrs Palin in the past. Matt Latimer, former special assistant to Mr Bush, wrote in a book released last year:...

    Hey gang- I am new here. I was looking for Conservative boards to post on during the election and they just weren’t very good. Someone told me about this site so I figured I’d check it out. I felt compelled to log-up after the Republicans took massive control of the US House this election. Like most of you I was over-joyed when the Democrats got swept out of Congress. But we have seen how the tea leaves (pun intended) change. The last two cycles the Republicans got waxed, we were losing seats in strong Conservative areas. That cycle is now...

    I will be staying at home tomorrow, I will not be voting. There, I've said it. I've done my research, and in my district there is nobody who I can stomach voting for. This time the lesser of two evils will not be getting my vote; the lesser of two evils is still an EVIL. I've read manifestos, written letters, been humiliated, ignored and belittled by fellow "conservatives", but nobody that I can possibly vote for has the b**ls to even whisper that our Dear Leader ought to follow the Constitution and prove his eligibility. This is no small matter,...

    No one seems to be sure exactly how many people packed the National Mall today for the Rally To Restore Sanity And/Or Fear, but there's one thing everyone can agree on: sanity and/or fear are extremely popular. MTV's spokesperson told the Washington City Paper's Mike Madden that 250,000 people came out to see Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert take the stage Saturday, while Viacom (the parent company of MTV and Comedy Central, home to Stewart's and Colbert's show) told the New York Times' Brian Stelter that "well over 200,000" were in.... At the rally itself, Mythbusters hosts Jamie Hyneman and...

    ...they do not seem to consider that the main reason why such questions are still being asked of him is because 1) we elected a perfect stranger, 2) if he practices his faith no one seems to see evidence of it, 3) he attended a church for 20 years that held to aberrant theology and in which he did not pay enough attention to catch the race bating and politicization 4) he besmirches the Bible whiles praising the Qur′an and on it goes...

    Can we assume that a bulk of the 450 to 500,000 illegals are living/sharing older one&two bedroom apartments with in low income districts? In Miami,it's common for illegals to be sharing one-bedroom apartments,often 5 to 10 living in one unit. And where do they get money? With a dire economy and housing market,what kind of work do they do? Are they committing armed robbery at convenient stores to support themselves? It's too bad no one in the Obama Administration seems to care that they are killing "Legal Americans" and getting away with it.
  • What happened to the Zot Party?

    When the Tea Party first started out, I was a enthusiastic supporter.. The Tea Party perfectly represented what my views are.. I'm a 100% fiscal conservative and I believe in small government on ALL issues. In the beginning, the Tea Party seemed to be such movement that would support candidates based on FISCAL issues. Initially, that was the case and people like Scott Brown have been elected. However, since then, it seems like the Tea Party Express and other Tea Party organizations have been hijacked by the social conservative wing of the GOP (i.e. Sarah Palin). Social issues were introduced...

    Mitt Romney Central ^ | 9-21-2010 | iwaswrong
    Somewhere along the line, the notion was adopted, mostly among liberal media but more recently among fellow conservatives, that Mitt Romney represents solely the moderate, ‘establishment’ core of the Republican party: the Bush loyalists; the staunch GOPers. I won’t deny that Gov. Romney’s appeal is wide, and it certainly may spread to the more moderate branch of our party, but I refudiate the absurd conception that his base of support exists only in that branch. I see obnoxious headlines all the time now that predict Romney’s demise, tracing it all back to how he’s the GOP’s supposed ‘next in line’,...

    In terms of gay marriage, Arizona's conservative image is about to take a hit -- that's according to a statistician who claims the trend in public opinion is shifting in favor of allowing gays to wed at a more rapid pace than ever. According to a study conducted by Hank Pellissier, a statistician at the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies, majority public support for gay marriage will be achieved in Arizona by 2015. In his report, Pellissier shows growing support for gay marriage by about 1 percent of the electorate per year in most states, including Arizona.... States like...

    Former McCain campaign manager Steve Schmidt tells Sam Stein of the Huffington Post why gay marriage is now a conservative cause: "There is a strong conservative case to be made in favor of gay marriage," former McCain campaign manager and fellow same-sex marriage fundraiser Steve Schmidt told the Huffington Post on Tuesday. "Marriage is an institution that strengthens and stabilizes society. It is an institution that has the capacity to bring profound joy and happiness to people and it is a matter of equality and keeping faith of one of the charters of the nation, the right to live your...

    When Bill Clinton moved to open the military to gays in 1993, the GOP and conservative Democrats led the effort to oppose gay rights. In 1996, Hawaii flirted with gay marriage and the GOP again led the charge against gay equality, culminating in the federal response known as the "Defense of Marriage Act". Flash forward fourteen years to the present. Gay marriage is ruled a federal right for the first time and the response from the GOP is… tepid. Not one nationally prominent elected official thought the issue was important enough to get worked up over.... Complicating matters for social...

    Together with my good friend and occasional courtroom adversary David Boies, I am attempting to persuade a federal court to invalidate California's Proposition 8—the voter-approved measure that overturned California's constitutional right to marry a person of the same sex. My involvement in this case has generated a certain degree of consternation among conservatives. How could a politically active, lifelong Republican, a veteran of the Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush administrations, challenge the "traditional" definition of marriage and press for an "activist" interpretation of the Constitution to create another "new" constitutional right? My answer to this seeming conundrum rests on...
