Thad Cochran Refuses To Debate Tea Party Challenger

“The best weapon of a dictatorship is secrecy, but the best weapon of a democracy should be the weapon of openness.” – Niels Bohr Hiding and secrecy are sometimes a necessity of the persecuted. Sometimes they are required for the greater good. In the majority of cases, however, hiding and secrecy are the tools of someone who has done, or is doing, something wrong. In these cases in which wrongs are being hidden, the only way to wage war is through exposure. The secrets must be pulled out into the Read more […]

Why Republican Cowards Despise Cruz

“Former Rep. Steven LaTourette is a member in the establishment’s war on the Tea Party. His deceptively named ‘Defending Main Street’ PAC is being financed primarily by Wall Street and labor unions, which have contributed at least 20% to the group’s fundraising haul.
