Do Liberals and Democrats Demonize Wealth?

A recent Left Call commenter said, “What I totally don’t understand about you liberals, and Democrats in general, is how you so easily demonize the wealthy. I just don’t get it. You think that the Republican Party is just for the wealthy? That Conservatives are rich people alone?”

A Letter to Liberals and Democrats Who Didn’t Vote in 2010

If you are a liberal or a Democrat and you didn’t vote in the 2010 midterm election then you only have yourself to blame if you are concerned about all the new voter ID laws that have passed in Republican controlled states. According to the Melissa Harris-Perry show and the Brennan Center for Justice, at least 180 bills were introduced in 41 states to restrict voting rights since the beginning of 2011.

PA Voter ID Law Will “Allow Governor Romney To Win The State” According To Mike Turzai

Liberals and progressives already know voter suppression is the goal of the strict new voter ID laws passed by Republicans in many states. Republicans say the laws are needed because of voter fraud. This is of course bullshit because there is no voter fraud problem. No, the real goal is voter suppression. Republicans don’t care to win over minorities, instead they will do their best to make sure minorities (who overwhelming support Democrats) are unable to vote this November. Old, white Republicans see the writing is on the wall. They know how the demographics are shifting in this country. Instead of embracing change and trying to gain support of minorities, especially African-Americans, Republicans are instead doubling down on racism, bigotry and well, just plain old being an asshole.

Millennials And Liberal Democrats Less Likely To Believe In God

A recent Pew survey reveals that 68% of Millennials, defined as those born from 1981 on, say “I never doubt the existence of God”, which is a decline of 15 points in 5 years. The “Silent” generation, those born between 1928 and 1945, did not see any change when it comes to belief in God in the past 5 years. Although I’m betting you could poll that older generation on any number of issues and rarely find much change in only 5 years.
