Opinion: Single-Issue Voting Is Wrong In These Multi-Issue Times

Consider the economy, the job market, the recent horrendous occurrences in the Middle East before voting for a person because of his race, his social-issue promises, or any other rather selfish reasons.

Opinion: Republicans, Abortion and Lying

Opinion: Mitt Romney Lie-O-Rama Tour Continues

Romney might say he won’t restrict a woman’s right to choose, but his message is clearly coded for his rightwing base: you do not have to worry about the Supreme Court. Relax, I’m with you, but I’m running for president for Pete’s sake.

Opinion: The Greatest Tax Ever?

My insurance company spent too little on actual health care delivery so my family is getting a refund. If Obamacare is a tax, it’s the greatest tax ever.
