Re: “VOTE! (if you can)

"Republicans have suddenly discovered how popular and important health care is to the voting public."

Republicans have known this all along and have long advocated health care reform. The Unafforable Care Act (Obama Care) was what they opposed and for very good reasons.

Re: “VOTE! (if you can)

"You are so dishonest... You should run for office as a democrat!"

After voting 70 times to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and celebrating how they gutted it with their tax bill, Republicans have suddenly discovered how popular and important health care is to the voting public. So they are now loudly proclaiming to their constituents how they will protect people with pre-existing conditions, even as they sue in federal court to have the pre-existing conditions clause knocked down.

I think, Mr. rightsavage, that you are the one who should run for public office, but as a Republican, not only because you are the one who is dishonest, but perhaps more importantly, you are delusional as well.

Re: “VOTE! (if you can)

Yes, Mr. rightsavage, I copied your comments to demonstrate how inane they were and how easily your own words could be turned against you. As for the Pussy-Grabber-in-Chief, I wrote he bragged about it. I never said he actually did it, (although I find your baseless assertion that it was a "joke" highly specious). Which means I did not lie about anything. You just have poor reading and poor reasoning skills.

George Bernard Shaw once said the problem facing a liar is not that no one will believe him, but he cannot believe anyone else. In other words, your gratuitous accusations say more about you than they do about me.

Re: “VOTE! (if you can)

There is only one politician who bragged about grabbing pussy and he never apologized and never stepped down from office.

Maybe you should not vote, Mr. rightsavage. Your brain is scrambled with rightwing propaganda. Your mind is poisoned. You need to think for yourself and stop with the talking points. I would think you are a Russian bot but they, at least, have some intelligence, even if it is only artificial.

Re: “VOTE! (if you can)

this is not a time for apathy, VOTE. the repubs are making it difficult as they can but we must persist and get to the polls. we must have checks and balances to control the lying cheeto.

if the p@$$y grabber in chief has not affected you world, he soon will guaranteed.
they are going after your health care after giving a tax give-away to the rich...
they are going after a women's right to choose after putting a sexual assaulter on the supreme court in a rushed confirmation process.
they are going after social security so you can never retire .

VOTE like your future depends on it... because it does!!!

Re: “Fresh hell: Subprime car loans

Mr. Josef Lewis, if you were truly "a reputable, legitimate & accredited lender" as you claim, you would pay to place an ad in the print version of the Independent, instead of abusing the privilege of using this free blog to save money as you hawk your dubious services. If you really want to treat us "with dignity and respect" you will leave us alone and not waste our time with your tiresome, and likely deceitful, commercial harangues.

Re: “Our Revolution is alive and well

Alexandria Ocasio won in a 50% hispanic district in a very low turnout primary misrepresenting herself as being raised in a working class area of the Bronx when she wasnt. She beat a Democrat so the seat she will get will still be blue like it was before.

Ben Jealous was the head of the NAACP. Not exactly an unknown.

A huge majority of Our Revolution candidates lost their elections all across the country from Texas to Colorado to Florida and on and on. Our Revolution is a blip on the map hopefully becasue the people behind it gave us Donald Trump and they'll do it again and again and again. Our Revolution's main goal is to subvert the Democratic Party whether they admit it publicly or not. I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of them switch their party affiliation after they get elected like Bernie Sanders does.

Re: “Smedley Butler and Wall Street’s attempted coup

Who were the Wall Street millionaires? Maybe naming them would be harmful to your career, or health! What happened to Smedley Butler? He died very suddenly of throat cancer, just before U.S. entered WW2. You have done a great service to this man by reminding people of bravery, most decorated U.S. serviceman ever, but you have only told half the story.

Re: “The Koch brothers’ plutocracy

King George and the British Monarchy's plutocracy sought to subjugate and enslave the American Colonists for their own aggrandizement. The American Colonists hazarded all that they possessed to cast off the yoke of tyranny to secure their liberty. Following the American Revolution the only aspect that truly changed was the plutocracy seeking to subjugate, exploit and enslave the American people no longer spoke with a British accent.

Our nation's history is a testimonial to the struggles of a free people to vanquish the spread of the tentacles of tyranny that continuously threaten to strangle the live from our once vibrant democracy. The plutocracy has throughout our history attempted to subjugate and enslave the American people by stealing their liberty and guaranteed equality of opportunity and representation.

What is political campaign financing but wealth used as a weapon of oppression to amplify the will of the wealthy and deny the will of we the people? The plutocracy is closer than ever to transforming we the people into a nation of wage slaves stripped of our liberty, our democracy and our Founding Principle of equality of opportunity and representation. Are we to meet our end bleating like sheep our secure our future as Americans as freedom loving Americans roaring like lions?

Re: ““Psychic” income instead of pay?

With any business, the "bottom-line" is usually more important than most of the rest. With large corporations, dealing with billions of dollars, and shareholders, the 'bottom-line' is the only line. The 1983 movie "Trading Places" has parts in there that show this to be very true and factual.
