Meet the Freshman Class

by Vince

I have only followed Rand Paul to a certain degree. Being a libertarian, he doesn’t agree with the Civil Rights Act or the government stepping in with the BP spill or any other kind of government intervention that works to help the environment,¬†alleviate¬†racist conditions, or, you know, work for the common good.

Fact Check: Toomey and Sestak

by Vince

Gus Cileon writes in to the Philadelphia Inquirer:

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Pat Toomey has been inundating the media with ads condemning Democrat Joe Sestak for voting for the “death tax.” The ads state that the government will take up to half of your assets when you die. Inaccurate and partial information is the same as not telling the truth.This tax is really an inheritance tax, which applies only to estates of more than $1 million, and there are further exclusions that can be used to reduce this tax. To act as if all Americans are subject to this tax is just a cheap scare tactic. Why should we vote for someone who so blatantly misleads?
