Rick Santorum Attacks the Separation of Church and State

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

The ignorant (if not moronic) right wing is stirring up fears and spreading distortions about the First Amendment again. Rick Santorum, for example, has said that the separation of church and state is NOT absolute. I beg to differ and so would have Thomas Jefferson who described […]

The GOP is Not a Political Party; It’s a Crime Syndicate and Kooky Cult

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

The International Cultic Studies Association lists the defining characteristics of a ‘cult’. I fully agree with the ‘list’ and also the assertion that the GOP meets most of several atttributes, perhaps all characteristics that define the word ‘cult’.

Here is the list as ‘published’:

Rick Perry’s Latest ‘Enrich the rich’ Plan!

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy Texas Gov. Rick Perry unveiled his ‘tax and spend’ plan, officially called his “cut, balance and grow” plan. It is more properly the CUT TAXES for the ruling elite; balance if you can walk a tight rope between poverty on one side and rabid republican […]

How the GOP Will Bring About the End of Capitalism

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy The GOP gets away with a big lie! The GOP has convinced millions that the GOP is the party of smaller government coupled with smaller debts and deficits. The fact is: EVERY Democratic regime at least since World War II has presided over smaller debts and deficits […]

A Case for Ending the Current Method by Which Presidents are ‘Selected’

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

The office of President is connected to the electorate ‘metaphorically’ but not in fact. The very method by which the President is elected is complicated by party machines, primaries, state election procedures and most notably an antiquated and completely useless ‘Electoral College’.

As long as there is […]

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy Look up some basic contract law! Social Security is a contract between the government and the people! The GOP wants to BREAK that contract; the GOP wants to ‘award’ BIG BANKSTERS with your monies! 

Boehner’s actions –walking out of budget negotiations, debt-ceiling talks — are a […]

A Citizen’s First Defense Against Tyranny

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

Over the years, I have had the good fortune to have met some interesting people, many of whom I considered to be mentors. Many of them probably never knew how much I had learned from them. Some were famous but many, many more were not but the […]

A Free People?

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

Democrats are unhappy. I daresay most criticism of President Obama these days is from the left wing –not the GOP! Much of this criticism of both party and the President is misplaced. As old West Texans might have said: “They would complain if they were being a […]

It’s Time for Rush Limgaugh to Go!

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

Free speech is not free! It is paid for with responsibility! Rush Limbaugh, however, has made a career of “…yelling fire in a crowded theater” when, in fact, there is NO fire! Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.’s decision re: Eugene Debs means that Rush has routinely exceeded […]

The Winter of Our Political Discontent or How and Why You Only have TWO Choices, Two Parties

by Len Hart, The Existentialist Cowboy

Why is the GOP where it is? Simply –GOP fascists turned out!! Why are the Democrats where they are? Don’t ask a Democrat! You are likely to get a denial that he/she is a Democrat –rather, a ‘progressive’! Don’t bother asking what a ‘progressive’ is. But if […]
