    Monday Dec 15 | Townhall

    Among the journalistic takeaways from the late Congress' death frenzies is the equivocal plight of the two parties -- the grown-up deal makers in both cases squeezed by hardcore, do-it-our-way extremists.

    Over the last 48 hours, the newly elected majority Republican Congress and its leaders have found themselves deeply at odds with President Barack Obama , despite the Democratic Party's thorough thrashing at the polls a couple of weeks ago. The next Senate Majority Leader Sen.

    Nov 15, 2014 | OpEdNews

    Given the dangerous results of the recent election in the United States -- one that saw the Republicans, a right-wing party increasingly populated with neocon warmongers, reactionaries, and plutocrats, take control of both houses of Congress -- it might be time to take a look at a sober look at U.S. democracy.
