Conservative Blogger Erick Erickson: Obama Not a Christian in “Any Meaningful Way” (UPDATED)

Right wing stupidity heats up for the 2016 presidential election. Right wing blogger Erick Erickson tweeted, “I don’t think Barack Obama is a Christian.

That’s quite the opposite of the Republican Party’s belief. They...

GOP Presidential Hopeful Rand Paul: Most Vaccinations Should Be Voluntary

Twice failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney is gearing up for a third run for the White House. His new platform is to eradicate poverty in the U.S. Um, one problem.
