"Inequality, whether political, economic, or social, violates our values as a nation." Equality needs protection. It will always be under attack by those who have more power. The free market will NOT enforce the protection of rights. It has to be told and constantly reminded by those we elect.

There was a tradition of not allowing black and whites, and, actually, other interracial couples from marrying. It was a tradition. It got swept aside. Why is this tradition better?

There is a correct side of history.

A large number of American teenagers live exactly like Michael Brown. Very few of them are shot in the head and left to bake on the pavement.
The “angelic” standard was not one created by the reporter. It was created by a society that cannot face itself, and thus must employ a dubious “morality” to hide its sins. It is reinforced by people who have embraced the notion of “twice as good” while avoiding the circumstances which gave that notion birth.

If gerrymandering clearly helps Republicans maintain the house, how does “both sides do it” rhetoric mean to dissenting conservative commenters?

John Boehner, the highest ranking Republican, is from a gerrymandered safe district in Ohio.

Gerrymandering is the core of the GOP strategy.

"Both sides do it" is the weakest comment you can make while we are in a present-time gerrymandered House.

Guns Everywhere: The Second Amendment Fanatics of Libertarianism

"It’s actually a bit worse than Mancuso suggests. The arms race between police departments and lawbreakers created an atmosphere of spectacularly lethal violence (even as violent crime rates actually went down) that made it easy for the gun lobby and its paymasters to argue that every single citizen needed to become his or her own police force, as heavily armed as the cops and robbers. ‘Army of One’ indeed. So we aren’t just witnessing the consequences of the ‘militarization of the police.’ It’s the militarization of America, which happens when you deliberately destroy the state monopoly on means of lethal violence…. [This is an] angle that libertarian folk like Rand Paul do not want to pursue: cops bulking up with military hardware as part of an arms race created by Second Amendment absolutism.” - Ed Kilgore

The NRA up-armed Americans. The result is that our police forces, in order to not be out-gunned, have uber-up-armed themselves. 

The police decry the militarization of criminals, but we don’t see police officers and sheriff deputies marching to Washington to demand gun control legislation. 

You can’t have it both ways.

This is precise horrible outcome you get when conservatives push their “ownership society”.
