The Republican Party tries anything and everything to stand in the way of progress, and especially if it's coming from that scary black man occupying the White House. Some of their actions have been downright treasonous, but no Democrats would dare charge them with that.
Practically all of our "leaders" are too timid to stand up and do the right thing. They all seem so beholden to special interest money that it stifles their impulses.
Something has to change. This election cycle is going to see a flood of money like never before.
The greatest threat to America? Republicans

- bird flu
- climate change
- North Korea nuclear missiles
- psychopathic gunmen wrapped in the Confederate flag.
Again, none of the above: Huckabee was referring to the just-announced nuclear deal with Iran. He wasn't alone. It appears all 17 Republican presidential hopefuls believe the treaty painstakingly negotiated by the US, Russia, China, Britain and France is not merely not worth the paper it's written on, it's positively catastrophic.
It will - Huckabee again - "wipe Israel off the map". It's worth pointing out that Israel, itself often accused of being a terrorist state, has a nuclear arsenal whereas Iran doesn't and, by virtue of this treaty, won't have for at least a decade.
