On guns, on global warming, on economic inequality, on taxation,  on torture, on Guantanamo, on gay rights, on regulations, on green energy, on health care, and on many other issues, the Republicans ignore facts, common sense, and basic human decency.

This is not to say that the Dems are perfect; far from it. But the extremism and shameless stupidity of Republicans are a threat to the world and the economy.

What’s scary is that millions of Americans not only fall for the Republican story but actively support it.
