The Political Joe is a place to discuss the issues that really matter to the everyday working-class Americans. Far too often the issues that impact us most are overlooked. Income inequality increases by the minute, workers’ rights are constantly under attack, 1 in 6 children live in poverty – but what is actually being said by the media about these issues? What are politicians doing to remedy these travesties? Here you will find honest discussions on these issues as well as topics such as politics, economics, and current events.

These past few years have been rough. Please join in on the discussion – let’s make the world a better place!
