"2-party system is more effect than cause of structural division"

Given all the talk about constitutional flaws and 2-party oligarchy, I figured it was worth posting this article written by Julio Huato about 10 years ago: Reflections on Strategy

One excerpt:

It's Time to Repeal "Godwin's Law"

It is time to repeal "Godwin's Law."

People of good conscience need to start using "the N word" - Nazi - when talking about Trump and the Republicans, because the comparison is apt, and the threat is real.

A New democratic position on the military, speak softly and carry a big stick

Should the dems start talking about keeping the military at the status quo, but at the same time put out the message we want a strong military that protects Americans and their interest at home and abroad ,but state we need to raise taxes to pay for it.

Debbie Wasserman Schultz does not run the DNC, she is the spokeperson

Debbie Wasserman Schultz is a talking head controlled by vast amount of wealth and power that is behind the DNC. She may look like she is making the decisions, but she's just a mouthpiece and frequent punching bag. If you removed DWS from the Chairperson tomorrow, the policies wouldn't change one inch... the decisions are coming from the vast monetary network that is behind pushing Hillary Clinton for the next NeoCon president.

Why should I vote for Bernie??

Can anyone give a good reason why a middle aged guy like myself should vote for Bernie Sanders? I would say I'm upper middle class, have four children. Although I disagree, i can at least understand the attraction to Bernie by college kids. He has succeeded in convincing them that they are all victims. It wasn't their fault that they borrowed all that money for a useless degree, the rich don't pay their fair share, yada yada yada. I get that. All these million student March clowns feel the world owes them something even though they have never contributed jack or squat. Anyone?

Unlike the Republicons, Bernie Sanders Views on ISIS Show Good Sense

I know we have political deception season now in the U.S. with the upcoming presidential primaries and next year's election. There will be a lot of LIES and deception from the Republicon party and sometimes also the Demorat party, but we have at least one HONEST person running as an actual Democrat, who has previously spent a number of years as an independent Congressman and Senator. I am seeing some of the deception now pertaining to Bernie Sanders views on ISIS. Here is a link to his actual views which Bernie has stated verbally.

Bernie Sanders Sweeps Online Polls After Winning Second Democratic Debate

Here is information on polls pertaining to the recent democratic debate. According to these online polls Bernie won the debate by a very high amount of over 80%.

Newest refugee lie?

The newest lie going around in the circle of people I know is that in order to pay to bring the 10k refugees to the U.S. is crazy. They are saying that the government is cutting military pay, vet benifets, and social secruity in order to come up with the money. Crazy right? Anyone else hearing this?

My thought is that it's the perfect lie for the republicans. On one hand they get to cut all that money and blame it on liberals and the refugees. Cause enough outrage and the right wind can get the support they need to keep refugees out. Jerk move..

Al Quida Encourages Jihadists To Go To Gunshows!

I wonder how many such guns Al Quida and ISIS sympathizers have already purchased.

If Paris happens anywhere here in the US... does anyone think any Gun Nut or right wing politician will think twice about closing the private sale loophole?


They'll probably blame the victims for not being armed themselves.

DEMOCRATS are Totally FRAGMENTED and Dysfunctional !

I identify as a Democrat and have been feeling this frustration with this Party for quite awhile.

The current state of the Democratic Party and their Messaging machine is like a totally fragmented and disorganized PC hard drive! Frankly, I wonder how any clear messaging is getting out at all !

Look at how simple Trumps messaging of his brand is working. He has simple truckers hats with his slogan and says it ALL the time!

New York is more than just Wall Street. Hillary wanting to expand the AUMF is a BFD.

The strangest part of, "I represented Wall Street during 9/11" is the obvious followup that never happened: Hillary voted for the Iraq war on shaky evidence despite nation-wide and world-wide protests - even France denouncing the war causing congress to pass a bill renaming french fries to freedom fries. So was she just representing wall street when she voted to send her constituents to war which resulted in 191 deaths of New Yorkers?

Why the Kochs Really Embraced Criminal Justice Reform...

It looks like the Koch brothers have scammed us once again.

When news first came out that Charles and David Koch -- the Koch brothers -- were supporting criminal justice reform efforts in Congress, many of us thought, "Wow, they're actually doing something good for once."

And for good reason, too.
