Write to your Republican Senator

If you have a Republican Senator write a letter telling them to do their job. We have a right that the Constitution is followed. The President has done his job and nominated a candidate to the Supreme Court. Now it is time for the Senators to do their job.

This is What Democracy Look Like

Democracy is about depth of participation, not about winning and losing. And something is happening this election cycle that is opening up a participatory consciousness I haven’t felt, at least at the national level, in four decades.

How Bernie can win every debate and every election from now on, with guaranteed certainty.

Bernie can win every debate and every election from now on, but only if he decides to clearly demonstrate he will accountable to the American people. All he needs to do is to sign the pledge of honor provided on my web site, and substitute monthly town hall meetings with televised monthly state of the union meetings with Congress.

Why Trump IS A Real Threat

I was going to respond in loganonenation's thread to disagree with his claim the GOP would become a backwater party unable to win presidential elections. I've seen enough of such The GOP Is Dead articles over the years to know it's nonsense. After all, many believed this when Goldwater bombed out... only to have Nixon win 4 years later. Many were saying the same after Obama was elected. Today the House and Senate are held by the GOP. Sure part of the problem is ineptitude and incompetence on the part of Dems... but that's another story.

Trumps 1st attack Ad on Hillary

as i've been posting for 5 weeks now, i'm not a fortune teller, but here it is.
1. hillary has never been ATTACK Ad so the current polls of her beating Trump 8% are meaningless. i said there is too much material out there in hillarys own words showing her corruption and lies... wait until the "factual" attack ads start running and the american public will quickly sour on hillary and trump will win.

Onion? or not?

Caitlyn Jenner says she wants to be Ted Cruz's trans ambassador and he should call her. "I think he would be good for women's issues" "but I don't know how". Did she hit her head in the pole vault during Bruce's decathalon? Cruz's endorsement preacher wants girl scout leaders killed because girl scouts and their cookies promote homosexuality. Another nutter thought Teletubbies' Tinky Winky and Sponge Bob promote gay lifestyles too.

If Hillary wins, we MUST convert the Bernie revolution into an antiwar movement!

Hillary and her NeoCon backers will be starting WWIII promptly as soon as she is elected. Her centrist/liberal flunkies will all be rah rah rah let's GO TO WAR!!!

Yet Hillary isn't the problem...

Obama's centrist/liberal flunkies all 100% rubber stamped everything he did with ZERO introspection. When progressives opposed these policies, we were ridiculed, diminished and called "Republican", "conspiracy theorists" and "fake" Democrats.

The Internet, Presidential Candidates' positions guide

The Internet, Presidential Candidates' positions guide

Hillary "Called for censoring social media to fight terrorism: “You’re going to hear all of the usual complaints, you know, freedom of speech, etc. But if we truly are in a war ... we’ve got to shut off their means of communicating.”

Bernie "Sanders opposed PIPA, saying, “It is absolutely essential that the Internet remain open and free of censorship or the chilling effects that result in self-censorship.”

you can guess where the Fascist GOP stand.

What Is a Good Society?

From Rod Dreher: http://www.theamericanconservative.com/dreher/what-is-a-good-society/

Excerpts:

What's The Strategy To Unwind "Free Trade" Agreements like NAFTA?

​I'm not in any way a fan of Dodd Frank but it includes ways to unwind large but failing banks. Do we have any similar plans for unwinding or negating Free Trade agreements like NAFTA?

Or are they traps?

Bernie will win!

Bernie is ahead of where Obama was at this point.

Republicans have Rejected the Republican Party

Now that John Kasich and Ted Cruz have dropped out, it’s pretty much official: Donald Trump is the 2016 Republican nominee for president.

The pundits never saw this coming, but they should have. The Republican Party has been running a scam on its base for decades now, and voters were bound to discover this scam sooner or later.
