US Domestic Politics

Discussion of US politics and their world impact.

The Bern is a long-term affliction. Call your legislators and demand they get infected.

When Sanders wins open primaries, the wave of progressive passion is undeniable. People are connecting the dots on how CORPservative Republicans and their billionaire backers have drained fairness, responsibility, and VALUING FAMILIES from a well-conceived model of government.

Co-ops In Health Care

There are some but try and find them. Naturally there is big time push back from corporate HC.

Start-up cash is a barrier to entry for co-ops in the insurance industry. Once established, they are more than competitive. It seems to me that progressives should be touting this solution to high cost insurance in the HC industry. Yet nobody, including Bernie, seems to be shouting to the heavens about this alternative. Government loans for start-ups?

75 Socialist Examples in USA today

Thom has done a rant covering America's socialism as adopted and each example is popular except with teaparty loons that want to privatize everything ie:USPS pension reg is unsustainable and will force Fedex/Ups to the fore. The party that hates regs uses them to destroy rather than benefit (fedex and ups pension plans are exempt).

An older Maher episode

hits on the title topics and Maher's assertion that people shouldn't have kids, or more than 1 or 2 kids.

I'll add another, I bet there are ignorant liberals, maybe even an intelligent conservative. I dunno about the latter.

Conservatives never did embrace voting rights for women and minorities. Paul Weyrich said it back in the 1980’s. The more people vote, the worse Republicans do in elections.

How to keep millennials streaming to ballot box if HRC is nominee. Hint: H Reid

This is what the Democratic Party should have the guts and foresight to do. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nev. is retiring in January. Imagine the ramifications if Bernie was to take over that roll, perhaps as early as Sept. while Hillary hits the campaign trail. Sanders can then call on his followers to RETURN THE SENATE to DEMOCRATIC CONTROL and make him MAJORITY LEADER.

Right-wing trickle-down Reaganomics doesn't work.

It doesn't work internationally, it doesn't work nationally, and it doesn't work at the state level.
