Eliminates Elections: Washington silent as Walker and WI GOP fast track slew of bills that dismantle Democracy.

You effectively eliminate elections when you remove any and all ability to prosecute election fraud.

This from the AFL-CIO. Please do not log me out of this website for posting Union initiatives.

Hillary will say whatever she has to to keep Foundation cash-cow relevant.

You can't auction of influence if you are not in an official capacity in Washington.

Phony Hillary will keep repeating Bernie's talking points until she wins and then she'll forget it all.

BEFORE 'MOVE TO AMEND' I WROTE (via Washington Post blog, circa 2009)

COMPLAIN ALL YOU WANT but real reform probably starts with a Constitutional
Amendment that seperates cash contributions (plus industry organized support)
from our electoral politics. The reality right now is that the large corporations (and
wealthy individuals) in effect have-a-lock on political power in Washington. And so
almost everything flows from that; Lawmakers must prioritize policy choices based

PETITION: “Every year, the Department of the Interior hands over vast areas of publicly-owned land to the fracking industry to be pillaged for corporate profit.”

Stop Taxpayers’ gifts to the fracking industry. Obama doesn’t provide plumbers, bakers, musicians, etc with what they need to make a living, so why should the People tolerate Obama giving Oil and Gas Frackers their “raw material” and factors of production?

The Iran Deal makes War More Likely. Where am I Wrong?

From what I can tell, nothing in the Iran deal prevents us from going to war with Iran. In fact, the deal itself, if violated by Iran, may even make it easier for us to go to war with Iran.
