Lower corporate taxes, this is the mantra of the 'bought and paid for' republican party. Trickery used to gain votes from a dumbed down society. This while in reality transfering more weight onto the backs of the middle class and those who comparitively have nothing. User fees and higher infrastructure fees, add even more burden as the right wing off loads more financial responsibility on those who can least afford it.

Last Minute Plea to DNC.

I think speaking for most, non-corporate, Democratic People on the ground that failing to put Keith Ellison in charge of the DNC will be a death blow to this party. I'm 58 years old but I speak with many young people who could be the future of a vibrant Democratic Party -- or could go off in search of a new "Bull-Moose" party that will represent US and not the Al From corporate elite. Everything hinges on electing Ellison. Without Keith Ellison the message of corporate appeasement becomes a Loser. Please Make Keith Ellison Chair. Return to our FDR/JFK/LBJ Roots.

Can we Use Trump's War on Media to Break up & Trust Bust the Big Media Corps?

It would be playing with fire but is there a strategy we could use to our advantage to push Trump into breaking up the handful of big media corporations and restore some sanity to American News?

Voting Via Paper Ballots - Our Answer to Voter Suppression?

What to do?

What to do? Nothing? Watch another movie? Sure, that sort of response might have given Martin Luther King another year or two. And the White Rose Society...? Surely those folks ought to have gone to the movies instead. But there comes a time when the stench from the ovens...or does it? Maybe that time never comes in the land of the free and the home of the brave. That stench is wafting in from across the seas.

The RICH have come out of the SHADOWS

The rich have this century , come out of the shadows. Now powerful right wingers Americas traditional ruling class, openly use their money to push American politics to favor their will both politically and most importantly financially. Liberal wealthy pay lip service and but hang on to their cash, its no contest. The Koch brothers publicly told the world, they were prepared to spend 1000 million dollars of their own money this last election cycle to buy the election results they wanted.

White Elephant in room, Trumps mental state psychologist's warning of Gemini presidency

Yes Gemini has issues but we are to get our hands on the controls so we do not inflict others with our negative planetary influences. With Gemini there is a problem with lack of remorse for such inflictions, most Gemini's find this there only sense of humor. Take Clint Eastwood (Gemini) the only time Dirty Harry ever cracked a smile was telling informant he would put out on streets that he was a snitch, with no compunction.
