A popular third party “We The People” can create.

By holding Social Security inviolate.

Strengthen Medicare, America's other treasure.

Should be added for good measure.

Taxing the rich is another popular reform.

That can be added to the third party platform.

Closing tax loopholes for special interests.

Should be added to the platform with the rest.

Another popular issue that is ignored.

Add to the platform ending our three wars.

Other budget solutions are available.

That should be on the table.

Taxing Wall Street financial transactions.

Would be considered most reasonable actions.

End tax subsidies for special interests

Corporate welfare should pass all tests.

Reciprocal tariffs to level the playing field.

Tax revenues that legalized marijuana will yield.

Cut the military budget.

$2.3 Trillion unaccounted for; we won't forget.

Close overseas military bases.

Negotiate Medicare drug prices.

Never use the middle class and poor as targets.

In order to protect ultra-rich's largesse.

Does Trump "Tweet" When His Staff Says No?

Thom plus logo Lev Parnas tells the story of how Donald Trump fired ambassador Marie Yovanovitch at least "four or five times," and that they were afraid that he would "fire her with a tweet." This is not the first time we have heard from White House insiders that the president often gives irrational or stupid orders that his staff then ignores.
