Single Issue Voting…

This is one exhaustive and exhaustingly long, insightful and well referenced article, presenting a different, from the establishment punditocracy perspective, view of electoral politics. It begs for some collective marking up of instructive passages or, if it makes anyone feel better, individualist unpacking of parts or the whole or, nothing at all – possibilities abound…   […]

Obama Democrats Prying Open The Trans Pacific Partnership Pandora’s Box

Everywhere, it seems, deep in denial and desperate Dem party loyalists at loss to explain away Obama’s corporate interests friendly compromises with the astroturf Tea Party—the potent Ayn Rand, and Koch Brothers’ names are invoked to detract from, and exonerate, the Dem party’s own transgressions, sins and betrayals—are drawing inter-party distinctions where few exist, and […]

Parochial Political Movements Do Not a Revolution Make

When one digs down deep enough – not that deep really – or “simply” casts off the veil of propaganda and life-long conditioning, one finds the political center and the public center to be occupying opposite poles.

Too often, though, their astute comments end in links to the Green, or some Progressive or Socialist […]

Ralph Nader & Ron Paul See Third Way, Centrism and Corporatism as Facism’s Kissing Cousins

I perceive an alliance between the left, progressives, libertarians, and conservatives as a strategic necessity in a common effort to rid us of what is, plainly, turning America into a full blown fascist State.
