Hillary, Elizabeth and 2016

Hillary Elizabeth 2016

Brent Budowsky: These two women, who agree on virtually every issue that would form the platform to restore the dream, have the potential to build a relationship that would be complementary, synergistic and inspiring for Democrats.

A Democratic Party in Search of Its Soul

Democratic Party Struggles

RJ Eskow: Voters can sense an absence of conviction from a political party. The absence of a unifying core may help explain the Democrats’ devastating 2014 performance. The electorate may have concluded that, to paraphrase Gertrude Stein, there was no there there.

The Incredible Shrinking Democratic Party

Democratic Party Irrelevant

Joe Palermo: The internal sniping and bickering has already begun among Democratic ranks but it’s their own damn fault. The internal debates following the 2014 midterm elections highlight the ideological schizophrenia that continues to plague the Democratic Party.

Emperor Obama, Huh?

Emperor Obama

Larry Wines: Republicans will do nothing that does not feature cutting or eliminating taxes for the very wealthy, and/or deregulating everything so their rich sponsors can run roughshod over the physical, economic, cultural, and environmental landscapes. No stewardship, no concern for the future, just exclusive emphasis on short-term profit-taking.

Capitalism, Socialism, Fascism

Capitalism Socialism Fascism

Richard Wolff: The deepening problems of the early 21st century raise the distinct possibility of another cycle of fascist and traditional socialist experiments or, as we shall show, perhaps a genuinely new solution.

Dorothy Barkley: Sen. McConnell You’re No Alben Barkley

Mitch McConnell Falls Short

Berry Craig: McConnell is a conservative whose bane is “big government.” Barkley didn’t duck the liberal label. He ardently supported FDR’s Depression-fighting New Deal program of massive federal action to put people back to work and to boost the economy.

Same Old, Same Old

Dick Cheney Draft Dodger

Murray Polner: Never underestimate Cheney. He’s a shrewd survivor. His vision of an America strong enough to police the world and take on all comers still commands extensive support.

Please Politicize Ebola

Politicizing Ebola

Tina Dupuy: We should politicize Ebola because the outbreak is a perfect example of why government dysfunction is needlessly hazardous to our health.

A Frightening Cruise Through Ted Cruz’s Head

crazy ted cruz

Jim Hightower: The first right turn on our road trip brings us to a sweeping view of Ted’s Energy Renaissance Act, a proposal so studded with fossil fuel favors that it should be titled the “Exxon Mobil Relief Act.”

‘Vote, Baby, Vote!’

voter registration drive

Berry Craig: Indeed. The Republicans’ bogus claim that their voter laws are aimed at stopping “voter fraud” reminds me of the old white supremacist Southern Democrats who vowed that their blatantly racist Jim Crow voter suppression and segregation laws were based on “states’ rights.”
