Ellen Brown: Default on the public debt, nationalization of the banks, and a citizen dividend could actually save the Italian economy.
Nick Antonicello: Political labels do matter. That’s why Hahn has moved to the left in this effort to become politically acceptable to grass roots activists and rank & file party members.
Mark Bowen: Kentucky does appear to be a state red enough that Rand Paul, no matter how many times he slips up and tells his constituents how he really feels, is still likely to be their next Senator. But in many ways Republicans will be hurt more nationally if he is, making it a minimum of six more years, rather than six more months, that he’ll be their problem.
Robert Letcher: It’s not that I expected Obama to communicate with me about his policy positions, although I certainly hoped he would – even though I don’t wait around for him to call. Instead, it just seemed to me that his campaign – our campaign – would likely improve his prospects for winning if he were somehow to really communicate with this me and all the other me’s whose support he needs in order to be elected and govern successfully.
At the present rate, historians will be speaking of the dozen years of the OBushma administrations. It’s getting very fast to look as if the only thing that MIGHT save the Obama presidency for a second term is the Gop death wish to nominate Ms Death Panel – i.e. Ms Death Palin – herself.
The two of us threw our support behind Barack Obama’s candidacy early on and are deeply gratified that this gifted, inspiring man will become our president Tuesday. America and the world will be immensely better with Barack Obama and Joe Biden at the helm—and with Michelle Obama as First Lady. We tear up typing the [...]
We often hear that the election that takes place next Tuesday will be one of the most important in American history. Such statements, however, are often little more than hyperbole.

by Rev. Irene Monroe – In the past, Oprah has had presidential hopefuls on her show, for example, Al Gore and George Bush during their 2000 bid. By having both candidates on her show, Oprah not only appeared bipartisan but also catered to her audience comprised of both Bush Republicans and Gore Democrats.
The Democratic National Convention was held this week, amid the hyperbole of the Joe Biden selection as a running mate and one in four Hillary supporters stating that they would not vote for Barack Obama because she was never considered. It is not a position that Black America is unfamiliar with. We experienced the same [...]
Frankly, for decades my view is that if someone wants to fool around on their spouse, it’s their business and we should all butt out. Even presidential candidates are entitled to a sliver of privacy. But we live in an age that craves mixing its puritanical attitude about sex with a voyeuristic demand for celebrity [...]
For the last several months, I have received phone calls and a zillion emails about the Hillary issue. I supported the move to get the Democratic Party Florida delegation seated before any other Democratic National Committee (DNC) member outside of Florida signed on. I argued that the DNC Rules Committee did not have the authority [...]
By Herb Engstrom — The main reason that I have supported Barack Obama since the declaration of his candidacy is that I feel he was the candidate that could improve the world’s image of America most rapidly.
