Ellen Brown: Default on the public debt, nationalization of the banks, and a citizen dividend could actually save the Italian economy.
Randy Shaw: Americans may “hate” politics, but the media cannot get enough of it. Since Obama’s re-election we have been deluged with stories not simply about Hillary Clinton, but also about Republicans Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush positioning themselves for runs in 2016.
Brent Budowsky: It is time to resume discussion about the possibility of a political realignment that would make Democrats the leading national political party for a generation.
Randy Shaw: While Obama will be sure to hit most of the key talking points he missed on October 3, his past history raises questions about his capacity to deliver the highly partisan, aggressive arguments that Joe Biden energized Democrats with last week.
Victoria Defrancesco Soto: Simple addition and a prime-time convention spot make a Castro presidency seem natural, but the larger equation is complex and does not bode well for the young San Antonio mayor.
Andy Love: What Cain has done, thanks to the insanity of the Republican nominating process and a gullible and compliant media, is become another right wing celebrity.
Berry Craig: Elizabeth Warren kept her cool. She swore the heckler, who said he had been unemployed for more than a year, didn’t make her mad. “There’s someone else pre-packaging that poison — and that’s who makes me angry.”
Tom Degan: You know your candidacy is pretty much blued, screwed, and tattooed, when a certified headcase like Herman Cain is leading you in every poll.
Brent Budowsky: Let me be the first to propose a national movement to draft Al Gore for president in 2016, carry the banner of the New Frontier heritage of the Democratic Party, and mobilize to elect true Democrats to the House and Senate in 2012.
Berry Craig: Herman Cain says liberal Democrats have foisted “economic slavery” on African Americans and the rest of the body politic just as conservative, white supremacist Democrats of old fastened shackles on his forbears.
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.
Brent Budowsky: If Elizabeth Warren runs, she would bring the serious, honest, baloney-free and respectful debate that is long overdue in American politics.
