  2. Here is one of my political theory's; 1. Within thee past 60-100 years, has the United States of America become better or worse Overall Morally and Ethically? 2. Within thee past 60-100 years, has thee United States of America become more Liberal Democratic, or more Conservative Republican? 3. So what has been the problem within America Politics Morally and Ethically, for the past 60-100 years? I've asked at least over 50 people these questions. I've asked Socialists, Democrats, Liberals, Moderates, Libertarians, Republicans, and Conservatives, and 2 out of 50 disagreed with this. Thee other 48 or more answered it like this; 1. Worse Overall Morally, and Ethically. 2. The United States has become a lot more Liberal Democratic with the past 60-100 years. 3. The Liberal Democrats have been the problem in American Politics, Morally and Ethically.
  3. The Slippery Slope of Complicity https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/18/opinion/the-slippery-slope-of-complicity.html Interesting analysis of GOP behavior by Paul Krugman. I found several excerpts particularly interesting: One factor Krugman seems to have omitted is ... fear of being primaried. RAN
  4. There are numerous problems and issues in politics however one seems to weigh in other issue more than others, and that would be Extreme partisanship. Other wise known as radicalism. Today the main two parties that dominate America politics have gone to new extremes of liberal or conservative politics. So much that the politicians often left in the gray, or the politicians that compromise are lobbied against by their own parties for not being extreme enough. No longer do politicians listen to the people, but rather to the sponsors with the big money. Our government is now controlled by the rich and the few. No longer do politicians attempt to do their job which is to represent everyone and compromise. Instead we get one party trying to assert its agenda on all others. We've have gotten to the point where we have had to shut down the government because another party was so afraid of another party getting it's way. If you don't see that as a failure of government or even politics then so help us God. Are political system is on the road to failure. Politicians only care about the votes. You can seriously believe that bringing a snowball is proof that global warming isn't real? Never have I ever seen any evidence not supporting Global Warming so if you do please share after all I would like to hear from a real scientist like all these other politicians keep ranting about. No longer is the future of our society in mind. Politicians think about the now not the future. There has always been the choice between what's easy and what's right. Sadly the decisions are made the easy way not the right way. Reform is needed here. The government needs a multiparty system. Not everyone is represented now due to the dominance of the two major parties. Representation is a basic right in our constitution so why is it being denied? Coalitions need to be made so everyone in our country is represented and so politics as a whole will compromise again. The electoral college needs to be discarded as well because the electoral college system is a broken system. A broken system that worked 200 years ago. It is an outdated system that no longer represents voters in their best interests. A vote should count the same in every state not be transformed into a number that represents different states unfairly. Now some people here might blame Democrats or Republicans however it is both parties fault. I my self may be a democrat, doesn't mean I agree with them always, and I blame them just as much as the Republicans for the way our government is. Both are at fault so why don't both of them mend the problem together. Bipartisanship is set up to fail in our country so why continue it?
  5. In 2000, I was told by a GM Executive (after he spoke with the US Head of the Transportation and Energy in Washington DC) that at the current rate of consumption, the world’s oil supply would be depleted by 2023. You have seen the Republicans, Conservatives, Corporations and Religious Extremist ignored the will of the people and invaded the Middle East for weapon of mass destruction that was never found. You heard about the US Evangelical Extremists that were trapped on the side of a mountain after we started withdrawing from Afghanistan and Iraq. Cheney and Bush lied to the American people about the Middle East. They strategically invaded the Middle East, killing American soldiers, foreign families in the Middle East, and sent Religious Extremist to change the culture and religion. It was all about pillaging oil to support the 24 US Free Trade Agreements. You have seen the Republicans, Conservatives, Corporations and Religious Extremist sway the Supreme Court to give Corporations Rights like people and now they buy elections. It is no longer "We the People"...it is "We the Corporations". You saw the Republicans, Conservatives, Corporations and Religious Extremist open up the boarders to immigrants during George H. W. Bush administration and escalate during the George W. Bush's administration. Yet the Republicans, Conservatives, Corporations and Religious Extremist don't want to give the immigrants US Citizenship, but have no problem giving the Corporations rights and representation. This is being done for Greed, Power and Oppression of the American people. During the Clinton years, the North American Free Trade Agreement started exporting of manufacturing, technology and high wage jobs offshore (as Ross Perot predicted). The top wealthiest 10% benefited financially both in the US and in foreign markets at the expense of the immigrants and the American people. To further put salt into the wounds of the American worker and their families, politicians (like Mitch McConnell) refused to address immigration and the minimum wage…forcing immigrants and the American worker to work for poverty wages. When the few control and oppress the many, we no longer have a democracy. We have an Oligarchy. RS Lanahan

  7. This articles looks at the myths around Ronald Reagan - all the things the modern Right glosses over, and which, unfortunately, a lot of Liberals and Progressives have come to accept as a standard narrative about The Gipper. This looks at all the things you thought you knew, and comes up with some pretty amazing implications for the current debates about taxes, economic patriotism and how we've got where we are. http://sheppardpost.com/why-the-left-needs-to-talk-about-reagan-2/
  8. There has been alot of news about how Cheney and Bush were right about Iraq recently. Well they should be, as they invented the problem with knowledge beforehand that the current situation would be the result. Cheney was dead right about Iraq in 1994. But dead wrong or intentionally wrong in 2002. In Cheney´s own words from 1994: "Because if we'd gone to Baghdad we would have been all alone. There wouldn't have been anybody else with us. There would have been a U.S. occupation of Iraq. None of the Arab forces that were willing to fight with us in Kuwait were willing to invade Iraq. Once you got to Iraq and took it over, took down Saddam Hussein's government, then what are you going to put in its place? That's a very volatile part of the world, and if you take down the central government of Iraq, you could very easily end up seeing pieces of Iraq fly off: part of it, the Syrians would like to have to the west, part of it - eastern Iraq - the Iranians would like to claim, they fought over it for eight years. In the north you've got the Kurds, and if the Kurds spin loose and join with the Kurds in Turkey, then you threaten the territorial integrity of Turkey. It's a quagmire if you go that far and try to take over Iraq. The other thing was casualties. Everyone was impressed with the fact we were able to do our job with as few casualties as we had. But for the 146 Americans killed in action, and for their families - it wasn't a cheap war. And the question for the president, in terms of whether or not we went on to Baghdad, took additional casualties in an effort to get Saddam Hussein, was how many additional dead Americans is Saddam worth? Our judgment was, not very many, and I think we got it right." Dick Cheney April 15, 1994 in a C-Span interview I agree that we need to do something about ISIS in Iraq and Syria but to so blindly dismiss culpability for the mess they created is disgusting. Dick Cheney gave a now prophetic interpretation of what it would mean to topple Hussein in 1994, all of which is now coming to pass. Referring to Cheney´s words from 1994, I can only surmise that the current state of affairs is exactly what they intended by going to war in Iraq. Both Bush and Cheney families are heavily invested in defense and oil contracting with some of the largest players in the business of war, Haliburton, KBR, to name a couple. By ensuring America is in a state of perpetual war, they are ensuring their families, friends, and associates futures. Its really quite disgusting and so divorced from any notion of a common good, nearly unfathomable for someone like myself. But, I guess when you earn your fortune as a CEO for Haliburton in times of unrest and war, it changes your perspective of right and wrong. I can only hope that if this is their motivation for throwing America into the fire, they burn themselves´, in an everlasting fire.
  9. Maine hasn't seen a Democrat in 20 years or so. But are the Republicans they've had really so bad? It is pretty much a purple state. Is it so bad to have someone with a lot of progressive views even if they're rolling around with that dangling 'R' next to their name? What do you guys think of this particular Maine Republican? http://www.polititalk.org/progressives-leave-maine-to-republicans/
