How Would Rural Folksiness Change The White House?

Scott Conroy of Real Clear Politics says that Montana’s Democratic Governor, Brian Schweitzer, who was mentioned as a possible presidential candidate in 2012, would bring “a hefty dose of rural folksiness” to the 2016 presidential campaign.

Amy Klobuchar Would Be An NSA Surveillance Candidate For President

Senator Klobuchar hasn’t simply gone along with the flow to allow the electronic surveillance of Americans’ telephone calls, emails, and Internet activity by the military through the NSA. Senator Klobuchar has actively worked to make sure that Americans are spied upon by their own government, in violation of the Bill of Rights. [...]

2016 Democratic Presidential Candidates A Disaster On Privacy Against NSA Spying

What we need in a presidential candidate is a leader who has actually already put his or her political career on the line in order to actively oppose NSA spying against Americans. Two Democratic senators come to mind. [...]
