Three days ago, the Independent Voter Network posted a piece in which it quoted Nick Troiano explaining why he is running for Congress:
I seem to have heard that idea before… but where?
Do you remember what Americans Elect lawyer Daniel Winslow said in October 2012 about the effort to pump $1.75 million in [...]
What does Nick Troiano (501c4-PA) in Congress mean for America’s youth?
Also, good things, but, to be clear, not bad things, for America, too.
Harry Canyon writes this week to Irregular Times, reacting to an Anti-Republican bumper sticker web page of ours on which we write disparagingly of the GOP:

We also know that the plan for The Can Kicks Back to have 300 active campus chapters by the end of Spring 2013 was a [...]
Politicos around the country are having a hearty chortle at the ham-handed in which the fake grassroots political corporation called “The Can Kicks Back” accidentally released e-mail conversations revealing that it is A) indeed the funded creature of pro-corporate billionaire Pete Peterson and B) is going broke now that the original Pete Peterson funding stream [...]
Yesterday, I received a New York Voter Exploratory Republican Presidential Preference Polling Ballot in the mail.
