Why No Liberal Could Ever Vote For Libertarian Michael McDermott

Over the last day, I’ve been having a discussion with one of our readers, Stephen Kent Gray, about the difference between liberals and Libertarians.

Why I Will Vote For Howie Hawkins For Governor Of New York Tomorrow

I have met both Andrew Cuomo and Howie Hawkins in person. My general impression of both of these candidates in the 2014 campaign for Governor of New York was that they were more motivated their personal ambitions than by any policy concerns. Perhaps that’s typical of politicians, but the point is that I was not […]

0 of 3 Candidates for Maine Governor Get Contributions from Workers at WalMart or Hannaford

Yesterday, I let you know that although Hannaford Supermarkets is Maine’s biggest employer, independent candidate for Maine Governor Eliot Cutler hadn’t gotten any contributions from any Hannaford workers in the Spring of 2014.

Americans Elect Staffers Regroup to Meddle in Maine Politics Again

As Richard Winger points out in his latest Ballot Access News, Americans Elect lost ballot status in California on December 31 2013, capping a year of drawn-out erosion in the official position of the corporate political party that tried to elect a “centrist” president but failed to find enough actual “centrist” people.

Can we finally […]

Martin O'Malley For President? What Do You Know About Him?

What else do you know about Martin O’Malley? What have you concluded about his worth as a potential candidate for President of the United States? Why do you think some Democrats are eager for O’Malley to run for President in 2016? […]

Hey Chris Christie! Why don’t YOU shut up for a second?

Chris Christie, why don’t YOU shut up for a second? While you’re at it, why don’t you step down from office, and allow someone more dignified and decent to represent the state of New Jersey? […]

In Solidarity with Occupy Denver, Connecticut Students Revoke John Hickenlooper’s Diploma

Nobody with a fun name like Hickenlooper should be such a Fascistloser. But, alas, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper of Colorado is going far over the top, not content simply to pepper spray and shoot projectiles at political demonstrators but going so far as to issue summons against sympathetic citizens who were delivering supplies to the […]
