What American Values Are Also Universal Values?

In an interview with The Atlantic published this week, Hillary Rodham Clinton advocated the promotion of “American values that also happen to be universal values.”

Meritocracy Loses In 2016 Presidential Poll

A new poll out by NBC and Marist shows, among voters in New Hampshire and Iowa, Hillary Clinton in the lead for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination and Jeb Bush in the lead for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination.

Myth of A Successful Iraq War Continues

I was struck when I passed by a new stand this morning and saw what was on the front cover of the Detroit Free Press. The headline read: Heartbroken U.S. Vets Watch In Dismay As Sacrifices In Iraq Unravel.

One of the most memorable things for me about the story Howard’s End (other than the visual of walking through the night to arrive in a field of wildflowers at dawn) is the vivid portrayal of a worker’s professional downfall. The character leaves one job because of bad advice from a One Percenter, and then [...]

The Most Inexplicable Political Twitter Profile I Have Ever Seen

Adam Parkhomenko followed me today on Twitter. Why? I’m not a Hillary Clinton supporter, and I haven’t even mentioned Hillary Clinton. The answer is clear when we find out that Adam Parkhomenko has followed 15,801 people on Twitter. “Who needs smart friends anyways,” Parkhomenko tweeted an hour ago. The strategy seems to be to [...]

Democrats, What Is The Appeal Of Proposed 2016 Candidates?

Democrats, what makes any of these politicians a good choice – not just the best choice among those who are running, or a popular choice, but an actual good choice to become the next President of the United States? [...]

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. [...]

6 Top Potential Liberal Presidential Candidates From The House of Representatives

Speculation over the potential 2016 presidential candidacy of former senator and secretary of state Hillary Clinton is interesting up to a point. It certainly carries the will she/won’t she element of drama, and there’s little question that some portions of the Democratic rank-and-file would be interested in a 2016 Clinton for President campaign.

From another [...]

Draft Hillary Clinton Movement Starts With Corrupt Money Machines

The comfort of these elites with the dirtiest methods of campaigning suggests that those who would influence Hillary Clinton, as a candidate and as President, would rather maintain the flawed status quo in Washington D.C., than attempt to change it. [...]
