The United States is full of ... people mired in political ignorance and delusion.

Paul Street, Dandelion Salad

October 22, 2018 | The United States is full of personally decent and caring, often highly intelligent people mired in political ignorance and delusion.

A smart and liberally inclined family doctor I know recently expressed concern over her high-income husband’s support for the malignant narcissist and pathological liar currently occupying the White House. “I can understand him being a Republican,” the doctor says, “but I just don’t get him backing Donald Trump.”

Part 2: Nobody to Vote For ~ David Swanson

http://www.globalresearch.ca/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/vote1.jpegThe most likely place to find what scraps exist remains candidates’ own websites. In some cases, this can be augmented from speeches and interviews. Even after doing that research yourself, you will almost certainly still lack an answer to any of these 20 basic questions.

David Swanson, Dandelion Salad

October 22, 2018 | When I say there is nobody to vote for, I don’t just mean the familiar complaint that the candidates may be different shades of evil but are all too evil to support, that the earth’s climate does not recover one iota because some even worse policy has been averted, that sadistic bombings and humanitarian bombings actually look identical. I do mean all of that. But I also mean that candidates are campaigning as and being presented as nothing, as empty figures with no positions on anything.
What is the most common foreign policy position on the websites of Democratic candidates for U.S. Congress? Quick! It’s not hard
!You got it? You’re wrong. It was a trick question. Most of their websites do not admit to the existence of 96% of humanity in any way shape or form — although one can infer that the world must exist, because so many of them express such deep love for veterans.

  • An effort that seeks … a profound re-envisioning in the ways we make every decision in our lives is nothing short of a revolution. We must gird ourselves for the struggle if we ever wish toseegovernment of, by, and for the people, all of us, together.
