A Pretty Good Election, but the Right Still Rules
Mark Gabrish Conlan/Zenger's Newsmagazine
2012-11-21 5:34 PM
The November 6, 2012 election turned out fairly well for progressives — from Barack Obama retaining the presidency to a true Left-wing Democrat like Bob Filner winning for Mayor of San Diego — but the Right is still strong. The issue agendas and terms of discussion continue to be dictated by an increasingly militant Right wing and America's pathetic, ill-organized remnant of a Left no longer has the power to put pressure on the political system for progressive reforms the way it did in the 1890's, 1930's and 1960's.

Deconstructing the reality behind The Reality of the "Lesser Evil"

Which is why core policies of the state do not change by changing the front faces in the White House. Often minor domestic policy changes are put on the table and “then, vigorous debate is encouraged within the limits imposed by unstated doctrinal orthodoxy” just to maintain the facade of democracy and elections being the harbingers of the much needed change.

A tale of two elections: Venezuelan accountability and U.S. irregularities
2012-11-15 10:54 AM
Venezuelan voting machines have verifiable printouts, all parties participate in vote-security preparations and results are available minutes after the polls close. Compare that with U.S. elections that feature voter suppression and unaccountable voting machines.

Remember the neoliberalism of Reaganomics was an ideology that is carried out from America in Germany-with all its consequences from deregulation of the banking sector and the labor market and the change from the market economy to market society up to rule of the financial sector. (text/plain)

2012 Presidential Election & Cal Props Results
Labor Creates All Wealth
2012-11-08 7:16 AM
All elections confirm the class struggle that has preceded them and the 2012 presidential general election confirms the fact that there has not been much class struggle in this country. There has been some effort to bring this backward country into the fold of civilization with the placing of a repeal of the California death penalty, Prop 34, on the ballot by the voters, but as of 5 a.m., 11/7/12, it has 47% of the vote. The presidential election, with the re-election of the latest fascist war criminal in the White House with a bare 50.3% of the vote is no mandate and this termed out president is now a lame duck president. The 2016 presidential election begins today. (text/plain)

5% Protest Vote Against Military-Industrial Complex; Gary Johnson 4 Prez!
Breaking Bipartisan Corruption
2012-11-07 12:12 PM
Since both Republicans and Democrats are heavily dependent upon lobbyist contributions from the military-industrial complex, our only result on Nov. 7th will be more of the same status quo whether it be Tweedledee Omaba or Tweedledum Romney. Please help break the bipartisan grip on democracy by giving third party Libertarian and anti-war candidate Gary Johnson your vote today!!

US Election: Electing the "Lesser Evil" Obama or an Alternative to Big Business
2012-11-06 5:36 AM
In his contempt for people who think they have a right to state assistance, Romney shows himself to be a reactionary capitalist who slept through or represses a whole epoch of human development. Art 25 of the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights affirms the rights to food and housing. (text/plain + 1 comment)

Nov 6: Vote Your Conscience: Peace & Freedom & Green
Remember Roe v Wade
2012-11-05 11:29 AM
It is barricades time now as election day is November 6, 2012. When we vote, we remember Roe v Wade, the 1973 decision under President Nixon, legalizing abortion in the US, with the majority opinion written by Republican Nixon appointee, Justice Blackman, with a Democratic Kennedy appointee, Justice White, dissenting proving that it is mass movements that make the difference. The so-called “lesser” evil is just plain evil. You have to vote your conscience if you want anything to improve as Peace & Freedom Party and the Green Party are products of grassroots movements.

Pre-Election Message by Stewart Alexander for the Socialist
2012-11-05 8:23 AM
In some states, voters will be able to cast their vote to speak for the 99 percent and vote for Stewart Alexander for President and Alex Mendoza for Vice President. These voters will be on the frontline to revolt against a political system that is unfair and unjust; their votes will be a revolt against unfair ballot access laws that has rigged the entire political process to limit voter choice to the candidates of the two corporate parties.

Five Easy Post-Election Predictions (No Matter Who Wins)

6 Top Economists Explain Which President Is More Likely to Speed the Next Financial Crisis
2012-11-01 1:30 PM
Five years after the horrific financial collapse of 2007-2008, the economy remains fragile. No one is quite sure when another financial crash might happen. Five years? Ten years? There’s widespread worry, however, that whenever it comes it's likely to make 2007-2008 look like a picnic in comparison. A short list of some of our most urgent vulnerabilities shows that we could easily be plunged into hell once again unless politicians act responsibly and forcefully to avoid it:
Champion of the Rich and Militarists

This election is terrifyingly close, because Mitt Romney has lied his way this far—offering his made up fantasy world where we can have a bigger defense budget, tax cuts for the rich, a smaller deficit, two unicorns in every garage, and all with no pain for the middle class.

2012-10-28 6:33 AM
Reinvigorated, jump started, reenergized, pumped up and ready to go, just the right amount of boost, we hear them all when it comes to the last stretch of elections. “Getting all tingly and excited for the next four years that I know I will be spending with you.” “The American people will be making the right decision by voting for me.” “Out with the old and in with the new.” “Now's not the time to give in.” Either way both of them seem to agree, “You'll be making the right decision by voting for me this coming election.” (text/html)

Obama vs. Romney
2012-10-25 3:50 AM
The strength of the democrats is the folly and mean-spiritedness of republicans. Programs to support the economy were rejected every time with the sole goal of bad economic data. Romney/Ryan rely on the short memory of voters who blame only Obama for the faltering economy Obstructionism should be the issue. (text/plain + 2 comments)

“Ang bulaan o sinungaling ay kapatid ng magnanakaw.”
Totoo ang kasabihang ito lalo na kung iisipin ang ginawang aklat ni Senador Juan Ponce-Enrile . ang mahigit sa 700 pahinang “Memoirs” para magbangong puri At ikampanya ang sarili at ang anak nitong tumatakbong senador sa susunod na taong eleksyon.
May masidhing pagnanais na gumawa ng sariling kasaysayan, ipinasulat pa ni Enrile sa isang dating aktibista na sa akala niya ay may natitira pang bango, kay Nelson Navarro, dating tagapagsalita ng Movement for A Democratic Philippines (MDP) ang kanyang aklat na diumano ay kanyang sinulat ng mahigit sampung taon. Si Navarro din ang sumulat ng aklat tungkol kay Dr. Nemesio Prudente, dating pangulo ng PUP.
