'Something is wrong' with presidential election, says civil rights leader Diane Nash


Nash said she did not take positions for or against political candidates, but she did blast the political system candidates operate in. In particular, Nash showed distaste for the U.S. Supreme Court's 2010 Citizen United ruling that opened the door allowing massive amounts of money to flood into political coffers.

"We no longer have a government of, for and by the people," she said; we have now a government of, for and by the corporations, and it's up to this generation to recover democracy" ...

America Is Turning Into a Confederacy of Dunces

Why is Donald Trump within a whisker of the White House? Two-thirds of the country can’t even name the three branches of government


In struggling for some explanation for the inexplicable events of this election season — in particular, the fact that someone as unqualified and ignorant as Donald Trump is as close as he is to the most powerful post in the world — I keep coming back to a conversation that a friend had with her trainer at a posh gym in Manhattan. The New York City trainer is a bright and personable woman in her 20s. But when my friend casually referred to Hillary Clinton’s hearings on Benghazi, Libya, she was befuddled. Not just because she had never heard of the Benghazi controversy … but because she had never heard of the secretary of state, the State Department, or of U.S. ambassadors. She was just as blissfully unaware of the existence of the two houses of Congress, with each appointing committees to focus on matters of national concern ...

Social Media Spots Startling Message in Melania Trump's Hot Pink Debate Outfit


Was Melania Trump subtly signaling her support for Democratic presidential nominee and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton through her wardrobe choice this evening?

That was the speculation by the wardrobe-readers on Twitter.

Mrs. Trump, a former model and the wife of Republican nominee and former reality television personality Donald Trump, wore a hot pink high-neck ***** blow blouse, reportedly by Gucci (and retailing for $1100) from Gucci, and matching pants, to Sunday night’s town hall-style debate held at Washington University in St. Louis ...


The color and style are both ones that are frequent favorites of Clinton’s, Donald Trump’s rival for the presidency, which led plenty on Twitter to speculate that Mrs. Trump is, in fact, #WithHer.

"We have now a government of, for and by the corporations. And it's up to this generation to recover democracy"

How about starting with the voting process itself? Like everybody could vote without a hassle and everybody's vote gets counted in a transparent way? That's what amazes me most about American democracy, it hasn't got the basics right and appearantly hasn't made much progress since the 2000 farce. Elections are about the numbers, and if you have the numbers you have the leverage to counter corporate influence and media distortion.

/QUOTE] Hasn't Diane Nash made a very relevant point with regard to the ongoing SHAMOCRACY masquerading as Democracy, now standard in the USA?

Though I loathe Donald Trump [isn’t he just a choirboy in comparison to the shag them ALL antics of the publicly executed but still revered with god like reverence of JFK/and his brother Robert] as much as anyone else with more rational processing power re factual information than an amoeba or brick; am I the only one underwhelmed by the inanity of DIRT the current status quo are digging up to derail his bandwagon; whereas aren’t WE all in BIG trouble when the only option available to the USA’s electorate is to stay in the frying pan with Hilary Clinton, or jump into the fire with Donald Trump?


Isn’t ANYONE who genuinely believes they are not programmed
graphically illustrating that their programming is COMPLETE?

Absolutely, and for the record, my choice would have been for Mr. Obama to carry on, much like Roosevelt was afforded, first, and second that Bernie Sanders would be the presumptive nominee for the Democratic Party this election year.
