Early on in his presidential bid, Donald Trump began touting his anti-establishment credentials. When it worked, he ran with it. It was a posture that proved pure gold in the Republican primaries. His actual relationship to the establishment is, however, complex in an opportunistic way.

I feel like the Republican Party has told me they don't care about my opinion and are going to do what they feel is best. That's not why I vote Republican! That's not true representation of the people! That's not American!

It's not a stretch to say the landscape of American politics has changed, with a direct correlation to the current state of affairs in America. In a post-industrial capitalist society, Americans of all creed and color are experiencing an overall decline in quality of life.

I think I'm going to support Kanye's 2020 Presidential run. Hey, why not? It's cute. Yeah, Kanye has been a bit misogynistic towards Taylor Swift recently. But, you know, politics can get a little rough.

Western political and economic structures are, in some ways, specifically designed to resist deep and rapid change, if only to prevent temporary and reversible fluctuations from having an undue influence on underlying systems. This works well when politics and economies are operating in cyclical mode, as they usually have been in the West. But when major structural and secular challenges arise, as is the case today, the advanced countries' institutional architecture acts as a major obstacle to effective action.

After reading just a handful of Twitter comments aimed at Arquette and pages directed toward E! and Rancic, clearly there is still an obvious need and immense desire for a platform of open dialog and feminist critique of our culture.

There is a growing concern in Democratic circles, which I share, about whether the Hillary Clinton who could run in 2016 is repeating the mistake she made in 2008, when she ran as the inevitable and invincible candidate of a political establishment held in widespread public disrepute.

If UKIP really is a "libertarian" party (and the jury is very much still out), and wishes to benefit from the inherent popularity of liberty, then it must prove it.

Like much of America, I'm down on professional politicians. I'm tired of people getting in office to line their pockets, suck up to lobbyists and constantly run for re-election.

Can You Feel the Anger? O, Villainy! O, Perfidy! O, Washington!

That's part of why they sent us to Washington, and turned us into Washington: to bring home the bacon. Now it's like having porn on your hard drive.
