In view of the bizarre exhibition of presidential candidates in the 2016 primaries I believe it's vital to the citizenry to be well-informed in order to be able to assess beyond the statements of the candidates and the analyses of political pundits.
The everyday "BREAKING NEWS" that we get every hysterical second on CNN, MSNBC and FOX is not news at all. It is a trailer for the hot new scary film that is coming out on November 8th to a voting booth near you.
Dear Bernie: There are people -- just about everyone else on the Democratic side -- who believe the battle for the nomination has been effectively decided, and that it's time to pivot to the must-win battle against Trump and the GOP.

Whether or not we personally like a particular candidate, we must consider the power they will wield and the choices they will make. Nowhere is this clearer than in the power to appoint Supreme Court justices.
Bernie says the banks are too powerful so we need to break them up and reinstitute Glass-Steagall, the depression era legislation that separates high-risk investment banking from staid commercial banking.
For months, Bernie Sanders has told audiences across the country that he is the best candidate to face Donald Trump based on polls that simulate a hyp...
