Our democracy is strongest when everyone is able to participate, and it is time to fulfill that promise to the American people. The people should be selecting their leaders, not the other way around.
In their interest to garner favor with U.S. companies (mainly in search of campaign funds), the U.S. Congress has allowed these companies to escape U.S. corporate taxes by magically declaring that their IP is located in some foreign tax haven.
Democrats are down to a head-to-head contest, which was on full display last night. Both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders made their respective cases fairly well, and the jostling between them for position was notable.
Bernie Sanders is not a Democrat and has never been one and if he becomes the Democratic nominee at the head of the ticket Democrats on the ballot below him from school board to U.S. Senate will be running for the hills.
To overturn Citizens United will require either a change of the Court (not implausible, if a Democrat wins, not possible for a generation, if a Republican wins), or a constitutional amendment (unlikely through Congress, possible through an Article V convention).
It is not a double standard to criticize Israel, and it is most certainly not anti-Semitic.

President Obama just had a very good month in the polls. Not spectacular, mind you, but still better than any month since January of 2015. Essentially, Obama regained the job approval polling ground he lost over the previous two or three months.
A free trade agreement (FTA) expands economic opportunity in foreign markets for American workers and businesses, while doing the same for their foreign counterparts in our market.

Hey, I've been working some within the women in tech community, supporting women-led startups and code programs for women and girls. Lots of times, the folks in this community don't get the recognition they deserve.
The choices we make now -- whether we move our economy towards clean energy or deepen our dependence on dirty fuels -- will have huge repercussions for our children and grandchildren. It's bad enough to contemplate our kids asking us why didn't try harder to solve climate change.
