Yes, I could pout in the corner with my arms crossed and refuse to vote. But given how many African-Americans are currently disenfranchised as a result of Republican-created laws and procedures, to be able to sit on my hands is a luxury millions in this country don't have.
If the purpose of Wall Street's "business model" is to help bank executives get rich without personal risk or penalty, there is no question that fraud is at its heart.
Ennui and hopelessness cling to US politics like a foul perfume. And the 2014 interim Congressional elections where we had the absolute worst voter turnout ever since World War II, reflect it.

The end stage of campaign psychosis is acceptance. But before that happens, comes hypocrisy. For a textbook example of hypocrisy, look at the Sanders campaign's changing stance on superdelegates.

Your article on Bernie Sanders came as such a surprise to me -- that the same woman who has made it her life's mission to speak the truth and shed light on corruption, lies, and false narratives created by the corporate elite and special interest groups, would now suddenly create a narrative that distorts facts and misguides American voters.
Hillary Clinton won Arizona, the most delegate-rich of the three states that voted on Tuesday. However, it was Bernie Sanders who surprised pundits, pulling off two landslide victories in Utah and Idaho.
We're likely to hear a lot in the coming weeks about "Bernie Momentum" but here's the startling political reality: Sanders can win every single one of the remaining contests and still lose the nomination.
Between now and March 26, voters who are feeling the Bern in Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Washington, Alaska and Hawaii have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to prove the pundits wrong by propelling Sanders toward victory in Philadelphia. We need our strongest fighter in the ring this fall. That fighter is Bernie Sanders.
Unfortunately for the corporate media elites, the people are beginning to wake up. The people are beginning to see through the lies and talking points meant to dissuade their enthusiasm for a once-in-a-lifetime progressive candidate.
Sanders' supporters must have faith in him, and his campaign strategy; he has been playing this game for a long time. He and his team understand it better than anyone -- better than we do, and far better than the media.
Over the last several days, the Bernie Sanders presidential campaign has put forth a narrative that suggests if the super delegates voted according to the vote of their state then Sanders will win the Democratic presidential nomination.
If Trump is the nominee, the establishment Republicans will very likely mount a third party campaign. Conversely, if Trump has the most delegates and he is denied nomination, he will very likely run as an independent. So expect a three-way race, one way or the other. And if either third party candidate wins some states and none gets an Electoral College majority, under the Constitution the election would be thrown into the (Republican) House to pick the next president. That would probably be House Speaker Paul Ryan. This is a revolutionary year, but revolutions fail more often than they succeed. Wouldn't it be the height of irony if after all the politicized anger at the shafting of working people -- represented by Sanders on the left and (weirdly) by Trump on the right -- the financial and political establishment managed to keep the lid on, with one of the most conventional rightwing and pro-corporate figures in American politics, Paul Ryan?
