Earl Ofari Hutchinson

Carson's poll surge, though, does show that he's got the eye and ear of legions of GOP rank and file voters.

Democracy in America is on life support. If we don't soon rally en masse to its defense, corporate interests will pull the plug. Sanders is the only candidate to fully realize what's at stake, to tell the truth, and to articulate what WE, the People, must do.

My Stealth Campaign for President

So far, my plan is working perfectly. If I can remain largely unknown throughout the primary season, the nomination is as good as won. The Republican Party used to brag that it was a big tent. After the last two weeks, the GOP has become a circus tent.

5 Questions About the Republican Presidential Debates

Alan Schroeder | Posted 05.27.2015 | Politics
Alan Schroeder

The idea was to prevent chaos. Instead, efforts to control this season's Republican presidential primary debates have injected greater uncertainty into an already volatile process. With somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 candidates jockeying for position, the upcoming series of jousts is already beginning to resemble a survival-of-the-fittest reality show.

To win in 2016, the party's leaders should recognize what regular people already know. Polling finds overwhelming support for the wind production tax credit, including 63 percent of registered Republicans. It's time for the Republican presidential field to see that swing state voters want their energy clean, and they want it made at home.

I don't expect to share Cruz's views, but I do believe a self-proclaimed Christian candidate should take positive action to improve people's lives. Cruz seems more interested in being the troublemaker-in-chief than building the city on the hill. Just look at his naysaying on climate change.
