Why Lessig Should Run For President As A Republican

Derek Cressman | Posted 08.18.2015 | Politics
Derek Cressman

Lessig has said he would run as a Democrat and would choose someone like Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders as his vice president. That person would take over and run the country once the reform agenda had passed. And that is precisely why his plan won't work, even if he miraculously was elected.

Who do we want as President? The most sensible answer is that we should want the person who will make the wisest decision under these circumstances. One who has the intellect and sophistication to sift through sometimes conflicting "facts" and make an optimal choice.

Judge Judy for President

For all the people who feel it's finally time for a strong woman to become president, or for that matter simply a strong person of any gender who is willing to step up with the truth and a no-BS attitude, who is willing to look beyond political correctness to do the right thing, well... it's time for Judge Judy.

Rahna Epting | Posted 08.07.2015 | Black Voices
Rahna Epting

Unfortunately, too few of our elected officials and candidates are talking about race, too few are championing an awakening of our humanity, too few are willing to take on the systemic challenges of our country. Presidential candidates aren't going to be able to hide from this issue for long.

Dump the Trump

Presidential elections are not reality TV. This is self-governance. And just as money is now making a mockery of American democracy, the news media's obsession with ratings is now making a mockery of American politics.

We all know that some politicians tend to fib. Well, okay, maybe all politicians. We tolerate this, grudgingly, to a certain degree. But Ted Cruz has taken deception to such a grandiose level that it has flown off the charts.

What to Watch for in the First GOP "Debate"

Terry Connelly | Posted 08.04.2015 | Politics
Terry Connelly

This will work out to a total of about 10 minutes for each candidate over the life of the show. Sounds more like an extended high school musical audition than any sort of serious effort to identify the policy proposals and positions, and test the temperament, of the persons now seeking the presidency on the GOP side.

Much to the delight of political pundits, Democrats, and roughly one in five Republican voters, Donald Trump has taken the Presidential election season by storm, peddling his version of the "Straight Talk Express" from the Mexico border to the moneyed lobbies of his myriad properties and golf courses.

Next week on the date of the anniversary of the signing of the Act, Republican presidential primary contenders will be holding their first TV debate. Think about this for a moment: On the 50th Anniversary of the Voting Rights Act, the Republican party today, along with Chief Justice Roberts' 2014 Shelby v Holder decision, has done more to dismantle the Act, than any other effort in recent memory.
