On October 25, Argentinians will go the polls to elect their next democratic president who, for the first time since 2003, won't have "Kirchner" as a last name. But the choice Argentinians will really be making concerns not an individual but, rather, the type of country they want to recover.

After watching the first Democratic debate, it was not as entertaining as the Republican one, but politics isn't supposed to be entertaining.

Bernie Sanders is no Barack Obama, and smarter minds than mine will crunch these numbers, weigh them, and make their predictions. But as it stands tonight, a few hours out from the debate, Bernie Sanders is the man to beat--at least on the internet.

Robert Scheer

Go ahead and support Hillary Clinton, those of you for whom having the first female president is the top priority. Just admit that you will be voting for someone who has not only been profoundly wrong on the two most pressing issues of our time--economic injustice and the ravages of unbridled militarism--but seems hopelessly incapable of learning from her dangerous errors in judgment.

I have no doubt that Dr. Carson is a fantastic surgeon, and I highly encourage him to keep doing what he's good at, what made him famous, what made him loved and what kept him far too busy--presumably and understandably--to read the United States Constitution.

He May Be a Brain Surgeon, But Ben Carson Is no Expert on Islam

Ben Carson states that it makes perfect sense to reject a Muslim president for the reasons he states because the majority of American people agree with him. Really? Muslims don't agree with him. Christians, Jews, Atheists that understand our constitution do not agree with him.
