No other candidate, Democratic or Republican, has endorsed proposals as distinctively tailored to contemporary concerns within this state as Bernie Sanders. For that reason, North Carolinians ought not to miss out on the unique opportunity that could very well be a Bernie Sanders presidency.
New data, with help from Google, illustrate unprecedented -- and until now, largely overlooked -- forest loss in Southeast Asia and West Africa, among other hotspots.
The second debate of the Republican nomination race is fast approaching, so in preparation I thought it would be a good time to take a look at the entire GOP field once again. First, though, a word about the debates themselves.
Range voting eliminates spoilers and splitting the vote between two good candidates. It gives voters a chance to show how much they dislike someone, rather than just being silent. For these reasons, Range Voting is superior to Instant Runoff Voting.
Let's begin with a qualifier: Us saying the Pope is better for women than Republicans does not mean we think the Pope is some new progressive superhero. He's got 2000 years of dogmatic baggage to contend with.

As for issues like paid family leave and keeping Social Security intact that would make the lives of women better, Carly Fiorina's campaign statements are resoundingly silent.
Republicans are playing politics with the nuclear safety of the nation and deserve the highest level of disdain and condemnation to reflect the great shame and discredit they bring upon their party, the Senate and America.
It wasn't that long ago that the pundits had the 2016 presidential contest pegged as a Clinton-Bush match-up. While that may still occur, I wouldn't place a bet on it.

Sarah Palin is no longer a candidate, but her influence lives on. Donald Trump is the Republican frontrunner and Ted Cruz is eager to take his place if he falters.
