High Drug Prices Are Killing Americans

Americans should not have to live in fear that they will go bankrupt if they get sick. People should not have to go without the medication they need just because their elected officials aren't willing to challenge the drug lobby. The public is fed up, and they have a right to be fed up.

George W. Bush -- Not Bernie Sanders -- Is The Real 'Socialist'

H. A. Goodman | Posted 08.27.2015 | Politics
H. A. Goodman

George W. Bush, not Bernie Sanders, is the real "socialist" of our generation, primarily because the economy collapsed under his tenure and as a result, the conservative president began an ongoing program of government stimulus into various industries.

The Clinton Campaign Didn't Learn from History: Underestimating Barack, Underestimating Bernie

Michael Shammas | Posted 08.14.2015 | Politics

Bernie seems to be an alternative to the politics of Clinton. That makes him a threat to the "billionaire" class he is wont to criticize, to Super PACs fueled by Citizens United, and to establishment politicians like Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton ignores Bernie Sanders at her own peril.

Bernie Sanders Continues To Electrify Crowds. The Justice Department Has Clinton's Email Server. See The Difference?

H. A. Goodman

The words "FBI" and "Justice Department" should never be associated with a presidential campaign. Record crowds of enthusiastic supporters, totaling around 100,000 people in various states, should be associated with a presidential campaign.

Despite what you read in the headlines, Hillary Clinton still has a commanding lead over Bernie Sanders nationwide, and beats Republicans in head-to-head match-ups nationwide. But here's how Hillary could lose the election, or even the nomination, if she doesn't watch out.

Is the Black Lives Matter Movement Sabotaging Itself By Disrupting Bernie Sanders Rallies?

Marvin Meadors | Posted 08.11.2015 | Politics

Perhaps this emphasis on real world events instead of abstractions about economic justice will help Sanders with the activists in the Black Lives Matter movement and people of color in general. However, it would be remiss for such activists to let the perfect be the enemy of the good!

Branding Senator Sanders as "socialist" scares many people. But in his case there's nothing to be afraid of because his definition of socialism means preserving free market and civil liberties and adding a higher level of social justice.

When Republicans Nominate a Billionaire, Only Bernie Sanders Will Save Democrats

H. A. Goodman | Posted 08.03.2015 | Entertainment
H. A. Goodman

All the GOP or their billionaire candidate have to do is tell voters that Clinton was against gay marriage. All they need to say is that she voted for Iraq and was inclined to accept Keystone. With Bernie Sanders, there are no questions about honesty. There's no scandal. There's only a GOP frightened of facing it's polar opposite.

Bernie Sanders for President

Sen. Bernie Sanders has spent a lifetime fighting against this exploitation and motivating people to take action. This is why the Friends of the Earth Action PAC enthusiastically endorses Sen. Sanders for President of the United States.

Hillary Clinton Has A 'White Liberal' Problem That Will Help Bernie Sanders Become Democratic Nominee

H. A. Goodman | Posted 08.01.2015 | Politics
H. A. Goodman

It's tough to represent the hopes of Americans hurt by entrenched political interests when you've taken money from Donald Trump, or you've already run a campaign ad in 2008 that utilizes a "racist sub-message." For these reasons, Clinton's problem with white liberals, and Sanders's eventual appeal to minority voters, will enable Vermont's Senator to win the Democratic nomination.

Unlike Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders Never Says, 'When I Become President, I Will Answer Your Question'

The word "cop-out" has been used by several publications to explain Clinton's viewpoint on both the TPP and Keystone XL.

Reason #1 to Vote Bernie: Sanders Does 'Better Than Clinton' Against GOP in Swing States

H. A. Goodman | Posted 07.24.2015 | Politics
H. A. Goodman

A precedent exists of Clinton's name recognition and political prowess giving way to a relative unknown who electrifies the masses; Sanders is filling arenas for a reason, and it's a similar reason to what made Obama so unique in 2008.

Bernie Sanders Won't Accept Money From Billionaires. Donald Trump Donated $100,000 to Hillary Clinton.

H. A. Goodman | Posted 07.15.2015 | Politics
H. A. Goodman

Bernie Sanders doesn't need the money of billionaires, since most likely they'd be 'wasting' money on donating to his campaign. After all, Sanders is quoted in the Washington Post as saying things that no other politician in America would dare utter during an election cycle.

Open Letter to Congressman Luis Gutierrez: Bernie Sanders Is More Pro-Latino Than You

César Vargas | Posted 07.13.2015 | Latino Voices

Maybe, just maybe, Senator Bernie Sanders was so mum about immigration because he's been so busy fighting for every cause that disproportionately affects us? I don't know about you, but that makes him more pro-Latino than you.

How to Defeat Citizens United and Restore America's Faith in Elections

H. A. Goodman | Posted 07.13.2015 | Politics
H. A. Goodman

Future generations will look back at this election and either say that we defeated Citizens United by electing a man serious about defeating the Court's decision, or succumbed to the grip of corporations by voting against the interests of our democracy. America's democracy is in dire need of an honest man.

'Bernie Sanders Can Become President' Has Replaced 'I Like Him, But He Can't Win'

H. A. Goodman | Posted 07.07.2015 | Politics
H. A. Goodman

How many time have you heard the phrase, "I like Bernie Sanders, but he can't win," uttered by people who identify themselves as progressives? The facts, however, illustrate that "Bernie Sanders can win" and nobody in politics foreshadowed the Vermont Senator's latest surge in both Iowa and New Hampshire.

History shows Bernie Sanders was right. Hillary Clinton, Dick Cheney and others were wrong, and America and the Middle East are still experiencing the consequences of neoconservative foreign policy.

Why Bernie Sanders Will Become the Democratic Nominee and Defeat Any Republican in 2016

H. A. Goodman | Posted 07.30.2015 | Politics
H. A. Goodman

If Democrats simply vote based on their value system, Bernie Sanders can easily win the presidency. If they nominate Hillary Clinton out of despair, thinking this is still 1999, then email scandals and an Iraq War vote could mitigate any advantages a Democratic challenger has over Jeb Bush or another Republican.
