The writer compared this one-day sit-in which called attention to the many times the majority Speaker of the House has refused to allow discussion or voting on bills proposed by minority members to the 10 times in history that elected officials of both parties have "shut down our government," costing billions of dollars each time.

If it turns out as it appears that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are the major parties' candidates for the presidency this year, one of their clear-cut differences will be their positions on global climate change. Secretary Clinton is a climate hawk; Mr. Trump is a climate denier.

Win or lose, Bernie Sanders has made this Democratic primary the most substantive in my lifetime. Not that Hillary Clinton's campaign is devoid of ideas. She has some thoughtful ones. But the boldness of Sanders' proposals is what has driven this historic and instructive debate.

Justin Curmi

The "flip-flop" or the "change of position" is one of the most centered piece topics in political races and everyday politics. If one was to reflect on the "change of position" and its dimensions, it will become apparent that motivation is the most important component of it.

If the same old politicians are feeling the wrath of voters in this bizarre current election cycle, why are the same old pundits getting a free pass? We know that people are angry and feeling left out by the establishment politicians, and have channeled that anger toward alternative candidates.
