Money has totally corrupted the US political system ! Vested interests have held sway for far too long & every element of Government has had to, inevitably, "dance to their tune". The elected representatives become mere muppets !

Bob Pester
It's time to remind Trump & his cronies that they have fiddled with the US system to the point it has lost any hint of the US being a democracy - it's a great big FARCE ! It has been perpetuated to a greater or lesser extent ACROSS PARTY LINES TOO ! Vested interests, Super PACS & electoral college have held the power with the public becoming pawns in a far "bigger game"!

'The American People Should Be Pissed Off': Critics Say Trump Tax Dodging Exposes System Rotten to the Core | Common Dreams News Trump & his cohorts have proudly stated they get away with "fiddling the system because they are smart".

Opinion | The Real 'Hoax' in America Is Record Wall Street Profits as Nation's Jobless Millions Cannot Afford Rent

We can't ignore this forever.

Trump is a "twisted" bastard - he will regularly contort the law to suit his own narrative & lies at the time in a flagrant way - be aware ! He will hoodwink the gullible to succor his bombastic cunning & use it to flout & sidestep if it is to his advantage !

Republicans have used a 'law and order' message to win elections before. This is why Trump could do it again

History should give Trump reasons for optimism. The presidential elections in 1968 and 1988 provide a template for Republican victory on a law-and-order platform in 2020.

Trump Is Hurting America and Democracy by Letting China Take the Lead on Climate Change | Washington Monthly - Trump's myopic views have led the US into a "blind alley" & it will have wide ranging effects. His incredibly superficial & often spurious reasoning on a host of critical issues shows a distinct ineptitude but designed for "mass consumption" of the increasingly busy masses !

Trump Is Hurting America and Democracy by Letting China Take the Lead on Climate Change | Washington Monthly

Every day in the Trump administration brings such new immediate outrages and crises that must be addressed in the short term, that it can be difficult to maintain focus on the long-term damage it is doing to America and the world. That said, since no amount of journalism seems to be making a den ...

'Get rid of the ballots.' Trump won't commit to peaceful transfer of power

Eugene Robinson and Michael Steele react to the president of the United States failing to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he loses to Joe Biden.

Biden Isn't a Progressive. The Question Is How Far He Can Be Pushed. There is no question the US system has been debased & vested interests have exploited the situation. It needs a quantum shift back to a level-playing ground. "Trickle Down" was THE BIGGEST HOAX IMPOSED ON THE US ! Currently Democracy is in name only Trump added the final nails to the coffin it rests in. What an opportunity we have to restore it !!!!

Biden Isn't a Progressive. The Question Is How Far He Can Be Pushed.

If political momentum among Democrats continues to move leftward, Biden may be movable.

The Democratic presidential nominee knows that halting fossil fuel subsidies is imperative. Why doesn’t the DNC? - Here the acknowledgement WHAT IS SO WRONG WITH THE DEMS !! THEIR "TOP TABLE' IS, & HAS BEEN, STIFLING REAL PROGRESS !! That's why so many great candidates fell away ! Money & vested interests are dictating in the wings !!

When It Comes to Climate Change, It’s Joe Biden Versus the DNC

The Democratic presidential nominee knows that halting fossil fuel subsidies is imperative. Why doesn’t the DNC?

About time Biden came "up to speed" on Climate, etc issues - but has he the resolve in the face of attitudes in the Dems "top table"? They have marginalised, consistently, any with a Progressive disposition up till now! Clearly the Super PACS & vested interests "in the wings" have had undue influence ! Hardly democratic !!! Will the Dems ever become "enlightened"?

Editorial: Climate change will impact S.A. Biden gets it.

The crisis of climate change raises profound questions about our responsibility to future generations.
