Have We Got Anything to Lose? The writer was accurate in September 2015 in predicting Trump's win and why he won. The question is whether any of the Democratic candidates is going to shape their election bids in a way that places them not as an alternative to Trump but as a better choice.

The Real Trump Card Donald Trump is doing what his supporters want. He is doing this purposefully to demonstrate that his supporters are way off base.

Dueling Values: Lessons from the Hamilton Contretemps The Hamilton cast's statement was ironic on several levels. That's what happens when one claims the high ground when your rivals aren't even climbing the same hill.

Progressive Hypocrisy Just how accepting, inclusive, and truth-seeking are progressives when they refuse to accept, include, and believe Trump's supporters?

Why Almost Everyone Was Wrong Anyone looking at Donald Trump logically rather than emotionally could have seen over a year ago that he was going to win the nomination and probably the general election.

The Grains of Truth So much ink and so many pixels have been spilled going back and forth regarding the qualities of the major-party candidates for POTUS. Their worst characteristics, however, are the source of their success.

The Death Knell of Representative Democracy in the USA The USA is headed for disaster as long as voters believe they have only two choices for president in this election. Our only hope as a nation from falling further into plutocracy is to send the decision to the House of Representatives.

Assange's Believe It or Not! Given how ridiculous political discourse between the two major party candidates for POTUS has been, more people ought to seriously think about a third way.

One Way Out The who-haw over Donald Trump's remarks underscores the extent to which the media are playing with people in this election. It is imperative the people seize this opportunity to reject the continued domination of the two major parties and participate in their own governance.

Five years and...? Organizationally and popularly, the progressive concerns espoused by Occupy Wall Street have not matured or developed along lines to be of any use to actually result in the change needed to fix what is wrong in the USA.

The Withering Away of Rights on the Left How are we supposed to move forward if political discourse has become nearly impossible? Vocabulary, issues, goals are all perpendicular to each other. Our only hope is for the most reasonable people to start putting their feet down and insisting everyone begin to start talking the same language.

Plan of Action The author has touched a nerve not only with the Occupy movement but also the Tea Party and Dr. Paul supporters. All over an attempt to debate the merits of contending courses of action.

A Developmental Educator's Plan to Address America's Political Problems The chief complaint by outsiders regarding the Occupy movement is that it hasn't tried to move into the mainstream to realize the change the movement has identified as needed in this country. A plan has been offered to take care of this issue and it will be presented at the National Gathering in Philadelphia in three weeks.
