We have the Liberal Plutocratic Party and the Conservative Plutocratic Party. They both serve the same master. Who's more likely to protect us, a multi-millionaire corporate lawyer or a sub-millionaire social democrat?

Re: “Your Participation is Mandatory: The INDY’s 2016 Primary Endorsements

3 key issues: trade, war and Wall St., make Bernie's "coattails" longer (beats Trump by more and helps other Dem candidates). Consider head-to-head general election polls since Feb. 10, 2016... http://www.alternet.org/election-2016/why-…

Re: “Why climate change is more perilous to our national security than Syrian refugees

Proudly's straw man argument[1] focuses on totalitarianism to avoid the central theme of global warming, the proof of human causes of which is simple: Carbon-12 with few heavy isotopes C-13/14 (thus only from ancient fossil fuels) has hugely increased in atmospheric CO2 since 1800. See Figure 3.9: "Climate models with and without human activities"[2] - Mandia, "Climate Change: The Smoking Guns for Humans," Suffolk Community College, NY, 2012.
