No Donald, I Won’t Vote for You

At a subsequent rally when he gave his familiar speech to another big crowd he demonstrated to me that he and his followers are still focused on the big picture. His campaign won’t be sent…

The Primary Race After New York

In the last debate Bernie Sanders was asked to list instances when Hillary Clinton’s vote was influenced by donations from billionaires and corporations. Some of his supporters wondered why he didn’t cite the specific examples we’ve been reading about in the news. Instead he talked about the general effects of corruption. He probably knew that…
