Why Bernie Will Win – Part 5: His Pro-Business Agenda

In his recent speech at Georgetown, Bernie Sanders “buried the lead” to some extent while mounting his defense of Democratic Socialism: his vision for America is, in many ways, a Conservative one, in the sense that he is proposing what is in essence a uniquely and strongly “pro-business” agenda for…

Why Bernie Will Win – Part 4: The BIG Difference (Continued)

Ok – snap quiz – who are these two gentlemen pictured on the right? Hint: One was King George V of England and the other was Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany. You may be forgiven if you cannot tell which one is which – they were, after all, first cousins.…

Why Bernie Will Win – Part 4: The BIG Difference

This post is a very easy one to write, because it is, in effect, a simple question: Will Hillary Clinton represent the interests of the working people of America? Hillary: here is a woman who has “served” as First Lady of Arkansas, then First Lady of the USA, and then…

Why Bernie Will Win – Part 3: Foreign Policy

No one needs to discuss the differences on Foreign Policy that exist between Bernie and the Republican candidates. Those should be treated as a given.

Bernie vs. Ronnie Part III: This is Getting Weird

Big hullabaloo, brouhaha going on because the Democratic National Committee is only allowing 6 debates in the 2016 primary. Sanders and O’Malley are claiming this is just to “save” Hillary. Indeed, in 2008 they had 20+ debates, and Hillary lost. Now, the last time any Party only allowed 6 debates…

Bernie vs. Ronnie Part II: A Personal Note

The dismissive attitude with which the Beltway Media as well as political pundits and leaders are treating Bernie Sanders has sounded, in a way, reminiscent of the way in which people – including myself – viewed Ronald Reagan in 1980. People are constantly calling Bernie an “extremist” and a member…

Bernie versus Ronnie – The Pendulum Swings!!

People wonder why / how Bernie can be so popular — the reason is clear: he has been consistent in his Liberal beliefs for at least 40 years. Imagine, a politician who is true to his ideals, even when they are not popular; one who stays the course, keeps true…
