At the end of the League's stint, the Repubs & Dems rejected about 80 proposed questioners for the well as numerous tough questions. Show More Summary

The Extreme Ignorance of the Don... and the Rigged Game

Let me state again at the outset: I don't support Clinton, either. In fact, there isn't a single candidate running this year that I would even consider supporting... not necessarily because of the individual, but rather because the entire System is rigged. Show More Summary

Reject Two-Party Politics in the USA

Libya 2 - Obama Violates Statutory Law & the Constitution... and Trump Continues to Disintegrate

With the expansion of the ISIS War into Libya, Obama again violates both the War Powers Act and the Constitution.

The Farcical Kabuki Theater Election Campaigns Continue

1. It's all about the individual personal traits of the candidates. There has been close to nothing said about the ISSUES, especially not anything with any semblance of depth.2.

The Deceitfulness of Clinton is Astounding

At the Democratic Convention, Clinton made the following statement regarding the VP choice, Kaine: "He's a Progressive who...". If that weren't so comical, it would be tragic. It's a bald-faced lie.

The Big Problem is Not Immigrants, or Black People, or...

Poor People, or Any Minority, or Even "Terrorists". Our biggest problem is Oligarchs and/or Plutocrats.
