Presidential Candidates & Martial Law

<p><em><strong>Presidential Candidates &amp; Martial Law</strong></em></p> <p>&#160;</p> <p><em><strong><img src="images/8806/flags.jpg" alt="" /></strong></em></p> <p>&#160;</p> <p>The next President of the U.S. may eventually be the result of single-issue votes, but not all will be the same issue. The litmus test votes can sometimes rise to the point of a mandate for the winning candidate. But voters looking to find the least dangerous candidate might want to start thinking about which candidate is the most prone to imposing improper use of Martial Law and States of Emergency. Yes, we&#8217;re talking about the risk for suspension of Habeas Corpus. The Patriot Act is just the edge of a slippery slope to losing some…

The Backbone of America?

The Bernie Plant at Trump's rally hollered that, 'Illegals are the backbone of America.' Some of them come here for a better life, to escape the drug cartel violence Mexico can't seem to quell; some come for jobs, and some come to join gangs and are busily committing crimes against Americans. I deci…

Can Capitalism Change

I have watched people die, kill themselves, lose homes, work for next to nothing while the government takes a large chunk of their pay and tax refunds to pay their educa…

In America, I understand that the month of February is 'designated' as "Black History Month" and that the rest of the months of the year I suppose should be "White History Months"?   Does that mean that my "Blackness" ceases to exist beyond the month of February? Do those who celebrate "Black H…

When in the 90s the Berlin wall came down and Germany was reunified, the world took it to mean the irreversible end of the Soviet Empire.

Making Predictions In A New Political Climate

Polling is a notoriously inexact science, and previous elections have seen pollsters get it tremendously wrong. Neil Kinnock’s loss to John Major in the 1992 UK elections and Alf Landon’s to FDR in the 1936 US presidential elections, in particular, stick in the memory. The 2008 US presid…
