Keeping Score – Trump’s Broken Promises

Washington – Maybe you’ve forgotten, as I had, how snidely candidate Donald Trump declared war on Wall Street back in 2016, savaging Hillary Clinton as ”the puppet” of Wall Street – “they pull the strings” – and personally vowing to generate an economic renaissance that would lift the American middle class out of stagnation and […]

Voters Beware: Not of Fraud but an Undercount

Washington – If you’re thinking of voting by mail this fall, pay close attention to what happened in the primary elections across the country this spring and summer. Tens of thousands of mail ballots were disqualified and not counted. So we need to figure out how to beat this problem pronto – both at the […]

How Do Independents Get More Clout in Our Politics?

Washington – How about a pop quiz about  American politics? You’ll like this poll, especially if you’re in your 20s, 30s, and 40s,  because it deals a lot with Millennials and Gen Xers. But it does include everyone, even retirees over 65. Here’s the question: What’s been the fastest-growing political party or movement in the U.S. […]

Coming on PBS – How Can We Fix Our Democracy?

Missouri: The People vs The Politicians

Washington – They call Missouri the “Show Me State.” Well, this year the people of Missouri need to show us all whether they’re going to let the power brokers in the state legislature kill the election law reforms adopted by a majority of Missouri voters two years ago. Normally, when we talk politics in America, […]

Virginia: Women Lead Voting Reforms

Washington – No state has done more for voter rights and ballot access this year than Virginia, and women were the key drivers of those reforms. Go back half a dozen years and Virginia’s state government looked Deep South and Deep Red. The Virginia legislature was run by Republicans, mastered and marshaled by men. Democrats […]

What Wisconsin Tells Us for November

Washington –  Just a few months ago, the smart money in Democratic political circles was no longer betting on Wisconsin as a likely winnable state in the November election battle to unseat President Trump. But the surprising outcome of the state’s April 7 election has put Wisconsin back in play. Wisconsin voters set off Republican […]

Teaching THE DEMOCRACY REBELLION in Your Community
