"A significant piece in advancing this narrative was her choice to use a private email server for official government business. When emails began appearing in media sources, these concerns seemed to be realized. One minor side note to this national story was a short email sent by Clinton in 2010 to one of her aides asking, 'Are you still in basketball crazed Indianoplace?'"

"Each June LGBT+ persons all over the country gather to commemorate a legendary movement in their political liberation. While the origin story varies, most historians point to the summer of 1969 during which riots broke out all over the country as LGBT+ persons began to protest an overtly oppressive political system—most notably the police brutality and murder occurring in the streets"

"So you wanna punch some Nazis. Who doesn’t? I support groups like Antifa in a general sense for the sole reason that there needs to be someone, somewhere, reminding all of us that living inside a Corporate State under economic fascism and just going along with it is...insane."

Another piece on the "State of the Political Left"

"We hear the typical narrative of my generation countless times; Lazy, entitled, whiny and coddled to much as a child. The term ‘Millennial’ has changed from what was once just a means to identify a generation into a ghastly insult slung around by elder generations, now being called ‘Snowflakes’."

"First hand experience with the Progressive Independent Party and dealing with other startups last year brought me to the realization that unless progressives can unite around three to five core concepts and run as a voting bloc on those, they’ll all continue to get trampled as individual parties fighting over nomenclature, semantics, and ego in some Quixotic, demented spiral to see who can fade into oblivion wearing the coolest homemade tshirt the fastest."

"Bernie Sanders is the most popular politician in the country. That’s not hubris or gloating, that’s by the numbers. Medicare is second only to Social Security as the most popular government program. Federal funding for public education is third. Looking at these numbers, two things become immediately clear: The most popular politician is going to introduce legislation that will enable the United States of America to finally join the rest of the industrialized world by recognizing health care as a basic human right."

"And I don’t have time for anger. Maybe I am privileged enough not to. Maybe my ability to tune out and turn off is the exact reason I should be tuning in and turning on. But there’s an overwhelming powerlessness that accompanies watching the soft glow out on the horizon of America burning to the ground. There’s also a part of me that thinks maybe the fire they claim is raging is nothing but a hologram–or certainly isn’t as ravaging as they claim. Or is that privilege talking again?"

"So what does a party do when their message is “We feel just fine about losing 1,031 seats nationwide over the last eight years, and look forward to taking your money so we can lose more”? They abandoned the 50 state strategy, they gave all the influence back to the lobbyists, and they’ve all but ceded every district in the US that isn’t a major metropolitan area to the GOP."

"The idea that progressives will have all the time in the world to hold an elected Democrat’s “feet to the fire” once they’re in office has been one of the selling points neoliberals offer every election cycle. Along with that comes the inevitable litany of easily formatted reasons to never pass a single piece of progressive legislation as a Democrat."
