Exxon Mobil knew about climate change nearly a decade before the issue was even brought into the public domain-- in the early 1980s-- and instead of doing anything about it, they financed the denial of it. And now, climate change is gone and the new terminology is climate chaos, because we are no longer in climate change. We are now dealing with the actual consequences. Think about how much could have been prevented. How many lives and how much resource could have been prevented, if those who first identified the problem had stepped forth to solve it as opposed to covering it up. #exxon   #climatechange   #therealratigan   #dylanratigan

We already spend sixty four percent of our health care money on ten percent of our population. How about instead of spending a small fortune every time somebody wants to deal with whatever the issue may be and spending two thirds of the money on ten percent of the population, how about helping the ten percent of the population that's sick in the first place to reduce their diabetes to reduce their obesity to help them deal with their smoking? You're dealing with an insane concept here of overspending on a minority population then make the entire country pay for it as opposed to doing what a rational person would do which is to identify the acute problem, hot spot it, overwhelm it with positive resources and ultimately reduce your health care spending. #dylanratigan   #therealratigan   #healthcarespending   #healthcare   #newscommentaries

For all the people that evoke the Constitution when it comes to their gun rights, I wonder where they are when it comes to the total compromising of our democracy that is represented by the way our very electoral districts are drawn up. Gerrymandering is an issue that has been around for far too long. The technology is in place to obliterate it completely with independent districting. There's a million ideas to solve the problem, and yet none of the Constitutionalists, none of the American Rhetoricians, none of the great patriots of our nation are stepping up to confront the structural compromise that has completely corrupted our democracy, that is Gerrymandering. And that perplexes me. #dylanratigan   #election2016   #therealratigan   #gerrymandering

They shouldn't call American trade agreements free trade agreements. They should call American trade agreements slave trade agreements because they are written by lobbyists for multinationals and banks Companies like Nike, companies like Apple. That make their money by getting American policy makers to change our policies in order to deliberately subsidize the foreign production at slave labor rates of things like iPhones and sneakers, that are then made in China to be sold back to Americans at extraordinarily high prices. The illusion of free trade is actually rigged trade for the explicitly benefit of American multinationals looking to capitalize on slave labor off shore." #freetrade   #multinationals   #dylanratigan   #therealratigan

Did you know that the democratic and republican party are the ones who determine who participates in our presidential debates? Not only do they determine who participates in the presidential debates, they determine who the moderator is going to be. This is nowhere in the US constitution. This is not a law of the US government. This is a private company, a private entity, that is owned by the democratic party and the republican party working together in collusion to ensure that only members of the democratic party and only members of the republican party will ever be given the national platform on national media to participate in a national presidential debate. How could that possibly ever be considered a democracy, particularly in the era of the internet where the amount of individuals and information that is accessible to the American people is at an all time high? And yet, a very small group of politicians in the democratic and republican party collude to determine who can be in the presidential debate and who cannot. Someone needs to sue both of them for closing the rest of America out of the presidential process.

Dennis Hastert is your classic Illinois politician: pure hypocrite, pure liar, pure scumbag, okay? Not only is he a classic Illinois politician, he is a classic American politician. He is a man with a sex scandal replacing another man with a sex scandal, whose prosecuting a man who had a sex scandal. And all these men with sex scandals are walking around beating their chests talking about how immoral Bill Clinton is with his sex scandal while they're busy keeping their own sex scandal in the closet. This is why Americans do not participate in the American political system at the rate that they do not, because they validly are of the belief that men like Dennis Hastert are in charge and they are the most weasel-y, underhanded, underlying, unreliable, lying individuals that this country has ever seen. #hastert   #politics   #corruption   #sexscandals   #billclinton   #therealratigan   #dylanratigan

How can an electoral system be considered pure when the people that nominate the choices for whom we vote is only a few hundred people out of 300 million? Yeah, sure 3 million people may be able to vote or at least those over 18 but who are they voting for and who decides who they get to vote for? About 200 people determine who the nominated candidates are in the first place across the entire presidential field at least in terms of who finances them. It's impossible to consider something a democracy when the choice for who you choose from is determined by less than 1 one hundredth of 1% of the entire population. Just because it feels good to vote doesn't mean you're in a democracy if someone else controls the choices that you get to vote on. #election2016   #democracy   #therealratigan   #dylanratigan

Electoral system is wacked.
I wondered something for a while...Premise: in 1776 The constitution allowed for 'representatives' primarily due to distance/time for travel. 
So, now with internet banking, could this arrangement be changed. Something a lot more closer to a pure democracy is now possible. Why don't we go that direction.
Obviously, some revolutionary reform is needed for this. I also am fully aware we might want more representatives than fewer as it is harder to buy them off.

Does the African American community really want cops to wear GoPros? Does every American really want cops to wear GoPros? The police force in every town in America is the most significant thing that we have for a basic civil society and right now our ability to trust that police force is at an all time low. And yet, the technology is accessible to make that trust and restore that trust immediately. Why wouldn't they do that? #dylanratigan   #therealratigan   #copsandgopros   #newscommentaries   #newscommentary

What would Wyatt Earp say ? What does Clint think...wait never mind, an empty chair and a gopro has been done hasn't it? hehe
Gopros wont make anyone safer. Especially if sometimes they are turned off. An immediate uplink is needed with 3rd party data storage.
As I see it the system is broken... and until the 'power is in the streets' I really doubt any progress will be made.
Is the republican view that 'burning the place to the ground' is preferable to the slow burn promoted by the democrats? Smart man suggested that once.
like politics, drawing it down to the lowest level WILL happen. And in that circumstance the 2nd amendment and the 1st , should swap spots.

You really have to appreciate the fact that Donald Trump is one of only two presidential candidates that actually tells you where he is coming from Imagine if everybody running for president actually shared with you their deepest, darkest, most screwed up possible belief system. The beautiful thing about Donald Trump is that he can be trusted to tell you exactly what he is thinking. The beautiful thing about Bernie Sanders, he can be trusted to tell you exactly what he is thinking. The rest of the presidential candidates are simply parroting and pandering with poll-tested talking points. At least Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are speaking from their heart, even if their heart is dark and disgusting. #therealratigan   #dylanratigan   #election2016   #presidentialcandidates   #trump   #sanders   #newscommentaries

Imagine how slavery would have polled in 1865. Do you think it would have polled well? Imagine how allowing women to vote would have polled? The fact of the matter is very simple. As long as the politicians offer no leadership, they don't campaign in any states ever, and simply rely on enhanced data collection to pander to the lowest common denominator of fear and desire. American leadership will be a thing that you'll only hear about in museums. #therealratigan   #dylanratigan   #politics   #politicians

It's our inability to create access to clean water and access to clean air. Two of the simplest things that so many of us take for granted and yet 5,000 children a day die of diarrhea and we still have all the technology to address it. We simply have yet to muster the will to deploy the technology to save those children. It's not about the money. It's not about the technology. It's simply about the awareness. Most people don't even know it's happening. #therealratigan   #dylanratigan   #cleanwater   #cleanair
