If Clinton drops out, Democrats want Sanders

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/geneveith/2016/09/if-clinton-drops-out-democrats-want-sanders/

What would happen if Hillary Clinton really is having serious health problems to the point of having to drop out of the race? I’m not saying she is or that this is likely, but it’s an interesting mental experiment. Donald Trump, who is 70, could also have a breakdown that could force him to withdraw.

If the party’s candidate can no longer run, the Democratic National Committee would choose a replacement. The same holds true in the Republican party, though the RNC could choose to reconvene the convention delegates, an option not available for the Democrats. The national committees consist of members from each state. The Democratic National Committee has some 300 members; the Republican counterpart has 150...

WHY THE SUPREME COURT SHOULD TAKE ON POLITICAL CORRUPTION IN WISCONSIN

http://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/why-the-supreme-court-should-take-on-political-corruption-in-wisconsin

Next week, the Supreme Court is scheduled to consider whether it will hear an appeal of a Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling that, last year, halted a criminal investigation and ordered the destruction of all the evidence it gathered. The case is about the seemingly peripheral issue of judicial recusal. But it brings together two of the biggest disrupters of American democracy today: the surge, after the Citizens United decision struck down limits on independent spending, of private influence in elections; and the politicization of the highest courts in many states. For the past eight years, Wisconsin has been a laboratory testing the toxicity of this combination...

Cincinnati Enquirer: Hillary Clinton for president

http://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/nation-now/2016/09/23/cincinnati-enquirer-clinton-endorsement/90911078/

For almost 100 years, the Enquirer has endorsed Republicans for president, but not Trump.

Presidential elections should be about who’s the best candidate, not who’s the least flawed...

Students Are Pulling a Kaepernick All Over America — and Being Threatened for It

https://theintercept.com/2016/09/23/students-are-pulling-a-kaepernick-all-over-america-and-being-threatened-for-it/

STUDENTS ARE BEING threatened with punishment for not participating in rituals surrounding the national anthem or Pledge of Allegiance — and they are fighting back.

Since NFL 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat during the national anthem in August to protest oppression of people of color, many Americans, particularly professional athletes and students, have followed suit. But their constitutional right to engage in such gestures of dissent is not always being respected...

What now? Sanders supporters shift allegiance to Clinton, Trump – and Stein

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/jul/13/sanders-supporters-vote-trump-clinton-stein

Of nearly 400 responses from Guardian readers, just 20 plan to shift their vote to Donald Trump but Green party nominee Jill Stein is an attractive alternative

Ending an at-times bitter and contentious Democratic primary, Bernie Sanders endorsed Hillary Clinton on Tuesday, asking his supporters to turn their attention to putting the former secretary of state in the White House – but to bear in mind the issues on which he campaigned...

What if I told you it doesn't help? What would you do if you found out that none of it matters? 
That it's all controlled by forces more powerful and uncaring than we can conceive, and they will never let it get better down here. What would you do?

TWO BY ABRAHAM LINCOLN: 

"We may congratulate ourselves that this cruel war is nearing its end.
It has cost a vast amount of treasure and blood. . . .
It has indeed been a trying hour for the Republic; but
I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes
me to tremble for the safety of my country. As a result of the war,
corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places
will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong
its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth
is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.
I feel at this moment more anxiety for the safety
of my country than ever before, even in the midst of war.
God grant that my suspicions may prove groundless."

The passage appears in a letter from Lincoln to (Col.) William F.
Elkins, Nov. 21, 1864.

See: http://www.ratical.org/corporations/Lincoln.html



"These capitalists generally act harmoniously and in
concert to fleece the people, and now that they have got
into a quarrel with themselves, we are called upon to
appropriate the people's money to settle the quarrel."

speech to Illinois legislature, Jan. 1837.
See Vol. 1, p. 24 of Lincoln's Complete Works,
ed. by Nicolay and Hay, 1905)
