 What happened in high profile cities like Detroit and Camden, NJ was not the result of Democratic local governments.

The Fed says a government manipulated unemployment rate of 5.5% is what is now considered "full employment". 

Right wing media will again spin what is happening in Baltimore as simply a racial issue. Crazed "thugs" go wild. State of emergency declared. National Guard activated. The preferred solution of a ruling class.

The thing about standard Democratic responses is that they are the same old standard, stale responses. They talk about punishing the sins of the owners of capital who finance the GOP.

They want to raise their taxes to pay for new spending on infrastructure. Although infrastructure is a source of ongoing spending and creates employment, the projects are temporary and subject to appropriations.

IMO, what someone needs to do is begin talking about tax and healthcare reforms that would allow manufactures to be more competitive with low wage countries. Many of the goods we consume need not be produced in foreign countries, and I believe we can reverse the trend. However, there is no reason why American brands being consumed by foreigners should not be produced in other countries. Maximizing profits has become a new religion and the zealots, if not rejoicing, ignore the declining standard of living at home and the potential for social upheaval.

On the heels of the success of the "47 Traitors" petition, I decided to create one of my own. If you believe voters registered with no party affiliation should be allowed to vote in primaries, please sign and share.

Con artists have been filing bogus tax returns and collecting millions. Steve Kroft finds out how far the scam has gone and why the IRS hasn't been able to stop it.

Independent voters in Ohio protested on primary day at the Secretary of State's office in Columbus about their status as first class taxpayers, but second class voters. The protest was part of the Voting Rights are Primary campaign being coordinated nationally by IndependentVoting.org.

In a recent episode of the Daily Show with Jon Stewart, the late-night comedian highlighted the fact that the media often creates its own narrative and decides which candidates are viable.

The nation needs nonpartisan primaries. We don't just need action in the states, but at the federal level. It is time to hear from President Obama.

The trend of newly-registered Florida voters rejecting both major political parties continues unabated as the combined total of voters known as NPAs (no party affiliation) and minor-party voters has surpassed the total of a major party in 11 counties.
