The People Demand Progress!

By Alberto Pupo

This is the end of the status quo. In what has been a strange and vicious primary fight, several things have become evident. The people are tired of politics as usual and have a desire to embrace a more Progressive America. This is not a spontaneous overnight reaction. This all started with Occupy Wall St., while the occupations were violently brought to an end (via the corrupt use of the Patriot Act), Americans everywhere awoke to dna-progressive-societythe realization that our economic system was corrupt and rigged for 1% of the Nation. Now we have a candidate who supported and endorsed the movement when everyone else decided to engage in political cowardice and support their Corporate Donors. Now in 2016 there is a golden moment the Republican Party is in shambles with no clear leader and there is a candidate in Bernie Sanders who can usher in Continue reading

Do Not Give in to the Fear in 2016…

By Alberto Pupo

The new year has arrived. After a long drawn out orgy of polls and Trump madness, this year an ultimate decision will be made as the Obama era comes to a close and we begin anew with a blank slate. The choices this year are interesting because for the first time in forever?

A Grand Irony

By Alberto Pupo

A white woman, black man, and white man enter the 2016 presidential race who is the progressive?

Bernie Sanders the whitest and oldest of all the 2016 presidential 6a00d8341c652b53ef0148c77cf9c3970c-800wicandidates is also the standard bearer for the idea of progress. Meanwhile the white woman and black man represent some of the most reactionary political views akin to something found in a more misbegotten and savage era. This is why politics and life in general is so ironic.

 

Last week’s announcement of a Bernie Sanders presidential run has taken social media by storm (even some traditional media outlets have weighed in). His candidacy has raised a large amount of money from small donors and is basically showcasing a progressive platform which is exiting the every day average American. The source of this Continue reading
