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

We Are All Trumped!

By Alberto Pupo

For decades he has cried wolf, teasing and prodding a media hungry for his arrival. As of 6/16/2015 Donald Trump the man, the myth, the legend himself has decided to step into the circus that will be the Republican primary. His announcement designed to steal the “Bush Thunder” was chock full of Reaganisms all the way down to his campaign slogan. Trump was meandering and controversial and naturally banking on something verydonaldchump

important the stupidity and lack of political knowledge particularly found among those who Donald chump will be voting in the Republican primary? Can the “Donald” win this primary? Many scoff at the idea, but then again an actor can’t be elected President twice right? What about a semi-illiterate cowboy? This can’t happen this is America right? Uh oh…..  Continue reading

From Indicted to President?

By Alberto Pupo

Should the indicted run for office? Rick Perry has entered the fray. The man famously known for not knowing which government agency he would abolish, and who has been going through a bit of “legal trouble” has officially entered the presidential race. While this entry into the race does not come to a surprise to many the fact that he is currently still trying to fight an indictment is a bit shocking. How can a Nation that is supposed to be a8-19-2014-james-richard-perry-booking-photo model for the world allow an candidate not just run for political office but to run for the Presidency of the United States? What happened to morality and the rule of law? Does this not apply evenly?

 

Rick Perry is still under indictment and this is a fact. However despite this he is still running for office. The incredible thing is that most of the corporate media seems to be mum on this inconvenient truth. Yet this is something that the people of this Nation should be hammering on him a lot harder. If any minority in this nation would even consider running for dog catcher they would be immediately disqualified from pursuing any form of elected office. Yet how is rick Perry justified in even making this attempt? The savvy Conservative will off course scream Continue reading

2014 Midterms= American Stupidity

By Alberto Pupo

Republicans take the Senate! In another exercise in electoral futility the mid-term elections once again provide proof of the conflicted American voter once again the overall political ignorance is on display. Conservatives who have been the cause of all gridlock, have shutdown the government and stymied progress at all levels of government are given a mandate to govern? Why does this happen? What is the reason for the cognitive dissonance that exists within the American political psyche.

 The results have been pouring in and Republicans have taken control of the Senate. Now that Republicans have control the first order of business is to gut Obamacare. If the President turns around and Vetos they will then move to Impeachment. The Republicans will then bring up progressive legislation like cutting the safety net, making abortion illegal, and giving every man, woman, and child a gun. Expect to see wild and radical proposals Election-2014as these elections will seem like a ”mandate” to take the Country straight toward Fascism. The American people however overwhelmingly voted for this wonderful scenario. Instead of moving the country a more progressive direction they move it the opposite way.

 

So what is the reason for the Continue reading
