Big money will be talking plenty between now and November 2020. How does it make us do what it wants, even going against our own self-interest?

One of big money’s targets will be the “Prop 13 reform” initiative on the ballot in California. Winning Prop 13 reform will have repercussions...

“Tax The Rich” is an idea approved by more and more people across the political spectrum according to multiple polls taken in 2019.

Right now we have a very real chance to move this popular idea forward. California passed Prop 13 in 1978, flattened property tax for residents and...

1. AN UNEXPECTED OPPORTUNITY

I had not planned to run for Congress at all, certainly not against Barbara Lee, arguably one of the most progressive longterm members of Congress. However, when we realized she would be unopposed on the primary ballot, we saw an opportunity we needed to seize...

Venezuela is facing significant difficulties, and one of the worst is the widespread misinformation spread by governments and media. Here is a list of 13 basics to help shed light on this complicated situation. There are three U.S. options that can help: (1) no war, (2) end government sanctions...

I just returned from 11 days in Venezuela, my sixth trip there since 2005.

Hope. 

That’s it, in one word. And there’s more!

I am writing this because many people have been asking – and have been worried – about my planned trip to Venezuela. The political delegation – 20 people from 7 countries – will be in Venezuela from March 28 through...

Why was there a New Deal in the Great Depression of the 1930s and none in the Great Recession that started in 2008, the year Obama was elected president?

Here’s a huge opportunity Bernie’s campaign can either take or lose. Bernie Sanders states that he wants to create a political revolution in order to fight the Billionaire Class and decrease inequality. Hugo Chávez did that in Venezuela. (Do a little research and you will be able to verify that...

There actually are people who want to have all the power and wealth in their own hands, and so it is in their interest to make the rest of us believe we have no power, no choice. Margaret Thatcher, British Prime Minister in the 1980s, had the perfect phrase for it, “TINA — There Is No...
