I received many different reactions from people when they first heard I had won the June primary write-in campaign and would be facing Barbara Lee in November.

As you can imagine, some people were shocked that anyone would challenge the most progressive congressperson in Washington. Others,...

System Change Not Climate Change

On a personal level, it seems I have always been reluctant to characterize myself as anything ending in “ist”. In my twenties, I’m sure everyone could tell I was a feminist; I always believed that girls and women were not valued equally, and we should be. But...

Serve the People Not Corporations

How do you get the government to serve people and not corporations? One way is to change the laws. Grassroots organizations “left and right” have been working for years to get money out of politics by changing laws. Another way is for voters and candidates...

A platform of integrated policies

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?

In the 1930s there were huge organizations that were on the side of regular people. They applied...

Tax the Rich and End the Wars

There are solutions to the problems we face, and they often cost money. Right up front, however, we need to say real solutions donotalways cost more. Look at how utterly ineffective the war on drugs has been, with expensive militarization and excessive...

My name is Laura Wells and I’m running for Congress in California’s District 13 as a Green Party candidate. I am running because we need to raise our expectations and use our power to challenge a system that refuses to provide the very basics for us, in this, the richest country on earth....

Our democracy is based on GOTV, Getting Out The Vote, and we did it! Most of the grand total of 5,239 write-in votes went to cartoon characters, dogs, or others who did not do the paperwork. Of those who did become “qualified” write-in candidates, I received 832 votes, followed by a Republican...

When it comes to Congress, polls show an odd fact: Congress as a whole has a very low approval rating, and yet people in congressional districts across the country approve of their own representative. This creates a huge incumbent advantage. In Congressperson Barbara Lee’s district, no one else...

The billionaire class won again. Shocking, depressing. So I look for some news to give me courage to continue, and here’s what I found:

Richmond Progressive Alliance achieved its first ever majority on the Richmond City Council, a government formerly run by the largest corporation in...

Here are eight reasons to register yourself and others Green:  

(1)  Four years! Not until the 2020 presidential primary will your voter registration affect what ballot you get for public offices and initiatives. The freedom to register Green is one good thing in California’s generally...

Richmond Progressive Alliance (RPA) is at the forefront of showing that people power can beat money power. People can make their lives and their communities better, healthier, and happier.

RPA began in late 2003 when a group of community activists in Richmond, California became tired of...

I do NOT endorse Donald Trump. I am Green. I hope and expect Jill Stein to be the Green Party’s nominee for president, and I heard a hashtag idea I like, #BernieOrGreenIn2016.

I despise Trump’s (and anyone’s) blaming of immigrants for everything from terrorism to bad schools to lack of...

This is the written and expanded version of remarks I delivered at two well-attended and engaging events. The debate/panel “Debating the 2016 Presidential Elections and the Key Issues of Our Time” took place on February 5th and 6th in Oakland and San Francisco. Speakers included:

ONE: A movement is building. People are questioning the fairness of capitalism and looking at socialism with fresh eyes. Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders has been a major spokesperson for bringing the term “socialism” back into our national dialogue. I like that about Bernie.

For online OR mail-in, you need your paper ballot with your code. See way below for what to do NOW if you don’t have it. Here’s the slate I endorse: http://www.unitedforcommunityradio.org/?page_id=3182

At this late date, online voting is recommended, but if your mail-in ballot is...

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...

I am adding a P.S. to my prior blog because a number of people have questioned whether Bernie Sanders really meant Hugo Chávez when he said “dead communist dictator.” An excerpt and a link, HERE.

In a statement to the Huffington Post, Sanders spokesman Michael Briggs said that...

I just got an email from independent journalist and activist Jonathan Nack, and I was shocked when I read the first paragraph: Bernie Sanders just referred to Hugo Chávez as a “dead communist dictator.”  Jonathan’s entire open letter is below. All I would add, for those who would like to see...

Recently I was invited to post blogs focusing on Latin America on the Tikkun Daily Blog. My first post is HERE, a slightly revised version of my “Ten Things I Learned from Hugo Chávez.” (NOTE: If you do a quick read of the ten headings, you may be able to spot one “tone-it-down” revision in the...

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...

“The Green Party should not run for President and other state and national offices. It should run candidates for local office first, and then build up to higher level offices.” How often have I heard that? Many, many times, including recently after I posted the blog “Bernie Sanders and the...

INTRODUCTION:  The term “sheepdogging” comes up in my mind whenever people talk about the 2016 presidential election. Here are excerpts and links to two articles by Bruce A. Dixon to explain both the “sheepdog” approach, and the alternative. I hope you find this memorable and engaging too....

[UPDATED three days later in the POST SCRIPT below, after my 50th Rockford High School reunion, the reason I had to get to Michigan that very day!]

 

I had a boyfriend (first love of my life, actually) who said he had realized, “I can rationalize anything.”  I never ever knew...
