The CFAR National Electoral Strategy

This particular article and accompanying video reaches out to everyone who is running as a populist-progressive in the November 2018 election, an attempt to persuade them that the candidate contracts represent a powerful, decisive method for defeating centrist neoliberal establishment opponents and winning the election.

Mobilization Without Method Is Meaningless

If there is any doubt about my message, here it is: To mobilize people behind any cause, regardless of how worthy that cause is, regardless of how intrinsically appealing it may be to get these folks marching, singing, chanting, shouting for that cause, if there is no clear strategy which targets an equally clear and obvious outcome, with a realistic expectation that the strategy will achieve that outcome, then the mobilization is a waste of time. Some forethought, planning, disciplined and targeted activism goes much further than making a lot of noise. Continue reading

Choose A Symptom, Ignore The Disease

America is very, very sick. The disease which is destroying our nation feeds on: 1) Unchecked imperial ambitions. 2) Exceptionalist hubris and arrogance. 3) The crushing power of corporations. 4) The militarization of everything. 5) Plutocratic tyranny and greed. None of the presidential candidates will talk about the disease. Because none of them has a cure. Continue reading

Character Witness

I make no secret of this. My novel “An Unlikely Truth” has been out since mid-February of this year. Two-and-a-half years in the making, it’s not just more pulp fiction to add to the pile. I sincerely hope it makes a difference. Continue reading

VIDEO BLOG: Trust No Incumbent

The bribery and blackmail has destroyed any semblance of representative government in contemporary America. We have learned our lesson. The faith both in our democratic system and the politicians we entrusted with the future of our nation and the quality of our lives was misplaced. The system has been corrupted by money and the trustworthiness of our “representatives” in public office been sabotaged. No more apologies. No more excuses. No more bullshit. Trust no incumbent! Continue reading

The ‘P’ Word

The Day That Changed The World

The coming election will probably change nothing. The wars will go on. The plundering of our national wealth will continue. The waste of our valuable talents and energies through unemployment and underemployment will march forward. Social Security and Medicare will be chipped away until sometime in the future they are hollowed out and meaningless. The rich will get richer and most of us will be grateful for the few scraps we get. But we CAN change the world. Continue reading
