All Americans Need to Support the Recall of Brian Kemp

All Americans Need to Support the Recall of Brian Kemp

Georgia’s Secretary of State has implemented America’s least-secure elections, and voter data has been compromised multiple times during his tenure. This has been a tough year for those of us who believe in the sanctity of American institutions. We’re tired of corruption and are growing impatient at the intentional degradation of norms from the Trump administration and Congressional GOP. Many

Making Elections Great Again: A Prescription To Increase Electoral Fairness in the Age of Citizens United

Making Elections Great Again: A Prescription To Increase Electoral Fairness in the Age of Citizens United

In 1992, I was a junior in high school in Manchester, the largest city in New Hampshire. At the time, Manchester had a population of about 100,000, and during that cold winter it seemed at least half of those people were presidential candidates. Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, Bob Kerrey, and Jerry Brown all made appearances at my high school.

When They Go Low, We Go Local

When They Go Low, We Go Local

They say all politics is local. It’s where the magic happens -- where change happens one vote, one bill, one life at a time. It’s a quaint idea, imagining how truly powerful all of the Leslie Knopes of our country are, toiling day and night on legislation, holding town halls for their constituents, and fighting for what’s right. But is

Democrats Messaging Misses Masses

Democrats Messaging Misses Masses

The problem with the Democratic party is poor messaging. In 2016 people that voted for Trump, really had more in common with the Democratic Platform, but nobody explained that to them. A good way to share the Democratic message is through listening tours scheduled in high republican/Trump counties. Gerrymandering has painted too many districts deep red, but the individuals living

TrumpRussia: Where Are We Now?

TrumpRussia: Where Are We Now?

"TrumpRussia" encompasses alleged ties between Russia and Donald Trump and his surrogates, along with Russia's interference in our 2016 election. By now, most Americans are familiar with TrumpRussia, whether or not they think that it's "Fake News." Spoiler alert: it's NOT Fake News.

A Libertarian’s Perspective on Trump

A Libertarian’s Perspective on Trump

I am a libertarian. Libertarians believe in freedom; in voluntary association; that, because government is society's only mandatory institution (has power over all within its jurisdiction; may initiate force to impose its will), its only permissible function is to protect negative rights (freedoms; liberty); and that positive rights (the so-called right to be given other people's product) do not exist.

Impeaching Trump is All about Bob

Impeaching Trump is All about Bob

Day after day, we are bombarded by reports of more and more ties between Russia and Donald Trump and his cabal. It seems that EVERYONE on Team Trump "coincidentally" has ties to Russia, whether it's Trump "consigliere" Michael Cohen's negotiations for Trump Tower Moscow during the campaign, Paul Manafort's spider web of connections with Kremlin-linked oligarchs and mobsters, Donald Trump,

This weekend we suffered a tragedy in Charlottesville with KKK and American White Supremacists walking under a Nazi flag. The tragedy though was repeated when InfoWars went on the race baiting offensive claiming Jewish actors were part of the protest to make it look like Nazis were in Charlottesville. (InfoWars Video) The presence of David Duke confirms what we already

Finding Hope in the Heartland

On November 8, 2016, I, along with 63 million other Americans, entered the voting booth and cast my vote for Donald J. Trump. I want you to know that my decision to vote for Trump was the culmination of months of debating whether I could even bring myself to vote for either candidate. I, like a lot of Americans, found

Trump’s Thin Red Line

Trump’s Thin Red Line

It's the interview that launched a thousand misguided thinkpieces. On July 19th, three New York Times reporters presented a tautology to the President of the United States: if former FBI Director and current Special Counsel Bob Mueller does the one thing his appointment by the Department of Justice prevents him from doing-investigate matters that have nothing whatsoever to do with

We Need More than One Big Party to Save America

We Need More than One Big Party to Save America

The Trump administration is actively deconstructing America’s democratic values and processes, but there is an even more dangerous underlying consequence of Trump’s rise to power. Too many people — especially those on the left — believe the fallacy that either Trump’s removal or his failure will automatically restore the nation’s balance. Uniting against Trump does instill a sense of purpose

One silver lining to Trump's win: Democrats could win key governors' races for 2020s redistricting ​ Donald Trump’s shocking victory over Hillary Clinton also saw Republicans win more power at the state level than in any election since 1928.

This article was originally published on GMF by Laura Rosenberger and J.M. Berger Since Russia’s interference in the 2016 U.S. election, many have warned that Putin will be back in 2018 and 2020.  But the reality is that Russian influence operations never left. As former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper recently stated, the Kremlin is already beginning to “prep the
