S0cialist Equality Party candidate Jerry White will be taking question on Reddit. I urge people who vote to vote for White and you should ask questions in this forum whether you plan to vote for him or not.
If the discussion on my wall is any indication, the author is right. American liberals have no deal breaker. They will vote for the Democratic Party, acting as active accomplices in the nation’s rightward drift and willing apologists for the worst excesses of the American state, provided that the Republicans are able to find someone subjectively “worse.” Considering the mountains of evidence that Obama is worse than Bush using quantifiable, objective metrics, I’m still confused as to what arguments are being made that Republicans are “worse” other than a liberal distaste for the cultural signals sent.
TL;DR: American liberals have no political principles whatsoever. Gross.
This is a new-to-me article about Naomi Klein-reading, organic-garden planting, social-justice-Tumblr-maintaining “anarcho-liberals.” I’m not sure which bothers me more, this crowd or Democratic Party voters with political Stockholm Syndrome.
Speaking of stuff liberals support, here’s a very powerful article about Obama’s drone war in Pakistan.

In response to the inability of certain Muslims to take insults against their imaginary friend in stride, the UN is now hearing proposals that restrict anti-religious speech.
I’m not sure that people appreciate just how precarious the balance of power in Central and Southwest Asia is. This could seriously explode into something really nasty at any second. The major powers — in particular the United States — seem content to kick this hornet’s nest until it explodes.
Only for the poorest Americans, who are overwhelming black and Southern. Remember this next time your liberal friend makes a crack about throwing Mississippi out of the Union.
“No Chance 2012″ continues its full-throttle race to fiery oblivion.
Elizabeth Warren represents everything troubling about the Massachusetts Democratic Party and identity politics in general. The lying about her racial background is just gross on a base level, to say nothing of her posing as a defender of the so-called “middle class” while working to help Travelers Insurance Company get out of paying out to asbestos victims. But here’s the latest from Professor Lizzy: She’s not even licensed to practice law in Massachusetts.
