What do MAGA voters and the Democratic Base have in common?  Some people could guess, the commonality is being hoodwinked by separate branches of the Republican/Democratic Duopoly.

What do MAGA voters and the Democratic Base have in common?  Some people could guess, the commonality is being hoodwinked by separate branches of the Republican/Democratic Duopoly.

Following are examples of the policy of ignoring the wishes and needs of We The People by each of the Democratic Branch and Republican Branch of the duopoly—

Example 1 for Republicans—–   –Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) has had a busy year. He has enacted legislation prohibiting teachers from acknowledging the existence of LGBTQ people. He has banned private businesses from conducting trainings about racial bias. And he has flown dozens of migrants from San Antonio, Texas to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, under false pretenses. 

But while DeSantis was fighting the culture wars and positioning himself for a future presidential run, he has failed to meaningfully address one of the state’s biggest problems: its dysfunctional and collapsing property insurance market. –end of popularinfo–

Example 2 for Democrats—-    –SEPTEMBER 30, 2022

Symone Sanders, Martin Luther King III and Others Discuss the Supreme Court

Symone Sanders, host of “Symone” on MSNBC and former spokesperson for Vice President Kamala Harris, led a discussion on voting rights, with civil rights activists, legal experts, and journalists, hosted by the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation

Example 2 was quite good on the merit of the discussion, and suggested an awakening, finally.  The discussion ended with (paraphrase) the tired sound bite on the topic of lack of Choice for women that “impacts most, black women”.  An explanation is still awaited, as to the reason that this most crucial human natural rights topic was absent from the 2020 Presidential campaign, at the same time women were the negative focus for Democratic-strategist talking points; and to use the phrase coined by said Democratic strategists to encourage voter turn out by the Democratic Base, “especially white women”.  Anyway, any progress toward reality is appreciated.

MAGA people may need to deal with the environmental disaster in Florida before dealing with reality on the topic of politics.  Perhaps this is forthcoming.

The point this voter for first Bernie Sanders, and then Howie Hawkins, twice for President, is the Democratic/Republican Duopoly feels a tad dictatorial.  But that’s just one person’s opinion.

About those who didn’t sell out—-

From Remaloeb with appreciation  —   A picture during Kevin Locke’s final day of performances, Friday, September 30, 2022. He was asking where all the children were, there was mostly retired folks in the crowd at Crazy Horse Memorial. Just then a bus load of students from Oglala Lakota Oyate pulled into the parking lot. So I invited them in to dance with Deksi Kevin. His eyes lit up and he went on teaching them and got them dancing with him, while showing them how to use a hoop. He was singing old songs, that he said he rarely shares in presentations, almost like he knew it would be his final time sharing them.

Did you see the recent good news out of California? Following a momentous vote from California legislators, Governor Newsom signed SB 1137 into law, a bill that will put an end to toxic neighborhood drilling in California. 

On Friday, October 7 at 11am PT / 2pm ET, I’m thrilled to welcome California State Senator, Lena Gonzalez, and community organizer, Maricruz Ramirez, to celebrate the historic victory for public health. 

Together, we will spotlight the frontline communities and lawmakers who stood up for a livable California, shed light on what this victory means for people and our planet, share the lessons learned along the way that can help us strengthen the climate movement going  forward, and gear up for what comes next.

****As one who would be perfectly contented to retain the Senate if they adhered to Oaths of Office more than to Citizens United campaign donations, one is interested in a topic raised as to the reason we maintain the US Senate—-

 This is a reminder of how much we don’t know.  This brings one around to Howie Hawkins, who continues to impress with original thought.  We also could acknowledge Hawkins often speaks to censored information.
One such topic about which one would never have even considered, is whether the USA needs The Senate.  Apparently The Senate is little other than expensive window dressing, promoting hierarchical interests, and too often placed in positions of power by big-money via Citizens United.  But the public gets to fund this curiosity of pompous supremacy.  Who knew?
The Democratic Branch of the Republican/Democratic Duopoly are especially functional in voter suppression—–          —#GreenSocialist Notes #76
Howie Hawkins brings up the concept of whether the USA needs the Senate.  Apparently according to some people, the Senate isn’t necessary.  This brings up the blockage from the Senate of many bills that would benefit We The People.  Combined with Citizens United that promotes big-money interest choice of Senators, in which laws are passed that benefit big-money interest rather than We The People, and that We The People support economically, the members of the Senate, this seems a good topic for discussion.
The US Constitution doesn’t seem to sanction elections run by political Parties, and to permit control of political debates by political Parties seems equally corrupt.       —

Centralization is the lifeblood of the R&D duopoly.  It’s the way to enforce capitalism onto workers in 2022.———————–We can do better———-

That “we are a 2-Party system” is a fabrication of the Republican/Democratic duopoly and spread by MSM.  In FACT the majority of voters aren’t either registered Democratic or Republican.  The censorship about this info must be envied by bureaucrats of the Former USSR and their simplistic style of 1-Party elections.  

Regardless of which character sits in the Oval Office, We The People have work to do to maintain principles of our democratic (small d) Constitutional republic.  Several items to challenge—*We need the integrity of ranked-choice voting so voters won’t feel compelled to “hold your nose and vote”*Censored debates must be stopped.  The Democratic/Republican duopoly pretends to legitimate debates in what is nothing other than another campaign show.  Independent debates run by uninterested sponsors such as The League of Women Voters, must be restored.  (Access to understand the extent of duopoly control).  The so-called Debate Commission is a corporation to promote the Democratic corporation and Republican corporation, not to inform We The People*Challenge and stop gerrymandering that is a trick especially of the Republican branch of the duopoly.*Stop voter suppression by political Parties, and especially confront and stop Party suppression, which is the over-arching approach to voter suppression.  Party suppression seems to have been the responsibility of the Democratic corporation*Promote by law ranked-choice voting, so we won’t be told again, by D&R duopoly, to “hold your nose and vote”
If these issues are handled, our next elections can be honorable.

WITHDRAWS SUPPORT FROM FINAL PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE–end of lwv info–Murray Bookchin, who founded social ecology, a theory that strongly influenced early Green Socialist thought, strongly advocated the discussion and study group as the first step of any revolutionary movement. A group of individuals meets to expand their knowledge of radical thought and form a radical intellectual community; through the give and take of discussion, can eventually form ideas for next steps in organizing and political activity. According to Bookchin, study groups help create solidarity and a shared language — with a shared coherent vision — for building a mass, organizing, political movement!
