It appears that we are lacking in both. If we are to survive as a nation, one nation under God, then we must trust that our forefathers had it right. That equality, opportunity and inclusion are still what America stands for.

As Obama gave his farewell speech, many across the political spectrum watched in nostalgia as the first black President of the United States bowed out, giving way to the...entity that is Donald Trump. Of course, 2008 to 2016 signified a period of time where the mistakes of the past were learned from: the US didn't intervene to devastating effect in foreign nations, Guantanamo Bay was closed, and the working class was allowed to flourish.

The Lesson That All Progressives Should Learn From Trump

I had to take a deep breath last night when a work colleague of mine - a young, gay man - called me over on my break because he wanted to talk about Donald Trump. "Isn't it exciting?" he said, "Trump is something completely different, I'd probably have voted for him. He isn't a politician, he's something new."

Hillary Clinton Was The Wrong Candidate Against Donald Trump

Instead of choosing their own insurgent who defined himself as a democratic socialist, Bernie Sanders, they chose the establishment- personified figure, Hillary Clinton. How dumb was that?

Clinton had lost touch with the traditionally Democratic white male worker. Her liberal views on immigration and trade might draw enthusiastic liberals in the big cities, but many workers in the rust belt perceived her to be ignoring their economic interest.

Lefties That Want A Trump Presidency To Bring The System Into Crisis Are Dangerously Naive

I never thought I would hope to see a Hilary Clinton presidency. Yet as election day looms, I find myself hoping the American electorate rejects the divisive and racist rhetoric of the Trump candidacy, and instead chooses the establishment. An establishment that my instincts and political education have taught me to reject and resist.

Presidential Debates Ignore The American People

Kumail Jaffer

The three debates reflected a microcosm of American media - frame a narrow spectrum to them all their lives, and people will rarely think outside of it. Ask yourself this, especially if you will vote on November 8th - does America need a new brand of alt right nationalism? A rise in anger towards the immigrants who only work to benefit the countries that house them? Or does it need more of the same? More flawed foreign policy, more bowing to the corporate and banking worlds?

The Real Silent Majority

David Zeff

Whether or not Labour MPs liked or voted for Corbyn initially, if all they heard from a majority of their constituents was support for a Corbyn-led Labour Party, and believed their seat would be safe, most would have little reason to kick him out. Stupid at times they may be, but Labour MPs from all wings of the party have no interest whatsoever in losing a general election.

To add to the full-blown working class revolt against global capitalism -- already stoked by the rapid rise of inequality, free trade deals, stagnant wages, trickle-down economics, and tax regulations skewed for giant corporations and the elites -- we now have Britain's rejection of the EU's single market, an institution that has been in place for decades.
