There have been thousands of articles pumped out over the course of the Democratic primary telling us of the 'dangers' of Bernie Sanders. These articles tend to skim over some key points that I find vital to the decision making of Americans voting in these primaries. Let's break some myths.

Sanders Might Not Win the Battle, But He's Won the War

Like Obama before him Sanders has fundamentally changed the way campaigning is done and enfranchised a whole community of people who will never again be satisfied with only having a voice every time a politician needs their vote at election. He has successfully raised awareness of the crooked nature of the political system and awakened Americans to the possibility of much bigger change than that being offered by Clinton.

Super Tuesday Belonged to Trump, But the White House May Be Beyond Him

A Trump nomination is very different from a Trump presidency. Despite the fact he has confounded expectations thus far, we believe he will be defeated comfortably by Ms Clinton. Three factors will be crucial...

Bernie Sanders Supporters Have a Victory, But They Should Lose the War

These are wacko. Crazy ideas. Things that might sound pretty reasonable here in the UK. Ideas like free university tuition, universal healthcare and raising taxes on Wall Street. And it's because people in Great Britain might think they are reasonable that shows he has clearly gone too far.

No one ever thought Sanders would get this far, and there are 49 more chances for Bernie to eek out a victory in what should be an extremely close Primary. How the Establishment would sweat at the thought of a Bernie-Jeremy partnership.

Donald Trump: The Drunk Uncle Who Really Needs to Go to Bed

Ioan Marc Jones | Posted 09.12.2015 | UK Politics
Ioan Marc Jones

Trump's rhetoric is increasingly dangerous and divisive. Trump might claim he is simply 'telling it how it is.' That's not true. He is telling it how he sees it, and how he sees it, is not how it is. Trump is harming decent people through some warped sense of reality. And his platform keeps growing. We can't continue to laugh awkwardly. It is time to take the drunk, offensive Uncle to bed.

It's not often that one of the world's biggest polluters fills me with hope that we can tackle climate change. But yesterday President Obama showed leaders around the globe what climate action looks like, and his timing couldn't be better.

Warren, Not Clinton, Could Be the Most Potent Crossover Candidate

David Skelton | Posted 13.06.2015 | UK Politics
David Skelton

Conservatives should be hoping that there's a candidate in the race who's campaigning for stronger families and small businesses, a stronger middle class and reduced concentration of power. A Warren candidacy would be so much more interesting than the dynastic machine politics of Bush Mk III v Clinton Mk II.

The World Consists Chiefly Of The Vulgar

Paul is a divisive politician, beloved by younger Republicans, untrusted by religious and social conservatives and feared by the party establishment. Yet it is his non-interventionist worldview that represents the biggest threat, particularly to the neocons for whom perpetual war offers the healthiest returns.

f polls turn out to be right, the last two years of Obama's presidency are set to make the last four look like an age of mutual civility and respect. The GOP will try to repeal many laws that the Obama administration has enacted in the last six years.

Obama Is Just Too Nice to Be a Good President

Lizzie Roberts | Posted 22.10.2014 | UK Universities & Education
Lizzie Roberts

Is it the loss of a Democrat majority in the House? The Republicans stubbornness and inability to compromise? The continuous barriers against Obama's attempts to pass certain Acts? Or is it because the House is filing a law suit against him? (Yes really). Clearly all of these things coupled together worsen the situation, but Obama's main problem is that he's just too nice to be President.

Ferguson - A Country Divided Against Itself Cannot Stand

White and Black Americans have fought in one way or another, side by side in the Union Army, in World War I and II, in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan, only to return to their own separate neighborhoods, separate houses of worship and their own separate lives. Black and White Americans, for the most part, simply do not live in the same society and do not see the world around them in the same way.

Does Obama Have a Second Act?

Clearly 2013 was not the year Barack Obama had hoped for as the start of his second term. As with all second terms, President Obama's time to secure his legacy is limited before he becomes a "lame duck" and the nation begins to focus on 2016... He literally must decide what he wants to be remembered for when his time in office is at an end.

A Chance for Reflection

As the United States recovers from the Government shut down and the fact that the Government nearly defaulted on all its loans, the Republican Party needs to take this opportunity to do some serious soul searching, figure out what its priorities are, and think how it can avoid being wiped out during next year's Midterm Elections.

US Shutdown Has a Hefty International Price Tag

Factionalism is once again rife in the US. The Republican-led shutdown of the federal government last week is but the latest in a series of politically orchestrated crises designed to erode Barack Obama's domestic legitimacy. Whatever success Republicans achieve domestically, holding the federal government hostage to an extremist minority at home is not cost-free internationally...
