Michigan Election Fraud

There were disturbing developments during the March 10th Michigan primaries. How did Bernie Sanders lose nearly 300,000 votes over the course of two minutes? A local volunteer tells the story.

How Compromise Killed the New Deal Coalition

FDR made a fatal error when he backed off of anti-lynching legislation to appease Southern Democrats. Today's progressives can make a new, stronger coalition that isn't tainted by racism.

What Freedom?

Another Fourth of July has come and gone, and with it another bombastic celebration of freedom. Freedom is one of our most celebrated ideals, and for good reason.
