Democracy Now! | democracynow.org | 2018-11-15

pip.hinman | greenleft.org.au | 2018-11-15
"I will only accept an average worker's wage." This is the promise of all Victorian Socialists' candidates contesting the November 24 state election. | This has long been the pledge of genuine socialist candidates, but this time it means even more because of the prospect that candidates Steve Jolly and Tim Gooden could each win a seat. | No other party — not even the Greens — makes this promise. Yet, it is a profound principle for socialists. | Why? In short, because it is a critical part of building a genuine peoples' power movement for change. | Most people have some level of disdain, if not outrigh…

John McCullough | fair.org | 2018-11-13
"Working-class voters tried to send a message in 2016, and they are still trying to send it," writes columnist David Brooks (New York Times, 11/8/18). By "working class," he means "white working class," since people making less than $100,000 voted decisively for Democrats in 2018. | Since the 2016 elections, corporate media narratives about US politics have fixated on the "white working class" as a pivotal demographic, presented as a hardscrabble assortment of disaffected outsiders. Piece after piece has been published in establishment o…

stuart_m | greenleft.org.au | 2018-11-09
Coulda been, shoulda been. | The November 6 midterm elections should have been a ringing repudiation of Donald Trump and the Republican Party. And if not for the dismal state of US "democracy" and the two-party system, it would have been. | In Election 2018, a lot more people overall voted for the Democrats — the only real choice against the Republicans in the "world's greatest democracy," which itself is a sign of the dysfunction — than Republicans. | Democrats are predicted to end up winning the nationwide popular vote by a yawn…
