The two-party system has become an intolerable straitjacket on the hopes and dreams of the American people. More than ever, we need a viable alternative to a future of budget cuts, unemployment, despair and war.
A One-Two Punch for Economic Recovery:
Wall Street speculators – not the American people – are responsible for the ongoing economic depression. Make them pay! We demand a 1% sales tax on stocks, bonds and derivatives to stop all state and federal budget cuts.
Make the private Fed accountable to the needs of the American people. Force it to finance an American economic revolution with trillions in cheap, long-term credit for infrastructure, industry and public needs.

As President Obama prepares a statement on foreign policy for this Wednesday, September 10, 2014, we in Nebraska are looking forward to another Senate debate this weekend.

Randy Credico, a longtime comedian-turned-longshot mayoral candidate […] got just about 2 percent of the vote, or 13,666 votes throughout the city. So why is a tiny district of the Bronx showing a drastically different story? And could it matter?
