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.
Lincoln, NE: Just 3 days after the primary victories of Ben Sasse (R) and Dave Domina (D), a new face is entering the fray in the race for US Senate in Nebraska.
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?
[Credico] polled about 1% of the vote, but I think he’d be a hell of a mayor. […] He claims to be ignored because he wants to end ‘sweetheart’ giveaways to real estate moguls and he has proposed a half-percent Wall Street Sales Tax on stock transactions, claiming such a tax “a mere flea bite” that would raise $60 billion a year, doubling city revenues.
