    Woulda coulda shoulda, Tarheel Dem. Actually, our target for the above was October 15, with the candidate profiles preceding that on an about two-per-week basis. We put up the first profile (Kendrick) the day after Labor Day, the traditional start of the campaign season. We figured posting our rankings October 15 would allow the campaigns [...]

    Greybeard, Sen. Warren was one of the 10 candidates MyFDLers voted to approach about Primarying Obama in 2012 – though at the time she was still setting up the CPFB. Indeed, she was readers’ TOP CHOICE. We sent her our full proposal and strategy at CFPB, priority mail. She never replied – and when Obama didn’t have [...]

    Thanks psa. We actually just got a note from Ken Kendrick in TX that if current polling numbers hold, the race for AgCommissioner will be a runoff thanks to his participation, and will expose the DINO in the race for the fraud he is. Ken’s closing line of the email lamented, like you, the loss [...]

    Half of all voters refuse to identify with either corporate party. Democrats are no longer Progressives; they are center-right politicians compromising on key Progressive issues – issues which a high percentage of those unaligned voters support, and have in polling going back more than two decades. The Democrats’ purloining of “progressive” after Reagan succeeded in [...]

    Nice idea, but increasingly not true. Running within the rigged system only plays into the rigged system. That being said, NPA’s founding was about finding a primary challenger to Obama in 2012 – and of the 10 people MyFDL readers voted to approach, not one would do it. The death grip of the major parties [...]

    great topic. The bottom line is that no helmet will prevent a concussion, because a concussion is the result of physics. The brain hits the side of the skull’s interior opposite that of where the head was struck (and often the same side as the contact as well if the blow was hard enough). The [...]
