  1. I am in total agreement with this sentiment. WE must abandon the duopoly. THough I fear it is too late, I will support third party candidates or independents exclusively. The lesser od tw evils is evil, and its really difficult to discern which of the major parties is the lesser evil.

    1. Edward, good word. But try this on for size: “The Evil of Two Lessers” and that’s exactly what they are. And no, it’s never too late as Chris Hedges states: “I fight fascism not thinking I’ll win. I fight fascists because they’re fascists.” One more thing: Check out the People’s Party and join Chris Hedges, Dr. Cornell West, and many others in this movement to bring sanity to the political system.

    2. The “lesser evil” of the moment is the “more effective evil.” These are the Dems who want to appear virtuous to accomplish the same evil as the major evil, but more quietly.

    3. You are enabling the far right with third party votes.

      1. We do not have the luxury of wasting our vote. Clearly, the Dems, for all their shortcomings, are the lesser evil.

    1. The People’s Party! Also, the alternative is to take this nation into our own hands and bring justice to working people across the nation. And how” Non-violent, peaceful non-cooperation wherein millions upon millions refuse to go along with the system while screaming: “ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!”

      1. I don’t see or hear anything about the People’s Party, but I agree the people need to come together and claim ENOUGH. We will have to overcome our internal divisions before that can happen.

  2. I am afraid we are out of time. I believe our fates will be determined by those already in power, god help us all. Make no mistake, things have gone too far and our leaders drunk on their own propaganda, greed, and hubris are leading us into the third world war. A war with many less soldiers and many more nukes. They are committed now to their insane course and will continue to escalate the war in the Ukraine until it goes global. Russia cannot back down. China doesn’t want to take the US on alone and Russia is it’s potential supplier of vast amounts of natural resources, not the least of which are Oil, Gas and Coal. They see what is happening and are determined it will never happen to them. This will escalate and before any election can be held to determine the next designated President, it will be too late to matter.

    I of course hope I am wrong, and I often am. But unless there is some totally unexpected paradigm shift in the current trajectory of this Western Globalist/Russian Conflict I am afraid this ends badly.

  3. We’ve always had the option of exercise our rights as citizens. As JustAMaverick’s comment suggests, it may now be too late. But if there’s any chance to stop the military madness and the death spiral of the neocon imperial project, it will result from massively mobilizing the people. Please look at this …. http://peacedividend.us/what-is-the-peace-dividend-strategy/ …. as I see nothing else in the limp vacuum of our current “peace movement” which offers anything directly challenging the MIC and Deep State.

  4. It was already ‘too late’ in 2016 when the Green Party’s Jill Stein managed to get onto all 50 state ballots and she was brought down by the crooked system- ironically being linked with none other than Vladimir Putin. And she was banned from appearing on the national debate stage.

    Still, weak-kneed Americans, who today call themselves ‘progressives’, opted into the filthy, rotten system. Again.

    Mr. Fish nails it…

    1. The USA already had a police state when they handcuffed Dr. Jill to a radiator to keep her off the debate stage. Deep state propaganda sometimes contains truisms. They told us a soccer player and some other fit dudes rushed the hijackers and crashed Flight 93 before t could reach Joe Biden on the Capitol steps. They also said family reunions occurred over cellphones that could not have possibly connected, but that has been debunked. It wasn’t a Hallmark Channel miracle. But the principle rings true. JustAMaverick is singing, “Too late, Baby, now, it’s too late, though we really did try to make it. Something inside has died, and I get tight, and I just can’t fake it.” But even if our only epitaph is gonna be a smoking hole in the ground I think we should rush the cockpit. We’d be no deader than if we waited for the hijackers to go kamikaze. So, “Let’s Roll.” I am of a mindset that assumes all good acts always were and always will be, no matter what.

    2. Stein is one of the stupidest politicians to ever show up on the scene in the US. Dinners with and taking money from Putin is just a tip of the iceberg of Stein’s idiocy. She’s said Noam Chomsky subscribed to “the politics of fear” for telling swing state voters to vote for Clinton,called Obama a war criminal,and claimed Hillary Clinton was a terrible mother, or, in her own words, “one who doesn’t reflect the values of being a mother”. She also criticized Michelle Obama’s friendship with George W. Bush. Stein even criticized Bernie Sanders for….refusing to talk to her. And much more.

      I’m convinced the Green Parties here as well as in Canada (the affirmative action elected Israel Apartheid loving Annamie Paul as an example) have been long infiltrated by oil company operatives steering the election of the most incompetent people to lead the parties to guarantee a loss. Canada’s former Green Party leader said as much about “internal sabotage”. There are no third party alternatives in North America. You would need to create alternates to both right and left at the same time in order to halt the binary choice that we are stuck with.

      1. Eran~
        Your comments reflect your fondness for mainstream media re: Jill Stein and most especially ‘dinner with and taking money from Putin’.

        Your laundry list of Stein’s faux pas includes no evidence that she ever said or ‘did’ those things; they are merely incomplete sentences. How dare she smear those fine folks you mention!

  5. well folks, we could do what Pat Buchanan did to Ross Perot’s fledgling party; he went joined/infiltrated, in a coordinated effort, took over and destroyed it from the inside.
    the same could be done today but it takes commitment, and that is our downfall. We no longer trust the institutions
    we, the citizens, are like POWs and abused people w/ Stockholm syndrome and PTSD.
    we need believers, which is where youth would be the solution. If you can help fledgling candidates, mentor, assist… perhaps…

  6. Yes to almost everything progressives believe in, but a resounding no to everything the Republicans believe to be true. Warren and Sanders work within the party. We must too.

  7. Life is over. The old abnormal, at least. Now we’ve got the new abnormal, ushered into the world via the false flag coup of covid-1984, which as WEF master of the universe Klaus Schwab has joyfully announced for all his criminal clan represents a rare opportunity of convenient crisis to implement the Great Reset/4th Industrial Revolution, while serving notice to the rest of us untermenschen that life as we once knew it is over, that any return to that is fictional, and that from now on we’re on our way to a new world order where we will own nothing and be happy in our masters’ technofeudal dystopia (at least those mutant posthumans who survive the culling of the herd).

    The present endgame of class warfare upon the insolvency of neoliberal capitalism converts governance by debt to biodigital slavery by carrying forward the global rule put in place for half a century among transnational elites. Financial ransom of national sovereignty via such ruling institutions as the World Bank, IMF, WTO, and BIS is now being replaced by more direct dictatorial control over state governments via biosecurity regimes represented by such institutions as the WHO and IPCC, along with international treaties which have as much pretense of popular consent as previous free trade agreements.

    In short, partisan political theater is more meaningless than ever, as its spectacle of scandal and sensationalism grows more absurd in hollow compensation. Wake up and rise up, before – in ways these puppets are not telling us – it is indeed over for us all. It’s do or die when it comes to the long overdue need of we the people to (re)build our own body politic, with eyes on a radical reset of our own to live free or die.

  8. The DNC resembles nothing so much as “The Spanish Inquisition” in the Monty Python sketch of the same name. “Among our weapons are surprise and fear, fear and surprise, and ruthless efficiency, and fanatical devotion to our largest contributors. ” They always forget about “Trouble at the mill- One on’t cross beams gone owt askew on treddle.” (translation: The system is the disease.) If we had elections anymore, Joe Biden and his Dianne Franken-Feinsteins would have to vaccinate 6 billion and forgive all the car notes and mortgages, as well as all the student loans, plus settle with the Russian Federation. But even if they won it couldn’t last. Because climate change has overtaken humanity, and the USA is 30 trillion in the red and counting, and the petrodollar is dead. Even the fops can sense it. Look how the stock indexes dropped today in the worst market year since 1939. (Judy Woodruff) The goldbugs (like Matthew Pieppenburg) are advising we will either have hyperinflation and Nazism, or the Greatest Depression and Socialism. Hey- A little Socialism on my deathbed wouldn’t be so bad.

  9. the DNC & RNC do not decide our fate … it is the Electronic Voting Machines that took over our elections in 2000 – Florida’s EVM stealing the POTUS from Al Gore – had the Supreme Court to back it up – was the END of our Democracy …
    Paper Ballots – hand counted – the best democracies (Scandinavian) in the world do NOT use EVM … the 1% put EVM throughout every continent which explains the rise of fascism …
    If you do not believe me, just invite Mark Crispin Miller to explain the murder of Michael Connell (hired by Karl Rove to steal 2000 & 2004 for George W Bush) and Stephen Spoonamore (another IT Guru who has been screaming from the roof tops to rid this country of EVM) …

    EVM – now called “Dominion Voting Systems” (Dominionist’s – Christian Facsists – believe the USA should be a “Theocracy” — they seek to enforce a One World Religion; and they’ve dubbed it “ChrIslam” — we’re in for he makings of a real life Handmaid’s Tale … prepare for this if in 2024 we are still using EVM – that decide our electiuons for us — NOT our vote (that go uncounted).

    1. Aren’t “likes” on the Internet the ultimate way of voting?

      1. why would you say that “likes on the internet the ultimate way of voting. USA functioned fairly well for hundreds of years via paper ballot votes being counted.
        All elections have had trickery … but with electonic voting EVM’s, the 1% who own the ‘proprietary makings of these ‘black boxes’ decide who wins elections in the end.
        It just takes the flick of one switch to steal & flip millions of votes … When is America going to wake up. Even India & Veneuela figured it out and got rid of their EVM. In every country using these, fascism is on the rise.

  10. Voters are like sports fans. They give their life energy freely and without recompense to watch other people make millions. Go figure.

  11. Democracy works IFour votes are counted. Bernie won both DNC Primaries 2016 & 2020, but the EVM hid the evidence (election fraud).

    Still … no matter the mountains of evidence of election fraud, very few will get beyond their own cognitive dissidence to address it head on & prevent EVM from stealing the next election.

    By allowing the use of EVM, we are knowingly digging our own grave for democracy … Ireland dumped their EVM for scrap metal over a decade ago and now rank way ahead of the USA on the Democracy Index (USA ranks 25th in the world – listed as a “Flawed Democracy” due to the lack of integrity in our elections.

    There is not enough brave people to take on the ghost in the E.V. Machines (the 1%). We’ve become the walking dead with Stockholm Syndrome; after decades of abuse it seems we’re giving up.

  12. Your both sidesism helped overturn Roe v Wade. Congratulations on your amazing victory, and keep fighting the power! You’re doing an excellent job of advancing your cause.
