Politics that doesn’t go along with the status quo, the two-party system or in this city -- let’s be real -- a one-party system. Continue reading

We remember that both parties accepted massive campaign contributions from the fossil fuel industry and richly repaid the favors with trillions of dollars of direct subsidies and deregulation threatening our very future existence as a species.
