I Am Still a Liberal Progressive

  You’re not crazy. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are nearly the same in ideology. Lots of people will try to convince you that this isn’t true, but it is. They both fall in the blue square (above), which is where right-wing authoritarians are. This is also the same square that Adolph Hitler fell in. […]

The Democratic Nominee

  I wanted the US to nominate Bernie Sanders as the Democratic candidate for President. I went through all the trouble of getting an overseas ballot so that I could vote for him. And you know what? I really thought he would win. So many of us believed in him. However, the establishment is strong. […]

Donald Trump is an Idiot

  I am really very surprised that I have to say this. I guess I thought everyone knew. Before he ran for President, no one took him seriously because he was just this reality TV star who was creepy and acted like an ass. He was born into money so he got away with a […]

My Muslim Friend

  I went to school with a girl who has duel citizenship in the US and Pakistan. She went back after college to run a school for the poor in Rawalpindi. I like her a lot, and I don’t envy her choices this election. Of course she is hoping that Bernie Sanders will get the […]

The Constitution

There was a protest in Los Angeles against Donald Trump today. Lots of conservatives lost their shit over it. Here is what I want to know: Conservatives like to pretend that they LOVE the Constitution of the United States of America. They like to glorify it as the almighty document that should rule everything. They […]

Bernie or Bust

I didn’t like Hillary Clinton in 2008, and I voted for Obama instead. He betrayed me by bombing seven countries in six years and being a really lousy liberal. Now Hillary Clinton is back. I still don’t like her. But I would have voted for her in November anyway, because Donald Trump is an idiot. […]

Donald Drumpf

    Now that Donald Trump is the Republican nominee, I guess we have sunk about as low as we can as a country. I want you to know that this is really embarrassing to those of us who are overseas. I am sick of people asking me why my country has gone insane. So […]

Don’t Be Sad; Organize!

So Bernie Sanders is preparing for a contested convention and Hillary Clinton is urging him to drop out. A lot of my friends are Sanders supporters and they are all disappointed that he hasn’t “won” a lot of states (It was often close enough that they got the same number of delegates.) First, I want […]

Political Compass

There is a really neat website that can help you figure out your political beliefs and where you stand compared to others. It’s called Political Compass, and you should definitely give it a try.   Basically, it defines what is considered “left” and what is considered “right” so that you can get a better idea […]
