If you who care about climate change and are thinking of casting a protest vote for Gary Johnson, fugetaboutit. And don't vote for Stein or abstain. The planet might not survive President Trump.
Clinton’s problem—both in the Democratic primaries and in the general election—is that she is inescapably part of a political establishment that has failed Americans badly.
Donald Trump presents himself as a champion of blue-collar workers, and in particular talks about steelworkers a lot. He says, "Look at steel, it’s being wiped out." But don’t listen to the words; look at his acts.
Tuesday's vice-presidential debate offered moments of real contrast between the America that works for all promised by Democrat Hillary Clinton and the alt-right and tea-party policies of a Donald Trump administration.
Clinton's economic speech in Toledo, Ohio Monday wasn't perfect, and some will undoubtedly question her sincerity. But it showed just how far the candidate, and her party, have come in a very short time.

Little Zianna Oliphant, speaking through her tears at a city council meeting in Charlotte, said more about what’s really happening with policing in black communities than Donald Trump did in 90 minutes at Monday nights debate.
As usual, Donald Trump stretched, distorted and outright denied the truth in the debate Monday night. Some of his biggest whoppers were about taxes. Here are the five most wrong-headed things Trump said about taxes.
The debate was largely a clash of personalities, rather than a clash of visions for the nation’s future. In her zeal to defeat her opponent, which she clearly did, Hillary Clinton didn’t do enough to inspire and motivate her base.
Millions of Americans deserve answers – including the unjustly incarcerated, African Americans, Native Americans, the unemployed, young people burdened with student debt, and everyone concerned about the planet.
This week, a Donald Trump supporter managed to somehow surpass even Donald Trump himself in sheer, unadulterated ignorance of our nation’s history regarding race.
The provincial anger, stoked for so long by the Republican Party, has finally boiled over. Donald Trump is telling those folks what they’ve been wanting to hear, exactly the way they’ve been wanting to hear it for a very long time.
Leave it to Donald Trump to stand in black church, before a somehow still overwhelmingly white audience, and promise to implement New York City’s racist, unconstitutional stop-and-frisk policing nationwide.
In which I explain to a Donald Trump supporter over a cup of coffee that his candidate is not a "successful businessman," but a con man.
For all his bloviating about “law and order,” Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has yet to express any serious outrage over police killings of unarmed African Americans.
One candidate offers actual policies and proposals. The other offers entertainment. Which one does the "news" media flock to? Which candidate is receiving the news coverage — the policy wonk or the entertainer? We all know the answer.
Trump says his tax cuts would cost $4.4 trillion over 10 years, most of it paid for by economic growth. We’ve been here before. Both Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush tried “trickle-down” economics. We should have learned two lessons.
After Hillary Clinton went a bit wobbly at the 9/11 memorial, the internet went off the deep end with speculation about her health, and whether she’s even the real Hillary Clinton.
Joseph Stiglitz discusses tensions between globalization and democracy, and what the euro experiment tells us about the need to resist bad trade deals like the TPP and bad tax deals that favor big corporations like Apple.
This election isn’t just about whether Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump will be president. Ballot initiatives will give voters the chance to raise the minimum wage for workers in four states.
Wall Street, the multinational corporations and President Obama are pushing for a vote on the Trans-Pacific Partnership after the election. Wednesday, September 14, is a national call-in day to Congress to stop this.
Trump claims he’s told Americans all they need to know about his finances. But after this whole Bondi affair, it’s probably better to go with a version of the Reagan admonition when dealing with the Trump tax returns: distrust and verify.
If Donald Trump wasn’t the Republican nominee, what would it take for his words and actions to be labeled treason? In fact, why does no one dare call it treason?
More than 200 prominent legal and economic scholars warned about how the Trans-Pacific Partnership would empower multinational corporations to challenge U.S. laws through a corporate tribunal.
Voter ID laws like North Carolina’s “monster law” have very little to do with “voter fraud,” and everything to do with conservatives' willful failure to win through persuasion the votes of black and brown people.
Hillary Clinton should make appointing Supreme Court justices who would reverse Citizens United a centerpiece of her campaign. Under Donald Trump, billionaires buying politicians will continue for a generation.
We cannot easily compare the policy visions of the two major party candidates, because only one candidate is bothering to offer a comprehensive set of policy proposals.
The organizations are opposing TPP in part because of its investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) provisions, which allow corporations to sue governments in "corporate courts."
Donald Trump reverted to type with his immigration speech, delivered shortly after his visit to Mexico. After flirting with “softening” his position, the old Trump-style xenophobia was a hit with some, not with others.
Trump says we need to fix our trade policies. That's correct. But Trump also advocates driving US wages down so low that companies won't want to move factories to find lower wages.
A script prepared for Donald Trump for an interview about race with a Detroit pastor reveals his antipathy for even acknowledging the existence of systemic racism. The Movement for Black Lives agenda offers a contrast.
Robert Borosage, in the final Burning Issues video, presents a challenge to progressives to continue the debate on foreign and domestic policy opened up by Sen. Bernie Sanders' presidential campaign.
High on decibels, low on policy details and devoid of anything new, Donald Trump’s latest immigration speech was still a chilling reminder of why he must not become president.

The EU decided that Ireland's tax deal with Apple, based on Apple demanding a tax break to "bring jobs" to Ireland instead of somewhere else, is "state aid" to the company.
Trump called Pennsylvanians vote thieves, although the state GOP could find absolutely no in person voter fraud in the state. None. But that doesn’t matter because when Republicans like Trump cheat, they think everyone else cheats too.
The Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership has provisions similar to the those in the Trans-Pacific Partnership that would allow multinationals to sue governments in a special trade court.
