I think I've it figured out: The people who loved Palin are the ones who now love Trump. It is just that they have more hope now because Trump is louder and even less self-disciplined, and they believe the bulldozer approach will work. But it's the same people. Trust me.

Sanity is being rather outspoken, but has history on his side.

and it matters to me, because the UK is tied to US Foreign Policy.

From what I have read lately, there is no comparison between Mr Sanders and Mrs Clinton.....centre left people should ALL be voting for Sanders.
In the UK the Labour party has a real socialist as leader, elected in a landslide by the party membership.....The Parliamentary Labour MPs are for the most part self serving hypocrites in the mould of Tony Blair......the party membership(the rank and file) want a rather mild form of socialism to combat the austerity agenda of the tories.
The sitting MPs don't want anything to do with socialism as they think it will make Labour unelectable.
Mr Corbyn(the leader) seems to be working to educate the electorate, to explain what socialism really means and he knows that it will take a decade or more for change to happen. Sometime "electability" is meaningless if people don't know what the labels they vote for signify
Politics should not be about jobs for the boys and girls who toe the line, it should be about principles and constructing a fairer society

If GfS can't spell Hillary, then what price the Scottish specimen who can't even spell his own moniker?

In Scotland, you have it easy. A party decided to treat everybody equally, came to power in your devolved government where The UK government wipes your ass anyway and to the surprise of many, turned out to be good for all, even if they can't afford it.

The SNP introduced marriage for all, regardless of gender. It stated recently to have gender equality on boards of public sector bodies. It has cruel sports with animals in its sights and it enjoys the prosperity and jobs that UK allows it to have through Trident.

Don't confuse your utopia with the stain we call US politics.

It certainly looks as though Americans are going to be faced with a pretty depressing choice next year. Of course if Trump ends up as the Republican candidate, it'd be not just depressing, but terrifying, and not just for Americans. He'd make Dubya look quite tolerable in retrospect.

It seems Trump is the testosterone-fueled version of Palin ...witness his mini temper-tantrum the other day in Iowa when he railed "how stupid can the people of Iowa be?" (addressing a group of Iowans in Iowa) because he's lost some ground to Ben Carson in that state (do you suppose his campaign advisors just threw in the towel at that point?...oh to be a fly on the wall when they met afterwards ..."This guy is a loose cannon! We can't do anything with him.." --or thereabouts). It was Trump's version of Palin's "I can see Russia from my window" profound observation....

Kudos to Fox Business channel the other night during the debate for actually directing some substantive questions towards the candidates regarding the economy, banking, trade...stuff you would expect from a business-oriented news organization-- and a telling moment when a couple other candidates got deep in the weeds arguing the finer points of some policy issue: dead silence from Carson and Trump ...a telling moment since neither Trump nor Carson has studied the issues enough to comment no further than to mouth some simple-minded platitudes aimed at pleasing the low-info voter. "Let's make America great again!" (through ignorance of the issues) ...

Sen. Rand Paul gets the debate award for making Trump look like an amateur on trade policy after Trump was asked his opinion of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement and Trump plays his China-bashing card (which reads, more or less, "China is bad. They don't play fair. They beat me up on the playground and took my lunch money away."). Paul: "Ummm... I think we should point out that China is not part of this deal..."   ..this from the senator from Kentucky and home-perm cautionary tale (as Stephen Colbert described him) Rand Paul...(did Trump later tweet that Rand Paul's mother wears army boots...or some other clever come-back?).

Trump will probably declare all Americans dumb as a box of hammers when the nomination goes to some other candidate. As retribution he will threaten to buy all the states who caused him to lose and turn them into golf courses.

Perhaps before he calls the moderators he at least gets the nationality of a person posting right. Never mind who he would like the person to be.

As I said, Scotland is a model that those who worry about the Republican v Democrat circus may take heart from. You do it a state legislature at a time regardless of White House incumbent and if your party captures the imagination of the people, then your grass root movement could either alter the main party lines or provide an alternative.

The people of Scotland were fed up with sectarian lines, bigotry and the national government taking them for granted. The SNP promised a liberal inclusive local government and they have been true to their word, reflecting what people wanted. Public services, equality and inclusiveness. They tackled bigoted opposition to gay marriage, promote gender equality in the board room, try to protect front line public services and stick to their motto "prosperity through equality."

Nobody ever said a level playing field brings results but it's a start... Compare that to the GOP candidates.

Just to keep the record straight, Palin never claimed to be able to see Russia from her home. That was Tina Fey in her impersonation of Palin.

In reality, Russia and Alaska are their closest to each other at a certain point across the Bering Strait, a good many miles up-coast. The islands, Little Diomede (American) and Big Diomede (Russian) are fewer than three miles apart, and therefore visible to each other.

Seriously, I'm not sure that being "university educated" is a positive when looking for a political leader.

They need that special ingredient the ability to inspire trust, the common touch, unshakable belief in themselves and the ability to persuade large numbers of people to their cause

Think Bill Clinton. You may not have liked him if you're a conservative, but he has charisma, charm, and is smart. He has feet of clay, but he was one excellent politician. Having not only a college degree but advanced degrees gave him the tools to do the job.

Palin couldn't stay put in one college, she jumped around until someone finally let her graduate, probably making her sign a form saying that if they let her graduate with a BA she would not torment any other institutions of higher education in her "pursuit" of education.

I did not see Bill Clinton as an inspirational leader, although he did have a sleazy charm.....an excellent politician? I suppose Tony Blair was also "an excellent politician"........not exactly a compliment. Both were crooks, devious self serving and completely immoral, egos adrift.

I suspect that Acme is right- they finally let Palin graduate. From her 5th college, if I recall correctly. She got -not necessarily, earned - a degree in journalism. Not sure what she learned from it.

I don't think of Bill Clinton as having had "a sleazy charm". The man, I think, does have empathy with people. It is too bad that his own little demons were not contained.

I think what we're facing is a world-wide awakening of sorts wherein people are choosing between degrees of authoritarianism and governments that are responsible to the electorate (which is after all what responsible government means).

There is a fundamental difference between the views held by Conservatives/Republicans and those held by Socialists/Liberals that seems to dance between how labour is perceived and whether humans are simply a source of capital. We've seen the beginning of a Conservative return-to-the-drawing-board regarding their philosophy in Canada, but the country has been left in such a deplorable mess after nine years of Conservative corruption that the incoming Liberals have a big pile of doodoo to clean up, and they will be held accountable come the next election in 2019.

I think it likely that Republicans will have to face the fact they do not know what they're doing and let a more rational group of people govern. Who that rational group is will be decided in your (the USA's) next federal election. The voice of the Republicans is out of proportion to its worth. They simply own more media, and that's where today's connected world gets its information from. I doubt the Republican popular vote will exceed 43% simply because Americans are not as stupid as their media shows them to be or tries to convince them they are. Time will tell.

The problem is #, that they both work for the same boss.
It's "good cop"/ "bad cop" and they are both working for capitalism.

We see it here in the UK now, back a few years ago politicians were elected on their personal credentials and the Socialists (who are not always liberals BTW) really fought to change the system, while the old "one nation conservatives" wanted the economy to run along as it always had done, (trickle down economics)
They (the conservatives) had a point, we were a top manufacturing nation we could steal resources and pay good money....as Mr MacMillan used to say "we've never had it so good"

Now the wheel has gone full circle we no longer manufacture and our young people are too expensive to train, almost all "Labour" politicians hold no socialist principles in fact they hate the word because socialism is no longer understood by the electorate, it has been assigned to the political dustbin.   It will take at least a decade to re-educate a population which can no longer sustain itself under capitalist economics.

We are being fooled by capitalist politicians and a capitalist media into accepting mad social change in place of meaningful systemic change......somewhere along the line we will have to accept that now we are on the wrong side of the capitalist cycle.
Natural resources are diminishing, we are reduced to importing cheap foreign labour in a vain attempt to support a wasteful and unsustainable lifestyle.

I think that exactly the same scenario is being played out in the US, the partisan attitudes of our members proves it. Change will never be achieved while two sections of the population are at each others throats......there is a slightly socialist candidate available in Bernie, but millions of centre left people will vote for Mrs Clinton, despite the fact that she is really a hawkish, right wing "liberal", because they like "winning" meaningless elections.

As they say in the US....."Go figure"

Scotland is run by a liberal party, SNP. New Labour was everything the liberal party itself wanted to be.

The USA? The more the likes of Trump and Palin are out forward as political possibilities, the more the world worries.

That said, Akenaton is oddly on the ball regarding a manufacturing country vs a non manufacturing country and capitalism. Just forgot to factor in that the money is stateless.

If God Opens The Door, Sarah Palin Is Ready To Run Again

Posted: 11/17/2015

WASHINGTON -- Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) is keeping the door open to running for office again, saying she believes God doesn't want her to let her talents go to waste.

"I would [consider a run for office] because ... we know that we're equipped with passions, with interests, we're given those by our creator," Palin said Tuesday in an interview with conservative host Brian Kilmeade.

The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee has been floating the idea of running for office again in recent days as she tries to sell more books. On CBS's "Sunday Morning," she said she would be "willing" to throw her hat in the ring, and in a "Good Morning America" interview on Tuesday, she said God would show her the way forward politically.

"Living my life, putting it in God's hands, you just never know what door may be opened," Palin said. "And if that door was opened, I'm built to run through it."

I think if it came to a choice, many "liberals" would prefer Mr Trump to Mrs Palin, although Mr Trump fails to energise anyone but the commercial right and those who support it against their own interests.

Mrs Palin has appeal right across the political spectrum with the exception of born again Democrats who only vote for the label and politically savvy Republicans who both see her a huge danger to the political status quo. Whether you like her or loathe her she has definite leadership qualities......and the political establishment are running scared.

I know that I'm only a cynical old UKer, but I still see the rejection of someone with Mrs Palin's potential as a chance missed.
Surely anyone who even contemplates voting for Mrs Clinton, who as far as I can see has a terrible record in FP and no vision at all for the future, must be willing to try to change the political mold.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo.
(AP) Wednesday, November 18, 2015 —

A Denver-area store called Isis Books & Gifts wants the world to know its name comes from the Egyptian goddess of healing and motherhood and it isn't run by terrorists.

Co-owner Jeff Harrison said Wednesday that the suburban Denver shop has been vandalized five times in the past year or so, probably by people who mistake the name for ISIS, one of the acronyms for the Islamic State terrorist group.

The latest vandalism came last weekend when a store sign was smashed after the terrorist attacks in Paris that killed 129 people.

The store sells books and gifts related to spirituality, religion and healing.

"Isis is the name of an Egyptian goddess, 3,500 years old at least, the goddess of women and healing and childbirth — basically the antithesis of everything the terrorists are about," he said.

Harrison suspects the vandals are "some ignorant people believing that somehow the terrorists have a store, a gift store, in the middle of Denver, Colorado."

Greg, you seem to be misunderstanding what I was getting at. I know you don't like Mrs Palin, but surely you dislike the Pub/Dem circus more? Nothing will change until the political status quo is challenged.

Mr Obama was a really nice guy, and folks had high hopes that he would bring in the change that he promised, but the system defeated him.....he wasn't allowed to bring in any change which radically altered the corporate biased political system.
Did Mr Obama try very hard? No, I don't think he did, he is a cautious lawyer steeped in corporate Chicago Democrat politics. It simply is not in his nature to rock the corporate boat.

Mrs Palin would have been a wild card, a populist, who I think could have united left right and centre. The Republican grandees feared and hated her even more than they did Mr Obama. The people who rule capitalism are happy for the "good cop/bad cop" scenario to continue.

I suppose what I'm saying is that US politics seems to be stuck in a partisan political dogfight between two parties who both work in the interests of one small section of society.

At the moment, anyone who looks capable of breaking the grid lock is demonised or sidelined.
If you want "change" it will be necessary to attack the whole political establishment, not just continue the war of attrition against your most hated label.

The people who constitute this forum are for the most part extremely intelligent, I am amazed by the totally partisan nature of their political positions.
They fail to see ANTHING positive in their opponents, or anything negative in their own "representatives"? This means of course that nothing in the way of political change can ever be achieved, especially from a left perspective.

The People

By Tommaso Campanella

(Italian philosopher, 1568–1639. Translation by John Addington Symonds)



THE PEOPLE is a beast of muddy brain
That knows not its own strength, and therefore stands
Loaded with wood and stone; the powerless hands
Of a mere child guide it with bit and rein;
One kick would be enough to break the chain,         5
But the beast fears, and what the child demands
It does; nor its own terror understands,
Confused and stupefied by bugbears vain.
Most wonderful! With its own hand it ties
And gags itself—gives itself death and war         10
For pence doled out by kings from its own store.
Its own are all things between earth and heaven;
But this it knows not; and if one arise
To tell this truth, it kills him unforgiven."

I fail to see anything positive in Palin. She is the exact opposite of the way you're trying to portray her. Far from being a "uniter" she is a strictly partisan politician who is not bright enough to comment in detail on any of the major issues facing the world (if you have any video clips or speeches demonstrating that this is not true please provide them). She maintains her brand by dishing out pre-masticated sound bites prepared by her handlers to excite her equally dull and extremely conservative "fan base". She is the darling of social conservatives that know they're supposed to hate liberals but who can't be bothered to delve much further than that into issues. The only republicans who pay her any attention these days are the occasional, desperate presidential aspirant who hopes to siphon off some of her "fans".

It doesn't HAVE to be Mrs Palin. but it must be a powerful personality with the ability to unite; her lack of political expertise is a positive in breaking the moribund template of American politics.

She arrived on the scene after the trauma of Bush's Iraq adventure, the time was right for change, and what did you get, a black Chicago lawyer steeped in the machinations of Chicago Democrat politics.
It would have been almost impossible to find anything more divisive.
To compound the problem, he filled his administration with hawkish right wingers, ramping up the phoney war.
