"The strongest case for noncitizen voting today is representation: The more voters show up to the polls, the more accurately elections reflect peoples’ desires."

From by Atossa Araxia Abrahamian (NYT), who favors "lifting voting restrictions on legal residents who aren’t citizens — people with green cards, people here on work visas, and those who arrived in the country as children and are still waiting for permanent papers." The proposition quoted in the post title is untrue, but it's a widely held belief, that it's better to have more people voting. But every person who votes offsets someone else's vote — up to the point where you have the voters who ...

Though the federal judge blocked new DACA applicants going forward, the existing 616,000 recipients aren’t affected–at least for now—and will still be able to renew work permits and deportation deferrals. “Dreamers represent the very best of wh...

‘Who Was Karl Marx’ an Essential Primer for Understanding ‘American Left’

This isn’t just an opinion. Simpson backs up his claims with proof, and with extensive endnotes. U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “It’s not about guns, it’s about freedom” is a truism too many ostensible “gun rights leaders” deliberately ignore when they wear blinders around the so-called “single issue.” Ignoring social and political impacts to the right to keep and bear arms that might not take the form of direct threats will nonetheless help shape the environment in which infringements prevail. Th...

The year is 1924: the restriction acts designed to turn the tide of Eastern and Southern European immigration into a trickle have been signed into US law. Nativist panic continues apace, however, even among the upper classes, perhaps especially among the educated upper-middle classes—whose strengthened churches and preparatory schools and country clubs guard the Anglo-Protestant marriage market and the not-so-free masonry of finance capital. What is to become of America when these newcomers of s...
