Top-2 Primary in CA Tuesday June 5

“Top-2” Primary June 5 Since 2010, Californians have an “open direct primary” election for all state offices, in which all candidates regardless of party are on the same ballot, and only the top two vote-getters appear on the November general election ballot, when many more people vote. This effectively bars “third party” candidates from the general election and can even result in two Dems or two GOP candidates facing off in the fall. Now may be your only chance to vote your conscience. A number of propositions [...]

Letter to the Editor: Enough! with “Ultra-Leftism”

Dear Editor: I’ve been tempted to write more than once before, but your “Editorial Commentary” graphic in the January issue moves me finally to say Enough! with what I would call ultra-leftism in the current epoch. If at this late date, a year into President Trump, the editors of Change-Links do not see that there is indeed some “difference between Democrats and Republicans,” then you and I are truly inhabiting different planets. The Democrats are not perfect. They are collectively far from perfect. But we would be [...]

Now, ceremony is the merest husk of faith and loyalty; It is the beginning of all confusion and disorder. —Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu, poem 38 Much as one might try to escape it, catching [...]

The President’s Leftovers

THE PRESIDENT'S “LEFTOVERS” By Rob Macon As the election approaches, President Obama prepares to walk the Oval Office one final time.
