A U.S. presidential election comes a wealth of patriotic platitudes. Chief among these bromides is the oft-repeated assertion that America is the greatest nation on Earth. Until now, I've accepted that statement as gospel. But rather than simply take it on faith, I figured it was an appropriate time to assess and confirm its factual underpinnings.

America's Two-Party System Is Strange

The "big tent" factor of both American parties and the constraints of the "winner-take-all" presidency makes for some particularly strange bedfellows. But is the two-party system under attack this election cycle? It certainly seems so -- and it could well be to Secretary Hillary Clinton's advantage.

What Do Trump And Sanders Mean To Canadian Politics?

Many Canadians are looking aghast at the rise of Donald Trump as the Republican Party's front-runner for President of the United States. How can someone so boorish and who espouses such hard ideas that are regularly called fascist-like be leading contender for president of a country that prides itself as being a freedom-loving democracy? Well, there's an explanation; just not exactly a reasonable one.

For the average voter, it's hard to analyze this fight over political labels. Republicans and Democrats alike have their arcane political litmus tests. But it's really not that difficult if you use this handy guideline to help ideologically classify the candidates:

Please stop insulting, trashing and schlonging your fellow candidates. That's not the Christian, Islamic, Jewish, Hindu or Buddhist thing to do. And please, please, please don't use my name to promote a pro-gun agenda. I've worked for millennia to build a peace-loving reputation and I don't need you undermining it.

Hillary Clinton could not be in a better position for the November election. Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, who appear to stand in her way, are actually helping her to position herself for victory. Issues and ideology aside Hillary is way ahead of the pack in the the game of political chess and should have no trouble winning in November.

Not since I was 18 and U. S. Senator Eugene McCarthy was running for president in 1968 at the height of the Vietnam War have I felt such an urge to get involved. Today in 2016 I look towards America from my chilly Canadian perch and I again fear for my American friends, although this time the enemy is a heartless, right-wing plutocracy threatening to destroy the middle class.

On February 15, 2016, I went to a Bernie Sanders rally in Ypsilanti, Michigan. He is a hero to so many, and even if he does not get the nomination he has begun to make others advocate for what is right. He has done what so many other politicians have failed to do, get the attention of the young voter.

Michel Kelly-Gagnon

The lessons to draw from the Danish model are clear, even if they're not the ones Bernie Sanders would like us to draw. The Danes benefited from low taxes in order to get rich, and they remain fairly well-off thanks to a light regulatory touch, but their extensive welfare state is not the great success it's cracked up to be.
