We need to have a uniform Federal and Statewide voting system! That system should be the STAR voting system! No more "run offs," "special elections" needed! https://youtube.com/shorts/Zy86WYmHvMk?feature=share

Ali, you keep saying there are only two choices. That is not true. There are viable third party candidates on the ballot. it is not a true Democracy if you discount or refuse to acknowledge them? There is more than a binary choice! Trumpublicans are not a real party, they are a racist cult that thrives on conspiracy theories and lies! That leaves Democrats that are betrayed by Manchin & Sinema, who are Trumpublicans in Democratic guise. The duopoly always acts like third parties are "spoilers," when the truth of it is, the duopolies are the spoilers! Trumpublicanshave no message or platforms, other than hate and the replacement theorists. The Democrats had some good ideas, but the took over and adopted our Green New Deal. Then as usual, polluted it by adding money & incentives to it! I used to be Democrat all my life, until 2003. It was then that I found out about the Green Party, joined and never looked back. It is the only International Party, and is in over 90+ Nations. The Green

Please post this weekend's podcasts. Who is responsible for this? Is it the programme production team or a central unit at the station. Weekend shows and Ari Melber often missed.

Ali, When I was a boy in the Navy, my roommates and I told the Secretary of the Navy, that we were gay, and asked for an administrative discharge. when our Battalion received the request, we were told that "no one would know!" Everyone knew, and they told our friends to "unfriend" us. while awaing our discharge, I was "gang raped," on the Camp Pendleton base. Sodomized and bloody, I drove myself home. I couldn't tell anyone on base, not even the Commander, because the Battalion had betrayed us, and I didn't think I should tell the people who caused my rape to happen, and I didn't know who had participated in it. (the rape) It has taken years of therapy to even be able to talk about my Military Sexual Trauma, (MST) and PTSD. It is long overdue, that sexual assault, and MST, should be handled by Sexual Assault Professionals, not the crippled and unknowledgeable Military system! https://www.gp.org/fimbres_compassionate_candidate
