Neo-liberals

Neo-liberalism is the political philosophy of the ruling establishment around the world. The book, Bernie or Bust: Pioneers of Electoral Revolt, presents a critical analysis of neo-liberalism in the United States. This political philosophy, we note on pp. 204-205, “has permeated and transformed international institutions, non-governmental organizations and even to the roots of society and everyday culture.” 

This web page is a list of articles about the neo-liberal, corporate-friendly candidates for President in 2020 and to expose their records. Candidates lie, so pay attention to what they have done, not what they say as a candidate. Starting with the 2016 election, who aligned with the uber-neoliberal, Secretary Clinton?

Former Vice-President Joe Biden:

Biden exemplifies a disastrous approach of jettisoning progressive principles and failing to provide a progressive populist alternative to right-wing populism. That’s the history of 2016. It should not be repeated.” ~Norman Soloman
