This is why we have to push to continue to be a part of politics even with the corruption, puppet administrations, and any other insults/negative aspects of politics. If good people/quality politicians leave politics…the bad will go to worse…#politico #wisdom #power #catch22
#repost @hamletmelo “Hoy es Día Internacional de Mandela al conmemorarse un año màs de su natalicio en 1918. Es la VIVA imagen de la lucha por los derechos de las personas, la alfabetización infantil, la unión de su país y la PAZ. Duró màs de 27 años en prisión acusado de sabotaje por rebelarse en contra del Apartheid, un sistema de separación de blancos y negros que pretendía conservar a los blancos. Que grande fuiste y que grande eres Madiba!” via @PhotoRepost_app

Hoy, fui al evento de prensa de #FEDOMUSDE a presentar las candidatas mujeres al cargos internos en #PRD. Por lo menos 11 vicepresidentas y 11 subsecretarias serían elegidos. En total hay 23 candidatas para vice presidente y 34 para subsecretarias nacionales. También fue una buena sorpresa ver una candidata para diputada que observé en 2006 como una vice presidenta del partido y la nueva presidenta de FEDOMUSDE. FYI - PRD fue el primer partido dominicano a poner un ley de cuota dentro de sus estatutos. ¡Buena Suerte a ellas este Domingo! #mujeresypolitica #womenandpolitics #lifeofascholar #repdom #politico

Doña Milagros salió en el Hoy de hoy. Dice la ex-Vice Presidenta, “Este República Dominicana de hoy, del control de los Poderes Públicos, de los problemas no resueltos, de la corrupción, la impunidad y la falta de institucionalidad, está convencida de que solo a través de una Convergencia de fuerzas sociales retaremos el camino de la democracia que necesitamos.” #womenandpolitics #morningpolitico #mujeresypolitica #repdom #DR #lifeofascholar
Ayy 😐 es así Señor Menéndez…no sé quién es el/la mentiroso/a…el Senador, los Cubanos, o las Dominicanas. Menéndez dice que los Cubanos son responsables de esas acusaciones sobre relaciones sexuales con prostitutas en la Rep  Dom. Los Cubanos dice que el Senador está usando el clásico EEUU contra Cuba porque de la dictadura/s Castro. Un sitio conservador dice que las Dominicanas dijeron que Menéndez había pagado por tener relaciones con ellas. —- Ay 😐 it’s like that Mr. Menéndez…I don’t know who the liar is…the senator, the Cubans, or the Dominicans. Menéndez says the Cubans are responsible for the rumors about him sleeping with prostitutes in the DR. The Cubans say Menéndez is using the US/Cuba embargo/anti-Castro dictatorship/s to avoid controversy. And a conservative site is saying they have word from Dominican prostitutes that Menéndez paid them for sex. #morningpolitico #nj #politico #periodicohoy Just when I was getting ok with the idea of staying in NJ after I graduate…the Senators in the other states I’ve lived in didn’t have this type of scandal around them. Way to live up to the stereotypes…Between Christie, this, and crazy house taxes…good luck stopping the Jersey migration

Hoje todos somos americanos! Vai Brasil Vai!!!/Today we are all Americans! Go Brazil Go!! #copaenossa #worldcup *fyi - just in case…American in terms of the continent.*

Happy Independence Day! 🎉🎊🎉🇺🇸On a day like today, many will recite the Declaration of Independence “we hold these truths to be self-evident” and many will recite the Constitution “we the people” but let us not forget the other important documents for understanding the founding of the United States as a republic - The Federalist Papers. Maybe it’s because I’m a political scientist but I love these papers. Because THESE are the documents that best allows us as people today to get inside the heads of the founders and really try to understand “what the founders intended.” And with so much going on in today’s politics concerning factions (FYI the Tea Party is a faction within the Republican & Libertarian parties NOT a party) Federalist Paper No. 10 is fitting to share. I admit I struggle between the balance between church and state e.g., where my beliefs stop and where the original intent of this country begins…but I believe if more of us as citizens read these papers we would find the solution to many of our political problems. In today’s Information Age you can google Federalist Papers and read any and all of them. You can also buy a book of the Papers which if brought used can be around $10. Finally, in case you can’t see some of the letters because of the background, “No man is allowed to be a judge in his own cause, because his interest would certainly bais his judgement, and, not improbably corrupt his integrity. With equal, nay with greater reason, a body of men are unfit to be both judges and parties at the same time; yet what are many of the most important acts of legislation…”
