Commentary:
BLOWS AGAINST THE "EMPIRE"
The 'Islamic State' and
the Ukraine Crisis in American Politics

by Richard E. Berg-Andersson TheGreenPapers.com Staff

A century ago, as I now type this, Europe was coming to the end of but its first month of what was originally called 'the Great War' (which would come, soon enough, to be called 'the World War' [and which, but a quarter century later, would have to actually be numbered!]), that which would (though no one could yet know it as August became September 1914) become a more than four year-long military conflagration (the then-ultimate in "organized barbarism", as a Japanese diplomat once termed War while in conversation with Western diplomats less than a decade prior, when he wryly told them: "Only when we [the Japanese] had proven ourselves in organized barbarism [here referring to the Russo-Japanese War of 1904/05 (which Japan won)] were we then admitted into your councils [those of the Great Powers in the West] as civilized men").

New page: Relative Political Party Strength by SECTION and Region
by Richard E. Berg-Andersson

Relative Political Party Strength by SECTION and Region. A mathematical model of the Relative Strength of the two Major Parties going into the 2014 Midterm Election.

On this page, the reader will find tables delineating the relative "strength" of the two Major Political Parties here in the United States of America in each SECTION, Region (and even, in a few cases, sub-Region) throughout the country-- in this case, going into the 2014 Elections based on how each State within such SECTION, Region (and sub-Region) has voted for President of the United States, its own Governor, its Congressional delegation (that is: its two United States Senators plus its member[s] of the U.S. House of Representatives) and its own legislature. The point values found in the tables below will, in most cases, certainly be altered by the results of the 4 November 2014 General Election itself.
