Family Background -
Andy Schmookler was born in the spring of 1946 to parents who had grown up in poverty.
During the depression, Andy’s mother, Pauline, had to drop out of school at the age of 15 to support her ill mother and her two younger sisters. Decades later, though she never graduated from high school, she got her college and two masters degrees and became a high school teacher of literature.
His father, Jacob was able to go to college thanks to his own mother’s working 14-hour days at a sewing machine to make it possible. After World War II, Andy’s father earned his doctorate in economics and began an academic career.
By the time Andy was 10, his family had a secure footing in the American middle class.
His parents raised him and his brother, Ed. They taught their sons to have passion for justice, a deep commitment to honesty and integrity, and they instilled the value of hard work. For Andy’s father, the honest pursuit of the truth was a paramount value. He taught the discipline of reasoned inquiry. And for his mother, a key value was that human worth does not lie in rank or wealth, but in beauty of soul, and that gems can be found in every group and at every stratum.
A Record of Accomplishment -
Equipped with these values, and with a love of learning:
•Andy graduated Valedictorian in his high school class in the Twin Cities in Minnesota.
•He graduated with highest honors in the field of Social Relations from Harvard University.
•For his graduate studies he attended the University of Chicago in Social Thought and at Yale in American Studies.
•Andy earned his doctorate from the University of California at Berkeley and the Graduate Theological Union in a program specially created to accommodate his original theory to explain the way that human civilization has developed.
His doctoral work was published The Parable of the Tribes (University of California Press, 1984; second edition from SUNY Press, 1995), which was awarded the Erik H. Erikson prize by the International Society for Political Psychology.
This book led the way to a successful career as the author of many published books, most of them seeking to understand the forces that must be dealt with by our country, and by humankind generally, in order to create a good future for ourselves and for the generations to come. The books are entitled:
•Out of Weakness: Healing the Wounds that Drive Us to War (Bantam Books, 1988),
•Sowings and Reapings: The Cycling of Good and Evil in the Human System (Knowledge Systems, 1989).
•The Illusion of Choice: How the Market Economy Shapes Our Destiny (SUNY Press, 1993, with translationpublished subsequently in Japan and Korea)
•Fool’s Gold: The Fate of Values in a World of Goods (Harper Collins, 1993).
•Debating the Good Society: A Quest to Bridge America’s Moral Divide (M.I.T. Press, 1999).
Dr. Schmookler is an accomplished author, social thinker, commentator, consultant, speaker and professor. His career accomplishments include:
•Serving as an analyst at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington. He helped with the analysis of possible future challenges for American policy-makers.
•Spearheading a project with the Public Agenda Foundation, in which he interviewed the best minds in the country, in various related fields, on how the United States might best achieve security in an age of weapons of mass destruction.
•Being hired, in the 1990s, by the United States Army to help with a project on the prevention of biological terrorism.
•Teaching at both the college level (Prescott College, Georgetown University) and at the high school level (Albuquerque Academy).
•Speaking at forums across the country such as the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars, the Washington Ethical Society, and as Presidential lecturer at the University of Montana.
•Publishing his commentaries in newspapers across the country for the past thirty-five years, and broadcasting them on radio stations nationwide.
•Serving as a consultant to one of America’s premier corporations.
A Sense of Calling -
But most of all, Andy Schmookler has followed a sense of calling. His first book was inspired by a visionary experience that proved life-changing. It led him to choose a life dedicated to service. For the great majority of the past forty years, Andy has done the work he senses he is supposed to do. Making money and getting ahead
have not dictated his life’s course.
For almost twenty years, Andy appeared regularly on WSVA radio out of Harrisonburg, Virginia in an entirely uncompensated role. He spoke with the people of the Shenandoah Valley about the issues of the day. He discussed questions of meaning and value that we all face in our day to day lives. Andy did this because he believes in the importance of meaningful dialogue in the search for truth and mutual understanding.
Beginning in 2004, Andy perceived something troubling about the dynamics operating within American politics. Believing that the nation was being damaged by a failure to confront the truth about the forces at work before our eyes, Andy devoted himself full-time –again without pay—to investigating and discussing the
moral crisis emerging in American society.
It is this same sense of calling, this same dedication to service, and this same sense of America being imperiled, that has led to Andy’s running for Congress in Virginia’s 6th District. He wants to rally his fellow citizens to uphold the ideals of our American democracy.
Devotion to Family -
Andy is a devoted husband and father.
He’s married to April Moore, a writer and lover of the earth, and between them they have three children:
Nathaniel, who just graduated from Harvard and wants to be a writer of fiction; Terra who lives in California and is a licensed
clinical psychologist happily engaged to be married; and Aaron, married and a teacher and creator of theater.
Andy is proud of his three children, all continuing the family tradition of working hard in service to the values they hold dear.
After twenty-five years of marriage to April, he is more in love with her than ever.
It is urgent that we put people back to work in America.
This high unemployment hurts the people who want jobs but can’t find them. It hurts their families, trying to make ends meet, trying to hold onto their homes. It hurts our communities. It is holding our economy back from the strong recovery we need. It is a major cause of our federal deficit.
Wise government policy CAN get us out of this ditch.
American corporations have hired lots of people since the recession bottomed out. Unfortunately, they’ve done their hiring overseas. With the right policies, the government can change the incentives for these corporations so that American companies provide jobs to American workers.
Our infrastructure is in bad shape. A few years ago, our engineers gave it a grade of D. Now is the perfect time for governments to spend the money to give us an infrastructure suitable for a great country in the 21st century. The private sector is sitting on its capital and won’t be squeezed out of the credit markets by this investment in our infrastructure. And this investment will put people back to work and help revive the larger economy.
America will pay a high cost, over the long term, for allowing this high unemployment to damage the life-prospects of our youth, who should now be finding their place in the American workplace.
Three generations ago, during the Great Depression, the government stepped in with jobs programs that helped the youth of that era develop good work habits and feel part of the larger American enterprise while also contributing to the nation.
We can do that again, until the private sector is ready to hire them.
These are but some of the available solutions. But with our current politics, good ideas cannot get enacted.
The Republicans took over Congress in 2010 promising job creation. But since they’ve been in power, they’ve blocked every measure that would put people to work. Their ideology insists on the nonsensical notion that government cannot create jobs (though that’s who issues THEIR paychecks).
The American people have told pollsters that getting people back to work is their top priority, not the cuts that actually kill off more jobs.
America needs Democrats in Congress who will fight harder so that all Americans have the opportunity to fulfill their God-given potential and contribute their best to a prosperous American community.
I am running for Congress in Virginia’s 6th District to be one of those Democrats.
It’s time that the needs of the American people came first in the halls of Congress, not the wants of those who have the most.
-By Andy Schmookler
HEALTH CARE AND MEDICAL CARE -
Our American health care system clearly has problems. Americans pay almost twice as much for health care as any other similar country, but the U.S. ranks only 37th in health care outcomes. Every year, 45,000 people die from lack of health insurance. Reform is clearly necessary.
But for decades, Republicans have disregarded these problems and obstructed every attempt to solve them. And now, the GOP has voted to destroy Medicare, even though that system is more efficient than private insurance companies. They claim it’s too expensive, but that’s only because costs in the entire health care system are out of control. The Republican plan would increase costs, and shift them from government onto older Americans.
Rather than destroy Medicare, we would do better to extend to every American the opportunity to join in Medicare Plus—using the Medicare structure but, unlike seniors, paying their own way without government subsidy. If private insurers really are superior, then they have nothing to be afraid of. But if not, then we could gradually turn the public option into a single-payer system providing universal coverage to every American at lower costs.
The results are in: our health care system delivers less bang for more bucks. It’s time for a new approach that provides quality service, saves money and saves lives.
DEBT AND DEFICIT: WHEN TO DEAL WITH IT-
Despite what we hear, now is not the time to be focused on the deficit. Now is the time to be focusing on putting people back to work, and reviving America’s economy. Spending should be cut and revenues raised once the economy is strong again.
Here’s why the Republicans’ focus is dangerously counter productive: it not only distracts us from the urgent
task at hand, which is to get Americans back to work, but it also threatens to make that problem worse by damaging our still-fragile recovery.
DEBT AND DEFICIT: INCREASING REVENUES-
When the economy is healthy again, that will be the time to address the remaining deficit. Restoring prosperity is the crucial first stop toward closing the deficit. Part of the rest of the task of closing the
deficit involves increasing federal revenues. The Republican refusal to consider the revenue side of the equation has no justification, in view of the facts about how the American distribution of wealth and taxation has become unbalanced and unjust in favor of the richest.
Measures that should be taken include: 1) closing inappropriate tax loopholes for corporations; 2) raising taxes on the richest Americans back to the level in the prosperous 1990s; and 3) creating various tiers for the richest Americans, so that billionaires are taxed at a higher marginal rate than a couple making 5,000.
DEBT AND DEFICIT: CUTTING SPENDING-
To the extent that spending cuts are needed in the coming years, we should focus on areas different from those the Republicans have been targeting. Instead of gutting Social Security, Medicare, and other vital government programs, we can best reduce the deficit by bringing health care costs under control and by cutting our
excessive defense budget. Fiscal discipline need not dismantle the programs and institutions that make America a great and humane society, or be achieved at the expense of our country’s most vulnerable citizens.
97% of leading climate scientists agree that climate change is a serious, man-made problem that needs to be addressed. And yet, America is not taking action to deal with this challenge because one of our two major parties has embraced the skepticism of a tiny minority of scientists. It is not coincidence that the only place where American policy is ignoring an overwhelming scientific consensus is one where our richest corporations have a vested interest in our ignoring the science. And we cannot afford to gamble with the only planet we have, and with the future well-being of our children and grandchildren, because dishonesty has corrupted our discourse. As a candidate for Congress, one of my priorities is to bring honesty and responsibility to the politics of climate change.
There are problems that require urgent attention, but Social Security is not one of them.
The financing of Social Security needs only minor adjustments in the coming years. Nonetheless, the same forces that opposed the creation of Social Security are now trying to use our country’s economic woes as an excuse to dismantle one of America’s most popular and successful programs.
Social Security is a central part of what makes ours a humane and caring nation, one providing a degree of dignity and security to many millions of Americans in their older years. One of my priorities as a member of Congress will be to defend Social Security from those who cannot be trusted to deal with it honestly.
A conservative, a moderate and a liberal walk into a bar. The bartender turns, looks up and says “Hello Mitt What will you have today.”
Watching the Republicans struggling to agree on a presidential candidate, one wonders whether the GOP shouldn’t just sit this election out – just give 2012 a pass.
You know how in Scrabble sometimes you look at your seven letters and you’ve got only vowels that spell nothing? What do you do? You go back to the pile. You throw your letters back and hope to pick up better ones to work with. That’s what Republican primary voters seem to be doing. They just keep going back to the pile but still coming up with only vowels that spell nothing.
There’s a reason for that: Their pile is out of date. The party has let itself become the captive of conflicting ideological bases: anti-abortion advocates, anti-immigration activists, social conservatives worried about the sanctity of marriage, libertarians who want to shrink government, and anti-tax advocates who want to drown government in a bathtub.
Sorry, but you can’t address the great challenges America faces today with that incoherent mix of hardened positions. I’ve argued that maybe we need a third party to break open our political system. But that’s a long shot. What we definitely and urgently need is a second party – a coherent Republican opposition that is offering constructive conservative proposals on the key issues and is ready for strategic compromises to advance its interests and those of the country.
Without that, the best of the Democrats – who have been willing to compromise – have no partners and the worst have a free pass for their own magical thinking. Since such a transformed Republican Party is highly unlikely, maybe the best thing would be for it to get crushed in this election and forced into a fundamental rethink.
Because when I look at America’s three greatest challenges today, I don’t see the Republican candidates offering realistic answers to any of them.
The first is responding to the challenges and opportunities of an era in which globalization and the information technology revolution have dramatically intensified, creating a hyperconnected world.
This is a world in which education, innovation and talent will be rewarded more than ever. This is a world in which there will be no more “developed” and “developing countries,” but only HIEs (high-imagination-enabling countries) and LIEs (low-imagination-enabling countries).
The second of our great long-term challenges are our huge debt and entitlement obligations. They can’t be fixed without raising and reforming taxes and trimming entitlements and defense. We absolutely cannot just cut entitlements and defense. That would imperil the personal security and national security of every American. We must also reform taxes to raise more revenues.
But when all the Republican candidates last year said they would not accept a deal with Democrats that involved even in tax increases in return for in spending cuts, the GOP cut itself off from reality. It became a radical party, not a conservative one. And for the candidates to wrap themselves in a cartoon version of Ronald Reagan is fraudulent.
Our third great challenge is how we power our future – without dangerously polluting and warming the earth – as the global population grows from 7 billion to 9 billion people by 2050, and more and more of them want to drive, eat and live like Americans.
Two billion more people who want to live like us? We can’t drill our way out of that challenge, which is why energy efficiency and clean power will be the next great global industry. Real conservatives – like Richard Nixon, the father of the Environmental Protection Agency, and George H.W. Bush, the author of the first cap-and-trade deal to curb acid rain – believe in conserving. The current Republican candidates are so captured by the oil and coal lobbies that they can’t think seriously about this huge opportunity for energy innovation.
Until the GOP stops being radical and returns to being conservative, it won’t provide what the country needs most now – competition – competition with Democrats on the issues that will determine whether we thrive in the 21st century. We need to hear conservative fiscal policies, energy policies, immigration policies and public-private partnership concepts – not radical ones. Would somebody please restore our second party? The country is starved for a grown-up debate.

Once upon a time, in a land far away, a right wing republican happened upon a frog sitting and contemplating ecological issues on the shores of an unpolluted pond in a verdant meadow near a pristine castle. The frog hopped into the republicans lap and said ” I was once a great leader who presided over a land of plenty. All my subjects were employed and our standard of living was the best in the world and we had cured almost all diseases. Our educational system was second to none and home ownership was the norm. If you will save me and take me home I will give to you all the secrets of creating a virtual garden of eden here on earth.” That night, the republican dined sumptuously on a repast of lightly sautéed frog legs seasoned in a white wine and shallot cream sauce.
What do you call a Republican who makes their money honestly?
You might be a Republican if…
You’ll spend billion guarding a bridge against the possibility of a terrorist attack, but won’t spend 20 cents to keep it from falling down on its own.
Where can you find a Republican politician who’s not currently taking bribes?

Rush Limbaugh was riding down a country road in his limo, when his driver accidentally hit and killed a pig. Limbaugh told the chauffeur to drive up to the farm and apologize to the farmer. They drove up to the farm, and the chauffeur got out. He knocked on the front door and was let in, but remained inside for a surprisingly long time. When the chauffeur returned, Limbaugh asked what had taken so long.
“Well,” the driver explained, “when I went in, the farmer shook my hand and offered me a beer. Then his wife brought me some cookies, and his daughter showered me with kisses.”
“What did you tell the farmer?” Limbaugh asked. The chauffeur replied, “I told him that I was Rush Limbaugh’s driver and I’d just killed the pig.”

Rocky Anderson, co-founder and presidential candidate of the newly formed Justice Party, TV appearancesTuesday, December 27th, 2011
Rocky Anderson is the former mayor of Salt Lake City. In August, he denounced and left the Democratic Party. Earlier this month he announced the formation of a new party, the Justice Party, the nomination of which he’ll be running for. The party is starting its organizing by recruiting interested volunteers online and attempting to register about 103,000 voters in California by the ballot access deadline of January 2. Below are several television appearances he has made in the past week. From top to bottom, they are The Young Turks with Cenk Uygur on Current TV, The Big Picture with Thom Hartmann on RT, The Alyona Show on RT, Democracy Now!, a morning show on CNN, and on MSNBC.
And, although it wasn’t on TV, the following is an appeal from Rocky Anderson regarding the Justice Party’s current effort in California to get on the ballot for 2012 by registering about 103,000 “Justice Party” voters:
2008 Constitution Party presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin running for Lieutenant Governor of Montana as a RepublicanMonday, November 14th, 2011
Sioux Falls Conservative Examiner writer Lori Stacey reports that 2008 Constitution Party Presidential candidate Chuck Baldwin will run for Lieutenant Governor of Montana as a Republican:
The major announcement took place during the live broadcast of Pastor Chuck Baldwin’s sermon at Liberty Fellowship in Kalispell, Montana. He treated his congregation and many others watching online to a major political announcement this afternoon.
Dr. Chuck Baldwin, the 2008 Presidential Nominee of the Constitution Party has accepted an invitation by Republican Gubernatorial candidate Bob Fanning to be his running mate for Lt. Governor of Montana.
In looking up Bob Fanning’s campaign website, I noticed that this is definitely official as Bob already has Chuck Baldwin listed as his Lt. Governor running mate.
Bob Fanning, a retired manufacturing CEO, is one of ten candidates vying for the Republican nomination for Montana governor in 2012. In Montana, gubernatorial candidates pick their running mates before the primary.

From an announcement from several years ago, posted at website of the national Green Party:
This campaign is a coordinated effort of people across the country who will be withdrawing their checking accounts, mortgages, credit cards, etc. from the 20 Big Banks that fund the rapacious destruction of the planet and moving them to either a locally based bank/credit union or one supporting their values. The determining factor where to place accounts will be excellence; banks and credit unions that have a history of supporting the community in a sustainable way… – gp.org
From a 2008 interview with Laura Wells, who has run for several high profile offices as the Green Party candidate:
“Yes, the Green Party platform explicitly supports credit unions, realizing that credit unions help keep money circulating within local communities, rather than heading straight to distant headquarters of giant for-profit financial institutions. By helping in areas including housing, local employment, small business development, credit unions are an important element of the Green Party value of ‘community-based economics.’” – Laura Wells

The Democratic Candidate for Senator from Virginia’s 22nd District is Bert Dodson.
The Tea Party has picked the Republicn candidate to run for senator fron the 22nd district and that man is Tom Garrett. The Republicans left in the party are not happy but the Tea Party controls their direction. Here’s what the conservatives at Bearing Drift were saying about Garrett just before the election.
“Tom Garrett burst onto the scene in the 22nd without much background. Does he live in the district? This still remains unclear. His record stands on one professional accomplishment alone — turning Louisa County into the pedophile capital of Virginia. In some instances, his zeal for prosecuting these cases has resulted in the victim not even being consulted before the case went before the judge. Tom Garrett’s one-man crusade — while laudable in its own right — has often made it very difficult for Garrett to discuss his record on pedophilia among pro-family groups (or crowds involving children). Garrett’s speeches on the “four branches of government” strike the Tea Party-attuned ear as odd.”
“Lastly, Garrett’s history of not paying bills — including a ,000 bill for child care services where Garrett was found liable — renders Garrett easy prey for DPVA researchers. Garrett can be lauded for this though — repairing his marriage. If the money Garrett spent on the State Senate race was the catalyst for reuniting his family on the campaign trail, Bearing Drift sincerely wishes him all the best. That story — under reported and personal –is probably one of the best stories of the Virginia primary season. Conservatives in the 22nd District would be well served to consider alternatives without the baggage.”
The Editors at Bearing Drift have some thoughts on other republicans as well. ”Claudia Tucker, the one-time Vance Wilkins aide who became caught up in the eavesdropping scandal in the early part of last decade, fizzled on both her fundraising promises and her campaign efforts.” Looking at the results we see that Tucker ran a poor race geting about a third of the votes of the other 4 candidates and finishing dead last. She played the role of spoiler and cut the throat of the expected winner. Her future in Republican politics looks dim.
“Brian Bates, the long-time Buckingham supervisor may surprise folks on how well he may do, but his long-standing record of multiple tax increases and questionable position on life have scared off most conservatives in this race.” The Tea Party and Ultra Right Wing Republicans are now in control. The social safety net is in danger of being destroyed.
“Mark Peake of Lynchburg and Bryan Rhode from Goochland have both earned the respect and admiration of the Bearing Drift editors so The Editors endorsed both candidates.” Five greedy republicans cutting each others throats to get one job. Throw in a heaping helping of Tea Party madness and you get the modern GOP here in the state of Virginia. Is it appropriate for Bearing Drift to spread rumors about candidate Tom Garrett not living in the district, without verifying whether it is true or not. The Bearing Drift Editors brought it up so lets have an answer. Does Tom Garrett live in the district he is running to represent? Now that Garrett has won the right to represent the Republicans in the General will the matter be swept under the carpet and forgotten? Thats the GOP way.

Click on over and read more Republican on Tea Party attack stories.
Thankfully Bert Dodson is running for Senate from the 22nd District. Normal clear headed working people have someone to vote for. The tea party has saddled the Republicans with a candidate who is just as bozo as the tea party. The “don’t tax the rich crew” want to end social security and medicare and all women’s health services.
The tea party people want to stop Pell Grants and educational programs. To these people being successful and rich means you don’t have to pay your fair share of taxes. These republicans are willing to destroy the country we live in to get their way. We need Bert Dodson in Richmond and hopefully the voters will see it that way. If not, God Help Us.
Its time for you dizzy republicans to shake the cobwebs out of your heads and cast a vote for your country, while we still have a country. If you can’t free yourself from the Tea Party your days as a major political party are over.
