Democratic Party decides to toughen its two-track policy 민주, 24시간 비상국회 운영키로..국회 정상화 움직임


Lawmakers are back at work at the National
Asssembly, and they spent Monday drawing up action plans for the coming weeks. based on
feedback they received from their constituents over last week’s Chuseok holiday.
Kim Yeon-ji reports. The main opposition Democratic Party rolled out a new action plan on Monday
that includes running a 24-hour headquarters within parliament to focus exclusively on
parliamentary business. For the past two months, the opposition party
has carried out an outdoor campaign in Seoul. in protest against allegations that the spy
agency meddled in last year’s presidential election. The street protest has divided the
Democratic Party’s attention and resources, but the party now says it will launch a separate
all-out campaign against the Park Geun-hye administration at the National Assembly.
At a meeting of its lawmakers Monday, Democratic Party leader Kim Han-gil asked the 126 lawmakers
to bring sleeping bags to the National Assembly and immerse themselves in legislative activities,.
while Kim himself said he would expand the outdoor protests nationwide.
The government’s attempts to scale back President Park’s basic pension plan will be at the top
of their agenda. During her campaign, President Park pledged
to give everyone who is at least 65 years old about 186 U.S. dollars a month,. but reports
say the welfare ministry will narrow the eligibility to people in the lower 70-percent income bracket
and vary the amount according to income level. Meanwhile, the ruling Saenuri Party convened
a meeting of its lawmakers Monday afternoon, and said it welcomes the opposition party’s
decision to resume parliamentary business. Saying that a slowing domestic economy is
the public’s biggest concern, the ruling party leadership urged its lawmakers to focus on
creating jobs and reviving the sluggish real estate market. “In response to the Democratic Party’s installation
of a 24-hour headquarters within the parliament, the ruling Saenuri Party plans to set up a
situation room to keep an eye on the opposition party. Meanwhile, the rival parties will begin
negotiating a date for the standing committees to resume work, and will get ready for the
upcoming audit of government offices.” Kim Yeon-ji, Arirang News.

How does the Alabama Democratic Party … errrrrmm … work?


The Alabama Democratic Party is in
crisis. The result of years of inept leadership by Party Chairwoman Nancy
Worley. Previously on “Kyle Complains About Things” Nancy Worley is incredibly
bad at her job. She pleaded guilty to asking public employees to help her
campaign. Worley let the party’s domain registration lapse and someone replaced
the party’s website with ads for weight loss scams and cheap abortions. Worley
demanded candidates pay money into a PAC which, at the time, did not legally
exist. Worley has paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees
fighting the Democratic Party. And the question I keep getting is “how?” “How is
this person still in charge?” Who put her there? Who keeps her there?
The answer is complicated, but if you really want to know: take a deep breath
because… here we go. Under party rules the party’s executive
committee is supposed to match the demographics of Democrats in the last
presidential election. And the state party has defined that strictly in terms
of black and white. Now you’re probably thinking,” What about all those
people who aren’t either of those things?” Well, we will get to that. The process
begins when Democratic voters pick their district representatives at the polls
during primaries. But those elected seats usually skew whiter than a perfect match.
So the party adds at-large members to balance things out. And who picks those
at-large members and how is a really big deal.
Under the old party bylaws, the Minority Caucus chose who filled those seats. If
you’re confused because the minority caucus is actually a majority of the
committee already… you’re right and just just hang on. Here’s where things get
really screwy. A majority of the minority caucus seats are controlled by a sort of
party within the party, called the Alabama Democratic Conference. A
political organization led by longtime party boss Joe Reed, who supports Nancy
Worley. At first ADC doesn’t have the votes to pick party leaders. But because
it has a majority of the minority caucus it gets to add more ADC people as
at-large members until… tada! ADC has a majority and picks… for some
reason… Nancy Worley! Even though all these other folks over here, a majority
of the elected members, can’t stand her and can’t stand Reed, either. And this
system isn’t that formal or even rule-abiding. I’ve personally witnessed
Reed just walk to the back of the room and hand someone a hangtag to somebody
he knows and say ,”Congratulations! You’re on the committee now!” Frequently all
those other folks, black and white, hold hands and push back on Reed and Worley.
But because of this system they can never get to a majority unless someone
changes the system. Which is exactly what the Democratic National Committee has
ordered them to do. The DNC has gone beyond seeing the world only in black
and white. Rhere are other demographics that matter, too. LGBT, Hispanic Americans,
Asian Americans, people with disabilities, and this is the big one: Young people! This is,
after all, the recipe for Democrats’ success. It cobbles together lots of smaller
constituencies to build majorities and win elections. And earlier this year the
DNC ordered the Alabama party to make room for all these other folks on the
State Executive Committee. But Reed doesn’t want those folks on the
committee. And he and Worley have fought like hell to keep them off. The other
problem the committee has is: It Is Old! Youth (defined by the DNC as people under
the age of 36) make up more than a third of Alabama Democratic voters, but they
hold fewer than 8% of the seats on the committee. What Worley and Reed fear is
that once all these other constituencies have a place on the executive committee
the ADC majority will be diluted. And they’re probably right. Not the
African-American majority, mind you. Because no matter how much Reed and
Worley want to say so, ADC and black voters are not the same thing. Just look
at history: like 2008. When the ADC endorsed Hillary Clinton in the
Democratic primary and black voters picked…somebody else. This is, as DNC
member Harold Ickes has said, about power not race. And Reed and Worley are
clinging desperately to power. But their time is running out. if you like this

Donald Trump: ‘I’ve got largest vote total in history of Republican party’


Donald Trump addressed the Republican National
Convention for the first time as the official party’s nominee. A little over one year ago, I announced my
candidacy for president and with your vote today this stage of the presidential process
has come to a close. Together we’ve achieved historic results with the largest vote total
in the history of the Republican Party. This is a movement, but we have to go all the way. I’m so proud to be a nominee for president
of the United States. After vanquishing 16 party rivals, warring
with much of the Republican establishment and sparking controversy at the party convention,
Donald Trump on Tuesday secured the party’s 2016 nomination for the White House. After vanquishing 16 party rivals, warring
with much of the Republican establishment
and sparking controversy at the party convention, Donald Trump on Tuesday secured the party’s
2016 nomination for the White House. And while his supporters were quick to praise
him, they were even quicker to criticise his opponent. Hillary Clinton, I call Killary Clinton. She left our people in Benghazi, she lied
about a video, I don’t want that. He’s not Hillary, that’s very important. There’s a lot of authenticity in his message.
You really believe he loves this country. The billionaire tycoon now has just under
four months to finish his campaign for America’s highest office – the White House.

Political Parties


Today we will learn about Political
Parties. Political parties are organizations of people who share the same views on government policies. Within the political parties members work
together to get candidates elected to office. The framers of the Constitution did not create political parties or intend for us to have them, political parties were created by citizens, early in US history who wanted to organize to support their political beliefs. Today anyone may become a member of a political party you just have to register. Political parties serve many purposes; one, they choose which candidates they’re going to run for office at meetings called caucuses; two, by existing they give
voters a choice and elections; three, they develop a party platform so the public knows their goals. A party platform is a statement of the party’s beliefs and
goals. Four, they fundraise for their candidates
campaigns; five, they educate the public by giving speeches, issuing written statements, and through advertising; and six they give voters a way to
participate in the political process. in the United States for the most part
we’ve always had two main political parties: today they’re called Democrats and Republicans, but over the last 200 years their names and beliefs have changed quite a few times. Democrats and Republicans are both
concerned about meeting American citizens basic needs; while Democrats tend to believe the government should directly provide education, housing, welfare, and jobs for the poor Republicans tend to believe that the government should help the nation’s economy grow and then people will have a better chance of finding work and meeting their own needs. The two-party system does have some disadvantages for example in a two-party system the viewpoints of minor political parties are often ignored the media spends a lot of time covering Democratic and Republican candidates for president, but does not give much airtime to candidates from the minor parties which brings us to third parties. Although the American political system has traditionally only consisted of two parties the Democrats and the Republicans there have been quite a few other parties, we usually call these minor parties “third parties” because they challenge the two-party system we have in place. A third party is a political group that competes against the two major parties one of the most successful third parties in US history was the “Populist party” sometimes known as the “People’s Party” in the 1890s. The populist party was a coalition of farmers and working-class people who thought senators should be elected by the people, and believe the government should enforce a mandatory eight-hour workday, though they didn’t win any presidential
elections, their ideas were adopted by future Democratic and Republican
presidencies. While no third party has ever won the presidency some third parties have affected the outcome of presidential
elections in 1912 former President Theodore Roosevelt split from the Republican Party and formed his own party called the Progressive Party sometimes known as the “Bull Moose party” when he left Roosevelt took many members of the Republican Party with him. With the Republican party’s votes now split in half between Theodore Roosevelt and the Republican Party candidate William Howard Taft they both lost the election to the Democratic nominee Woodrow Wilson. Third parties continue to influence the government and social beliefs in our
country for example in the 2016 election both the Green Party and Libertarian Party candidates received quite a bit of media attention leading up to the election Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party wound up with three percent of the
popular vote while Jill Stein of the Green Party received only 1% of the
popular vote, while these percentages are only a small
fraction of the number of votes needed to win a presidential election they do represent the opinions of millions of Americans. Political parties play a major role in the election process, the process of whom to vote for begins with primary elections. A primary election is an election that narrows the field of candidates within a political party, for example in the 2016 election six Democratic candidates wanted to run for
president, the Democratic Party used primary elections to narrow the six
candidates down to their final nominee Hillary Clinton. The Republican Party did the same narrowing eleven candidates down to their final nominee Donald Trump. The primary elections last from February to June of an election year after the primaries have finished the presidential candidates pick a running mate for the vice presidency then the political parties officially announce their candidates at their National conventions which usually occur in late summer between late July and early September. Candidates spend the next several months campaigning, making speeches, and participating in debates. The general election occurs on the
Tuesday after the first Monday in November, the general election is the proper name for the presidential election that occurs every four years after being elected the new president must choose cabinet members and advisors they will usually choose people from their political party who have shown them loyalty during their race for the presidency this is yet another way political parties affect the u.s. system of government.

LEARN ADVANCED ENGLISH – How to Talk About Canadian Politics


Hey there I’m Dana from Can Learn
English in this lesson I’m going to walk you through the electorial process in
Canada I’ll teach you the terms we use to talk about voting elections and
politics in Canada this lesson will help you to better understand the electoral
process and this is important because elected officials make decisions that
affect everyone who calls Canada home and even those who plan on living in
Canada in the future understanding how all of this works will help you to feel
more integrated and more a part of the community that you’re living in so let’s
get started with the lesson October 21st is an election day in
Canada on the state Canadians will elect a new government and possibly even a new
prime minister so when this day comes Canadians
all across Canada will head to their local polling station now a polling
station is a place it’s a building usually in a school or in a community
center that is temporarily set up for the purposes of this election these
polling stations are staffed by poll workers and it’s their job to do the
whole set up and to hand out ballots now a ballot is a piece of paper always a
piece of paper in Canadian federal and provincial elections and this is where
Canadians will mark who they want to vote for now the names on this ballot
will be candidates who are running for a position in government where the voter
lives this area is called a riding and this is a geographical region that is
represented by a politician there are 338 ridings in Canada these are also known as electorial districts and
they’re usually named after the community where they are so for example
I vote in London North Center this is my political riding the candidates that
the voter chooses from are usually associated with a political party and
how a political party is a group of individuals who share the same thoughts
and ideologies on how the government should be run Canada has a two-party
Plus system this means that historically federal politics have been dominated by
two major parties and then there has been several other smaller parties
involved as well the two main parties are the Liberal Party of Canada and
center-left meaning they advocate for more social reform and a more involved
government then you have the Conservative Party of Canada which is
that center-right so they would advocate for more traditional values and maybe
less government involvement since the 1980s there’s been a third place party
on the scene this is the New Democratic Party of Canada and they sit further
left than the Liberal Party there’s also a fourth place party this is the Bloc
Québécois they were partying out of Quebec and
they advocate for Quebec separatism and then finally we have the Green Party of
Canada this is an environmental party but they’ve only ever won one seat in an
election you can identify these parties by their colours the Liberal Party is
red the Conservative Party uses the color blue the New Democratic Party uses
orange the Bloc Québécois also use blue and then the Green Party
of course uses green and you might see if you’re in Canada right now the
Canadians will show which candidate they’re supporting in which party they
support by placing a sign on their front lawn out
out of their house this is very common no each political party will have a
leader and this leader is chosen by the party members to represent the party and
eventually become prime minister if the party wins it’s the leaders job to
formulate the party policy and decide where the party stands on current issues
of the day Justin Trudeau is the leader of the Liberal Party Andrew Sheer is the
leader of the Conservative Party the Jagmeet Singh is the leader of the NDP
party an Elizabeth May is the leader of the Green Party so on the 21st when the
polls close when it’s over the poll workers will count the ballots and the
candidate with the most number of ballots cast for them will win and they
will win the seat in the House of Commons they will represent their riding
in Ottawa now which political party they’re associated with also matters
because the party that has the most candidates present in the House of
Commons will make up the government and their leader will become Prime Minister
now this can happen in a couple different ways in 2015 the Liberal Party
won one hundred and eighty four votes the Conservative Party won 99 the NDP
144 the bloc québécois 110 and the Green Party won one so the Liberals 184 votes
was larger than the sum of all the other parties so they won a majority
government but say this time if the all the other parties have more seats but
the Liberals still have the most than they will win a minority government and
when this happens the different parties have to work together to get things done
now it’s too early to tell how Canadians will load on the 21st a lot of Canadian
news agencies are saying that the Liberals and the Conservatives are
neck-and-neck meaning it’s a very close race we’re not sure who will win but
it’s politics and things can change on almost a daily basis if you’d like to

Clinton foundation || Republican Party of Minnesota forgot to put Donald Trump on Minnesota ballot


The Republican Party of Minnesota finds itself in a pickle.

It’s their fault. Earlier this year at the state Republican convention Duluth, the party picked its ten electoral college voters. The state party was also supposed to choose ten alternate electoral college names. It didn’t. Therein lies the problem.

What could’ve been an in-house mess went public yesterday, when blogger and former Republican Party of Minnesota official Michael Brodkorb noticed that something didn’t look right about the Secretary of State’s sample ballot Donald Trump wasn’t on it. “The sample ballot online will generally lead to what’s on the general election ballot,” Brodkorb tells City Pages. The reason Trump’s name wasn’t coming up on the Minnesota Secretary of State web site was because the Republican Party of Minnesota had not submitted this paperwork, which is due Monday.” He’s right.

By August 29, both major political parties must submit the requisite paperwork to the Minnesota Secretary of State’s office so that their respective presidential candidates appear on the ballot. This information by law must include the presidential candidate’s name as well as that of the vice president, the names of the party’s ten Minnesota presidential electors, and the ten-person list of alternates. According to the RPM bylaws, all 20 electors must be chosen by at a state party convention. The thing that happened back in May.
