    When are we, as a society, going to stop belaboring the “rights” of singular classes and particular groups and start the march for the advancement of ALL PEOPLE. Self interest are exactly that-One’s will to preserve themselves and only themselves.

    I came across this interesting article about the American Election from an Australian’s perspective. The writer seems to like all the candidates but I get the impression she is most sympathetic to Hillary Clinton. She feels that Hillary is facing gender bias and the glass ceiling. You can find the article here: American Election Coverage.
