Here's what we're talking about today on Leid Stories.

Just yesterday on Leid Stories, presidential candidate Joe Biden came in for much criticism for continuing his national campaign for the nation's top job without giving voters a comprehensive idea of what a Biden administration wants to accomplish. 

Well, today Biden rolls out what he calls a "revolutionary" agenda. 

We discuss what some of its priorities should be.

Especially now, when there is climate is a heightened awareness of the power of people to create the change they want, it is vitally important to understand the inherent nature of the systems they're up against.

After 244 Years of Independence, What's Your Version of Being 'American'?

On July 4, the nation commemorates 244 years of independence from Britain and its official beginnings as a new, free nation. 

In many parts of the world, achieving national independence is cause for great celebration. But in the United States and its territories, well-choreographed, razzle-dazzle celebrations mock the truth of how this nation, and our national identity, came to be--and  in so many ways, still is.

Leid Stories asks: What's your version of what it means to be American?

Are You Ready for A Proxy President?

As they approach the home stretch of the 2020 presidential race, the Democratic and Republican parties and their candidates apparently have struck a deal: The subject of fitness for office is off limits.

Trump, 74, won't have to explain his erratic and bizarre behavior and policies, and Joe Biden, 77, avoids having to deny that his own advisers worry he's in cognitive decline.

EIther way, whoever wins the election will come with a lot of mental-health baggage, which raises the question: In that event, who actually will be president -- the winning candidate himself or several unseen "advisers?" Are we comfortable with that -- president by proxy?
