    Not on the assessment of Taabbi's advise but on the movement never gaining ground because of what I call blatant bribery.

    But it seems so embedded, many Americans have become convinced that buying politicians falls under the First Amendment right of freedom of speech.  

    The first stepping stone to reality should be those places where the publicly subsidized are using taxpayer money to influence government, subsidized corn lobbies, pharmaceutical corporations collecting government grants, oil companies and their tax breaks, the taxpayer supported military industrial complex and banks that took bailout money.

    Perhaps that step getting some time in the national debate could lead somewhere but where it seems to be going now with the general population is nowhere.
