    However, I feel the stirrings of thousands of feet that will not be stopped.

    I will not be dissuade by arguments of powerlessness.

    •  you shouldn't (3+ / 0-)

      but neither should you be placated by false empowerment.

        When that government fails to work for the people, the people have the right--nay the obligation--to change that.

        On the federal level or even the state that is an almost impossible task. However, on the local level hundreds of communities across the US are writing initiatives which place people's rights over corporations. We must force democracy up through the system.

        Not an easy thing but entirely doable as over 150 communities have already proved.
