  •  Making Real Change (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Though we can make progress by supporting progressive dems like Tasini in their attempts to unseat opportunist corporate hacks, the reality is that it isn't enough. Our corporate oligarchy is firmly in control of the two headed beast and even if we elect a few progressives, they will never be allowed  in the inner circles of power.

    We need to shut this country down and demand real change. We need to demand real elections and multi-party proportional representation for starters. We need to dis-empower capital and make it subservient to public interests.

      -- but your suggestion will fall on deaf ears here right now.  No one is ready for it -- everyone  thinks that they can tweak the machine to get a result that they can live with.  

      A lot more will have to be lost before folks "get it".  Relax, pull up a chair. Wait.  Here, have a drink.  What do you like? Its early in the day for me but a good wine spritzer is always nice.

      ..Don't ask "where are the leaders. WE are the leaders!
