    if we don't elect the right people we will need even more of these watch dogs/fire fighters.

    I think our more basic need ...our first priority is to elect staunchly non corporate people (politicians who are not on the corporate lobbyist dole).  Else we will never solve the problem and will always be fighting the corporate fires.    We need to get the corporate power out of our government NOW.  We need to elect people who will reinstate regulations and limit corporate greed and bring back the fairness doctrine and create transparency in government like Obama is intent upon.  

    Obviously there is a need for both approaches as long as the fires have brush & shrubs (not sure if a pun is intended here) to feed upon;  As long as lobbyists buy our politicians.  

    •  Polticians don't change the nature of the dialog (1+ / 0-)

      They mainly operate within existing frames, so while I fully agree that we need non-corporate politicians that alone is not enough.

      Both - good politicians and good organizations to promote ideas, change the national dialog, etc., are essential.
