Honestly I think that Citizen's United is going to win Romney the presidency and a repub majority in the senate. They will pass the Paul Ryan budget and.......scenes like this in Anaheim are going to become an everyday event all over the country. I hope that I am wrong, but I think the CU decision was huge. But in the long run it may be the necessary medicine for those of us that have been disenfranchised by the system to be desperate enough to put together some serious opposition to the present status quo. If that's what it takes to move quicker towards a more evolved system of democratic socialism, than so be it. Just my two cents.

Thanks for all you do Thom, Lois, and company

I couldn't agree with jdjay more! This country has never had Health Care, but we have had our fill of sick care for profit and not even that if you are poor. This is a money grubbing corrupt system that is anti-christian as you can get. Yes, there will be one heck of ANOTHER civil war in this country and I hope that Democratic Socialism and REAL CHRISTIANITY takes over and we never hear of the Republican Party ever again in ANY context! Medicare for ALL!! The rest of the industrialised western countries enjoy real HEALTH CARE! We need to break the too big to fail banks apart into much smaller banks that actually serve all the people of America and not just the wealthy. Bring back the Glass Steigle Act!!

You better believe it! Especially, given the way Obama and other authorities turned a deaf ear to the OWS movement.

Bernie Sanders Could be the Next FDR

Tuesday night, I appeared on the Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell to talk about Elizabeth Warren, the rise of progressives within the Democratic Party, and what this means for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign.

At one point in our discussion, the conversation turned to whether Bernie represents the closest thing to an Elizabeth Warren candidacy.

From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From Screwed:
"The powers that be are running roughshod over the powers that OUGHT to be. Hartmann tells us what went wrong — and what you and I can do to help set American right again."
Jim Hightower, National Radio Commentator, Writer, Public Speaker, and author of the bestselling Thieves in High Places
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
