I believe the occupy movement will only grow and continue to work at other levels. I hope protesters who get charged with felonies will fight them, since it takes away their right to vote, and feeds some of the very issues they're fighting that target minorities and such.

On another topic..here's a thought..let's take the radical muslems and the radical islama-phobes....put them all on an island with their guns and let them fight it out...away from the more universally minded and tolerant. My personal view is that real faith, no matter what that faith may be, stands on its own, is stronger than, and has nothing to do with extreme attitudes or actions on either side.

I have a game changer idea!...how about FSTV give 15 minutes to each cadidate each night one at a time, ...that means all the candidates, and all the parties, each one with 15 minutes to tell us what they have done that quaifies them for the job, what they will do if elected, and how they will do it.

One candidate per night, great draw for viewer's! and it would assist in removing money from the election, WE the people could see, and hear each candidate speak, and then...the next round, have them answer questions from the viewers live, no notes! 15 minutes, and answers must be less than 30 seconds!... then the finale one week, before the election, have facts and statements checked for the truth on everything we've heard them say, then...we can decide who to vote for, but the big problem is having another country (Spain) count the votes in this election,this must be against the Constiution, why not go back to paper votes that are counted by the people. Why vote if you can't trust the votes being counted correctly.??

Why the House of Representatives Doesn’t Represent Americans

One of the really weird ironies of politics these days is the huge divergence between what the American people actually want and what the radical right-wingers in Washington actually do. You won’t hear this on Fox So-Called News, but right now the American people are as progressive as they ever have been.

Don’t believe me? Just check the polls.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
Leonardo DiCaprio, actor, producer, and environmental activist
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Never one to shy away from the truth, Thom Hartmann’s collected works are inspiring, wise, and compelling. His work lights the way to a better America."
