This is a tough call. I think we all want the people to win out over the money and the nonsense. I would feel better if there were some real penalties for what seems obviously illegal. Looks like the ballot trasher in Florida is being made a fall guy while the top dogs are laughing all the way to the bank with their share of donations.

An interesting question ( Breaking the Set ) was presented about past campaigns where the actual tallies showed democrats had won in past presidential elections, why didn't the actual winners step up and stand up and make some noise about it? A better question, will we the people stand up?

Another good point w/ Bernie matter who wins, we have to start the day after the elections, keep working to get progressives in office. Keep standing up to Wall St. and injustice.

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."
Van Jones, cofounder of and author of The Green Collar Economy
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
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."
