How Deep Is the Rot In the Republic Party? What Will It Take To Break the Billionaire Greed Hold and Recover?

Thom plus logo From Trump's coverups to climate change to inequality to pushing a coup in Venezuela. What we're seeing right now is the peak moment of the coup committed by the billionaire class. Billionaire Trump and billionaire Murdoch and the Kochs and Adelson have completely taken over the GOP from federal to local levels, leading to more poison, more poverty, and an entirely corrupt government from elected office to the Supreme Court and the White House.

What will it take and how long will it take to break what Jefferson called "rule by the rich" and restore some semblance of democracy to America, or are we too far gone?

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
David C. Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World and Agenda for A New Economy
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
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
