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?

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:
"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 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."
