Yes! Every single poll shows the vast majority of American agree with Warren Buffett.
No! Republicans in Congress who’ve signed Grover Norquist’s anti-tax pledge will still prevail.

I wish we couldhave made a campaign of such sincere rich ones who are honest enough to support such tax reforms. Doing so will leave even less room for shameless republicans representing the corporate lobbyists.

Who died and made Grover 'silver polaroid in his mouth' Norquist the boss? He's not even an elected official. Why does his anti-tax pledge carry any weight? It's a pledge, not a law, and needs to be kicked to the curb so we can fix what's ailing this country: Lack of revenue!

The only solution is for people to start demonstrating their anger and frustration in every town in the USA and then posting the demo's on youtube.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. 2012

So the bumper sticker on my car says.... Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. 2012
Launch your campaign. Bobby. Win the West.
I think he can 20 States plus D.C. .

Plus, I'll bet he could get backing from many key voices including:

Talk radio -

Thom Hartmann (DC)
Ed Schultz (NYC)

Mike Pappintonio (FL)
Norman Goldman (LAX)
Randi Rhodes (FL)
Lawrence O'Donnel (LA)
Ron Reagan, Jr. (SEA)
Van Jones


Pat Brown (CA)
Andrew Cuomo (NY)
Kitzhaber (OR)

Patrick (MA)


Los Angeles
San Francisco

Adam Green PCCC
Howard Dean DFA

Hey, it's worth a try early on especially as we enter the beginning stages of the campaign season. At least we know corporate media and DC Beltway media will stay close to the RFK, Jr message. That's critical because in most major cities especially along the Eastern seaboard, Progressive Talk Radio is virtually silent.

The members of Congress don't care what Warren Buffett says, because he hardly invests any money in the purchasing of politicians.

Buffet does do some dollar cost averaging value investing, in Harry Reid (D)... a cheaply purchased penny stock with exceptionally high dividends.

We democrats are woosies of the first degree. Letting the repugnicans have their way over and over, giving in to their bullying, we are failing miserably at leading this country to a better future. It saddens me to no end.

The America I Knew Has Almost Disappeared

Like an alcoholic family that won't discuss alcoholism (and proving Don Quixote's warning to never mention rope in the home of a man who's been hanged), far too many Americans are unwilling to acknowledge or even discuss the ongoing collapse of democracy in the United States.

From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a creative thinker and committed small-d democrat. He has dealt with a wide range of topics throughout his life, and this book provides an excellent cross section. The Thom Hartmann Reader will make people both angry and motivated to act."
Dean Baker, economist and author of Plunder and Blunder, False Profits, and Taking Economics Seriously
