YES! They’re too powerful & we’re all getting screwed.
YES! Just like Reagan did with the banks in the 1980s.

"Democrasy depends on an informed electorate." Don't remember which one of the Founding Fathers said that (or almost that), but it seems to have been =deliberately= 'forgotten' a while back. Why does the general public have no clue what's going on, or believe 'fairy tales' that any -thinking- person would outright laugh at? Because they're being selectively fed -only- what the corporations want people to know .. and steadfastly denied access to information that might make the public get all 'uppity'. Luckily, I speak a number of languages besides English, so I can find out what else is going on and/or what another view of a situation is .. .. but far too many 'gud Amaircuns' can barely speak/read =English=!! And the American media, not just Faux News, hasn't done a damn thing to help matters, at all!

Until the masses, get out the vote, there will be no movement, just like today's political scheming.

It is one mans doing, thats fueling the consolidation, Michael Powell, Gen. Powell's son., and the overall corruption of our media, for the 1%.

low voting is strangling this countries citizens, more and more.

From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen and The Impossible Will Take a Little While
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."
