There are plenty of things you can do in American society that are legal but I choose not to do because of my values, ethics and general sense of right and wrong.

The same principle applies to our Politicians – just because something is legal doesn’t mean you have to do it.

Yet, Both Democrats’ and Republicans’ behavior flourished in the wrong direction when the supreme court allowed it. Our current Kleptocracy is as much Obama’s fault as it is John Roberts’.

Hartmann is wrong. This is not necessarily the 1920s. Today, there will be no revolution back to a just American society by relying on our system of governance that is broken unlike it has been at any other time in history. To advocate the People doing (like Hartmann does so many many times and many different ways) is to serve the establishment's interest in keeping the masses in line with the system(s) and option(s) the establishment has rigged for them. This is partly why the Occupy protests are so refreshing and hopeful.

The People need change in the system before they can expect different results from that system. Until then,...well, go outside the system.
