Ralph Nader who has been consistently ignored or dismissed from the corporate media and blamed for his independent approaches needs to be considered a leader in this effort. I still hear stupid Democrats who profess to be "liberals" and don't have a clue as to what really happened in Florida in the election of 2000 talking about this and blaming him for Bush's election. It is disgusting what ignorance they project. They are as bad as Tea Party ignoramuses who were co-opted by the corporatists in 2010.
What I am suggesting is that we get started NOW and that some national leaders with some reputation step forward and help lead this effort rather than just continue to talk about it and wringing our hands. Some names that come to mind are Ralph Nader, Chris Hedges, Tom Hartman, Glen Greenwald, Amy Goodman, Naomi Klein, Rob Kall, Glen Ford, Jill Stein, Rocky Anderson, Dennis Kucinich, Russ Feingold, Alan Grayson, etc. and others that I named in my blog listed above.
One final comment here: My "dream" of a possible solution to this dilemma is that we have a mass protest in Washington with "only" one percent of Americans or 3 million people. Wouldn't it be ironic to see one percent of the population actually represent the other 99% by "voting" with their feet? We would protest this totally incompetent, insensitive and non compassionate behavior toward the citizenry. It would scare the hell out of those in Washington in all branches of government. It's time to say "Let's Roll!" I will continue to do what I can from Biloxi, MS and urge others to do likewise.
