welshTerrier2 believes all citizens must focus on restoring power to the people. Corporations control our agenda. They promote war. They export our jobs to the lowest bidder. They pollute our air and water. They promote laws to benefit their greedy shareholders at our expense. They control the puppet politicians through their campaign contributions. They control the mainstream media.

The dual disasters of global warming and a bankrupt national Treasury demand rapid, radical change. It's hard to envision either of the major parties advocating anything but politically safe policies. To continue supporting them in these times of crisis is nothing short of treasonous.

I should also provide a few details about the cost of US militarism. Our current military budget exceeds $1.1 trillion. Divide that by 308 million Americans and each and every one of us is chipping in roughly $3667 every year. Taken over a lifetime, that's more than $250,000 per person. For a family of four, the price exceeds $1 million! No wonder Americans are having trouble paying for college, funding public education, repairing our aging infrastructure, paying for quality health care and providing for a secure retirement. It's military madness and it has to stop.

Dean of the Disenfranchised Democrats?
Howard Dean's been very visible on TV the last month or two. Maybe it's all about hyping his new book or maybe it's something more. While Chairman of the DNC, Dean was always "true blue". He was always "on message". Recently, however, gaps have appeared between Dean's health care reform ideas and those being floated by a variety of Democrats including Obama. Are these just minor policy differences or could the gap widen?

Dean, Democrats and the Disenfranchised
(1 comments) Could Obama get a challenge from the left in 2012? Everyone knows third parties are not viable ... or, are they? The national health care debate has highlighted some very deep rifts in the Democratic Party. Given a "perfect storm", America's political landscape could be in for some very radical realignments in the very near future.
