As The Political System Melts Down, The Public Wants A "Change"

By Danny Schechter

Author of The Crime Of Our Time


Is It Time For A New "WE Party?"


They seem to be dropping like flies, as the old saying goes. Now, New Jersey Senator Lautenberg has been diagnosed with Cancer. Last week, Senator Bayh said sayonara to the Senate. The week before, Jack Murtha of Pennsylvania died somewhat mysteriously on the operating table with the Navy now investigating.


In a sense, this growing body count is a metaphor for a larger die-off--a death of democracy itself with the Supreme Court giving corporations the status of persons while the political system has been paralyzed by self-serving partisanship in a poisonous cloud of ideological extremism calling itself conservatism (while conserving nothing!).


The followup to the sad spectacle of that wannabe software entrepreneur who flew a plane into an IRS office based on a legitimate grievance with a tax code provision inserted initially to benefit IBM and other big companies that was legitimate.


Sadder, still, was the disclosures that, despite attempts over decades to eliminate the rule by Presidents and members of both parties, nothing was done.


Nothing ever seems to get done.
