That still leaves millions of true progressives, independents and just plain fed-up Americans, especially working- and middle-class Americans that feel the pain of an unjust economy poisoned by rising economic inequality.
The only way to win this war is to gather strength through unifying larges numbers of people behind a positive strategy. As to what we must do strategically, here is an overview of what is in my new book Delusional Democracy:
1. To counter our MISrepresentative government corrupted by money we must institute at all levels of government the Clean Money/Clean Elections approach to financing campaigns.
2. To counter ineffective MISrepresentative government we must advance various forms of direct democracy, for example citizen-driven ballot initiatives and measures at every level of government.
3. To attack the stranglehold of the two-party duopoly we must enact a number of electoral reforms and other actions that open the political arena to third parties.
4. To compel politicians and even some economic elites to respect the public interest and also reverse toxic economic inequality we the people must convert consumer power into political power.
I am trying to keep things simple for this venue. Details on these strategies are in my book as is a statistical analysis that presents a compelling case why Americans that really want major changes not bullshit cosmetic and incremental changes can easily elect a third-party president.
