A retired MBA, I am a former corporate ideologue, former 3rd party advocate and current curmudgeon. While a continued supporter of a 3rd party, I have concluded their efficacy cannot be demonstrated until our form of Government is changed to facilitate proportional representation. This will require an Amendment to the Constitution which Congress will not support.

I am skeptical of our democratic republic's turn to plutocracy as its form of governance. As a member of Convention USA, I support an Article V States Convention for the purpose of Amendment considerations beyond the influence of Congress.

My interests include ending our Government's policies of war and empire, restoration of monetary, fiscal, and trade policy sanity, reversing the income inequality trend, and improving social justice, the seven major defects of modern day America.

On these concerns and others, I am an open book; reference OpEdNews - Articles - Author's Page for Harold Hellickson

There's Income --- Then There's Income Inequality: A New Standard for Banana Republics in the Making The U.S. is lacking in leadership of both economic and non-economic factors. Corporations own both Congress and the Administration. Most U.S citizens are wage/salary slaves for the Corporate Plantation. With global warming and the continuation of social and economic trends combined with spineless leadership for the people, the U.S. is on the verge of establishing new standards for a true Banana Republic.

--- America -- A Land of Myths, A Path to Perdition Myths, legends, and paradigm are as endemic to the human specie as are fish to water. Are the great strengths of the American economic model, its small business strength and opportunities, the American dream, even democracy itself fact or fiction? Do Americans recognize reality or do Americans live in a land of myths, legends, and paradigms as an ostrich with its head in the sand?

How long have we got? Ours is "an age of corporate dominion"- over citizens in a system the citizenry are incapable of changing. Will the system collapse and change civilization as we know it anyway? If not, why is the combat ready 5th Army now permanently assigned to Homeland Security's FEMA? Why is FEMA having Halliburton building the internment camps?

Economic Hodgepodge - The Plight of 70% of American Families. Following my July 26th article, "Income and Net Worth Inequality" a commenter indicated he was in pursuit of additional information. I promised him that I would review my files and send him what I could find. I did. He suggested it be submitted as article for a wider audience. This is it with only a slight modification.

The Company Store or Theft by Any Means That the rich have prospered from the labor of others is not news. Neither are the varied strategies by which the rich have continued to grow income and wealth inequality. What would be news is that the directional trend of income and wealth inequality were reversed. But will it? If so, how?

America's Axis of Evil There is an Axis of Evil in this country than maintains control of the many for the enrichment of the few. This Axis of Evil consist of the Democrat Party, the Republican Party, and the Corporate Elite that control both parties. It cannot be defeated by ballot; a sixth column is needed.

Two Decades of Political Racketeering The biggest protection racket in this country is not run by organized crime, not by Wall Street, not by Congress. The biggest protection racket in this country is run by the Presidential Debate Commission (PDC), a private corporation formed in 1987 by the Democrat and Republican Parties.

Where is the Light at the End of the Tunnel? Financial losses suffered in this economic crisis are staggering. These losses are approaching the annual Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the entire world. The rosy prediction that we will turn the corner on this recession this coming September is about as likely as is the as a complete economic collapse; severe dollar devaluation, and hyperinflation.

Two Strikes against Obamanomics Can President Obama's plan for economic and social reform succeed with two strikes against it? The first strike is the governing elites controlled Congress albeit with a Democrat majority. The second strike is his economic team consisting of leftover, or taught by, former President Clinton's team of Democrats. With two strikes against him, will he hit a homer or strike out?

Income Distribution: Does It Really Matter Until or unless the low to middle class families in this country regain the ability to, and actually do, achieve significantly increased real income, our current economic quagmire will look better than any we may find in the future. Nothing in the current stimulus package(s) increases the value of non-executive labor upon which the vast majority depend. Does this not portend to a long and deepening recession?

Patterns: Evolution from New Ideas to Profound Human Impact In this, the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Robert Darwin, it is timely to consider those few individuals that set in motion truly new understandings of our place in the universe. There are but a few handfuls of individuals in all of history whose thinking was so profoundly original that each provided an absolutely new way of thinking for all who followed.

Economic Tyranny and How To End It For more than three decades the super-wealthy elite have maintained their dominion over ninety-eight percent of the populace through control of government. Insistence on specific legislative actions would level the playing field and result in economic and social justice.

Another Reason to Vote Third Party For 90 percent of Americans, wealth serves two functions. Firstly it assures our representative democracy will not be representative of the people; that we, as a plutocracy, will be governed by the wealthy. Secondly it enables philanthropy to exist. Neither serves the best interests of society.

So you're proud to be an American So your proud to be an American, right? When Michelle Obama said she was "proud of my country" she had to be honoring the civil rights progress, from the time of her birth in 1964 to now, that which facilitated her husbands political ascendancy? When she said "for the first time in my adult life" she had to be referring to some of our other accomplishments. Lets look at some of our accomplishments both home and abroad.

Who's Running the Show: Who's Got All the Marbles Are "we the people" being deceived? Has "for the people" been forgotten by those in high public office? How biased is our representative democracy? Are we not a plutocracy? Would a third party make a difference?
