America is in deep trouble. I believe many or most Americans have lost hope. We must wake up the people who think they are being represented, when in reality they are being played. 
Who are the people who need to wake up the most in the US?

The answer is bi-partisan-- both the Democrats and the Republicans. They really think there's a difference. 
Do you? 
Sure, both parties grab their constituents on wedge issues. But the big issues-- the takeover of the US by corporations, the ceding of power by the legislative branch to the executive and Judiciary, the privatization of the commons, the CORPORATE globalization that is creating a one world corporate order-- those are the ways that the two parties work together, eroding the future of American democracy and freedom, eroding the middle class. 
If you're a Democrat, please look beyond the wedge issues-- gay and minority and women's rights. Yes, they are important rights-- and they dribble a little bit to keep you in line. But there's so much more these corporatist Democrats-- and 95% of them are-- should be doing. 
We need 60 independent Bernie Sanders in the senate. We need 220 Graysons and Ellisons in the house, and even some Ron Pauls (I know, progressives don't like him, but as far as Republicans go, he's quantum steps ahead of the neocons and troglodyte teapartiers.)
