In our country, the mechanisms of democratic process have ALWAYS been under attack by the Few. A lot of people fought long and hard for the right of all citizens to voice their mind at the polls - and a lot have died in the struggle. Today, we have to fight those battles all over again. The one thing we can't do, must not do is NOT VOTE. But beyond that, we've got to work together to stop the robbery that today's Few, from SCOTUS on down, are busy commiting. New America Media is a leader in this struggle; that's why I'm supporting them.
