As we again celebrated the birth of our nation it occurred to me that we are at an important time in our history as a free people and citizens; it is once again up to us to make sure our government works for our betterment.  As I do a roll call of the important issues we are dealing with in our society:

  • Money in Politics
  • Corporate Personhood
  • 2011 and 2012 N.D.A.A. 
  • Restrictive legislation and gerrymandering attacking voting rights,
  • Drone warfare and surveillance
  • Due process and equal protection being removed by way of legislative acts like the Patriot Act 
  • Legislation and policy specifically attacking women's privacy rights
  • All the recent revelations of the NSA, and
  • The deceptive practices of our media not keeping us fully informed about these and other issues

I find it necessary to remind us on how important it is to be an active activist. Two guests tonight will talk about what inspired them to "do something about it." 

Press [1] For Democracy covers current political news from a transpartisan viewpoint.  In other words, putting the country before the party.  Extra emphasis on Money in Politics issues.
