    It's 2015, and the march towards the emancipation of the American working class continues. The Election Boycott Advocates believe that the fight to emancipate American workers starts with boycotting the election system all together, as workers cannot work within  a system designed to perserve the status quo. 2015 will only further illustrate that the American working class has no stake in any election whatsover, as the billionaires have chosen their candidates (all of whom have been around political/capitalist institutes for life) to represent their interests and serve their needs. As the oppression of capitalism  continues to get worse, American workers will have no choice but to hit the street and bring democracy to an otherwise undemocratic system.


    Join the Election Boycott Advocates on Carson's Corner as they try to elevate the consciousness by spreading non compliance. We will discuss the very issues that the corporate media does not want you to hear. For example, is there an alternative to capitalism, such as a radical form of social democracy, that can produce a more equal society? From a boycotters' perspective, what will 2015 mean?

    On the last Carson's Corner on 2014, the Election Boycott Advocates welcome Jill Dalton to the show to discuss the biggest political events of 2014. Dalton, who is the author of the eBook, "Is It Fascism Yet ?", has been writing for non-corporate media outlets, such as Dandelion Salad, OpEdNews, RSN, NationofChange, for many years. Jill has been one of the few reporters who have questioned whether or not voting really matters in America.


    Will 2015 be a year marked by the billionaire ruling class or will the workers continue to rise up in the face of the deteriorating conditions of capitalism?  Will elections and the state continue to lose legitimacy in the eyes of the working class? Tune in to hear a discussion you will hear few places elsewhere.


    Here is Jill Dalton’s bio: Jill Dalton is a writer/actress/army brat/activist/truth teller. She can be seen in and consulted for William Hurt on the HBO film, Too Big To Fail, about the global financial meltdown. Her articles have appeared @ Dandelion Salad, OpEdNews, RSN, NationofChange.

    in Business

    On the heels of the Ferguson verdict this is the hot debate in the Black Community.  Black Friday is one of the biggest shopping days of the year and can make or break many retailers.  In protest many Black consumers have decided to boycott Black Friday to show the power of the Black Dollar.  I have expressed my opinion here Why I do NOT think Blacks should boycott Black Friday, but I want to hear from you.  Let's talk about it.

    Carson's Corner: The Election Boycott Advocates.

    in Politics Progressive

    Almost another year in the books, and the oppression of the American worker continues to get worse. From phony billionaire-owned elections, a us-backed fascist coup in Ukraine, to an out-of-control militarized police force that seeks to perserve the privilege of the ruling class, the workers in America have been forced to engage in non-compliance. Non-compliance already exists in our society in the form of the non-voter. However, we are starting to see the beginnings of a mass response from the oppressed.


    Join the Election Boycott Advocates as they recap some of the year's events, as well what we in the working class have to look forward in 2015.

    Carson's Corner: The Election Boycott Advocates.

    in Politics Progressive

    The Election Boycott Advocates welcome a very special guest to the show. Deputy Editor at the Greanville Post, Alya Rea, joins the show to discuss the relationship between the United States, Russia and Ukraine.


    The Following is Rea's bio from the Greanville Post:


    Alevtina Rea is a researcher, analyst and writer and a strong supporter of social justice and human rights. For 7 years (2005 – 2012), she worked as an assistant editor with CounterPunch, a leading left political journal in the Anglophone world that exemplifies, along with The Greanville Post and a small cluster of sites, what an oppositional press should be like. She believes that “the role of the media is to educate, inform and shed light where there is none” in order to counter state-sponsored propaganda. Given the appalling criminality and atrocities committed by Western imperialism around the world, she believes that Russia—by opposing such power, and by her growing cooperation with Latin American and Asian countries— offers a new hope to humanity. Ms. Rea is also a contributing author to CounterPunch, Cyrano’s Journal Today, Uncommon Thought Journal,  and the International Journal of Baudrillard Studies. She can be reached at rea.alya@gmail.com.

    Carson's Corner: The Election Boycott Advocates.

    in Politics Progressive

    It's Sunday, and it's time for the Election Boycott Advocates to appear on Carson's Corner. Last week after a great discussion on the origins of socialism and social democracies, the Election Boycott Advocates welcome Harry Cason, member/supporter of the Zeitgeist Movement to the show. We will discuss our vision for the future of America and the current issues that face working class Americans- or better yet, the very system that oppresses all of us. How do we overturn that system? What do we put in its place? We will attempt to answer all these questions and more.

    Carson's Corner Election Boycott Advocates.

    in Politics Progressive

    On this edition of Carson's Corner, the Election Boycott Advocates welcome Harry Cason of the Zeitgeist Movement to the program to discuss how to create a new sustainable world. The working class undoubtedly faces many challenges- change is easier said than done. However, there are steps that we can take to overcome the ruling class. Harry Cason believes that we have to sell everyone a program that contains enormous benefits to everyone. Bob Carson believes we have to reevaluate the way we look at the market system and move beyond capitalism. Capitalism in its current ( and arguably any form) is not designed to address human needs, and therefore continuing capitalism will only further increase the pain of the working class. This consciousness spurred on by the miserable conditions of the working class will lead to a revolution. Christopher Driscoll believes that we need to pull out the rug from the ruling class- the rug of legitimacy- and establish worker owned factories and workplaces. Thomas Baldwin believes a new set of principles will emerge from a value system. All believe that the ballot box is no ride to power for the working class, so what do we do? What course of action should we take? Tune into Carson's Corner to hear this very unique discussion that you will hear few places elsewhere.

    The Election Boycott Advocates on Carson's Corner.

    The Election Boycott Advocates welcome one of their own to the show, Christopher Alan Driscoll. Driscoll, who was Ralph Nader's media director for his three presidential campaigns, has a firm grasp on the origins of socialism that he will discuss. EBA members Bob Carson and Thomas Baldwin want to explore how to arrive at socialism here in the U.S. with Christopher.  We want to know how we create a more equitable and sustainable society that is owned by the workers.


    Plus, in hour two, we'll delve into all things Ferguson.

    Carson's Corner: The Election Boycott Advocates!!

    in Politics Progressive

    Fresh off of the huge article in the Greanville Post, the Election Boycott Advocates are back on Carson's Corner for another 2-hour lively debate/discussion. Last week, much of the discussion during the first hour centered around whether 3rd parties can produce meaningful results in the system, and the idea that the Election Boycott Advocates are doing nothing to change the system. First, as was pointed out by cohost Chris Driscoll, working class 3rd parties have had little success in electing anything other than a handful of people. Part of the reason our voter turnout is so low in America, is that people realize they don't have a real choice in elections. Unlike in other countries that have a much higher turnout, there are no working class parties in America. In fact, not only is there no working class party, as Noam Chomsky points out, the term "working class" is taboo among the ruling class. The working class in America is suffering a class-based assault that cannot be discussed in the corporate media.


    As for the idea that the Election Boycott Advocates are not doing anything to change the system, Thomas Baldwin notes, the group is putting out statements that seek to explain why our system is so corrupt and how participating in the system will not lead to favorable results. Such statements have been picked up by websites, including the Greanville Post, which has the Democratic Party nervous. Parties, institutions, and vested individuals have a lot to lose by tearing down the system-we the working class people do not. The billionaires have choices- we do not.
