Coffee Party USA is pleased to offer as its September 2015 Book Club selection Healing the Heart of Democracy: The Courage to Create a Politics Worthy of the Human Spirit by Parker Palmer. We encourage everyone to read this very important book and then join us for a special Coffee Party Blogtalkradio conversation with Parker Palmer on Wednesday, September 30 at 8:30 PM Eastern. Healing the Heart of Democracy is an eloquent and empowering call for "We the People" to reclaim our democracy. This timely, courageous and practical work—intensely personal as well as political—is not about them, "those people" in Washington D.C., or in our state capitals, on whom we blame our political problems. It's about us, "We the People," and what we can do in everyday settings like families, neighborhoods, classrooms, congregations and workplaces to resist divide-and-conquer politics and restore a government "of the people, by the people, for the people." Publishers Weekly, in a Starred Review, said "This beautifully written book deserves a wide audience that will benefit from discussing it." Here at Coffee Party, we want you to have the opportunity to do just that! Click here to buy the book on Amazon and support Coffee Party USA at the same time: Healing the Heart of Democracy: The Courage to Create a Politics Worthy of the Human Spirit. PARKER J. PALMER is a writer, teacher and activist and the founder and senior partner of the Center for Courage & Renewal. He holds a Ph.D. in sociology from the University of California at Berkeley, as well as eleven honorary doctorates, two Distinguished Achievement Awards from the National Educational Press Association, and an Award of Excellence from the Associated Church Press. So read this wonderful book and join us on Wednesday, September 30 at 8:30 PM Eastern with a conversation with Parker Palmer.

Contary to popular opinion, the US Constitution not only failed to produce a democracy but did not even create a representative democracy. In addition to the exclusion of women, the propertyless, slaves and indentured servants from the right to vote, the original Constitution had built-in protections against democracy, which was just as now was considered then by some to be "tryanny of the majority."
The failure to educate our children about the genuine history of the US and the systematic brainwashing to convince them we live in a democracy has obscured the fact that we could have a much more representative government if we would give up worship of the Founders and abandon the ridiculous notion of "original intent" that suggests the constitution was written on stone tablets and handed down by God.
In this episode, Greg Wasson of Committee for Petition Rights in Oregon discusses how we can create a more representative government and the pros and cons of various ideas.
This show will be rebroadcast on April 11 at 9 AM PST/ 12 PM EST on the Star Com Radio Network.

"How do youth engage in politics?"
Find out as we speak to two young activists.
Justin Jones, currently 21 years of age, became engaged in politics at the age of 14 and still advocates for socialist causes and Black Lives Matter. He will discuss his thoughts on the current election cycle and how it plays into the class struggle, and how to liberate one's views from that dominated by the corporate run media.
Next we will have Michaelangelo Hamilton, a 15 year old high school student at McArthur High in Hollywood, Florida, who has been active with Senator Bernie Sanders presidential campaign and with the Progressive Democrats of America. He will discuss what made him political aware at his age and his drive for progressive politics.
Mitchell’s guest today is Sam Daley-Harris, founder of RESULTS and author of Reclaiming Our Democracy..
In 1995 Daley-Harris initiated the Microcredit Summit Campaign which surpassed its initial goal of reaching 100 million of the world’s poorest families with microloans in 2007. Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Muhammad Yunus said: “…no other organization has been as critical a partner in seeing to it that microcredit is used as a tool to eradicate poverty and empower women than RESULTS and the Microcredit Summit Campaign.”Daley-Harris is author of Reclaiming Our Democracy: Healing the Break Between People and Government, which, according to President Jimmy Carter “provides a road map for global involvement in planning a better future.
Sam was a guest on A Better World Radio some time back discussing his work with and connected to Micro-Credit and Dr. Yunus.Sam will be discussing his effective work on reclaiming Democracy on a grass-roots level with Mitchell.
Coffee Party USA is proud to be a partner organization on the $64,000 Democracy For All Video Challenge – a contest seeking to tap into the creative potential of Americans of all political stripes with short, powerful videos in support of the Democracy For All Amendment to get big money out of politics.
The goal is two-fold: to encourage activists and filmmakers, both brand-new and experienced, to create videos highlighting the need for money in politics reform and to use those videos to inspire action in support of the Democracy For All Amendment.
The Democracy for All amendment restores the ability of Congress and state legislatures to regulate the raising and spending of money in elections. It overturns misguided Supreme Court decisions that threaten the integrity of our democracy. This has allowed wealthy and powerful corporations and individuals to purchase outsized influence in our political process.
LWL guest Rio Tazewell will tell us about the Democracy for All Amendment and $65K Democracy for All Video Contest. You may have seen Rio in his video promotion for the contest!
You will find even more information on this subject on the Lunch with Louden Facebook page.
