SORT BY Relevancy
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.

Another Monday...snow on the ground...politics in the air. America has been called "the greatest example of democracy in the world." One man, one vote!!! Canadians fashion their government after the people of Great Britain without the monarchy. After all, Canada was once part of Great Britain. Israel, like Canada and Great Britain is a Parliamentarian form of government. When the party in power loses its popularity, the opposing party may call for a "vote of confidence." The result are new elections. However, in the United States, we elect a leader, the President, for a four year term. He or she may serve by the will of the people for two terms, eight years, at which time new candidates may run for the elected office. American government is an example of the Roman form of democracy or a Republic. Let's get the discussion moving. Call us at 646-595-3275.

The matter sometimes referred to as the 'Race' problem is the original, basic initial unfinished business among people of the known universe. To eliminate any major problem among people we must first eliminate the problem of Functional Racism which is White Supremacy. Not all white people. The White men, women and children who practice and promote mistreating Black and all non-white people because of greed and this thing called 'Race'-a political strategy.

"The democraticaspiration is no mere recent phase in human history...it was written in Magna Carta." - Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 1941 Inaugural Address
Stephen Smith will be joining us "In the Pickle Barrel" to help us understand the ancestor of the American Democratic Experiment. Although Magna Carta was not perfect (what really is?), it set in motion a stream of changes that were the basis of the Constitution of the United States of America.

Heidi Boghosian talks about government surveillance, corporate power and public resistance with Robert Scheer. Heidi Boghosian is Executive Director of the National Lawyers Guild. Robert Scheer is Editor-in-Chief of Truthdig.
"Heidi Boghosian's Spying on Democracy is the answer to the question, 'if you're not doing anything wrong, why should you care if someone's watching you?'" ~ Michael German, Senior Policy Counsel, ACLU and former FBI agent
Michael German says that "this unrestrained spying is inevitably used to suppress the most essential tools of democracy: the press, political activists, civil rights advocates and conscientious insiders who blow the whistle on corporate malfeasance and government abuse."
Heidi adds, “If the trend is permitted to continue, we will soon live in a society where nothing is confidential, no information is really secure, and our civil liberties are under constant surveillance and control.”
