    Supreme Court vs. Democracy

    in Politics

    Good evening, tomorrow on The Meter, we will cover the two major United States Supreme Court rulings this week: Obamacare and gay marriage. What does the gay marriage ruling mean for the country? Is Christianity now obsolete? In Obamacare the dissenting judges declare democracy is under assault and that the court is legislating from the bench while the majority focuses on the intent of the law rather than the actual language. Also, the Confederate flag is being removed from all aspects of American life. Is this an insult to Southern heritage or is the flag offensive? Please join the intense debate at 9:00 AM. The call in number is 347-308-8933. Your input is essential. w

    Princeton University: US is No Longer a Democracy!

    in Politics Progressive

    Recent study at Princeton determined that the US is no longer has the critical elements necessary to qualify as a democratic republic. No, voting alone just does not do it.


    The US is dominated by a rich and powerful elite which is called an oligarchy.


    So concludes a recent study --  http://dx.doi.org/10.1017/S1537592714001595 


     -- by Princeton University Prof Martin Gilens and Northwestern University Prof Benjamin I Page.


    This is not news, you say. Perhaps, but the two professors have conducted exhaustive research to try to present data-driven support for this conclusion. Here's how they explain it:


    Multivariate analysis indicates that economic elites and organised groups representing business interests have substantial independent impacts on US government policy, while average citizens and mass-based interest groups have little or no independent influence.


    In English: the wealthy few move policy, while the average American has little power.


    In the next two hours your host, Bob Kirkconnell, author of American Heart of Darkness, will explore this startling fact, and the ramifications. Hey, call in and tell us what you think!

    IS DEMOCRACY POSSIBLE? WITH GREG WASSON

    in Politics

    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.

    Take Back America for the People is an educational nonprofit whose mission is to explain the true costs of corporate control of the US government.
