SORT BY Relevancy
All across America The People are using the 5th Anniversary of the Citizens United decision as a call to action.
Money-as-speech and corporations-as-citizens are constructs that supress rather than empower you and me.
We will talk to organizers about their rallies and marches in Washington, DC and San Francisco, CA.
And, we would like to hear from you about how you plan to mark the day.

Congress is broken, and it cannot fix itself. If we begin with that basic fact, it seems clear: Our Republic can only be saved by We, the People.
Tonight on The Middle Ground, we'll talk to a team of activists lead by Coffee Party founding member Ryan Clayton about why they believe a Constituional Amendment to overturn Citizens United is the best path forward. As we speak, Lawrence Lessig is drafting the language to be introduced in state legislatures across the United States, calling for an Article 5 Convention to address the issue of money in politics.
Current law, as decreed by the Supreme Court in the 2010 "Citizens United" decision, calls for unlimited spending by multi-national corporations to influence our elections, and thereby the laws we live by in the United States of America. The Court has said they would welcome disclosure laws, but Congress is too divided to enact such laws, in part due to cynical hyper-partisanship, in part due to the fact that members of Congress from both parties are reluctant to change a system that put them in power. And yet, so many in Congress say they feel like hostages to fundraising. What can we do to rescue them from this corruption? Keep pressing for disclosure laws? Wait until the next election and "throw the bums out?" Or, if the problem is the corrupt system, and not the well-meaning individuals we send to Washington, perhaps our guests are right in saying a Constitutional Amendment is the only way to free the elected, and save the Republic.
Presented by Coffee Party USA, "The Middle Ground" covers a variety of topics with a trans-partisan approach with an eye to finding the place where the two major political parties share that 'middle ground.' Co-hosted by award-winning filmmaker Eric Byler (center-left perspective) and political author Michael Charney (center-right perspective).
Guests: Dawn Wildman, co-founder of CURE, Citizens United for Responsible Education.
Alice Linahan of Voices Empower will also join us.
We will discuss the group's mission and projects.

MA State Sen. James Eldridge is beyond disappointed at the Supremes' Citizens United ruling. He's beyond mad. He's at doing things to correct it. He joins us to speak about three legislative tacks he's taking — more disclosure for political contributions, shareholder notification of political ads, and a call for Congress to send a Constitutional amendment to states for ratification declaring free speech for people and not corporations.
BLOG TALK RADIO went down right before our show was to begin. We started half an hour late, which means there is radio silence. We will reschedule with our guest, Prof. Irving Joyner.
Since the 2008 election, the Supreme Court has issued two mammoth decrees that impact our democracy. On Jan. 21, 2010, Citizens United radically expanded the influence of money on elections, and today's 5-4 decision to undermine The Voting Rights Act of 1965 will radically curtail the influence of People on elections. Tonight on the Middle Ground, we'll talk about what happens next.
The Moral Monday protests in North Carolina provide a glimpse of what could spread throughout the nation if lawmakers continue to follow the Supreme Court's agenda: less power for People, more power for profiteers. Our special guest tonight is Irving Joyner, professor of law at the North Carolina Central University School of Law. Many are saying after today's ruling that the Civil Rights Movement must begin again. If so, it is already well under way down here. Let's talk about the The Voting Rights Act, and what its effective repeal, coupled with Citizens United, means for our democracy tonight on The Middle Ground. We love our callers: 646-929-2495.
