It's the Election Boycott hour on Carson's Corner this week! Join Bob Carson and cohost Christopher Alan Driscoll as they discuss the Election Boycott Advocates, and welcome members, supporters, and callers to the show.
Last week, we discussed the corrupt system, which Thomas Baldwin says, "Is controlled by the two party duopoly." In addition, we discussed the ineffectiveness of the 3rd party candidates. As Christopher Alan Driscoll noted, there has been a substantial effort (over 200 times) to create third parties, and yet they produce very little results. Ralph Nader, one of the nation's most recognizable figures, only got 2.7% of the vote in 2000. As Bob Carson noted, the fact that 3rd party candidates are not even close in the polls shows you that the party platforms don't matter; votes are cast for PR purposes.
What about the argument that getting money out of politics? Emmagee Mindy from Oregon notes that Janet Napolitano, former governor of Arizona, ran on a clean money platform and yet now she is the President UC Berkeley, making money off of student debt.
This week we will discuss all of these important issues, plus the People's Climate March. What do the boycotters feel about the march? Tune at 9pm est to find out.
