The terrorist attack in Paris reminds us that the Middle East has been destabilized, while at the same time we are dealing with catastrophic climate disruption, and a worldwide economic system on 'life support'. Tackling these problems is impossible without effective government.
Unfortunately, our government has been crippled over the past 35 years by unrestrained industrial and financial powers for whom the crime of bribing public officials has been converted to the profession of 'for profit' mega-corporate lobbying.
Only during a presidential election is there sufficient turnout to overcome the mass media, a propaganda system that has replaced responsible journalism and the free press. It will take grassroots action to inform and mobilize a sufficient number of citizens to establish Democratic Party congressional dominance that will take the USA in the right direction.
The current polarization caused by politicians beholden to corporate interests and the resurgence of those who support the democratic ideals and systems first put in place under FDR will sufficiently increase the turnout for the election.
