I want to support a grass-roots movement for real change.

I see the loss of the news media to big-money as our #1 problem.

We need accountability. For example, another 9/11 investigation is pointless if the responsible criminals are free to thumb their noses at justice. But justice and even democracy is impossible without a free news media.

I hope the working groups who are crafting a list of goals for this promising movement perceive the HUGE imporatnce of breaking up the news media monopolies.

How can we dream of democracy when the news media is controlled?

We should focus our message " power to the people" with only two demands: public financing of all elected offices, and outlaw all special interest lobbies. Dr Raymond Economist
