Later this year registered voters all over the country will be receiving invites to take a job at the polls this November, I suggest we do so. Not to push our positions but to meet the people who are still involved, learn how we can tell them about wealth inequality in America. Learn how the system works, even if someday that means knowing its weak points. Many of these people will be retirees; some will be “leaders” in the community.
This year the SuperPacs will remind people with only 10 or 20 or 100 million just how small they are. It might change some minds on Campaign Finance when a bunch of people who thought they mattered find out they don’t.
