I suggest renting the movie "Pray the Devil Back to Hell" for those who want to view how the delivery of a sustained, persistent, non-violent, united, simple and powerful message can make even the most brutal government hear the demands of its citizens. Leymah Gbowee is an inspirational woman.
The one thing that unites people of many political persuasions in the US is campaign finance reform. Publicly funded campaigns. Many of these problems can be addressed by striking at that root.
The history of Liberia is fascinating. Those women ousted Charles Taylor, no small feat!
And, I agree. Getting money out seems to be the one place that we can all come together.
