    only the Republican party but the Democratic one as well.
    I have read his book, The American Dynasty, and he was very critical of the Bush clan. It takes courage to look at your own party and expose its flaws.

    It is not just a time for a revolution in political thinking but an evolution. We need to learn to think out side the box of our own parties. We need to understand how Democracy itself works. The democratic method is a process that is not owned by the Democrats. Occupy has brought about the window of opportunity by challenging its most powerful institutions in our society-- the banking institutions.

    This is a more powerful moment for change than the 60's were. We were trying to change social concepts. We started to understand the environment but that became a political fight instead of national concern. We had some success. We can build on that now. We now need to challenge the underlying notions of what makes a democracy work and even capitalism itself. Study-up people. This is going to be quite a ride.
