    Unitary Moonbat, I'm all for it.

    You do realize, of course, that you're calling for revolution, in the most literal sense of those without power taking it and those with losing.  While the villains of the essay are neocons and base Republicans, they've been egged on by a small international conglomerate owner class who reap power and wealth.  You're calling for the citizens to sieze their rightful power through the Congress and the President, and the fat cats aren't going to willingly yield their "due."  Plus, a large majority of Congresspeople of both parties hew to the fat cat side.  But, righteous essay!  To get something of what we want, we have to articulate it and fight for it.

    Government and laws are the agreement we all make to secure everyone's freedom.

      why bother with part of change or some change, eventually we partition it down until it is nothing more than a new pepsi logo.

      If making multi-nationals pay a % more in taxes counts as revolution, if fighting climate change and demanding consumer debt relief is radical I will go out and march right now.

      F#@k this Congress and the limos they rode in on!
