I couldn't agree more Magus ...
short of a revolution, what we we need to do is push a referendum that ends all corporate donations of any kind. that would completely shake up the system and even the political playing field.
we supposedly have separation of church & state, but when big business IS the religion of this country, how can we not separate big business and state?
revisions in the penal system that need to take place never will because they help maintain the political status quo.... keep the poor and minorities in jail and keep stripping them of the right to vote if you want to maintain a system that does not cater to them. hence the tremendously high percentage of americans in jail as opposed to other countries.
