Declare Your Independence! Americans Need Independent Media, Independent Movements and Independent Electoral Politics
If I had to pick one word for Americans who want real change, it would be independence.
Not only because the United States was founded on the idea of independence but because those of us who work to try and change the country for the better and have studied American history have learned this has always been the critical ingredient for real change.
First, we need independent media. Web based outlets like this one are a critical ingredient to the success of advocacy efforts. Like so many businesses in the United States, the media is controlled by concentrated group of corporations. A handful of companies own all the hundreds of television stations on your cable TV. The same is true of radio stations. More and more newspapers are part of syndicates. These conglomerates has resulted in homogenized that only reports a concentrated corporate perspective.

The Senate is currently working on the so-called “reform” of the financial industry. I say “so-called” because thus far there is nothing in the bill that the big banks and the crony capitalists on Wall Street oppose. There have been several important votes and now we can see whether senators are representing the people or the banksters.
