Ringing in the New

It's up to you. We know lobbyists and corporations have a stranglehold on our government. If you want real change, it's up to you, me, all of us to first understand what policies do what, what economic policies have what real effect, trade polices, labor laws... and then fight like hell to get those policies which work for America and Americans in place. Documenting the horror with no action is getting really old and I do hope that activity is flushed along with 2010. Happy New Year! --The Economic Populist
