Can We Save Our Democracy?

Is a country with true universal single payer health care, free higher education, a concerted effort to reverse the climate crisis, and reasonable choices at the ballot box a possibility? Drs. Jill Stein and Margaret Flowers are convinced that this world can be transformed into a world of social, economic, and ecological justice. They are sure enough to have given up their respective medical practices to work full time on the changes that would lead us to this better world.

I am usually a skeptic, fluxuating between despair, anger, and a sense of hopelessnes. That being said, I have found what I believe to be a possible path out of the current mess in what these two women are saying. I plan to follow up on their suggestions, you should too.
