This is the age of corporatized politics. That means we may admire our leaders, but we can't depend on them. We're paying the price for Thomas Jefferson's unfulfilled desire to "crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country."

Note:  WM: We have entered a new arena of social activism.  We are no longer focused on issues as we are with the power brokers, the "Gnomes" who pull the marionette strings of modern politics.  We do not yet know the fabric of the next battlefield nor the role that we will play - but the lesson we did learn is that all revolution is grass roots in nature.  Down with Corporate Politics - Up With People.
