Bill Moyers Essay: On the Sabotage of Democracy

This is one of the best summaries that I have heard about the shutdown of our American Democracy. It is titled, Bill Moyers Essay: On the Sabotage of Democracy.

While this "ransom", as Bill calls it, is currently being carried out by the Republican Right, it could just as easily be by any extreme interest with enough funding.
I believe that as citizens, it is time that we take back our country from special interests and call for a constitutional convention. Our democracy is not working and it is time to heed the words of one of our great Republican Presidents, Abraham Lincoln. He said in his Gettysburg Address on November 19, 1863 "...that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth".

We have a lot of work to do!
