When Democracy Worked

In Conversations With Great Minds, Thom Hartmann speaks with Ralph Nader about the days "when democracy worked," along with a range of key current issues affected by the corporate lockdown on our political process, and how to move towards (what he describes as) subordinating the corporate entity to individual sovereignty.  Topics include (you know, all those things we can't seem to change because of this corporate lock down, like) Citizens United, campaign finance reform and the two-party system, a substantial increase in the minimum wage, Edward Snowden, the government spying on everyone, getting away from America's war-mongering foreign policy to a peacetime foreign policy, and passing sorely needed and sane health care legislation like single payer.
