24. Yes, back then I was calling Senators and Representatives to ask
them to restore the Constitutionally mandated balance of power and to stop their support both in troops and weaponry to kill people and dissent in Central America in the service of the Pope's war on Liberation Theology.

At the time NCR was doing its best to emulate T.V. news with its constant struggle to keep Ronnie Raygun in the spotlight as the "teflon president" as was the Democratically controlled Congress. Many of the people I contacted are still in office and they still resist the urge to equalize the power of the three branches of government.

A major problem today is that we have, as then, no effective Congress and the Supremes aren't and NCR is as guilty as all other "news" outlets. Also, even if your local outlets have "fund raisers" all the time, the real money to fund NCR comes from Corporations and has done since the 80's.
