78. I am a moderate.
That puts me a few steps out of line with many on the DU. But I love everyone. We are all democrats.

The most effective way to deny corporations money for political electioneering and to start leveling the economic playing field is to start up or fund the start up of companies that compete against them and promote those company's products to like minded citizens. If progressives continue the vote and governance only push of the last two decades, the only outcome in my estimation is failure, with corporations growing ever stronger. Work to start up and nurture companies that put workers and their customer's well being first. Profits are necessary for any company to survive, but progressive companies put most of that profit back into workers and product safety improvements.

Upset about pollution of water and air? Start a company that researches cost effective and efficient abatement methods.

Upset about off shoring of jobs? Support companies that refuse to build their products anywhere except on the mainland USA.

Upset about automobile safety? Start a company that builds ultra safe, fuel efficient automobiles. Just building and selling a handful the first time around is a start. If the cars are well built and fuel efficient, more orders will flow in.

Upset about how multinational hotel chains treat workers and customers? Many cities have abandoned buildings that can be turned into boutique hotels.
