34. If the existing Dem candidates would quit enabling
corporate abuse and do what Dean did--appeal to the individual citizen and represent their interests, they would meet with success. In the absence of willingness to do just that, we need to create a movement. Funding will follow. $10 contributions across many people has just as much power as 1 large contributor, and many more votes. Do not dismiss the little guy--that is the mistake those in office are making now. The old labor movement was a cooperative movement among many types of workers. We need to revive a populist message for workers--blue and white collar. I think white collar workers would be receptive now that their jobs are also being outsourced and they have become part of downsizing too.

It takes work--lots of it--within the workplace and community. It also takes a willingness to really stand up for what you believe.
