Your arguments are well stated. A problem, however, is to get these facts of recent history even discussed in the popular media. Apparently, you are considered to radical to receive much publicity. However, there should be others (like the Nation's publisher)who can at the least get such facts and conclusions debated. Is the will of the majority losing influence in our elections and public policies generally?
There is a NPR show called "On the Media" that could be a start. However, a real meaningful national debate could be had about "What does democracy mean in today's society?" and "Are we losing it?" I just wish our country was as democratic as most us believe.
