Thom Hartmann's new book

While the radical GOP extremists have been diverting the attention of America's middle class with demagogic, divisive emotional "values" issues, the Republican Party has been picking their pockets, reducing their opportunies, and dismantling their support systems.

As the book illustrates, the rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer, and the middle calss is getting screwed.

Hartmann always grounds his contemporary analysis in the context of the origins of our nation, our Constitution, and revolutionary history.

Do people or profits come first in our society?

Are we a nation that is interested in advancing the public good and interest of the many? Or are we an oligarchy, in which the many must sacrifice their futures for the benefit of a privileged few?

The latter sounds a lot like a monarchy, doesn't it?

And wasn't the American Revolution a result of the rule of an unjust, tyrannical monarchy? - buy it here
