This evening’s show will be an Enlightened, Evolutionary Politics Roundtable, dedicated to ideas about transforming the current political zeitgeist in the U.S.
To help bring forth first an understanding of what it’s really like to serve in Congress, then enlightening ideas about its transformation, is Representative Dennis Kucinich, Congressman from Ohio, former, two-term Mayor of Salt Lake City, Rocky Anderson, now running for President in the Justice Party and former Vice-Presidential candidate, social philosopher Barbara Marx Hubbard, each of whom has been a guest a few times on A Better World Radio &/or TV.
We have last-minute word that former Presidential candidate Ralph Nader may be joining us as well.
We can evaluate Obama’s track record using statistics and apply them to unemployment, GNP, military spending and inflation (or deflation). This is probably how the GOP will try to portray his presidency. It’s an effective strategy mainly because many economic indicators were better when he took office then they are today. It’s easy to point to statistics and convince people, based on empirical evidence, that this nation was in better shape when George W. Bush was President. In fact, it’s so easy to manipulate numbers, that even a brain-dead candidate like Romney could “prove” that things have undoubtedly gone downhill since Obama took office.
