Political Analysis – America In Revolt


We the People

As the nation awaits President Obama’s State of the Union address, Sandy LeonVest hosts an inspiring program on the essential nature of activism in our (failing) democracy and what is rapidly becoming the second “American Revolution.” She’s joined in this endeavor by Move to Amend founder David Cobb, and human rights activist and single-payer advocate Dr. Margaret Flowers (Physicians for a National Health Program or PNHP).

In breaking news, Sandy airs an excerpt from Move to Amend’s press conference this week in Washington DC announcing the introduction of its groundbreaking amendment, known as “We the People,” into the US Congress. David Cobb talks about the new constitutional amendment to end “corporate personhood” once and for all, with Dr. Margaret Flowers joining the conversation at the bottom of the hour to talk about “America in Revolt,” and the myriad of protests, demonstrations and other actions taking place — and coming up — in the nation’s capital and around the country.
