The People Are Revolting (in the very best sense of that word)
CD - $12.00
In this hilarious and inspiring talk, America's #1 Populist, Jim Hightower, launches a broadside at the Powers That Be on behalf of The Powers That Ought To Be - namely, working families, consumers, the environment, small businesses and just-plain-folks. Hightower not only points out the plutocratic, autocratic and anti-democratic shortcomings of "Dubya" and his band of Bushites, he also points the way toward a revitalized Progressive political movement that is taking root across America. (Intro by the late Senator Paul Wellstone.)
