A crisis in democratic governance

[Update 11/29/11]  About halfway through his interview Thomas Ferguson mentions a well-financed third party, Americans Elect, which is likely to be on the ballot on most states in 2012 and likely to influence the outcome of the election.   I admit I hadn’t heard of them before.

Click on Americans Elect Wants to Be on Presidential Ballot, But Won’t ID Doners for a report by Huffington Post.

Click on Americans Elect 2012 for the organization’s home page.

The success of Americans Elect in getting up and running so quickly, without any fanfare, is a good example of the power of people with money and organization.
