    • David Sirota Urges Progressives to Lead "The Uprising" - 6/12/08

      David Sirota speaks at Cody's bookstore in Berkeley, California as part of a nationwide tour to promote his new book: "The Uprising: An Unauthorized Tour of the Populist Revolt Scaring Wall Street and Washington." Sirota envies the opportunity Californians have to exert legislative change than can affect the entire nation. He suggests that all the energy spent on Presidential elections would be more constructively used on our local and state issues. By using an electoral coalition building technique called fusion and a focus on economic issues, rather than social justice ones, Sirota bares witness to a method of crashing through the two-party system and pushing through progressive legislation.

            Matt Gonzalez, Vice Presidential Running Mate of Ralph Nader's, addresses an enthusiastic, standing-room-only crowd at the historic Roxie Theater in the heart of San Francisco, the Mission District. The Nader/Gonzalez campaign suggests that the major party candidates fail to present meaningful solutions that average voters need, like universal healthcare, living wage, environmental protection, peaceful foreign affairs policy. Gonzalez opposes the system as he describes opponent Senator Obama's voting record as evidence that all the major candidates are very susceptible to corporate influence and that voting for Obama, despite his popularity, will not bring about the changes that people want. http://www.polidoc.com http://www.polidoc.blogspot.com http://youtube.com/user/polidocproductions
