Dollarocracy: How the Money and Media Election Complex is Destroying America
Fresh from the first 10 billion election campaign, two award-winning authors show how unbridled campaign spending defines our politics and, failing a dramatic intervention, signals the end of our democracy.

Blending vivid reporting from the 2012 campaign trail and deep perspective from decades covering American and international media and politics, political journalist John Nichols and media critic Robert W. McChesney explain how US elections are becoming controlled, predictable enterprises that are managed by a new class of consultants who wield millions of dollars and define our politics as never before. As the money gets bigger—especially after the Citizens United ruling—and journalism, a core check and balance on the government, declines, American citizens are in danger of becoming less informed and more open to manipulation. With groundbreaking behind-the-scenes reporting and staggering new research on “the money power,” Dollarocracy shows that this new power does not just endanger electoral politics; it is a challenge to the DNA of American democracy itself.

Milk Money: Cash, Cows, and the Death of the American Dairy Farm
There’s something un-American and illogical about a market system where the price of a product bears no relation to the cost of its inputs. Yet we have lived with such a scheme in the dairy industry for decades: retail milk prices have stayed the same, while milk prices paid to farmers have plummeted. The dairy business is at the heart of the culture and economy of Vermont, just as it is of many other states. That fact meant little to Kirk Kardashian until he started taking his daughter to daycare at a dairy farm a few miles from his Vermont home—a farm owned by the same family for generations, but whose owners were now struggling to make ends meet. Suddenly, the abstractions of economics and commodities markets were replaced by the flesh and blood of a farm family whom he greeted every day.

In the tradition of Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser, Kardashian asks whether it is right that family farmers in America should toil so hard, produce a food so wholesome and so popular, and still lose money. This gripping investigation uncovers the hidden forces behind dairy farm consolidation, and explains why milk—a staple commodity subject to both government oversight and industry collusion—has proven so tricky to stabilize. Meanwhile, every year we continue to lose scores of small dairy farms. With passion, wit, and humor, Milk Money shows where we are now, how we got here, and where we might be going.

Outsider in the House
Is progressive politics possible in the United States today? Can a democratic socialist take on the two-party system to win a seat in Congress? Bernie Sanders is the first Independent elected to the United States House of Representatives in 40 years. Running primarily on class issues, he successfully put together a coalition of working people, the elderly, the poor, women and environmentalists. Once in Washington, Sanders helped found the House Progressive Caucus, the 52-member group that recently provided the major opposition to Newt Gingrich’s reactionary “Contract with America.”

Outsider in the House gives the inside scoop on Sanders’s discussions about class politics with Bill Clinton in the Oval Office, his battles with the often Byzantine politics of the House floor and his encounters on the campaign trail in Vermont. It provides a penetrating critique both of a growing rightward movement in US politics and the failure of the two-party system to represent working people in America. Scrutinizing the battles on the Hill and across the nation over welfare reform, health care and NAFTA, Sanders lays bare the powerful forces which have produced the most inequitable distribution of wealth in American history. But he outlines, too, the positive role that Congress could play in protecting working Americans by introducing an Alternative Budget which would slash military spending and corporate welfare and use the savings to rebuild America’s human and physical infrastructure.

Here, in a passionate and personal voice, is the story of one man’s battle against the chimerical choice presented by the Republicans and Democrats. Others must follow the path that Congressman Bernie Sanders has taken before US democracy can be revived. Outsider in the House is a compelling signpost for that most difficult of political journeys.

Discurso: Sobre la codicia de las grandes empresas y el declive de la clase media (Spanish Edition)
Discurso is the full transcript of the memorable speech Senator Bernie Sanders gave on the floor of the United States Senate on Friday, December 10th, 2010. It turned out to be a very long speech, lasting over eight and a half hours. And it hit a nerve. Millions followed the speech online until the traffic crashed the Senate server. In his speech, Sanders blasted the agreement that President Obama struck with Republicans, which extended the Bush tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires, lowered estate tax rates for the very, very rich, and set a terrible precedent by establishing a "payroll tax holiday" diverting revenue away from the Social Security Trust Fund, threatening the fund’s very future. But the speech was more than a critique of a particular piece of legislation. It was a dissection of the collapse of the American middle class and a well-researched attack on corporate greed and on public policy which, over the last several decades, has led to a huge growth in millionaires even as the United States has the highest rate of childhood poverty in the industrialized world. It was a plea for a fundamental change in national priorities, for government policy that reflects the needs of working families, and not just the wealthy and their lobbyists. Sanders' speech is a call for action. It is a passionate statement informing us that the only people who will save the middle class of this country is the middle class itself, but only if it is informed, organized, and prepared to take on the enormously powerful special interests dominating Washington.

Her book is a fine contribution to that revolution, teaching us how to eat more healthfully, how to buy from local farmers, how to cook what they raise.” —Senator Bernie Sanders, from the foreword

Election 2008: Lipstick on the Pig
While the two candidates "authorized" to run for President by the two "main" parties that have destroyed the Republic trade barbs about "lipstick on the pig," the reality is that the pig is politics, and this election is lipstick on that pig. The average American has more common sense than any of these clowns, all of whom have been subverted by two forms of corruption: financial bribery from special interests; or "party line" voting that violates both Article 1 of the Constitution (the responsibility of Congress to balance the power of the Executive) and the public interest of the constituency that elected each of them. This book offered here at Amazon as a unique full-color signed and wire-bound edition, provides public intelligence in the public interest. The author is also available to interact personally with groups able to cover travel expenses. Four chapters outline the substance of governance; the legitimate grievances of the two dozen secessionist movements in America; an overview of the candidates' platitudes about the issues; an overview of how to achieve a balanced budget in the public interest; and a call to arms: a clear description of how a Public Trust could raise $500 million a year to buy back our government. An annotated bibliography, each entry with a hot link to a longer review at Amazon where interested readers can both learn more or buy the book being discussed, covers everything from Anti-Americanism to the culture of catastrophe & cheating to War, Waste, & Crimes Against Humanity. The book's signal recommended public demand is for Electoral Reform that offers an Instant Run-Off in the November 2008/2012/2016/2020 election to allow all voters to express their demand for restoration of a multi-party system, while still electing a majority President. Let's lose the lipstick, eat the pig, and move on. it's time to put We the People back into the Republic. Learn more about Open Power and Electoral Reform at http://tinyurl.com/OpenPower.
