Never Underestimate the Power of Regular Americans When They Join Together.
"How Can Middle-Class Americans Influence Public Policy, Espescially at a Time When CEOs and Corps. Have Great Political Influence? Never underestimate the power of regular Americans when they join together, when they're organized and mobilized to seek change. Money at the top can only go so far. Politicians don't only respond to campiagn contributions. They also respond to their constituents when those constituents are energized and mobilized. That means that average working people and retirees should do even more now to become politically effective. Anyhting is doable if enough people want it to happen. Our greates danger is broad based cynicism. If people believe nothing is possible then nothing is possible.
