If you think just showing up to vote in November is going to fix this country, you got another thing coming. Voting (which 50% of Americans usually don't do) can't be the end of our obligation as American citizens.
Recently I saw a fantastic documentary film. The director, Jonathan Neil Schneider left a successful career and spent his savings to expose how our elections are financed and how it can corrupt Washington. "Mr. Schneider Goes to Washington" couldn't be more timely. It is also funny and entertaining. Throughout the film I kept asking myself, "Where is our democracy heading?" "Aren't there any rules anymore?".
Everyone needs to see this film! And to all my friends in the media, if you want to know what Lee Iacocca thinks is wrong with politics, watch "Mr. Schneider Goes to Washington."
And, please take a look at the "revised" 9C's Scorecard! Print it out and pass it around.
