We need a separate political party that only focuses on economic equality – no social issues, idealogy, etc. – just plain fair taxes and benefits for the middle and lower class.
With just a few votes in the Senate and a couple dozen in the House, this new party would wield enough power to move both parties to stop screwing the American people.
Somebody can come up with a name, but we need some elected officials who can appeal to common sense people on both sides of the aisle. They can’t be for or against abortion, gay rights, but they can apply economic ideals to not wanting unnecessary wars, cuts in Social Security and child health, and oppose more corporate tax cuts and NAFTA-type deals.

First full-time job at 17 was dollar-an-hour newspaper copyboy at the Evening and Sunday Bulletin (760,000 daily). Promotions led to general assignments and rewrite at that Pulitzer Prize winning newspaper (1964 and 1965). After the Bulletin, served as the editor of Valley Forge Sentinel and Conshohocken Recorder, Sr. VP of their newspaper group in 1972, and became publisher in 1975 of the West Oak Lane Leader - an African-American community newspaper - for the next 18 years.
In 1993 named president of ING's 18-newspapers in Metro Philadelphia and New Jersey. Company was later purchased by JRC (NYSE), and I was appointed publisher of the Montgomery/Bucks/Philly newspaper division by the infamous Journal Register CEO Bob Jelenic.
During the 60s and 70s, I corresponded for the United States Information Agency, reporting and writing for publication in foreign countries.
