In War on the Middle Class CNN's Lou Dobbs argues that both the Clinton and the current Bush administrations are responsible for eliminating millions of manufacturing jobs in America. At an event hosted by Rainy Day Books in Kansas City, Missouri, Mr. Dobbs explains that due to younger generations being less educated than their parents, rapid growth in illegal immigration, and a corrupt health care system, the gap between the rich and poor in the United States is larger than ever.

I couldn't agree with Dobbs more on his point of registering as an independent when you vote. And furthering his idea in that the Republican and Democrat labels are a top down marketing approach. Americans should make a mockery of partisan re-districting by voting as independents.
Dobbs is far more schooled on the issues of immigration and the economy than I am, but I share his sense of urgency regarding the economy. I believe that the positive economic indicators purveyed by the government are trumped by the reality that America is hemorrhaging jobs and racking up historical trade deficits and national debts.
The American people have shown that democracy is still alive, but we need to participate and be engaged 365 days a year. We need to be involved and correct so many of the wrongs that have been perpetrated upon this nation by our politicians. We need to change the direction of this country from being regressive to progressive.
