Our Dysfunctional Constitution and Alternative Democracies

program date: 
Mon, 04/16/2012

Tom Becker reads  David Michael Green's CounterPunch essay: "A Very Sick Country: deep maladies of the body politic". Green argues that, while it's not all bad, core features of the American political system -- the president, the electoral system, judicial review, state ownership and the separations of powers -- are either counterproductive to democracy or at best antiquated. He then goes on to make the case for a unitary parlimentary government, like most of the rest of the democratic world uses.

Short Description: 
Your government wants to see you naked. Abe and Joe discuss last week's Supreme Court ruling.

Justice may be blind, but your government wants to see you naked. Last week's Supreme Court ruling in Florence v. Bd. of Chosen Freeholders lets law enforcement impose a strip search for virtually any offense. It's another nail in the coffin for the 4th Amendment, and part of the nascent security state which, rather than being pared back in the post-Bush era, is only becoming more firmly entrenched. Abe and Joe take a closer look.

The Abe and Joe Talk Radio Show on 04/03/12

Air date: 
Tue, 04/03/2012 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Yes, there really is a vast conservative conspiracy. Abe and Joe look at ALEC.

 In the early 1970s, a group of conservative lawmakers and businesspeople realized that synchronicity between the governments of different states was the path to ideological supremacy. The American Legislative Exchange Council -- ALEC -- was born. The group "assists" state legislators -- many of whom constitute ALEC's membership -- to draft legislation that downsizes government, removes corporate regulations, and makes it harder to hold wealthy miscreants to account.
