I have to say, as I listened to former Vice President Al Gore speak, I could not help but think of what might have been but were it not for a cabal of activist Supreme Court justices.
Appearing on Countdown last night with Keith Olbermann, Current TV founder Al Gore said the United States needed an “American spring” similar to the Arab spring in the Middle East and Northern Africa.
Mr. Gore said:
“We need to have an American spring. Non-violent change, where people from the grassroots get involved again. Not in the tea party style. There are people who are genuinely upset in the tea party, I understand that, but that movement was funded with seed money from right-wing billionaires, the Koch brothers, and promoted on Fox News and turned into a stalking horse for this right-wing agenda that a lot of people have been trying to push on this country for a long time.”
“This country is in trouble. Our democracy has been withering on the vine. This has been going on for some time.”
