Mountain_light_2_small

Jim Hightower wants Americans to regain the strength of the populist agitators who fought corporate power in the late 19th century:  


"We owe them imitation. We owe them the continuation of that spirit that we do not have to just accept what is handed to us. We can battle back against the powers. But it's not just going to a rally and shouting. It's organizing and it's thinking. And reaching out to others. And building a real people's movement."

Jim Hightower's voice is needed more than ever in these challenging times!!
