NOVEMBER 6 2012 – ELECTION DAY IN THE UNITED STATES
2012 – ELECTION DAY IN THE UNITED STATES
It may be impossible to believe in our corporate-dominated elections where corporations and the wealthy few decide which candidates are “electable,” what issues are dis(cussed) and what constitutes “news,” but there were some federal elections in our nation’s history where the nature of money and democratic control over the issuing and circulation of our nation’s money was one of, if not THE, major issues in the campaign [i.e. 1832 election of Andrew Jackson and 1896 election of William McKinley over William Jennings Bryan].
