Feingold returns: 'Progressives United' PAC to fight corporate influence


www.rawstory.com

Feingold has returned -- and like so many other former politicos, he's leading a new political action committee.

Called "Progressives United," Feingold said he intended for the group to stand up to undue corporate influence in the halls of American governance.

"As progressives, it's time we made our voices heard," he said in a video published to YouTube. "Washington, sadly, has become a playground for corporations and their lobbyists. For too long we've watched as our jobs have been shipped overseas, and we've seen our leaders in Washington coddle the Wall Street banks,

Now THIS is a story, and cause to not only pay attention to, but to become involved and proactive in, as this is one of THE biggest problems facing us in modern history---The CORPORATE hijacking and take-over of our leadership on virtually ALL levels!

I don't think ANYONE with two active braincells functioning within their cranium will deny that mega-corporations and Banksters are pulling all of the strings right now!

Feingold is one of those guys who much like Ron Paul, goes against the status quo of corruption and criminality, and calls out TPTB! One of our last heroic figureheads willing to fight for the "little people" imho...

I would say Feingold used to be one of those guys.

He was one of the first, if not the first, to stand up against the Patriot Act, and he caught a lot of flack for it back then.

I am not progressive by a long shot, but I will say, that years ago, he had my respect, and even a vote once or twice.
I disagree with many of his stances, but I always respected him for standing his ground based on what was right, at least from his view point.

If Feingold could get back to what made him a respectable politician (?) years back, he probably could have a shot again here in Wisconsin.
