|When I first started listening to Mike years ago, he would still give a grudging bit of recognition to the established "left" found among the Democrats.
Myself, being already more than cynical about the political shadow play being sold as democracy here in the Empire,I simply chalked it up to a kind of marketing, after all the man needs an audience to make a living.
In these later times, as the facade is all but gone to anyone paying attention with more than half their grey matter, the tendency is to call 'em as he sees 'em.
This is not going to gain listeners, as that half of the population still bothering to vote is thoroughly caught in the myth of the democratic contest between the Dems and the GOP.
I do admire the man's stamina and willingness to speak out.
I fear that the brainwash of the mob is so thorough that a smaller and smaller segment of the audience will tune in , and the market will silence another rare voice crying in the wilderness.
