Let’s Talk Clinton: Ramsey Clark

“If he does [fail], the cost to the country and its people will be absolutely enormous.”


. . . next luminary . . .

Clinton needs to energize the dormant better angels in our society and those disillusioned and left out, and enlist their energy in a vision for a country closer to our ideals. End poverty. Education for all our children. Wipe out discrimination.

We’ve drifted to plutocracy. Unless President Clinton faces it and presents a desirable alternative he, too, will fail, and if he does, the cost to this government, the country, and its people will be absolutely enormous. We’ve dismantled so much of our government and government-related efforts to provide necessities for society that unless he acts we can’t hold back the miseries.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
