Ep. 31: Paul Rosenberg on Why Voting Still Matters

Journalist and political analyst Paul Rosenberg is the guest on this week's episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show. Paul is a contributing writer to news outlets and websites such as Salon.comAlternet, and Al Jazeera. He is also the senior editor of Random Length News. Mr. Rosenberg also runs the website Merge Left. Paul is a sharp and amazingly insightful observer of American (and global) politics. He is also very patient as he sits down with Chauncey DeVega under the learning tree. In this episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show, Paul and Chauncey discuss how to keep hope alive in an era of broken politics, neoliberalism, and austerity. Paul also explains to Chauncey how "principled non-voting" is not an effective strategy and actually works in the interest of the plutocrats and the 1 percent. Paul and Chauncey also talk about how blogging and social media have changed journalism, why Obama is so malleable and weak in the face of Republican racism and obstructionism, and why the Democrats lost the midterm elections and are impotent in the face of the GOP's "drown the government baby in the bathtub" thuggery and irresponsible politics. Chauncey DeVega also offers some reflections and thoughts on the passing of the one and only Mr. Leonard Nimoy.
