Democratic presidential candidate Jesse Jackson offers a ray of hope for democracy in America. Although we're living in a country which claims to be the epitome of democracy, it should be apparent that we suffer under an oligarchy. An unholy alliance of special interests controls our government. While one group manages the economy in order to loot the country's resources, the other controls an egregious foreign policy which does not even serve the nation.
But, with Jackson, there is a good chance of a viable third party, primarily because of a potentially monolithic black vote. Jackson can use this impetus to form a party that is neither racist nor exclusive, but which represents the thinking of a segment of American people.
