Rootstrikers: Follow-Up to Third World America Book Review

In the review of Third World America I posted the link to The Huffington Post where you can get more information on the ideas and organizations listed in her book (for the specific section on Third World America: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/news/third-world-america/).  One of them called "Fix Congress First!" is now called "Rootstrikers" and can be found here: http://www.rootstrikers.org/  They are organized online, have links to help you find your representatives, spots for street teams and college campus groups, and they have wikis and other neat things like videos and presentation information for those who are interested.  It is a good site and relatively easy to navigate if you are interested in finding out more about them and starting with grass roots action and using the internet to get ideas out there in an organized yet personal way.  Just thought I would share if you are interested in checking out some of the places and organizations mentioned in the book.


The name is based off a quote by Henry David Thoreau, a good one: "There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root."

And so it goes...
