Next Greg Palast addressed the audience. Greg Palast is the author of "The Best Democracy Money Can Buy." Just a few days ago he released an "expanded election edition" of his book The Best Democracy Money Can Buy: The Truth about Corporate Cons, Globalization and High-Finance Fraudsters. The book contains new material just in time for an election season shaping up to be a bloodbath.
Palast's remarks were punctuated with his characteristic wit, humor and sarcasm. He delighted the crowd, weaving old and new material together in an educational and entertaining presentation. His remarks cover the 2000 Florida election fraud, as well as the situation in Iraq.
Also about 30 minutes in length.
