Why has Buddy Roemer been kept out of Republican debates? He was governor of Louisiana and a member of congress and maybe the reason is that he’s talking about taking on the real power behind both parties. But as frontrunners come and go, he’s getting more attention. The powers that be don’t want him and he’s counting on that issue to connect him with voters from the Tea Party right and the Occupy Wall Street left, and middle class voters who may be a bit upset too. He says he wants America to be a republic again. Pretty radical stuff.
