Issue #63: The Indy Exposes Bush's Great Social
Security Hoax

As we move into a second Bush Administration, the new
issue of The Indypendent takes an in-depth look at one
of Bush's most ambitious and brazen gambits:
privatizing Social Security. Find out what right-wing
ideologues have in mind, whether Democrats will roll
over one more time and what people are doing to stop
Bush's plans in their tracks. We also have an
interview with a D.C. organizer for the upcoming
inaugural protests as well as articles about the
struggles ofa decaying factory town in the middle of
red state America, the unraveling of Chinatown's
garment industry, how video activists exposed a cop
who lied under oath in one of the first RNC-related
cases to go to trial and a look at how a little-known
bipartisan organization that manufactures U.S style
democracy around the world from Iraq to the Ukraine.
