In the run-up to this year’s Presidential election, Rob Connaire, aka Politicabbie, has found a way to take politics back to the people: Take a ride in his Main Line taxi, and he’ll offer you the chance to express your political views, on camera. As he says, “The average bear knows a lot more than politicians give them credit for. Neither my customers nor I have a $10,000 check in our hand, but if we band together a series of conversations, who knows what we could do?” The Citizen will publish Politicab’s videos, which will also be uploaded to YouTube. Maybe our electeds will take heed.
In this episode, Philadelphia therapist Ashley King talks about the impact of expecting either Clinton or Trump to solve our problems.
“There’s very little sense of personal responsibility, like really our collective well-being is in the hands of one or the other,” says King. “That’s the thing that’s causing so much unrest for people.”
