Someone on the Huff Post blog had a GREAT IDEA HOW TO FIGHT THE CHOKING OF OUR ELECTORAL PROCESS THROUGH OBSCENE MONEY GIVEN BY REPUBLICAN DESTROYERS OF DEMOCRACY -- DO THE OPPOSITE of what these treasonous obliterators of our country’s democratic processes are doing. I hear from Democrats AND Republicans alike about how much they loathe humongous money in politics. To HAVE to spend 2 billion for a presidential campaign is MORE than obscene it is ruinous. Think of what good could be done with that Mount Everest of money for the jobless or the sick.
This is what this ruinous Supreme Court has done. Even Anthony Kennedy, a fairer justice of the unconscionable five, had NO conscience on the Citizens United decision. The five will have a legacy of those poisonous justices who decided the historically embarrassing Dred Scott and Plessy v. Ferguson decisions and it will NOT be a proud one. They may have the conservative money dogs salivating and bearing their teeth but to those who look to this country as an example of equitable thought and fair play they will forever go down as contributors to the evisceration of American democracy. Conservatives are NOT about loving this country because if they did they would want at least a relatively level playing field and at least some democratic fair play.
IT IS TIME TO THINK ABOUT DOING THE OPPOSITE. THE ONLY WAY MONEY CAN SUCCEED IS IF THE POPULATION IS SWAYED BY THE COMMERCIALS MONEY BUYS. I CANNOT IMAGINE THAT ANYONE WOULD VOTE FOR A PERSON BECAUSE OF A SKEWED AD AND I ESPECIALLY CANNOT BELIEVE THAT ANYONE EXCEPT THE 1% RICHEST WOULD STEP ON THEIR OWN TOES AND VOTE REPUBLICAN!
IF YOU LOVE YOUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN, HAVE A VESTED INTEREST IN THE NEXT GENERATION OR SIMPLY FOR YOUR OWN CONSCIENCE BOYCOTT POLITICAL COMMERCIALS BY USING YOUR MUTE BUTTON AND BOYCOTT THOSE COMPANIES AND GAMBLING CASINOS THAT ARE TIED TO KOCH, ADELSON AND OTHER MULTI-BILLIONAIRE REPUBLICAN MOGELS WHO HAVE BOUGHT OUR COUNTRY.
BIG MONEY ONLY WINS IF WE THE PEOPLE LET IT. DON'T!!
