So now

the rancid five on our "illustrious" Supreme Court have made it easier to steal and buy elections than they have for people to vote in them!!

The McCutcheon decision adding to the Citizens United decision SHOULD make voters of all of us.

I am not worried so much about Massachusetts, although nothing can be taken for granted especially for governor, but I am very worried about other states including swing states where Democrats on the federal level could be at risk.

If there were any question about the importance of voting for Democrats in 2014 and beyond it should be now.  Show the Roberts court of five that instead of helping their millionaires and billionaires to get their good ole boys elected they have ensured the election of Democrats well into the future. 


In Answer to McCutcheon a Blogger has it 100% correct

I do not know who this blogger is below but she responded to the latest Sup. Ct. McCutcheon decision supporting an oligarchy and her blog speaks a truth I have known for a long time.  

Moral of her story:  VOTE and make the 1% IRRELEVANT!

In the end the Koch brothers each get just one vote. Just like the rest of us. The reason all the campaign money works is because people buy into what they are bombarded with. Instead of doing the work of researching the candidates they believe the advertisements. If they did the actual work, more candidates that 

1% of votes don't win elections. They have to earn support from members of the 99%. These are the voters screwing themselves and the entire country over by believing the ads instead of visiting the websites and really thinking about what their lives would look like under each candidate's vision. What would their life look like after a year of unemployment in their vision?

I have a blog and Politics is one of many topics I blog about. I'm in NJ and before last year's election I did a post comparing standings for Buono and Christie. Their standings came right from their websites, back to back for easy comparison. I did recommend voting for Buono. I'm a Democrat but not fully against Christie. Instincts told me this term wouldn't be the same. Enter Bridgegate. 

Yes, it was a lot of work. There are a lot of issues. But my vote is as powerful as a Koch vote. It mattered. Research meant I did it right. Buono lost the election but won the aftermath of Bridgegate.
