Making an Exception: Politics Once Again

Today we are seeing the effects of the outrageous monies that were poured into the 2010 mid-term elections. It would seem that politicians are owned by the corporations that contributed to their campaigns.

As a result of the disastrous ruling by our Supreme Court in the Citizens United vs. FEC case, there was more money poured into the 2010 midterm election campaign than in all of the combined midterm elections since 1990. I do hope that you would point your friends to this blog or, at least, share the video link. When big dollars put our elected officials into office, it doesn't matter if they are Republican, Democrat, Libertarian, Independent or anything else; they are owned by whomever owns the purse strings that helped to get them into office. We need to take back our democracy and return it to The People.
