Today, the Supreme Court has ruled to lift restrictions on what corporations and labor organizations may invest to sway voters in federal elections. This vote means an end to real democracy.
Let me be clear about what this means.
If the Supreme Court had done this previously, than the cigarette companies would still be selling cigarettes on the air, in teenage magazines, with no warning on their packaging. The cigarette companies would have saturated the airways to vote out the candidate trying to tell the truth about the fact that cigarettes were the number one killer of Americans. Ford Pinto’s would have never had to pull their faulty auto, causing explosions and killing 100’s of people. Ford would have purchased the candidate which would support Ford.
The implications of this are simple: an end to democracy in America.
This is so new, that I don’t even know yet what we can do about it. The only thing I have heard about is www.savedemocracy.net
