Find the 1%’s pet candidate.
How? Find who has the most WS / 1% donations. Defeat him. Vote for the opponent who can win. Make the big money a liability.
Any politician must have money to campaign, but as it works now, they have every reason to get donations from GS and every other overly-powerful corporation. More money works for them. Change that! Make it so the most WS money loses them votes, loses them elections. Then the power shifts. Voters become important. Corporate cash weakens.
They will have to see a few elections lost. Think of it as a training program: Pavlov’s politicians. Bad pol…no cookie!
Now, we would be voting for candidates who will not be pure. They will not be perfect. It is all about shifting power. Our power is votes. Their power is money. We can use votes to undermine the power of money.
We have to create winners. Don’t just hand the election back to the 1%.
We want to change laws, but right now a level playing field does not exist. The 1% has a stranglehold on the system. First we need to reduce their power and work our way to better candidates. Build power for the 99%.
