What if the American people aren't all Homers after all? What if we rebel against Citizens United and refuse to vote for candidates supported by Rove's "Crossroads GPS" and the Koch's "Americans for Prosperity?" Would that get corporate money-speech, the so called free speech that's so costly to democracy, out of politics and the cons' Court supreme be damned?
Wouldn't that be cool? If the smug bastards that think they own us saw their slaves refuse to take direction, would they lose heart (after buying 100s of millions in slick ads only to fail to sway the people) and retire dejected to a well deserved ennui? We can make our election day, by voting against the right's corporate money.
Yeah! It's all a dream. But I prefer it to the nightmare of plutocratic tyranny that's being created as we passively watch our democratic republic and life sustaining economy be destroyed by the greed of the one percent [or less] and their ministers, the 9% or so that remain in the dwindling middle classes.
