The Predator’s Ball - The Stench Of Money In Our Elections And In Our Court System

Why don’t we have publicly-funded elections with spending limits?  How is a mom or dad or farmer or doctor or whomever from Dubuque, Iowa ever to serve in our country’s process of governance?  A government of the people, by the people, for the people.  They can’t.  That’s the intent.  Enormous money in politics guarantees only candidates supported by the corrupt political machines beholden to the will of their masters – the uber rich oligarchs and large corporations.  Our Supreme Court, under dubious sway from money, hides behind the Constitution allowing billions and billions of corporate dollars to determine our elections.  Funny, I never read that in the Constitution.  And I have this sneaking suspicion our founding fathers would puke all over our Supreme Court and the endless rot of money. 

Who can honestly say this is a noble process of a republic, a democracy or a country ruled by laws?  This is a process determined by the golden rule – those who have the gold make the rules.
