What happened?

Starting in 1978, the Supreme Court began to allow corporate money to influence politics. Since then, average Americans have seen their wages stagnate and their share of taxes rise significantly, while corporations have seen their tax burden shrink and the top 1% have literally tripled their income. There has been a massive redistribution of wealth in this country. And it’s going straight to the top. Yet corporate wealth and corporate power continues to grow unabated as the Supreme Court ruled in 2010 in Citizens United v. FEC that corporations can now spend unlimited money in politics.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Citizens_United_v._Federal_Election_Commission_Poll_1.png What I’d really like to know is who in the hell are the sheep that favor this decision and why? I remember when this case was ruled on. It blew my mind that it was ruled the way it was. It got very little media coverage and most people didn’t seem to care. I wonder why?

Either by design or by evolution, the FED (and it’s private shareholders) is making a global coup that opposes the century’s of effort by we the people to remove ourselves from servitude and now liberty is eroding right before our eyes…it’s just happening over 3 decades so it is hard to notice without looking back. Like a frog in a room temperature pot of water that is slowly brought to boil, the frog will not notice it is being boiled alive. Jump out of the pot damn it!

Scott Nichols is on the right track (see his comment below). We DO own the airwaves. Decades ago, we did have Public Service Announcements quite frequently. Cities, counties and even states would have one or two minute spots on TV to discuss various events or causes. We need to open up our PUBLIC airwaves for PUBLIC functions, namely election debates and candidate’s appeals to voters. We could also LIMIT and EVEN out how much TV time candidates could have in terms of their slick ads. Perhaps we wouldn’t even ALLOW the slick attack ads (think Willie Horton ad) whatsoever. How about candidates go in to a TV studio and sit at a desk or table and simply address the public, much like the opposing parties “rebuttal” remarks after the President’s State of the Union address. People are SICK of the typical political ads which are snarky attacks and out of context spin.

I think that a major plank of this movement needs to call out specific remedies for getting the money out of our political system. We the people own the airwaves and lease access to various corporations. It will not cost us a dime to require free airtime- divided evenly between candidates, to campaign. Most of a campaign’s expenditures are spent on ad time, and this measure would DRASTICALLY reduce campaign expenditure levels in and of itself.

Let us not forget that the church is bought too. From narional foundings through the late 1950’s the jews were wrongly hated in america. Let us not forget the shipload of jews sent back to the nazis in the 1930’s. Since the founding of the state of Isreal, however, jews have been the greatest friend to evangelical christians through the" profecy of the state of isreal." My therory is that the zionist occupation of palastine known as isreal sent out intelegence agents toget grass roots help from america. They went to the only money whores bigger than poloticians, the evangelical preachers. Thus selling the" prophecy of isreal (and setting aside the fact that it can be nowhere directly quoted from the bible) the church became as big a who’re for greed as the poloticians and isreal owns the church. Thus greed sell out another sacred institution in america no diferent than polotics.

One might also note that the church is bought too. If one will note the american sypmathies prior to 1950’s, wrongfully, the jews were the enemy and disliked in america. Today, the" profecy of the state of isreal" run forth and sworn upon by all the conservative movement seems to have no prior standing. It is clear then that the Isrealy intelegence ministries looking for grass roots support for the zionist occupational regime of palastine went to the second largest money whores in america (evangelical preachers) and sold this little" profecy" (which somehow noone can directly quoute from the bible, go figure). And no, I can’t spell

“Donating to the People, from the People, by the People, for the People.”

It’s also worth noting that the quality of politicians has deteriorated since this time due to successful elections being more to do with fellating the biggest donors than possessing the greatest political savvy.
