Best Elections Money Can Buy

The Supreme Court granted individual rights to corporations, yet again. Organizations will have few handcuffs in throwing big money to political campaigns, under the guise of free speech.

Funny, when I e-mail Senator Max Baucus I find he only accepts mail from Montana constituents. His contribution list includes many for-profit healthcare companies with no, as in zero, facilities in his state.

Meanwhile, American political consultants advise candidates in Ukraine. How soon before their candidate gets a LL Bean coat and a pickup truck to cover sharing their nuts with a Cosmopolitan electorate?

It's time to tune out. The system is already distorted by big money. The Government-Industrial Monstrosity, Eisenhower's MIC on steroids, will enter "election-roid rage."

Corporations and unions will funnel tax deductible money to campaigns or related 527 organizations. Meanwhile, a Blue Congress tries to rename nonprofit community hospitals as "private tax exempt facilities."

A pox on the Red & Blue houses and their corporate sponsors, both full of meanness & greed.
