Accountability For The "Greediest Family On Earth"

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/04/06/1289944/-Accountability-For-The-Greediest-Family-On-Earth?detail=email#

If the past decade has taught the poor ordinary American voter anything, it's that no one is ever really at fault.

When a Republican Administration proceeded to discard the morality and respect for basic human rights enshrined in the Geneva Convention, unleashing a systematic regime of torture, "rendition," "black sites" and "collateral damage" in the name of prosecuting a war based entirely on lies, and killing hundreds of thousands in the process, no one was held accountable.

 Cry for a Focused Campaign to End the Rule of Money

http://www.nationofchange.org/mccutcheon-should-become-rallying-cry-focused-campaign-end-rule-money-1397135943

While some still believe the United States is the greatest democracy on Earth, the US is actually a plutocracy, a government ruled by the wealthiest. The recent Supreme Court decision in McCutcheon will subject us to an even stronger plutocracy that no one will be able to deny. The ‘rule of money’ will become more deeply entrenched at a time of economic and environmental crisis.

In the US today, a small group of people rule over hundreds of millions of us through a government corrupted by money; and controls the economy through mega-businesses that receive special treatment from that government, prevent entrepreneurial competition and control tens of millions of people through low wages and high debt. The plutocrats fund the only two parties allowed to run for office and the people are manipulated by fear to vote against their interests in a mirage democracy of rigged elections.  To read more, click here

 

 The Supreme Court ruling on campaign donations: Government of, by and for the rich
4 April 2014
The United States Supreme Court ruled 5-4 Wednesday to remove the cap on the total amount of money individuals can contribute to political campaigns, eliminating yet another constraint on the direct domination of the financial oligarchy over political life.
The ruling in the case of McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission overturns a 1976 Supreme Court decision that set the limit, currently at $123,000 on total campaign contributions during each two-year election cycle. While the ruling leaves in place the limit on contributions to individual candidates, currently set at $2,600 per candidate per election, it is only a matter of time before this too is struck on the basis of the same logic.
In a dissension from the bench, Associate Justice Stephen Breyer noted that the ruling increases the maximum amount of political contributions to “the number infinity.” He added that “today’s decision may well open a floodgate” to campaign contributions by the rich.  To read more, click here
