The Citizens United decision opening up the money spigots for politicians was dangerous for America, and the danger grows every day.
Recently Yahoo.com reported that wealthy folks donated a total of $400 million to presidential candidates who DROPPED OUT during the primaries. You might think that’s money down the toilet, but of course those donors can still claim access and influence with those politicians, many of whom are still active.
Those wealthy donors have a vote, just like you and me, but they have the mega-simoleons to do what you and I can’t do: they can buy access to power and the powerful.
Some people have too much money.
