We are at the point in the political process right now that’s indicative of why America doesn’t work anymore.
Candidates are beginning to announce their intentions, but they aren’t going to the voters. They’re prostrating themselves before monied interests.
If they get the money, they get to continue their campaigns; if they don’t get the money, they disappear. It’s that simple. By the time we get to cast a vote, the field will have been whittled down to only those candidates who support corporate interests.
And then, while they’re stomping on your face with their star-spangled boots, they’re going to tell you that this is what you voted for.
