Bought And Paid For

by Nash Turley on April 16

In case somehow you were not convinced that we live in a plutocracy not a democracy, check out this brief interview with Alan Grayson, who is the only representative in congress to raise most his campaign dollars with small contributions, he says: “…to a large degree, in both parties, because of the absence of campaign finance reform, the place [congress] is bought and paid for. And the only question is: Do the members stay bought?” He continues: “if we do nothing, you can kiss this country goodbye. Well, pucker up, because right now the millionaires and the billionaires and the multinational corporations are calling the shots with whatever they want”
