The only way to end this is to go to a one vote policy. Each person gets one vote.
This will entail taking the money out of politics. Money is not speech. Money is bribery.
Every politician who takes campaign donations from any source other than individuals should be impeached for their unethical practices. That which is legal is not always ethical just as that which is illegal is not always unethical. Many of our laws in America amount to no more than legalization of corruption. Many of our laws amount to little more than legislatively outlawing beneficial substances such as Hemp based on corrupt influences.
Take, for instance, GMO corn vs hemp. Hemp could save human beings millions. Hemp would be good for the environment or not as harmful as chopping down trees. However, we have corporations in America which would lose money and whole industries that would go out of business if we switched to hemp. Hemp would benefit millions of Americans.
Conversely, GMO corn benefits a few billionaires such as the Monsanto gang of thugs. GMO corn causes huge problems for small farms and farmers in that, if one GMO genetically altered seeds fall into a small farmers crop, that farmer is legally liable to pay fees to Monsanto.
That should be the other way around. If GMO corn seed or seed of any type infects the crops of a farmer close to the Monsanto fields, Monsanto should be liable to the farmer for spreading their disease ridden pestilence.
GMOs profit the few at the expense of the many. Why? Because of bribes which are legally termed “campaign donations.”
The FCC supposedly owns the airwaves. Each candidate running for office should be alloted two weekly 15 minute time slots. That is all. Each politician should be allowed a website and allowed to create a facebook and twitter account. Each politician should be made to conduct town hall meetings to explain their platform.
No politician should be allowed to take monies from Corporations.
No SuperPacs should be allowed. These SuperPacs should be legislatively banned.
If a commercial is aired in support of a candidate, the sponsoring entity should be made plain. At the bottom of the screen, there should be, in bold, the Corporate Logos and Names of each sponsor.
This would make plain why a candidate is being sponsored.
No corporation should be able to directly or indirectly donate campaign funds to a political candidate.
It is time to take the corruption out of politics. It is time that we have a 3rd and 4th party in America. It is time for real transparency. Not the faux Obama Hope and Change transparency. It is time to hold politicians accountable. If that means jailing a President after an impeachment and trial, fine. Good.
I don’t care to what party a candidate pretends to be loyal. At this time, they are all loyal to the Party of Greed. Yes, even Obama.
Less than half of America believes that the political parties are good for this nation. Less than half of America are loyal to the DNC and GOP.
How are these two parties representative of America if they cannot, will not and will never represent more than half of the populace.
This is not Democracy. This is not representation. The only “people” being represented in today’s America are the Banks and Corporations.
Yet, individuals amounting to roughly 40% of America believe that the political parties are who is needed to run this country.
From what I can see, these partisans and their corrupt parties are running America into the ground.
The real traitors in America are not Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden. The real traitors are members of and voters for the GOP and DNC.
“So it should be no surprise that “follow the money” beginning at the local level should extend to the formulation of US foreign policy, where money also talks. Adelson wants a war? He just might get it if he backs the right GOP horse. And don’t think for a second that a President Hillary will be any different. She also has monied interests behind her who wouldn’t mind seeing Iran get its comeuppance. Where is the peace candidate? Looking for money”.
