Special interests and corporations (now known as SuperPacs) contribute to campaign funding to obtain control of their industries through government officials’ cooperation. The very industries that we depend on for our survival, food, pharmaceutical, finance, oil and myriad other industries are literally killing us with their greed and disregard for humanity.
Our over site committees that allow harmful chemicals, hormones and many other disease causing additives to be processed into our food, cause gas prices to soar at will, that produce medical remedies with death as a side effect and crash our economy with shady financial tactics have bought and paid for our lawmakers in order to carry on their heinous practices, free handed.
The candidates in the upcoming national and local elections are dependent on a system that has grown to iron clad proportions. There are daily news reports about how much money is raised and spent as if it’s a sporting event. This corrupt system is as illegal as it gets and no one is doing anything about it.
How about a review board that takes a deep look at how campaign funding correlates to a lawmaker’s voting on bills? We need to stop this system that hog ties our economy to the much publicized 1% and subjects 99% of our population to the extreme greed of “special interest” entities to proceed in “business as usual”.
The illegality and injustice of this is so vast that it’s impossible to respect anyone in the body that governs us. Which politician in our government would champion the demise of this system and sacrifice their gravy train for the good of all?
