What was once condemned by death is now condoned by debt.

Society laughs when they hear "New World Order", while the corporate comedians are laughing in the safety of their penthouse's, knowing all too well their paradigm is in full swing. They're simply waiting for everyone else to catch on so they can hammer the final nail of their totalitarian take over.

Lobbying restrictions will not do it, elections need to be 100% publically funded thereby putting public servants back on the "WE THE PEOPLE" payroll. There need to be vast restrictions on going to work in industries overseen while in office - to avoid bribery after the fact so to speak as well.

Lets say you're one of the CEO's in the health care industry. Is it not your right to independently support a candidate because you like their views? That's the whole issue here, PAC's are something that should be legal, a super PAC just has more money. Even if you say a corporation can't spend money to support a candidate on their own they can just give that money to their board with the understanding that they'll do it.

Removing the money from politics isn't viable.

The only reason this system failed, capitalism , failed and the government failed is because we failed.
Obviously, as this video pointed out there is a system in place, a system that this 1% has taken advantage of while we balk, kick and scream against participating because we are lazy and want instant gratification.
All of these "elite" regardless of how much money they came from are highly educated. They had a thirst for knowledge and a drive to gain it and use it. They achieved the American Dream and we are pissed off, jealous and full of envy.

I would think it would be time to pull the big girl panties up and realize it takes money to beat money.
It take highly educated and driven people doing more than complaining, carrying signs and rioting.

Well, since half the country now believes that education is the work of the devil, that won't happen.
