You know what, I was just reading an article where Jimmy Carter was being interviewed and he said the Citizens United ruling (I think it is called
that) which basically lets corporations donate unlimited money to political campaigns was one of the worst rulings in the history of the United
He linked that ruling directly to the current polarization of politics, and that makes complete sense to me. Corporations can out-spend citizens and
they should not be running our democracy, but they honestly are.
We don't have a Democracy any more in the U.S. - the people have no voice. That's due to the fact that corporations are able to spend so much money on
spewing out false facts on both sides of the isle. In fact, it is no longer illegal for lies to be said on television, that was another ruling that
happened during the Bush presidency.
The second reason the people have no voice in our country is because a gigantic amount of policy seems to be made in intelligence agencies that have
no oversight and operate outside the realms of our Democracy.
But there is hope - congress is doing so #ty right now, with an approval rating of 5%, that I am starting to hope they all get voted out. In order to
have good / ethical leadership in a country, that leadership needs to be held accountable for their decisions to the population.
If our leadership is incapable of acting in an ethical matter, I see no problem from an ethical standpoint with Europe, South America, Russia and the
Eastern block declaring war on the U.S. and wiping out its leadership. No one gets a free ride from accountability.
I just hope that after they wipe out the corrupt leadership, they help us rebuild
