Watching money taking over political process

The Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, and its latest crime that gets rid of the existing law that limited aggregate contributions from an individual to $123,200 during an election season, allows one to give as much money as they want. Finally, millionaires and billionaires will own our political process — whatever happened to “one man, one vote?” We fought hard for this freedom of a few. We now can sit back and watch the drama unfold as billionaires such as the Koch brothers and Sheldon Adelson spend billions of dollars on right-wing candidates who will in turn surely promise favors of drill, drill, drill, and cut, cut, cut taxes on the rich, while cut, cut, cut our country’s social programs.
