    Robert Maguire, Bill Moyers and Company, August 29, 2014: Dark Money Hits $50 Million, Most Still to Come

    This article by Robert Maguire should be read by everyone. It describes in easy to understand language and vivid graphs how our campaign finance system is all f**ked up...favoring and protecting the big money donors who prefer their anonymity.

    I was going to extract a few paragraphs but it wouldn't do justice. Read the article and you'll be enlightened and MAD about what a Sh*tty system we have...made all the worse by the SCOTUS Citizens United 2010 ruling. I guess it hit my hot button more being from a swing state and also being engaged in voter registration and canvassing for candidates...but now listeneing to endless mindless political ads on TV.

    People should be outraged. I am.

    "Schmidt" I'm surprised; I said this a million years ago; "everything in this country can be bought" including Uzi's, so nothing new. Here in FL the corrupt crook Scott is up for election and got already $750,000 from the sugar industry, who wants to keep poluting our beaches, so what else is new? etc. This corruption will in the end make this country a pure "dictatorship" by the rich and powerful ( like the Pentagon etc.); "democracy" is already long gone, sorry to say
