  •  Fascinating blog on the NDAA (2+ / 0-)

    Will research it more when my schedule permits (read: after the election).

    When Democrats retake the House one of the first orders of business will be campaign finance reform. When the Citizens United decision was handed down I severely strained numerous friendships in staunchly resisting a Constitutional amendment. In fact, I found myself on the receiving end of quite a few incredulous stares and scathing emails after welcoming the decision. I saw an opportunity and here is why.

    I agree with your reasoning concerning the potential after-effects of passing the NDAA. Bearing that in mind, I think the Citizens United ruling came at a perfect time. It mobilized a grass-roots opposition that will matriculate up to Congress while a popular incumbent President was prepared to weather the storm of massive opposition corporate dollars. Propitious timing that might lead to actual reform without costing us an election.

    Bloggers such as yourself will stand in readily accessible contrast to corporate media while campaign finance reform staunches the flow of corporate money into politics. We can save democracy and restore the American dream if we have the will to persist. We must remain committed and strong.

    We must not relent.
