    Sadly, today our country has a system of government that allows the wealthy and corporate interests to buy the law-makers and even the laws they want.

    And to me, this seems to be the cause of so much that is harmful and counter to the wishes of our citizens.

    Why is climate change a hoax?  Why does healthcare reform end up being a big gift to the insurance companies?  Why are banks allowed to manipulate credit ratings and interest rates?  Why do we need two failed wars?  Why do our laws protect gun and ammo sales but not human life?  Why does congress insist on taxes breaks for the wealthiest Americans?  

    All these things occur or are facilitated by a system of government that allows the wealthy and corporate interests to buy the law-makers and the laws they want.
