  •  That's what happens (14+ / 0-)

    Politics, at its most fundamental level, is about who lives and who dies.  Who eats and who starves.  Who sleeps warm in a bed at night and who shivers under an overpass.  Those who die have no voice; those who starve cannot march; those who shiver under overpasses cannot bundle campaign contributions.

    The comprehensive, institutionalized corruption in our government and our courts isn't even seen by those inside it anymore.  They're no more aware of it than fish are aware of water.  We all have to demand that "business as usual" is unacceptable anymore, and we're not going to put up with it.  How we do it effectively I don't know, but it is a matter of life and death.  Literally.

    Citizens United defeated by citizens, united.
