Selling America to the highest bidder

How's that for selling our country to the highest bidder? More than half of all political donations have come from 158 wealthy families. Note that there are 320 million people in America.

Is it any wonder that the rich keep getting government help to get richer, which everyone else struggles to stay afloat? This is why America has socialism for the rich and capitalism for the poor.

Thanks to the five Republicans on our Supreme Court, money is now considered "speech," which makes bribery perfectly legal. (For all of their faults, the four Democrats on the court disagreed with the Citizens United decision. Unfortunately, thanks to terrible decisions in past presidential elections, the Democrats are in the minority.)
