How about Senator Hatch's 12 million campaign that was not needed?
The amount of money being spent by various groups on all sides to purchase our
leaders is obscene.Citizens United MUST be overturned. Campaign
finance reform with teeth MUST be passed.
It costs money to keep our nation free from despots and from people inside and
outside that want to destroy our form of government for the people and by the
people. The new equation the Supreme Court of the United States of
America through a wrench into the situation and history by allowing a continual
flow of money coming from all of the above. Candidates had an interest in
winning and were directly responsible for their ads.Now anyone, even
a foreign government can advertise, indirectly for a candidate that they can use
to weaken our ability, economically, defensively, offensively, psychologically,
emotionally, even spiritual to tear our country down.I don't
think the Constitution of the United States of America signers and founders ever
thought that our politics of elections would come down to this mess. Have we sold the farm to outside interests? Who controls our destiny with the
media choosing their type of candidate and President for 4-years and gives him
every opportunity without questioning any of his decisions?We are
being led down the crimson path. Our military before 1776 to the present have
given their lives for freedom, liberty and the country we love.
