What I’m wondering right now is with the advent of Citizens United do we now have politicians ( especially state govenors ) who are so bought they do not care if they get re-elected. Obviously, if the voters knew what would happen in their states before they voted for them they would not have been elected in the first place. Their polling numbers are, to say the least ,very low but they just go on trying to bust unions, privatize everything, and in general wreck the country.Their offices and state houses are under seige – they really don’t seem to mind. Is this because their corporate and billionaire masters have guaranteed them employment as long as they get the dirty work done?. I do not believe democracy can exist without the public finance of elections.
