How did it get to this point?
Here’s my short and sweet take - money.
We’ve known for years that we have the best Congress money can buy. We joke about it and then watch as the courts decide corporations are people and spending limits are unconstitutional and the rich get richer and so on…and now, ONE MAN is in a position to create the next Republican Presidential Candidate by spending millions of dollars (and he has billions, so this is essentially pocket change) so that ONE ISSUE can go his way.
An issue that is NOT a major one. NOT one that affects hunger, oil, employment, the environment…anything that might constitute a necessity to live and liberty.
No…ONE ISSUE. A ban on an activity that millions of Americans enjoy. To prohibit an activity…not because it’s wrong, or dangerous, or harmful.
But because it would negatively affect his profits.
Welcome to Whathefuckistan, where the world is upside down.
More after Spring Break (where the decline in morals is very evident, thank you).
