I am shocked, absolutely shocked to find that Democracy in America is for sale to the highest bidder!

The US Supreme Court continues it's ongoing campaign to undermine true free speech in America. It undermined democracy itself when it elected George W. Bush in 2000 with Bush v. Gore. Now we have an extension of the money-as-speech doctrine in McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission. There are no limits for the hits of the Supremes. Nothing they do will surprise me.
I don't think there is a grand conspiracy with the Republican Party. I picked up on the trends - the refusal to approve Democratic Presidents' nomination for federal judgeships, the stacking of federal attorneys with incompetent hacks, the in-your-face Clarence Thomas nomination. The signs were all there and Democrats as a group ignored them. I will never give the Democratic Party another dollar. There is no amount of money the 99% can afford to give that will overcome the amount the 1% can afford to piss away.
How many German fascists does it take to overthrow America?
There aren't enough, can't be done.
How many American fascists does it take to overthrow Democracy in America?
