I have certainly seen a lot of progressives on the horn today about the HORRIBLE SUPREME COURT DECISION yesterday to allow unlimited spending by special interest groups, businesses, lobbyists, in all American elections forever.
Common caused responded correctly, "Moments ago, in a stunning decision, theRoberts Court opened the floodgates to out-of-control corporate and union spending in elections. This wrong-headed ruling doesn't just disrupt the way elections work. It poses a direct and immediate threat to the vibrancy of our democracy. An already corrupt system that makes it hard for citizens to have a voice could become a chaotic free-for-all in which ordinary people's voices will be permanently drowned out of the electoral process. Only a popular uprising in response to this decision can save the day. "
However, with Haiti all over the news, the momentous story of Supreme court's activism in changing American democracy has been ignored by too many USA media giants and small-town wannabee media conglomerates.
