Supreme Court Building with a Facade. I took this photo last summer. It seemed like a look the current court deserves. (Image by rob kall) DetailsDMCA
Today the five Supreme Court psychopathic scum who vote together for corporations and against people, for big money and against democracy vomited out a decision that could be the one that irreversibly puts the nail in the coffin of American democracy and the middle class.
Roberts, Scalia, Alito, Thomas and Kennedy are florid traitors who have opened up the floodgates for total debasement of the political system. While Citizens United made it easier to funnel money from outside the US, today's McCutcheon decision will enable any wealthy person to funnel money from foreign people, companies, agencies and governments, including Al Qaeda, including BP, including North Korea and Iran and Israel, into any election.
It's simple. Say I'm a billionaire. I open an account in, for example, Germany. The government of Iran wires $5 million to my account, or, they use a few intermediaries to hide the source of the transfer. I make donations totalling $5 million, from a different US account, to four senatorial campaigns, ten house of representatives campaigns, six gubernatorial campaigns and half a dozen judicial campaign.
There is no way to stop such a process. It will happen. It has happened. The only way to stop it is to put limits on how much an individual can give and to not allow corporations to influence elections at all.
Alan Grayson has submitted legislation to prevent foreign money being used in elections. But it's hard for me to see how it is possible to detect and prevent the kind of scenario I've described.
The US has always had a corrupt system and the wealthy have always been able to buy influence legally and illegally. Now, the traitors in the supreme court have opened the floodgates and the flood will come from outside the US as well as from within.
There is no way to characterize the five justices as anything other than traitorous, psychopathic scum.
They should be in jail, not re-making the laws of the land.
And if you are still under the delusion that electoral politics is the way to make change happen, the depth of your detachment from reality has just been made much deeper. It will take strong non-electoral actions by masses of Americans to undo what these traitorous psychopaths have done. Today we have seen true evil. Sadly, most of the people who usually talk about evil, Evangelical Christians, have no clue that their votes have enabled this heresy.
