Due to pathetic Democratic turnout in the Congressional election, the Oligarchy is now in control. This is what our elections will look like from here on out, unless we can get money out of politics.
And the only way we can get money out of politics is to get the Republicans out of power. The Republican party loves prostituting for big doners. They have opposed any correction to Citizens United. Many states and cities are passing referendums supporting the overturn of Citizens United but it will have to be done without the support of the Republicans in control.
In fact, liberal ballot measures all across the nation passed with huge margins. Now, ask yourself, if Republicans and Democrats were voting FOR the liberal laws but AGAINST the liberal politicians, isn’t it an undeniable fact that those people are voting against their own best interests? Isn’t it obvious that the unlimited money in politics is making voters into fools, voting for the things they want but against the representatives they need to get those things into law?
It is a fact that negative advertising doesn’t get voters to vote for the opponent, but makes them not want to vote at all. Maybe that’s why this was the lowest voter turn out since 1942.
If you are one of the voters who stayed home, your absence was the same as a vote against anything you want or need. Way to go! You can’t let the negative ads deter you from getting out and voting.
