Something Really Important To Watch

There is a case before the Supreme Court that will be decided this week that has the potential to change the U.S. Government forever, and you should be watching it play out.

Here is the thing. We now have a government run by special interests. You can read how Goldman Sachs runs the U.S. Treasury in our book, The Great Recession Conspiracy, but the same thing applies to health care, agriculture, drugs, etc. etc. The entire IRS book of tax laws is simply a collection of rules favoring one special interest or another. The special interests run the government by making huge campaign contributions to members of Congress willing to carry water for the special interest. In short, we now have the best government money can buy.

If you want a different source, try Henry Waxman's new book, The Waxman Report. It details how a 29 year old lawyer goes to Congress and spends the next 30 years there. He even states plainly that money makes the whole process work and we should quit worrying about it. That is really bad advice.

So the case before the Court is Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission. Citizens United made a movie critical of Hillary. Citizens United wants to be excluded from the 2002 McCain-Feingold campaign finance law. If the Court supports Citizens United, it will basically remove all constraints from corporate cash flowing into government and special interests will rule the government openly.

Stay tuned. It is still your country.
