We’ve spoken a bit about this issue and pointed readers towards news articles regarding the Supreme Court’s decision supposedly in support of “free speech.” It’s long been apparent for many folks in this country that “free” speech “ain’t free.” Apparently, mo’ money gets you mo’ speech! Many of us have known that the oligarchs have called the shots for a long time. It’s just that there was a time they hid their hand to give the people the illusion this was a government by and for the people. Truth is, decisions always have been made by and for the benefit of those with interested in the oligarch of the nation.
Worried about the so-called Illuminati? Maybe you’d better start looking at the money people who are the true behind the scenes puppetmasters. Well, it seems now that they have been able to buy a court to their liking, they can do it overtly. The New World Order is here—bought and paid for and marked with a stamp of approval of the U.S. Supreme Court. The following opinion piece makes some interesting points:
The Supreme Court’s War on Democracy
The conservative-controlled court is taking out one campaign finance law after another. Will Americans keep going to polls if they know it doesn’t matter?
On Wednesday, the U.S. Supreme Court fired another salvo in its war on democracy with its decision in McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission (PDF). In the 5- 4 opinion, the conservative members of the Court joined forces to ensure that the wealthy in our country have even more influence in American politics. I know many of you are thinking: is that even possible? And the answer is yes.
This Supreme Court decision struck a provision of the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 that had limited the aggregate amount an individual could contribute to federal candidates in a year to $48,600 and to other political committees (DNC, RNC, PACs, etc.) to $74,600.
What does this mean as a practical matter? Well, as the dissenting opinion of Justice Breyer pointed out, the Court has now created, “a loophole that will allow a single individual to contribute millions of dollars to a political party or to a candidate’s campaign.”
