The End of Democracy 

Folks, elections do indeed have consequences, as we have seen in the 5-4 Supreme Court ruling on "Citizens United... " affirming corporate "personhood." Each of the majority justices was appointed under a Republican administration.

It is obvious from Republican congressional "stonewalling" of President Obama's agenda that this party is aligned lock-step with mega-corporate interests - the Democratic Party being similarly-aligned only to a lesser extent.

Since "money" is now "free speech" mega-corporations, with their unfettered and unlimited financial resources, can hold both the president and Congress hostage to their collective agenda - much as a terrorist might - thus rendering the entire democratic process of little consequence.

Plan on seeing continuing taxpayer-funded Wall Street mega-bailouts, out-sourcing of jobs and resulting home foreclosures, endless "War on Terror"-driven profiteering, co-opting of mom-and-pop main street legislation - as in the health care bill debacle - and the de-funding, and eventual privatizing, of Social Security and Medicare.
