2. The Koch Brothers' bid to buy the 2012 election failed utterly.

So I don't see the "obvious need" for a Constitutional Amendment.

Let these people continue to throw their money away with nothing to show for it.

4. Their money succeeded well enough in giving us a Congress that

can't get business done. We need Citizens United to be overturned. Our democracy depends on it. To think otherwise is very naive.

8. Gerrymandering occurred because of Republican majorities bought

by right wing billionaires including the Koch brothers in the states. They don't just fiddle in national politics.

9. That is very dangerous thinking. They failed to elect the President

but corp-money bought lots of elections including local elections like school boards, etc. Our biggest threat is corp-money controlling our elections. They will fix those areas where they failed. We had the luxury of an popular incumbent president. We wont have that luxury in 2014 and 2016.

3. Not quite. We are already a country of the rich, by the rich, and for the rich.

We passed that milestone a while back.
