3. Life imitating Art
Most people realize that this is indeed true, politicians are bought.
If not for the names, you would think this was about the Corleone Family
with Walker and Ryan two of Vito's sons, Michael and Sonny.
The hard part is, trying to get most of the people, who are truly intelligent,
to believe this. They have a vested interest in corruptness so they will support
them at all cost.
Just the subject matter alone, buying politicians should outrage everyone, yet
we do nothing. Same game for the past 40 years I've been following it.

5. Has there been any follow-up
on the crimes committed by SCOTUS judge Thomas? IF OUR "justice dept." would do their job,and prosecute Thomas for breaking the rules that all judges are supposed to obey, maybe "Citizens United" can be overturned. At the very LEAST, OUR PRESIDENT should publicly announce the crimes that Thomas has (allegedly) committed, including NOT recusing himself from "Citizens United."
Thomas' wife is a tea-party lobbyist. He did not even claim her income (which was very sizable)on his tax returns for 20+ years.
"They" put Al Capone away for life, for income tax evasion but have filed "0" charges against Thomas.
It is clear that "both" parties are actually one party > a "Wall Street government."
If we do not start massive demonstrations, we don't stand a chance. "They do not rest.
We also need to impeach Thomas (should be easy) and Scalia (harder probably). That would lend more credibility to our cause, but I think we have all we need.
