An "opaque corporate misinformation network" - the Latter Day Republcians

From The Guardian:

"Yes, Donald Trumpís politics are incoherent. But those who surround him know just what they want, and his lack of clarity enhances their power. To understand what is coming, we need to understand who they are. I know all too well, because I have spent the past 15 years fighting them.

"Over this time, I have watched as tobacco, coal, oil, chemicals and biotech companies have poured billions of dollars into an international misinformation machine composed of thinktanks, bloggers and fake citizensí groups. Its purpose is to portray the interests of billionaires as the interests of the common people, to wage war against trade unions and beat down attempts to regulate business and tax the very rich. Now the people who helped run this machine are shaping the government...."

2. That's what I think, too.

They have control of most of the government. They will not let that go.

3. No, they won't. Every RW county in every state will be equipped with

hackable voting machines so that the vote can never be trusted. They're well on their way to finishing this project already; now it will be on steroids. And they'll have plans for these machines to "break down" in a bunch of Dem districts, just for good measure.

4. The dems didn't just drop the ball, they lost the game.

I'm seriously pessimistic about the future of this country.
