72. This is true, and is one reason for this post.

How many elections will be stolen by big money taking advantage of Citizen's United before we unite and actually try to address the problem through direct action?

What is it going to take? The unthinkable happening? An Obama loss to Romney, because Romney had a billion dollars more to spend, compliments of Citizen's United and the 1%? What will we do if that happens? That would be a major tragedy with irreparable consequences, If Obama loses, SCOTUS remains fascist for at least another generation, and there will be no way to ever overturn Citizen's United. The cycle of big money buying elections will continue, and the problem will continually worsen.

The only legislators we'll have left will be those clearly chosen for office by the 1%.

I really don't like what I just saw happen in Wisconsin.

If this same thing happens in the Presidential election, will enough people finally wake up to the fact of how seriously the system has been compromised?
