2. Great, uh huh... it does seem to be the American Way. We can eat ice cream to feel better, though!

We can support getting $$$ out of politics not only with the 8 ways listed in the last link in the OP, but also by eating ice cream! That's also very American, but it has to be Ben & Jerry's...

TRUMANSBURG, N.Y. — A co-founder of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream attended the 2015 GrassRoots Festival of Music and Dance this weekend to promote the Stamp Stampede, a campaign aimed at reducing the influence large corporations have on politicians and elections.

“It’s about the power of numbers of people over huge amounts of money,” said Ben Cohen.

Whatever you may care about … the reason why things are screwed up is because politicians are being paid large sums of money to pass laws that benefit those who already have so much at the expense of everyone else.



I LOVE these guys! And their ice cream is yum, a nice perk!! Go Stamp Stampede!!
