    Luckily, we never had democracy in the first place – thanks to the Founding Fathers and their Electoral college.

    I do believe the Supremes have done more damage to “democracy” in the last 15 years, going back to the Bush/Gore, than any other negative impact in history. The Roberts court will go down in history as the one that finally killed off any semblance of political impartiality.

    Reblogged this on Views from the Hill and commented:
    This really says it all. Our politicians have done great harm to our country in the last 20 years, but the Supremes have put the last nails in the coffin of democracy.

    Thanks for sharing. I was watching the co-authors of the 9/11 report earlier this week and they noted the dysfunction in Congress is now being deemed a threat to national security, as no true governance is occurring. Then, the Supremes do these numbers which make us much closer to an oligarchy. I saw last night that people are not voting because they don’t care who is in charge anymore because no one is listening to them.

    As I have commented to Barney (from where I was referred here), I am waiting for the Constitutional Amendement that gives corporations the franchise to vote. With fewer citizens going to the poles, politicians needs someone with a vested interest voting for them.
