Disenfranchised


I wonder how our forefather would feel knowing this Supreme Court ruling, which effectively takes away the most basic tenet of our democracy—one man one vote is the now the law of the land?

With their immense spending power, corporations will put hand-picked candidates  into office.

A revolution has happened and none of us saw it coming because powerful corporations will decide elections from now on. The will of the electorate be damned.

Even more frightening:

no one has demanded an explanation;

too many of us still do not understand what has happened;

I hear few voices objecting to this obscene ruling;

no oratory,

no outcry.
