    When Republicans foisted “Citizens United” on America, what they meant was “Citizens united in reducing voter access for ‘those people’”.

    White Wealthy Men hated losing “The power” to anyone else, which I find interesting. White women did not rank, less wealthy white men did not rank, black or brown men did not rank and black or brown women obviously did not rank.

    So a wealthy old white man of power like Mitch McConnell finds it very “rank” that black women are becoming a voting block with power. More power to them. And to all the groups that could not vote before.

    Now if we can just let them vote we might have a democratic republic.

    —) Psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud theorized the concepts of Ego, Id, and Superego. I wonder if he ever thought of the “Super-ID”? I guess it took psycho-anal political analyst Sigmund Fraud for that. (—

    One of the dangers to democracy always was money in politics.

    “united” in helping that there policeman hold open the door, is our Justice Roberts. “Don’t shoot” until you see the gunman has clean got away before you arrest all the customers and fleece them once more just cause you can in a GOP run store.

    I’m guessing that if Mitch McConnell ever lost an election, he would probably try to pull a Trump and claim his opponent stole his election.

    [insincere apologies for trotting out this old song parody of mine—but it’s as relevant now as it was years ago when I first wrote the dang thing!]

    The Supreme Court decided that a bribe can be nice

    Only IF it’s a corporate bribe

    They attack with their PACs and other such-like vice

    But I don’t belong to that tribe

    I don’t have the money

    To buy polit’cal honey

    Or give Congress my shirt and coat

    My bribing funds are lacking

    From pollution I am hacking

    Oh, you can’t buy a vote with a vote

    Without enormous bank loan

    No candidate shall I own

    So he can my burdens tote

    Corporations don’t borrow

    They buy (much to our sorrow)

    Oh, you can’t buy a vote with a vote

    With a vo-ote, with a vo-ote

    Oh, you can’t buy a vote with a vote

    A PAC’s love is epic

    Though it makes me feel dyspeptic

    And it gets both my sheep and goat

    My resources for bribing

    Are rapidly subsiding

    Oh, you can’t buy a vote with a vote

    They’ll spend a few U.S. mints

    On TV advertisements

    Each attack we will learn by rote

    But in my dejection

    I’ll sit OUT this election“Cause no power can I wield

    In this uneven playing field

    No, you can’t buy a vote with a vote

    The Greedy Old Pricks will do anything to win an election except get more votes. They know they’re dying off and unpopular amongst younger voters.

    A Texas man was arrested on charges that he voted in the 2020 Democratic primary while on parole. He could face as much as 20 years in prison.

    More than a year later, Rogers was arrested on charges that he voted in last year’s Democratic primary while on parole. Under Texas law, it is illegal for a felon to “knowingly” vote while still serving a sentence, including parole.

    Dark-money GOP fund funneled millions.

    The group Donors Trust poured millions of dollars to organizations that pressed claims of voter fraud after Joe Biden defeated Donald Trump.

    I don’t understand the resistance to showing your ID to vote. In Idaho we have had that law for quite some time and I cannot think of a more proud moment than when I get to show my ID to vote. I’m happy to participate in keeping our elections legitimate. I have to show my ID many times in a regular day… why would I be offended to show it to vote?

    Here’s a thought experiment, and I know that the basic premise is quite a stretch—but the logic is airtight once that basic premise is accepted. WHAT IF Black (and brown) people tended to vote Republican, whereas white folks tended to vote Democratic? Would the Republicans try to suppress the votes of the aforementioned white folks? Why, of COURSE they would! The interesting thing to speculate upon would be what forms the voter suppression would take. Discuss amongst yourselves.

    We are not politicians or public thinkers; we are the rich; we own America; we got it, God knows how, but we intend to keep it if we can by throwing all the tremendous weight of our support, our influence, our money, our political connections, our purchased Senators, our hungry Congressmen, our public-speaking demagogues into the scale against any legislature, any political platform, any presidential campaign that threatens the integrity of our estate. —Frederick Townsend Martin 1888

    Funny stuff. Before Citizen’s United the name on the wheelbarrow was UNIONS.

    All this did was level the field. Unions have been buying elections for 80-90 years, maybe longer.

    I would be perfectly willing to stop ALL contributions from ALL groups, companies, unions, advocacy organizations, etc. But it has to be all or none. If corporations are not “people”, then that rule must be applied to ALL entities other than individual citizens.
