I’ve been saying all along that progressives must insist on getting special interest money out of elections and have candidates raise their own money from their potential constituents. Bernie did it, and so can others with a strong enough progressive message and presence. That means Republicans would continue to take special interest money, but they’d be easy enough to recognize and tear apart because they accepted “big money”.
God damn the Supreme Court for giving corporations “personhood”. But if they were really “persons”, they’d have to pay the same highest tax rate that wealthy individuals pay. It’s wrong, wrong, wrong.
