Money in Politics

Politics, ewww! Yeah I know, but I think this is important since I believe what used to be illegal was now made legal after things like Citizen's United going through the Supreme Court. Does it happen on the left and right? Sure, still it's interesting to see some of the fruits money in politics is bringing to my country. It's also disheartening to see people actively taking steps back after moving forward with things like fighting segregation and such.

The most ironic thing about this video? If it weren't for the communists in Russia in the early 1900's, America wouldn't have the Koch brothers of today funding ads that accuse other people of being communists and such.

Money should never be in politics like it is today and it will tear America apart. The worst part is our elected leaders are letting this happen and selling most every American's future out for the sake of a select few who cut big checks.

Incidentally the Koch brothers are a big pusher for the Keystone XL pipeline. As we can see in Montana, this might not be such a good idea to let that pipeline go through.
