Some of those comments were deceptions/ misdirections/ lies. Some were goals for which a bipartisan government could have strove. Some are absolutely true, such as the Citizen’s United comment on which I focus here. This SCOTUS ruling not only allows US citizens to spend obscene quantities of money to put politicians, and in some states, judges, into positions of power those elected will owe to their donors. It also opens a dangerous door for foreign nationals, through their subsidiaries and possibly as private people, to influence our elections. Corporations are not people. They are a group of people motivated to make income. There are many people working for the corporation who will not want their efforts to create profit used to promote a, or ANY, candidate. Christmas bonuses, investments into infrastructure of the company, donations to charitable causes are being spent on divisive ads warning us of impending doom if we vote for…..We already have foriegn nationals coming here to have their babies who, by being born here, are US citizens. Those children are then taken back to their REAL nation and groomed for the day they can come back and vote in our elections. This, along with Citizen’s United, will erode control away from the people born and RAISED in the USA over the next two decades and is a real concern.Obama did say all of those things, but content and context can be so manipulated. We can’t change yesterday, but we can ROCK today and tomorrow. Let’s get the Band back together.Respectfully,C.
