We learn how billionaires like the Koch Brothers use their money to buy elections. We even get to see Don McGahn, Trump White House Counsel, along with two other Koch picks, completely stop the FEC from implementing reforms. And we see Scott Walker takes away workers union rights in Wisconsin. The good thing of this latest election is that Wisconsin put Walker out of office after eight years of union busting.

Having just voted in mid term elections.....I can think of some "winners" who are probably owned by dark money payments from the volumes of negative ad postcards which inundated our mail boxes. I thought we were supposed to elect "good" people who were hard workers, well-informed and made conscientious choices which were for the benefit of their constituents. Is that becoming a thing of the past ? Are Tulsa schools left in such bad shape to purposely promote a future voter base that can be easily manipulated ? The state of
a government by and for the people is being seriously challenged by the monied who want more. More money, more control, and that insidious heady power. And once they have it they want to protect it at all costs.

The "greatest threat to our democracy" (which the United States is not, since it's a representative republic) is not the evil corporations, which offer jobs and stock dividends, but rather the UNIONS which serve as a money laundering scheme for DEMOCRAT politicians.
