coup d'état - the sudden deposition of a government - mostly by arms...sometimes legally.
U. S. Supreme Court decision Thursday, January 21, 2010: corporations may spend freely to support or oppose candidates for president and Congress.
Scenario: A U.S. Senator, who has received a two million dollar contribution from an insurance corporation to help his/her re-election campaign is soon to vote for health care reform not favorable to the corporation...what do you think his/her vote is going to be?
"With its ruling today, the Supreme Court has given a green light to a new stampede of special interest money in our politics. It is a major victory for big oil, Wall Street banks, health insurance companies and the other powerful interests that marshal their power every day in Washington to drown out the voices of everyday Americans. ... We are going to talk with bipartisan congressional leaders to develop a forceful response to this decision." - President Barack Obama.
Mr. Prez, talk with "bipartisan" congressional leaders?...get real...they are peeing in their pants over this...already calling it a victory for "freedom of speech".
The United States as we know it, ceased to exist today. Welcome to, as Tom Harper at who hijacked our country puts it...Corporatocracy.
I don't know about you, but I am majorly depressed by this news.
