    Nothing will change until we get campaign finance reform.

    The way its set up now we're fighting a hundred-headed monster. Every time we chop off one head two more spring up.

    The wealthy own the system...which means they own the dialogue and they own the politicians. Until we get private money out of elections, they will continue to pay whatever it takes to own the pols and write the laws.

    From the Keystone pipeline, to coal fired plants, to the next war for oil, we won't change a thing without publicly financed elections.
