  •  There is only one way I believe has any chance... (14+ / 0-)

    before we are so far gone there is no return (if we aren't there already.

    The people must rise up and march on Washington in the millions demanding all outside money be removed from campaigns, a constitutional amendment clarifing that legal constructs aren't actually people and strict simple to enforce anti corruption laws are passed removing any easy ways for politicians to be overly influence.

    And a P.S. to the SCOTUS that any more funny stuff and we will be back to impeach you, given we are kind enough not to send the traitors home then.

    Without a massive movement of people to overwhelm any attempts by the media to belittle and marginalize our probabilities of getting our government back seem very slim to me. The media plays all sides against each other keeping us too fragmented to likely get anywhere in the long run, so it must be fast strong and decisive, not just to prevent issue hijacking, but to make it clear to all Americans this is the real deal or the media ill play parlor tricks causing confusion and discouraging more to join us.

    Its a stark reality, but its so stark because we have allowed them to take us way too far down the rabbit hole. They control almost all levers of power, but the trump card of mass populist uprising.

    I have put a lot of thought into this and honestly don't see any other likely way that doesn't include millions getting off their ass and risking something to get their democracy back.

    When the Republicans are in power they get what they want and when the Democrats are in power they still get what they want. At what point do people finally see it is just theater? ~ Me
