Every four years, mainstream conservatives are told that they have to vote for Republican candidates in order to change the composition of the Supreme Court so that, for example, the Roev. Wade decision which legalized abortion will be overturned.
“WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court took another step Wednesday toward giving wealthy donors more freedom to influence federal elections.
The justices ruled 5-4, in a decision written by Chief Justice John Roberts, that limits on the total amount of money donors can give to all candidates, committees and political parties are unconstitutional. The decision frees the nation’s wealthiest donors to have greater influence in federal elections. …”
Don’t be fooled again.
The Republican Party exists for the sole purpose of catering to its wealthy donors. The Roberts Supreme Court can’t even be trusted to protect our borders or “conserve” the traditional definition of Christian marriage. Now that US federal elections are openly an arena for multibillionaires like Sheldon Adelson, the idea that we can “reform” the system by voting is more far fetched than ever before.
