US “Elections”

Want to know what’s going on in America? Reading foreign newspapers is a good place to start.  Here’s an article from the UK Guardian that didn’t get a lot of coverage in the US:  “US Election System Criticised over Finance Rules and Voting Restrictions.”

Of course anyone with good eyes and ears already knows that some major players are doing their best to make sure that US elections are bought and paid for.  But I know some people who are still voting along party lines, not realizing that the US each year edges closer to having one party, a corporate party.

The old joke about vote early, vote often is closer to reality.  Money is speech.  Donate early, donate vast sums.  Then donate more.

Forget Pax Americana.  We have PAC America.
