TRAITORS IN THE SUPREME COURT
For OpEdNews: Rob Kall – Writer
It has become clear that the Citizens United Supreme Court decision went beyond free speech. It was a betrayal of American security that opened the gates to an assault on American Demcracy.
It would have been easy and simple for the Supreme court to include in their decision that allowed unlimited funding of advertising by companies and organizations to forbid funds from foreign nations, individuals or entities. The SCOTUS could have blocked contributions by organizations that accepted funding. I’m no lawyer, but it could have been done.
They chose not to. They left the floodgates wide open to make it easy for wealthy sheiks, foreign corporations, even terrorists and terrorist groups to fund advertisements supporting or opposing candidates.
That decision, by five right wing extremist SCOTUS judges, it is now clear, will change the face of American politics as foreign money and the filthy lucre of billionaires, like the Koch Brothers, has tipped the balance in election after election throughout the US. Just as conservative Justices accomplished a coup by interfering with the 2000 presidential elections. Again, these traitors are again turning American justice and Democracy upside down, threatening to perhaps permanently put the USA on a downward trajectory towards third world status and oligarchic rule.
They didn’t do it alone. They did it with the passivity and impotence of Democratic leaders who allowed war crimes and violations of constitutional freedoms to go un-punished, perpetrators un-tried, un-impeached.
It may not be possible to reverse the process. This election, many Republican governors and state level legislators will, after they win election, begin gerrymandering their states to make matters even worse.
That will take the next elections even further from being truly fair and democratic.
The arrogant, aggressive attack on democracy by surrogate organizations with hidden funders will not get better in the next election. It will become more aggressive, with more foreign, billionaire and corporate assault on elections.
There were limitations, restrictions, constraints in place, for the first hundred plus years of the United States. The most powerful corporations and oligopolies, like the railroads in the 1880s, the financial and energy giants now, have plotted and connived with willing politicians to harvest the promise of America’s resources and future.
The germ of selfish destruction was present in the birthing of America. The five SCOTUS traitors may have cast the final blow in ending the founders’ dream.
