4 Years Since “Citizens United” – Time to Amend It

We Need A Democracy Movement To Fix This Shit

I was outraged by this concept, still newly-minted in my brain, of corporate personhood. Now that corporate power had been constitutionalized via Supreme Court precedent, how long, I wondered, was it going to be before all elected officials were 21st Century versions of Manchurian Candidates or Stepford Wives, mindlessly regurgitating talking points programmed in them by the ultra-rich…? Oh, my God. It’s already happened.

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn Chateau likes progressive politics and loves the canines. In fact, she writes fiction about Chester (the Alpha Bichon) and his friends--always with a dash of humor and a dab of poli-sci. Although JoAnn's views are augmented by her former professional life in Psychology and Information Science, don't take everything she says toooo seriously -- what you think and do is much more important! Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.
