Response to Scarsdale (Reply #3)

4. I have had some of the very same thoughts sparked by the question

"what is their end game here?"

It's troubling.

We have the audio of Paul Ryan talking about Trump & the congressman accepting Russian money ... and it
s like it doesn't matter. In the 60s, this would have been front page news and the perpetrators in prison in a heartbeat.

Trump is not just a product of the Russians. The GOP could impeach him at any time. Trump is in power because McConnell and Ryan want him in the Oval office to do their bidding. If they need a pedophile in the senate to keep this going, so be it.

There is something going on.

Citizens United is part of it.

Net Neutrality ... when you lose that, you can kiss off campaigns like Bernie Sanders because the grassroots is dead. One might not agree with Bernie but the freedom you enjoyed of having candidates like him is under serious threat.

Time Inc about to be bought by the Kochs ... in concert with Murdoch & Fox News - means the freedom of the press is being purchased to preach a right wing agenda and develop more dead heads than the ones Trump has.

Election/vote hacking - we still haven't got to the bottom of very suspect stuff going on there.

We're losing the democracy ... to an oligarchy. And it's to the point where they're getting brazen about it - like there is no turning back.

Pretty scary stuff.
