You didn’t post something from the Washington Post, you posted the Washington Times. There’s a huge, HUGE difference. One (WaPo) is an actual journalistic outfit. The other is just propaganda put out by a weird cult.
What’s relevant is that I posted a link to a scientific study about how the United States is not a democracy. You’ve been dodging that with your responses about the Washington Whatever.
Bernie Sanders was mentioned because that’s what everyone was freaking out about. His name was on a thing! OMG!
I still don’t know why you brought him up. I thought we were talking about Cory Booker.
If you really care about this issue, you should look at the Wyden amendment (which Booker supports).
Yeah, but do you care about this issue? Do you care about who buys politicians, including Cory Booker? Doesn’t it all seem like legislative theater when the oligarchy has basically bought the entire US Congress? Does is matter to you that the same PAC that is Cory Booker’s top contributor, NorPAC, also contributes to Ted Cruz, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnel, and Lindsey Graham? Do you even know what NorPAC is all about? You might not like what you see if you do a few minutes of research on them.
Does it bother you that his other major donors include Goldman Sachs and a bevy of corporate lawfirms. When is the last thing Goldman Sachs did anything good?
It’s naive to think any of these dudes work for you or me.
