I wrote this in January of 2014, but, man, is it spot on. I just read it again and now I pass it on once again. In today’s political climate with Antichrist traitor Trump ready to blast apart our constitutional republic, this is as relevant as the day I wrote it. So here it is:

“On another sad note – sad for me, at least – is the Supreme Court today, on the heels of its decision in Citizen United two years ago, now saying unlimited campaign finance is legal for everybody.

Man, what a disaster this is going to cause.

It used to be in this country there was at least the pretense that we voters had the final says in who was elected. Campaign financing was limited and some candidates actually could win without spending millions more than his/her opponent.

Not anymore.

With this new ruling, it opens the door for people of money to get behind their man/woman and spend the heck out of a campaign to get their person in office. It widens the gap between the super rich and the poor and further diminishes the middle class.

Republicans – the party of big business (read money) – loves the ruling and the Democrats are looking for the biggest foxhole to duck for cover.

Wow, this is bad for our country.

As I have written before, at some future point this county will have a revolution. The poor and the middle class will eventually rise up against the Plutocracy that is being created and that will be the end of one of the greatest powers in history of this planet.

Until then, the rich will get richer and will gain more and more power. It was Lord Acton in 1887 who wrote, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.”

That is absolutely true.

Then there is Niccolo Machiavelli, the man whose name lives on in the word “Machiavellianism”

Machiavelli wrote in “The Prince” that people generally use cunning and duplicity in achieving their aims. And if I give you carte blanche, as the Supremes did today, people with the means – money – will use all their Machiavellianism means to achieve absolute power, which of course leads to absolute corruption.

So beware all of us. We are now going to head into some of our country’s worse dark years. Grab a potato sack and head for the woods. If you can.”

Be well pal.

Be careful out there.

Have a great day.

You are loved.
