By Nancy Pelosi and John Sarbanes, Published

Americans have seen it on their televisions and heard it on their radios: political ads backed by unnamed sources; the work of so-called advocacy groups backed by undisclosed donors; damaging policy agendas orchestrated by special interests; endless money muddying the waters of our debate with confusion and voter suppression.

That's why the Injustices that voted for this making it possible should be kicked off SCOTUS and into a Gulag.

Thanks for posting this Angelika. I know that here in the U.S. we will NEVER do anything serious about the issue of global climate change until we have a chance of electing officials who are not in the pocket of Big Oil and the other dirty energy corporations!

Very true Linda- so FIND THOSE first, then elect them.There ARE a few out there but they need votes (and funding, grassroot funding!), the earlier people start to realise this, the better.
